I was surprised to see a Panasonic tv ad for Lumix tonight on UK tv during one of the most watched shows the Big Brother! Maybe it is being shown in US regularily but I have never seen it here.
It had some people outside in the snow and one weedy looking guy taking a photo with FZ5 and shaking from cold but because of the OIS the photo was perfect! And the voice over was praising the Lumix OIS system. In the end they had the two cameras side by side.
Does this mean that Lumix is no longer the biggest secret of the dighicam world???

Good to hear that Ian. I was outraged the other day (last Sunday) when the Sunday Independent newspaper had their list of 50 best digital cameras in a special supplement and there was no mention of neither FZ20 nor FZ5! I almost sent a letter to the editor!!!! :O

I noticed this too just before we were about to go out! Not that i watch big brother :-) but my housemate likes it. So i yelled out a joyful "theres my camera!". And pointed out how they'd only just started advertising it after god knows how many months.
Good to see tho!
