I haven't been looking at the camera market over the last few years, though I do know that we are constantly getting more camera for our buck.

What is the general trend over the holidays as far as camera prices, the FZ20 in particular. I know that it was out last holiday season, and I'm lookin to get myself one soon. If the price is going to drop by $50 after Christmas though, I think I can wait. Right now the price is around $400. What do you think?

I purchased my FZ20 just less than a year ago from Circuit City for $509 and received a $50 gift card. Thus: $459 and I used the gift card for two camera cases. I am waiting for a good saleon the FZ30 and then I intend to sell the 20. Need a source for the 30!!!

the '20 came outin summer/early fall of 2004. i got mine in November, for $450. will they drop below $400 anytime soon? hard to tell. i think you might be able to get one for a bit under $400 if you shop around, but it'll likely be a while yet before they fall to $350, even the refurbs are still going for more than that. the FZ20 is a darned good camera, so don't expect to pick one up for under $350 unless you find one used at a garage sale... which, frankly, isn't very likely!

Circuit has the FZ30 on the site now 609.00 when I last checked.

Newegg.com hasFZ30's for $565. I seem to recall seeing them for under $550 somewhere. shop around, you can get a good deal.

best prices for FZ20's are still right about $400.

Thanks guys! That gives me an idea of where the prices have been at over the last year or so. The cheapest I've found is $395, so I think I'll keep waiting now that my A60 is alive and kicking :)

The S2 IS's price is falling pretty fast, but I'm really leaning on the FZ20 side of things just because it looks to be a better still camera (not as good of a video camera).
