After owning an FZ20 for a exactly a year, Santa deemed me worthy to receive an upgrade to an FZ30 for Christmas. I haven't really had too much time to play with it yet in between Christmas and New Years festivites, but so far I think it's wonderful. The tiliting LCD and zoom ring were the main reasons for considering the change, and they certainly haven't let me down. My hubby had questioned the move to the FZ30, thinking it would make more senseto make the jump to a DSLR. I'm really glad I stood my ground and inisted on the FZ30. Armed withthis FZ30 and my trusty Raynox DCR250 macro lens I don't think I will be disappointed very often by not being able to get a shot.(Although I did fail miserably trying to shoot fireworks at New Years I think it's me that needs some work on that front! - a tripod is deinitely in order next time).

Sharp shots, Suze, I like the second one.

Non doubt this is a good upgrade, but Imyself prefer to go on with my 1 yearold FZ20 until FZ40 arrives on the shelves. Then I 'll see if I pass to the 40 or (very unlikely, unless a big flop) to take the rebated FZ30 then.

In my recent post I have some fireworks shots, not all of them with tripod (some good ones without) but it's undoubtedly better to have it

Good pics. The little yellow in the bird's neck, the deep dark blue... and specially the lack of noise! How much did you resize them?

Nice to see some shots from a newbie (only as far as the FZ30 is concerned!) in my neck of the woods! I see the first photo was taken at full zoom 420 mm. Superb, both of them.

I must get out a bit more.

Beautiful photos and I really think the FZ30 is a very smart camera...does so many things well.

Very nice shots Suze! I'm sure the FZ30 won't disapoint you! Jim
