Well again KenI mention it only b/c you've got obvious talent and a good eye. Not to create problems on the home front. You're still using the FZ30? If so, that will also be next: a DSLR. Start saving my friend. Those lenses and bodies are expensive!
Haha Thanks peter

this set of shots was actually taken with my old sony dscw5. it was a very good point and shoot camera. I enjoyed using it but i felt like i out grew the cam so quickly.

but yip, currently still using the old fz30. This cam is serving me well and yea i am starting to consider making the transition to dslr. maybe canon 30d? there are a few good photo opportunities i have missed due to the fzs lack of lo light performance but as i use the cam more its becoming less of an issue as i find it easier now to identify situation where the fz will need help (fill flash etc)

My nxt upgrade will be a big external flash with diffuser and bounce head. Im sure flash phtography will take a long time to get decent consistant results but im up for the challenge.

at the moment i am very happy with my fz30. its doing a very good job. i dont think you can really appreciate a dslr until you have used a std digi cam. i no that i will be blown away just by the use of hi iso and the improved dynamic range.

thanks again for the kind words peter

I had a FZ20 for about six months before I bought the Rebel XT (350D). In all honesty, the Panasonic was (is) a great camera. DSLR's are the next step, but it's a whole different world gear-wise. Most of the lenses cost what my FZ20 cost me. Then there's the dedicated flash and so on. I think other than high ISO noise problems, the FZ30 is an excellent value. The new SONY Alpha A100 looks like a Canon (and Nikon) killer. If you don't already own a bunch of Canon lenses (and I don't think you do), I'd probably get the SONY over the the 30D.

i like the 350d very much. my old boss has one. i hve neva had a decent play with it but i wouldnt mind owning one. as you mentioned they are very expensive to run with all the dfference and neccesary lenses etc

Yea i have seen the sony. there is a release party thingie for it in NZ shortly. I have been invited so i might pop along and take a look
