However, it is very nice to see that zoom is manual, mechanical zoom ala Minolta 7HI.

Hi Digcamfan,

It seems to be, that you are verry keen on the Samsung Pro815.

Me too :-)

Other options are the Panasonic FZ30, but I notice a NOISE problem there!

I now own a Panasonic FZ20, great camera!

But I read today on: http://www.global-dvc.org/Sony DSC-F939.htm

NEW Sony Cybershot DSC-F939 (?)

12 megapixel

12x zoom

Sony Zeiss Lens

Just all rumors go that Sony soon reveals the long waited successor
of the F828 this summer 2005. After DSC-F707, DSC-F717, DSC-F828
The DSC-F828 is now at his end in stores and availability.

Most likely the F939 will have
10 or 12 megapixel
(
There is an official PDF of the design of the 12 MP sensor floating around.
CMOS sensors like the 3CMOS sensors in DCR-PC1000)
it sure will have a larger buffer and quicker reactiontime
and of course a further improved performance which will
sure blow away former competitors as
Panasonic DMC-FZ20, Canon and Nikon.

So, what about that?

Jan

Interesting thing is that Samsung.com does not even list its digcams at all!!!

Go figure said the absentminded mathematician.

:lol:

Digcamfan,

They do have a website at:

http://www.samsungcamera.com

I have a samsung camera. Tech is good on it but quality on it is crap. Its of course the slim Digimax i5. Regret buying it. But hope you find some information about it at their website. Not sure if they have published anything about it as yet or not but they sure release stuff fast here in Thailand.

vogel,

Don't know about sony products but I am they would always come up with something to kick off competition. And I am sure they are very capable of it!. But with new cams with high technology also comes a very high price. Which I think most of us as I have always said before, would rather go for something of the past that works fine for the future till future products becomes past and in turn works for its future :?

Correct url:

http://www.global-dvc.org/Sony%20DSC-F939.htm



They compare these2 cameras with the Fuji S9000/S9500 which looks like it will be a winner (28-300mm, ISO 1600, Low noise, Manual Zoom ring...)


See specific post for Fuji S9000/S9500 on this forum:

http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=16



I am like you interested in a powerful compact.

Until now, Fuji S9000 is top of my list before Panasonic Lumix FZ30, Kodak P880, Samsung 815, Sony...

The815s are starting to show on a few web sites or preorders.

No one actually shipping yet...
