Canon, Nikon or Panasonic?
Hey all I need a little help deciding what camera I should buy. My budget is under $400 and I've been looking for a digital camera with nearly full manual controls (good images at high ISO) and great video quality. I've read a few reviews and narrowed it down to the Canon PowerShot SX20 IS, Panasonic Lumix FZ35 and Nikon P100. I know the Nikon is fairly new but I've read some good reviews about it ( and like the fact that it records in full HD.
Thoughts or suggestions?

panasonic fz35 is a very good camera. It has a very good IS system also. And the lens on the fz is very good. And it takes great pictures.

The P100 is new so there is still a lack of info. If it resolve the poor low light of the p90 it should be a nice megazoom.

What video format does the fz35 record in? and can it be viewed with windows media player and edited with adobe premiere?

720 think only the nikon is at 1080 in the megazoom right now.

Welcome to the Forum. We're delighted that you dropped by.

In the in the P+S class, the king of low light capability is the Canon S-90.
It low light capability comes from its oversize image, the same imager that is used in the Canon G-11.
