I'm looking for an all around camera. I would like a 10x to 12x optical zoom. At least 4MP. Image Stabilization. Time/Date Stamp. Use of LCD also as a viewfinder not just LCD. Would also like if LCD was rotating, but can do without. Burst Mode. Macro Mode. I would really like for there to not be much of a shutter lag, (pictures of kids) Short recycling time. I will be mainly taking pictures of people and sizing them from 4x6 to 8x10. Pictures will also be taken of scenery, action, night, day. I would like to be able to take great pictures in any situation. Picture quality is very important to me.ION Lithium Battery would be great. I don't really want to get an SLR, but if it had everything I wanted than that would be fine, but I would rather have it smaller than that so it is easy to take with where ever I go. I have been looking at the Canon S1 IS and the Panasonic DMC FZ5. Any comments about these two would be great and any suggestion on others I wouldgreatly appreciate. Thank You
