These are 2 I'm considering getting for a 20 yr. old. She would use it for landscape shots and pets. I'd like to get one with more than 3x zoom. People in the Panasonic forum complain that it doesn't do a good job in low light and the pet photography would mostly be indoors.

As I stated, the Canon comes with the printer too, which seems to be a good deal.

Any other suggestions would be fine too. I don't want one any larger than the Canon.

This would be her first digital, but she's very good with computers and such, so she'd learn about a camera fast. Thanks!

Although I like the TZ3, I think the Canon A650IS is the better camera. It has a larger processor, higher resolution, manual controls, it's better at low light, takes sharper pictures, and has more natural color (in my opinion). The only thing in favor of the TZ3 is its longer optical zoom, but overall the Canon is better in most ways (again in my opinion). The Canon is also considerably more expensive than the TZ3.

Thanks for your opinion. The printer should've been Pixma, not Pizma! It's a Costco package deal, about $300, so not bad for the 2 I dont think.

I just checked on the price again and it's 250 for both, but we really don't need a printer and I don't know if it would be very easy to sell. Any thoughts? It's an inexpensive printer to begin with, selling for $100 or less. After reading more about the camera, it sounds like the one to go with.

If anyone has any other brand suggestions, let me know. Thanks again!
