I did some more research and found two excellent Canon SX-10 IS photo samples. This one was taken at the San Digo, California Zoo and it is exactly what peripatetic noted in his post. The lion in this photo is virtually motionless and the ISO setting quite low with outdoor lighting.

Here is the second Canon SX-10 IS photo that I found. It was taken with the Canon EX-430 external flash in the bounce position, and therefore once again the ISO setting remains very low.

Here is another sample photo from the Canon SX-10 IS. It was taken at an ISO setting of 400, and as you might expect it shows a good deal of noise in the shadow areas.

Sorry I wasn't specific enough. 90% of my shots are in very bright light outside of dogs and sheep - action not still. The rest of my shots would be of dogs closer at hand and of family,friends,vacation. I do not need to change lens. I have no idea what ISO differences mean or how to set them - my camera does all the work. I think the UZ sounds like it would fit the bill. Thanks for all your advise.
cheers Lani

Hi Sarah,
Well I went and did it. I held the FZ28 and just couldn't see myself with that camera or one like it. So I stayed true to my 'brand' and got a Pentax K200D.
thanks Lani

Congratulations! I'm certain you'll enjoy it. The K200D is a fine camera.

Potentially a very good choice, especially if you have some old lenses as they will all work. I know currently you were not sure that you would want to stretch the boundaries of your photography but if you do then you have a great tool to do it with.

Looking forward to seeing some of the shots you get with it and hope you will continue to find Steve's a helpful and fun place to hang out.

Happy shooting with your new camera,

Mark

Hi, Ok I took a few quick shots yesterday so I'll see if I can attach one. Let me know if the image size is too big.
