I have narrowed my search to these two cameras and am looking for some advice. Is there a strong difference between these two?

Yes.

The H10 is a compact ultrazoom, the FZ28 is an SLR-like ultrazoom, bigger and heavier.
The H10 has 10x optical zoom, the FZ28 has 18x.
The H10 lacks a viewfinder, the FZ28 has an electronic viewfinder.
The picture quality is much different.

Among other things.

Thanks. After I posted this question I found some threads about both cameras. Looks like the Panasonic has more to offer for about the same price. I appreciate the help.

I actually own and use both cameras. If camera size and price are not serious factors in your decision, you will get a much better camera, greater performance flexibility, and much better image quality with the FZ-28.

Sarah,



Your posts have been extremely helpful. My wife liked the small size of the H10 so I bought one yesterday. Circuit City had it on sale for 229. So far, we love it. I may buy the Fz28 for myself later.

I appreciate everyone's help.

Congratulations on buying the Sony H-10.

It is an excellent camera and I am sure that you will enjoy it and that it will give you great service. If you have followed my Sony H-10 thread you can see from the example photos that it is a very talented little camera.
