Default panasonic softwear

I'm looking to replace my sd800, and looking at some panasonics zs6,5,7. But heard the softwear is hard to work with. These cameras seem to be the closest IQ and features that I want, long zoom,good low light.And compact.The sd800 is a good camera but I would like more of a zoom. Any other camera suggestions welcome.

The software that comes with most cameras is rubbish. There are so many good ones to choose from (many of them free). It puzzles me why anyone would use that stuff.

The only camera that meets all 3 requirements (assuming compact means "fits in my pocket") is the Fuji F70EXR and that is a heck of a lot more complex to use than Panasonic's software. You either need a bigger camera, give up the zoom or give up the low-light. Does anyone read the posts in this forum before making a new thread? I keep saying the same things over and over and over ...

Of course they don't. It's no different than any other forum. It's too much of a bother or they don't know how to use "SEARCH". I normally don't bother posting in this area anymore unless there is a glaring error in information a respondent is giving. Sarah Joyce seems to enjoy responding to the repetitive requests, God love her. Takes a special person to do that. Over and over and over and over and...
