Your old Z-612 was a 6mp camera and much more forgiving of camera movement. The Z-950 is designed to be used when held with both hands and keeping the camera motionless. At 12 mp, the Z-950 is much more sensitive to camera movement. A one handed shooting style will just not work with the Z-950. So I think you are going to have to make some changes.

This is confusing me...
One who doesn't know a lot about digital cameras would think, that a newer camera with more mp would do better pictures? Why is it like that?

Would there be the same problem with the TZ8?

Anny-

Yes, the problem that you have encountered: camera movement while taking one handed photos, is a problem that would affect any camera, even those with IS.
