hi, my parents bought me the fuji f700 but its only 3x which isnt enough, so im gonna get it exchanged and i want a 10x or 12x. im also looking for good picture quality so at least 4mp, another function im looking for is a quick delay for the photo (not one you press and takes ages to take) i will be using it for taking tennis shots mostly, so any advice would be great!
ive seen the olympus, kodak, 12x, minolta, panasonic etc but im not sure which is best for the criteria im looking for. i will have roughly 270£ when i get the refund, although i have some money of myn im willing to add.

I don't know what 270 pounds is in dollars, but I love my FZ10. Its burst mode is great for sports and the relatively bright lens is awesome too.

Right.



£270 Uk will now get you the Minolta Z3. It has a very rappid action facility, so you cans start snapping and get 10 decent pictures at 0.1s intervals, so tat you can select which is the shot you want.



12x zoom, excellent movie mode, and the anti-shake actually comes from the A series prosumer models.



Mine should arrive in a couple of days, and I'll post a small run down of it's good and bad points on the forum.



have had canons before, and also seen excellent realism from Fuji.



Fm Z10 is good, but you'll be a good £80 shy of it, and you may need memory etc.. as well.



Failing the Z3, the Z2 isn't half bad, but the Z3 looks to be a definiite contender
