So what do you think of these 2 choices? Or do you know of something comparable that is better? It all boggles my mind after awhile:? I'm somewhat new to digital photography. I bought a Sony cybershot in November and I know I hate it:evil:

If you are looking for a longer zoom, then please give some consideration the the Panasonic FZ series. They have received top notch reviews and are excellent digital cameras.

You could hate any camera, what is it you don't like about the Sony??

I have the FZ20 myself and would recommend it to anyone. However, it does take some getting use to..

I guess the 3x zoom was a disappointment. So then I went and spent a fortune on accessory lenses. Can't choose to take a picture without flash because you get the hand shake symbol. For some reason there is a spot on pictures that shows up on a solid background. It is not something on the lense - I have cleaned it.

Well I ordered an fz20 today

If you can't afford a NIKON get the KODAK

Add-on lenses are next to useless for some of these cameras. I see no point in spending 25% of the cost of a camera on these add-on lenses (which, incidentally, aren't very good in the first place).

As far as handshake is concerned, you'll get that with any camera...

In cany case, the Panasonic FZ20 is the best ultra-zoom IMO and if that doesn't satisfy you, no other ultra-zoom will (your best bet after that is a low-zoom prosumer like Canon G6, and if that fails then a high-end prosumer like Olympus 8080...of course, you would be broke by then but that's another story )

Ive heard some pretty good stuff about the panasonic, very little worth reading about with the kodak. Perhaps you could try the panasonic forums and get some feedback there.
