Hi,

I've been researching for weeks and have gonefrom powershoots to SLR's back to powershoots or super zooms whichever you call them.

I want a camera I can take quality pictures I can enlarge to 12 X 16 / 13 X 19 etc. to hang on wall.

Any wisdom would be very much appreciated. I need a simple camera I'm not experienced with cameras other than a point and shoot. My last camera was an Olympus C-720 which is destroyed.

Thanks, K.P.

there is relatively little difference between the sony h1 and the canon s2is.. choose between these two based upon your preference in style..

the fz-30 offers more resolution than the competiors at 8mp vs 5mp, but noise is a bit more inherent at the higher ISO's because of less incamera noise reduction. while this is not as big of an issue if you know how to post-process, straight out the camera, you may not be as happy with the results..

you may consider waiting for panasonic's fz-7 as well.. looks to have a good feature set and a nice 6mp sensor..
