Hey Sorry for delay buddy, here is what i could find...Hope it gives you some pointers on your queries. And yeah i'd prefer the SD Extreme III given it communicates at ~30mb/s.

SCAN DISK 4GB SD CARD (Class-4) - 1700/-
SD EXTREME III CARD 8 GB (Class-6) - 1850/-
Transcend 8 GB SD CARD (Class-6) - 980/-
Transcend 16 GB SD CARD (Class-6) - 3180/-

Source: Computer Warehouse Online - Product Catalogue () - A lot of my friends have bought stuff from this store earlier and trust him more than National Market . Prices are not very different from Gray for sure.

Awaiting a full FZ35 review from you..All the Best!

1) Transend SDHC Class 6
2) ScanDisk SDHC Class 6
3) Kingston SDHC Class 6
4) ScanDisk III Extreme Class 6
Unless you are shooting video at 720p or more and at 30fps or more you dont need a very fast card. In fact the Extreme III, Ultra II, cards you have chosen are all 20Mbps or more way faster than your P&S can write data on them. Any of the cards on your list are more than adequate for your camera. I use cards like this (in fact even slower Class 4 cards will do) to shoot AVCHD video.

after a lot of confusion and dilemma i landed buying up Panasonic TZ11. 8.1 mp 10x zoom.

cameras considered before buying:

1. Fujifilm S1500/S2000hd- both these cameras are best VFM. 10 MP and 15X zoom with hundreds of functions is a lot more camera than you pay for. Price 13250rs with 4gm card, batteries-4nos and tripod.
but after reading reviews on dp,dc and trusted reviews and lot more i found that the image quality isnt quite there.

2. canon 120is - nice image quality, less functions and sluggish performace at a price range of 15000-16000

3. sony h20 - beautiful camera, nice image quality, slow in night mode but overpriced 17800rs

after reading whole lot of reviews, expert opinions, user reviews and what not for 6 long days i learned about panasonic state of art LEICA lens that delivers best in class images.

the TZ11 comes with intelligent auto which sets the scene, modes, iso, apperture and all other settings automatically. the camera performs faster than all the above cameras mentioned. it also has manual 24 scene modes.
with a price tag of 13500rs +4gb card+ original pouch+scratchgaurd its definitely a steal.

the image quality at night is also awesome. no barrel distoration even at 10X zoom. the optical zoom also operates during video recording. overall i am very much satisfied with my new camera.
will post the sample images soon.

here are the sample snaps from my new Panasonic TZ11 camera.

1. intelligent auto- colors are very natural
2. clock with full zoom 10x- details are not lost, just a bit of noise as the shot is taken indoor with low illumination .

3. the news paper in macro mode - fine details with close shoot.

Default SX 20 vx FZ 35 ?

I am toying with the idea of picking up one of the two cameras, FZ35 and the SX20. I am confused which one I should be going for.
The Canon offers a slightly larger zoom and articulating flip out display screen, while the FZ35 is offered at a slightly lower price (around $25 , give or take a few).
Which one would be the better to go for ? Any first hand experiences about the two ?

while FZ35 is reported to have slightly better pic quality, especially in HD video, keep in mind that canon works on AA battery, offers super macro, and continuous shooting till memory fills up. and you may soon have a CHDK for it to do a lot other tweaks.

I would love to get one but already have two digi cameras with me

I'm planning to buy a mega zoom digicam. I have short listed the following. Plz help me choose the right one.
1. Nikon Coolpix L100: http://www.nikon.co.in/productitem.p...307-c67ff5832f
2. Sony H20: DSC-H20 : H Series : Digital Still Camera : Sony India
3. Fujifilm S2000HD: FinePix S2000HD | Fujifilm Global

Fujifilm is the cheapest of the 3 with 15X optical zoom and offers HD video recording too. If anyone has used Fujifilm before, can you plz tell me how's the performance?

In the same boat with the same question.

A big -ve point, for my needs, in case of the Canon is that it's quite a bit heavier than the Panny. Defeats the portability requirement somewhat. Also at Amazon, the Canon is $35 dearer.

The AA compatibility is a big plus.

I had decided on the SX20, and then the almost unanimous views on the better PQ of the FZ in the reviews has swayed me. I guess I'll buy a spare battery with the price differential and go for the FZ. I find the FZ to have better looks too

Btw, what's CHDK?

I am using the S2000HD for the last 2 months. Some pics are posted ahead and in the scale model thread. It is to me the best value of the lot for my amature needs.

aah exactly the same options which i had i had also added canon 120is. after a lot of research, reviews ,personal trials at various shops first we bought S2000HD. its true value for money with so many options and the 15X mega zoom. but if you want great picture quality you will be dismissed.
then when my cousin showed a lot of interest i sold it to him within 2 days.

then i came across the best in class Panasonic TZ11 and TZ15. just type google and search reviews. all impressive reviews. personally did some trials. this is the best camera with 10X zoom with the legendary LEICA lens and a whooping long list of functions with the intelligent auto mode.

at 13500rs TZ11 was the best bet for me. 4gb card with pouch and free scratch guard was the free icing over the cake.

I can't find the cameras you mentioned on the Panasonic India website. Is it discontinued?
Anyways, I have heard a lot about the FZ28/38 camera from Panasonic, which have 18X zoom! Even the review on photographyblog.com rates it as the best superzoom camera. Does anyone know the price for that?

Nice pics of the scale models. How does the camera perform in dark conditions? I'm seriously interested in this Fuji. it's awesome VFM.
