The bigger shops like Croma, Vijay sales etc do not have the FZ35; they have almost everything else.

Anyone in Pune who knows some good & reliable shops to buy the Panny FZ35?

I am not keen to buy it on the net; somehow find it risky for products like a camera.
I bought mine from there Digital Cameras Pune,India,Digital Camera,Digital SLR,Canon Powershot,Ixus,Eos,Nikon Coolpix,Sony Cybershot,Panasonic Lumix,Fujifilm Finepix,Kodak Easyshare,Mumbai,Delhi,Chennai,Banglore,Gujarat,In dia (FC Road)

Any reviews from Sony HX1 users? Seems to be very close to Lumix FZ35 and Canon SX20IS.

Default Charging higher mAh batteries

I am having a Sony BCG 34 HUE Ni-MH charger with the following specification.

Input dc16v 4a
Output dc 1.2v x 4
7.5a(AA), 2.85a(AAA)

The charger came with AA type 2500mAh battery. Now that batteries with higher mAh are available will this charger be all right to charge batteries more than 2500 mAh ?

Yes it will work. 2500mAh is the battery capacity. most chargers only provide about 100mA of charging current and some drop to trickle mode (about 10mA) once the battery is full or nearly full.

Query to anyone who owns a Canon Sx 120 IS.

I don't want to spend too much money, but want to get a digicam that can take decent pics so shortlisted this one.

Since it carries twin AA batteries , wanted to know how is the battery life ?
Any inputs on the following will be much appreciated.

1.How many pics will I be able to take with a set of Duracell's
2.How many pics will I be able to take with a set of Rechargeable's (say 2000 Mah)

Do you have any regrets buying this camera ? (I know it does not have a viewfinder just LCD screen, but I can live with that)

Thanks
Fillmore

Hey Friends,

Here is one of the first Panasonic Lumix FZ100 Review. Based on this review, I think I'll pick this over the Fuji HS10 and Panny FZ35. Because to me its looks like a good compromise which gives Similar (or better) features as the HS10 and similar (a lil worse) IQ as in the FZ38.

P.S: Its available for $499 on Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100K 14.1 Megapixel Digital Camera - Black in Point and Shoot Digital Cameras at JR.com

If using non rechargeables use Lithium batteries, they last longer. For rechargeables, get Sanyo Eneloop.
You should get around 400-800 shots depending upon whether flash is used, IS is continuous etc., etc.,

I'd say the FZ38's IQ is quite a bit better. Still given the range of the Z100 it does well.

By the way there is FZ40 also planned. (720P version of FZ100).

That is the specs are exactly the same but the camera recods in 720P than 1080P. PLUS a whopping $100 lower in price.
If you already have good HD camcorder, then this makes a very good deal.

Yeah, what you said about the FZ40 is true, about the 'good deal'. But I wouldn't call it a '720p Version' of the FZ100 because they have completely different lenses. The FZ100 is a CMOS (hence high speed bursts and slow video recording are part of its feature-set) and the FZ40 is a CCD (similar to FZ38). Hence other than bumping the zoom from 18x to 24x, I didn't think that FZ40 has a lot to offer.

Hey, then something is wrong in my understanding. When I look at the Panasonic website, and compare FZ40 va FZ100, every things seems to be the including the LENS system. I am not into photography. So may not know much details. But over the top when comparing the two, it looked exactly same!
Here attached is a snapshot.

Hey Amp, Sorry to confuse you mate. What is meant was they (FZ40 and FZ100) may look similar in specs of their Lens but the lenses are actually functionally completely different. I donno if i make snese, but here are a few links if you wanna read-up. I hope some of the experts from our forum can help me explain this to you .

CCD and CMOS sensors | DigicamGuides.com

The Sensor difference means that we get features like 11fps Burst mode, Slow-Motion Video Recording, Faster shutter response (as per panny website) etc. Also there is a Free-Angle (270degree tilting) LCD in the FZ100, while the FZ40 has a fixed one.

Guys

Facing issue with FZ35
When the still images are taken and then enlarged to 100%, there is lots of noise. This is same with any pic i am clicking no matter full daylight or what.
The video is good.. No issues at all.

Is it time to get it checked.

PS: Have tried each and every setting. To rule out handshake, even have used the tripod.
