hi,
i'm new to this forum business, so please forgive me if i get it wrong (not sure if i'm typing in the correct place even)! anyway, here goes!!

after dropping my canon digital ixus i think i probably need a new camera. i've been doing a bit of research online & have been drawn to the panasonic lumix tz7 (priced at 179.99 gb pounds at a popular online store, not sure if i'm allowed to name them, so i'd better not risk it). however, yesterday i spotted the casio exilim fh20 on the same site for a similar price & after digging around a little i thought i liked the sound of it too.

I signed up with this forum yesterday as i needed a little help & advice so that i might choose the right camera. however, i couldn't ask my question until today as i had to be verified, apparently. anyway, here i am & i've been back to the website i found that the casio's price has gone back up by about a hundred pounds. great...

still, i'd like to know what anyone thinks of these 2 cameras - pros & cons. i'd be very grateful for any advice given. thanks

edit...
i've just come across the fuji finepix F200EXR for 119 gbpounds (sorry, but the pound symbol won't work on my laptop!). this looks pretty good.
anyone have any knowledge about this camera?

the price of the casio (above) has just dropped back down again today! such is the nature of this particular online store!!

i really would appreciate any comments about any of these cameras.


thanks for taking the time to read my post.

Someone thought that a good brand of digital cameras, their quality is very good also.I din't agree with this point.
I have a digital camera, because the panasonic outing, so bought another battery back-up back. This brand is good panasonic? Do you know? I use a period of time, it is the quality problems.

It can use the time is not longer.

Unfortunately I am not familiar with the two cameras that you mention, however there is a web site that allows you to compare almost any two cameras; its primarily a technical comparison. Here is the link, I hope it helps you make the right decision.

HI i currently own the Panasonic TZ7 and find it a great camera,

Pros - zoom range - image quality - ease of use - loads of options

Cons - no control over aperture or shutter speed

But if the cons dont bother you or are not interested in this then its a great camera as most 90 percent of the time it gets the results that i want

unfortunatly i cant say anything about the fujifilm as i have never used one.

For a quick look at a few pics taken with a Tz7 check out my gallery - search for user name scoobert

thanks for your helpful reply scoobert.

i've had a look at your photos & i am impressed with their quality. they look crisp, clear and the colours seem natural. the one of your beautiful dobermann is especially striking - one could almost reach out & touch her glossy coat!

can i just ask how sturdy the camera seems to you, especially the usually fiddly bits such as battery, card & connector cable covers?

thanks again

What are your priorities in terms of features set.
I.e. zoom reach, manual controls, video capabilities?

Based on the cameras you mentioned in the OP though, I think the TZ7 would definitely be a good choice. Its an excellent all-rounder, and compact to boot.

The TZ7 is indeed an excellent solution for most needs at a relatively low price.
It has a good automatic mode if you never want to deal with manual controls.

Another good, inexpensive option (now that you mentioned the F200EXR) is the F80EXR.
It has a good zoom range (almost like the TZ7), good quality images, and a lower price (about 155 if I'm not mistaken).
Where did you see the F200 for 119? I could only find it selling for 199.

I think Nikon 2550 is the best than any other camera.

I always like SONY cameras as already have great experiences with them. These days one new camera SONY NEX-5N is in the market and really have many ultimate features to make your captured moments amazing.
