Default Re: Any advice for my first camera?

Hello Chantelle,
I love my Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ5 - It is now over 3 Years old and now there are newer models of this FZ range available with improved features ( newest is FZ28, I think ). It is a 'bridge' camera between the compact and the DSLR. Excellent Leica lens. 12XOptical Zoom ( 18x on newest models) No separate lenses to carry, and lightweight - which I find a great advantage whilst travelling and walking in hotter climates. Most of the most useful features of DSLR's. Have a look at reviews. Nearly all the shots on my gallery have been taken with this camera. Like you, I found it difficult to choose a camera out of the hundreds available, but I have never regretted buying the Lumix.
Good luck with whichever camera you choose.....Maggie
