idk how you are getting tired of that camera unless you have reached its manual mode limits.
No kidding. If you're tired of that one, you're going to have to go big (read: DSLR) if you want to upgrade - and then you lose any size advantage and will have to revert back to your old point and shoot when you don't want to lug equipment around.
It'* got image stabilization and a hot shoe for flash 'fer cryin out loud!
Grimm, that'* a really sweet picture considering the shutter speed and the fact that you were using the flash.
I'm going to have to try that sometime...
Thanks. I'm new to all the manual stuff, so that was when I was messing around one night. I don't remember why I had the shutter speed that slow, but it came out good I thought for a newb. I almost got an S3 myself, but I just couldn't pass up the $100 savings of the FZ7, and from what I've taken the noise isn't going to be an issue to me.
