You're right; it's a Panasonic FZ-150. I wanted something with much longer reach in an all-in-one package. I think it's probably good enough for my purposes.something with a zoom with a pretty wide range. not fantastically sharp at the edge of the frame. i'd guess a superzoom of some type
I am very much an opportunistic shooter. One of the other members here put to succinctly: take a camera everywhere and see what happens.Love the doggy! I think for versatility that the super zooms are fantastic. I have the Canon SX40. They are great at what they do and if your not a mad fanatical image has to be perfect person they are great little cameras.
