This is my first post so I hope all is OK. This is a superb spec camera for the best price I have found. The delivery is also free. I hope to be getting one for my pending birthday.
The 6.0-megapixel DMCFZ7 has an Optical Image Stabilizer that compensates hand-shake. It also incorporates a 12x optical zoom (equivalent to 36mm to 432mm on a 35mm film camera) LEICA DC lens.
The FZ7 is compact and easy to carry while preserving the same powerful zoom capability and manual controllability of it's larger bulkier counterparts.
12X image stabilized zoom | 2.5" LCD | 22 Scene and shooting modes | Automatic, semi-automatic & manual control | High speed focus mode | ISO 800 and 1600 options | VGA videos | 16:9 video mode
Looks like they have upped the price a little from my initial post. Maybe the more they sell the more the price goes up.
