I am about to buy a cam, and I have narrowed down my choice between the three:
Sony w320 selling for £109
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX60 for £119.99
Panasonic Lumix FS30 for £130.80

I should probably post each as a seperate deal as well but before that I need some help on deciding.

I am willing to push till £150 but would rather not.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

you can get a Lumix TZ7 for your top end, and its a far better camera

Thanks Shanecr.

Left me even more confused. It's for the OH so will have to check with her whether she likes the form factor and doesn't mind a refurb.

What if you had to choose between the three above?

The problem I face is that am not sure whether each one is worth the extra money on top of the previous model. (Besides know how good each one is.)
The Sony should come to around £100 with Quidco. So would the Panasonice FS30 be worth £30 more? Partly subjective, but while the sony has a CZ lens the FS30 does sport a Leica lens, which the FX60 does.

All rather confusing.

well, what i can say, is the TZ7 is considered the best camera in its class, which is cameras of 150-250, and the TZ7 was a £200 camera. It will easily provide a better photo than any of those other 3. If it has to be one of those, id go for the FS30.
I bought myself the FZ38 which is a superzoom version of the TZ7,and they take very similar photos.
You can see some of my better shots,just click the photo http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4076/4803192482_9488f4d630_z.jpg


Its a tough call, but if you dont need HD video recording, seach for the TZ6 which is a slightly earlier model. But still takes a good photo.

I love that picture.

Found the TZ6 at CEX for £140. So its either that or FS30.

I just don't like the thought of 'spending a little bit more gives me something better'. It never stops otherwise.

You mean someone wanted to sell one and u bought it off them?
Confusing site. Do they have an online shop or something?

Or do you mean their classified ads?

Is there any point in considering the fuji F70EXR and the F200EXR?

the classified ads. There is usually quite a bit of choice. The fuji's are ok i think, but when i researched for my camera, the Panasonics always came out on top

Thanks a lot shanecr. Much appreciated.
OH decided to go with the 'smaller' form factor. Also just saw the Sony w380 refurb for £114 instead of £170 so might go for that one.
Now between the Sony W380 and Panasonic FS30.
