Antartic Trip: what superzoom?
Aug 25, 2009

My dads got himself on a voyage to Antartica in Feb and has asked me to organise a cam for him.

At this stage the FZ35 looks likely - he is not a slr or dslr user and his current cam is a FS30 (or is it fx30) anyway it was his purchase of that little Panny that got me interested in Panasonic cams 18months ago and I am thankful for that.
He does have a new video cam already but wants some nice stills.
He is spending one night on the ice but rest onboard.

Canon are releasing their sx20 and sx120is - is there much difference between 18x and 20x zoom? I'll also check the short end as wide angle is important to him.

Any suggestions or thoughts are welcome.
Cheers Brett
