thanks. i need to look up the image stabilization on the FZ80.

It works really good, IMHO.

This FZ80 shot I took came in 5th place in DPReview challenge:

1/20th at 1200mm , handheld. Subject is indoors and behind glass

for some reason i was lead to believe it had none, which didn't make a bit of sense to me as almost all of even the cheapest point and shoots have that basic feature.

i figured this forum may know.

the nikon p950 is an excellent bridge camera, probably much better than canon's sx50 or sx70 for that matter; of course always at the double or triple price.

I thinks it a great superzoom. Amazing details at 2000mm.

Amazing VR. Can handhold at 1/80th at 2000mm.

some things are better with the FZ80.

thanks, i looked up your review and note that you have used the sx50 also.  do the two cameras compare?  it seems that you would favor the fz80.

yesterday, i called up my fave camera dealer and they are short of everything, no bridge cameras at all.  he suggested the nikon 950/900.
