    hi i have just returned my Sony DSC-HX200V, because of the noise and grainy pictures, i have been looking at the:

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150EB-K


    Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR


    Canon PowerShot SX40 HS

    I have already half decided i dont like the Canon because of the viewfinder and the screen blackout during continuous shot mode, can someone please who owns any of these cameras give me their honest opinion before i commit to buy, my primary objective is to take pictures of birds...

    thanks to all

    The Fuji X-S1 then Smile

    I don`t own this camera, just the X10 and this shares the same sensor.

    I'd recommend the Fuji X-S1 as well. My son bought one as his first, proper camera, a few months ago & I have been really surprised at the quality of the images he has produced with it. He is on here and his user name is pooks616.

    Which ever you choose, suggest its one with a hot shoe, otherwise very limiting.

    Do they have a remote release socket?
    I'm thinking of getting a Bridge or Compact, but I would prefer one with a remote facility.
    The spec sheets and reviews aren't very informative on that score.

    Have you read the EPZ review

    http://www.ephotozine.com/article/fujifilm-x-s1-bridge-camera-review-18445

    Not sure but I strongly believe this camera is weather sealed(dust and slash proof)

    I'm getting the nikon P510 in a couple of weeks, all the reviews i've read are good and it has the best optical zoom at 42. Its a massive luxury for me and only able to have it as sister is staying with me for a while Grin

    It's a shame that it doesn't produce RAW files, only jpeg.
