I like it heaps. Just wish the CCD was larger, as I am conscious of the noise. I guess I wish I had DSLR, but then I would want to be upgrading on lenses etc, At least it has manual controls.

Nice! Thought for a sec it was a DSLR!

One thing I liked about the Kodak was I could take pics on the go (biking) the FZ8 is bulkier, so I have to carry it in my backpack

I can't take pics like these with the FZ8

Yea, I guess it would be perfect to have 2 cameras, one with large zoom, the other compact. Oh well I guess just like bikes you have to sacrifice one function to get another lol. What I like about that fuji film is that it has adjustable zoom and focus and has alot more manual functions compared to what i have at the moment. It also has 9 MP so photos will look better on vorb :D

This is a 15cm long caterpillar. I had no idea their colours were so awesome until I saw this one, had to take a photo.

A bit too much glare off the shed, but still a cool shot, I reckon.
