How does the Panasonic TZ5 fare against the Fuji F100FD?
I am not sure why I never came across the panasonic before, especially with it's 10x optical zoom which is very impressive! But how does it compare to the Fuji on other aspects such as noise, fast moving objects, low light performance etc?..

First of all you didn't mention which Fuji. Fuji has high ISO performance a little better than any other compact with some cameras (like S6500, F31, F20). Panasonic is known as a company with very noisy cameras so TZ5 is not an exception.VictorBucuresti, Romaniahttp://s106.photobucket.com/albums/m268/victor_petcu/http://picasaweb.google.com/teodor.nitica/..

I did it's in the subject, F100FD!.

The 10x optical zoom is very appealing on the panasonic, but at the same time I really want something that performs well in low light..

Overall how would you weigh up the two camera's side by side?.

Put it this way, at the moment I shoot with a Samsung digimax S800! On either of the two camera's listed above I am going to notice a considerable improvement right?..

Super CCD has some advantages and some disadvantages..

The low light high ISO performance is not very good with any small sensor camera. The high ISO performance needs large photosites.Here is an example of the ISO1600 of a dSLR in low light:.

And here is of ISO800 of a Fuji (that has lower pixel counts than F100) for full size go to http://picasaweb.google.com/...or.nitica/CaruCuBere/photo#5094226568447934290 and download it..

Between the two of them (Fuji F100 and Panny TZ5) better high ISO performance will have Fuji. I don't know how effective is the image stabilization of Fuji while the one of Panasonic is very good (up to 8 times slower speeds or three stops).VictorBucuresti, Romaniahttp://s106.photobucket.com/albums/m268/victor_petcu/http://picasaweb.google.com/teodor.nitica/..

Ok here are some further examples of photo's I took with my Samsung Digimax S800:.

So basically my question is neither the TZ5 or the F100 are going to do a worse job than the above are they? So with that in mind which is the better of the two?.

As long as the camera can produce the same quality low light shors as my above S800 shots then the other important aspects are daytime performance, zoom, spped etc...

I would not dare taking a picture with Panasonic at ISO400 and compare with Samsung because they are worse.For this purpose Fuji will do a better job.VictorBucuresti, Romaniahttp://s106.photobucket.com/albums/m268/victor_petcu/http://picasaweb.google.com/teodor.nitica/..

Really? The panasonic would come out worse than my pics above?Looks like Fuji it is then even though it's less optical zoom .

Will fuji pics come out better than my Samsung ones? I am now starting to debate giving up my Samsung, although with the Samsung I always have to use flash to get pics like that...

I would scan both the Panasonic and Fuji forums and take a long look at the pictures posted there. I've seen high ISO examples in each forum that might help you with your decision..

The standard line is that Panasonic sensors are noisy, and their NR is excessive. The other standard line is that Fuji cameras are subject to high levels of PF, and CA in general. There is truth in both..

I own cameras from both brands, though neither specific one you mentioned, and like both..

The OIS in the Panny TZ series is superb.It will take great indoor concert shots on auto without resorting to a high ISO.I have had some excellent results with my TZ4the 10x zoom is a real plus.Unfortunately I cant post the results as I dont use online storage but check the Panny forum there must be loads of examples.I have had the TZ4 as my P&S for just about two months now and have never found noise to be a problem.Worryingly I seem to be using it more than my DSLRit is a really versatile competent little camera.PJT..

I'm still none the closer to deciding on a camera, it's so frustrating!..
