    I just got a new canon G11 for Christmas from my girlfriend. A lot more to learn on this one then my old SD1000. I'll post some pics once I get more figured out on it.

    well steven, the ONLY advantage of a SLR/DSLR over this Canon sx20is is the Raw mode. This camera has significantly more user options, DVD quality Video mode, and over 350 different color setting combinations. Not to mention the 23 shooting style in the SCN catagoy, including super macro in Aquarium Setting. I can use all the same manual lens available that any other Canon SLR/DSLR can use, as well as most of the hotshoe and remote flash assemblies. (and I like the telephoto with a 15.4MP shooting option for wide angle mile away shots.)...merry christmas

    the DLSR and SLR are advanced in the RAW setting which allows the blackout for backgrounds allowing it to focus on the item your shooting. My SX20is has that option as well, its simply called "Under Exposure".

    Being I never made it to Costco to get that while it was on sale...Which ones better today and what's the difference??????

    vs.

    <a class="postlink" href="http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-DMC-FZ3" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;">http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-DMC-FZ3</a> ... =1-2-fkmr0 (Panasonic Lumix DMC-F235)
    -----------------
    from the few reviews I could find they claim the picture qualitys better on the panasonic, it's lighter, has recharg. battery compared to canon's double aa's, and a brighter aperature.

    Canon is heavier, has 20x zoom compared to panasonic's 18x, has a flip out lcd, and a hot shoe for external flash.

    Mind you I'm a point & shoot kinda girl, but want amazing photo quality at the same time and currently use an outdated Kodak M883 for pet & vacation photos. Soo confused on which would be the "better" camera.

    well it looks like I can get:
    *New Canon Sx20 is for $324.95 shipped
    *New Canon 32gb sdhc Class A (Dane-elec) memory card for $89.99 shipped, but I'll probably skip this for now since I have a 32gb SDHC Toshiba one...and does the class rating on the memory card make any difference or the brand for that matter??
    *New Canon CBK4-300 (4aa recharge batteries and actual charger) $26.78 shipped
    -->seen an energizer brand one for a bit more that says it charges in 15minutes..wonder if that's really true, or if it will crap out on me after a few charges
    *New Canon PSC-4000 (soft case...couldn't seem to find a "hard" one?) for $17.95 shipped

    Thinking this is probably the best deal I'll find on the items I'm looking for
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Other 2 cameras considered were the Kodak Z981 (14.0mp, 26x5 zoom, 720p hd, AA battery-said to run through them--2h with screen out) which I coulda got for $229.84 through Amazon, and the Olympus Sp-800 (14.0mp, 30x5 zoom, 720p hd, lithium battery, no view finder, no b&W) which I coulda got for $264.00 through TriStateCamera

    By Chance would anyone know the best/highest SDHC Card that would be compatible with the Canon 20sx is?
    (wondering if any brand would work and can you use a class 6 or higher?)

    I haven't used any "off" brands that label theirs as class 6+. I use a SanDisk Ultra II in my Nikon P90 and a SanDisk Extreme III in my DSLR. The Ultra II is 15MBps which should be fast enough for that camera as well.

    A-Data Turbo 6 $99.89
    Transcend 6 $104.78
    Dane-Elec Proline 6 $149.95 (brand shown in smaller gb on the canon website for the sx20is).
