Phil, Norm,

yes, I was going to say the same.

Doesn't one of the following cameras also have a swiveling LCD
viewfinder? I don't know offhand.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ3
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ15
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20

In the lens, not moving the sensor:

David,

thanks and thanks for the link. Just read it.

Very interesting camera, at 8 Megapixels and $1,000 it is above
the class of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20, not to mention the 2
and 3 Megapixel cameras, which are, however, a lot cheaper and
also a lot smaller.

Yes, it makes the decision process for an IS camera a little complicated:

- Canon S1 IS - 3MP, AA batteries, CF
- Panasonic - f/2.8 lens, proprietary batteries SD card
- Nikon 8800 - 8MP but f/5.2 lens at max telephoto

Cheers,
David
