    Default Panasonic DMC-FZ45 vs Panasonic TZ20

    Hi all

    From the research I've done I'm looking at either purchasing a Panasonic DMC-FZ45 or a Panasonic DMC-TZ20.

    My feeling is that despite the heavier weight the FZ45 is better.

    My main priorities are good image quality, particularly with portraits and lower-light settings (I live in a place with poor natural light) and the ability to take crisp, non-jerky video.

    Anyone have any feedback between these two models?
    Or any other suggestions within a similar range to them?

    Thanks

    Hi and welcome

    Both use the same size sensor (1/2.3" - 7.7mm diagonal) so images should be the same - have a look at the side by side comparison (had to use the TZ30 as TZ20 not shown - same size sensor though) http://www.dpreview.com/products/com...asonic_dmcfz40

    Ah, well, these won't suit you as http://www.dpreview.com/learn/?/Glos...r_sizes_01.htm (look at left hand diagram) is about the size of your finger nail and they need all the light they can get! What's your budget? Can you go to a DSLR like the Canon 550D http://www.photographyblog.com/revie...s_550d_review/ with the much bigger sensor?

    I shoot with the TZ7 which has same small sensor - look at my site in my sig. below as to how well it does in good light. Note: I always post process my images...
