Here's where you find the best of the best, our top digital cameras across the board.
Though it stands out as one of the least expensive digital cameras to sport optical image stabilization, the LS80's performance and pictures simply don't hold up against competing budget cameras.
Simple and satisfying, Panasonic's Lumix DMC-FH27 is an excellent point-and-shoot value.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 is a fine compact megazoom, if not the best value.
The Lumix DMC-FP8 lives up to Panasonic's speedy performance claims; its photo quality isn't bad, either.
A fast, long 12x optical zoom lens and easy-to-use controls help make up a little for the DMC-FZ8's image-quality issues.
Featuring a large 1-inch sensor and 16x zoom lens (the longest in its class), this compact might be all the camera you need.
One more reason to close your curtains, the 16-megapixel FZ70 features an f2.8-5.9 20-1200mm lens and rock-solid image stabilization to back it up.
If you're searching for a long-zoom camera that falls in between a point-and-shoot and digital SLR experience, look no further than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ47 is a very good megazoom for the money, but if you want more control over results--especially in low light--you'll want to step up to the Lumix FZ150.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF3 offers the type of performance and photo quality in a relatively small design many point-and-shoot graduates will like.
