Indoor Sports Photos with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30

by ariel 1 / October 24, 2005 1:27 AM PDT

Does anyone have any photos taken indoors of sporting events, like hockey, taken with the FZ30? Would anyone reccomend this camera for such photos. I would like to find a camera that would be suitable for taking photos from the stands so the 12x zoom is a must. I also would like a camera that is affordable and of good quality.
Any advice would be appreciated.

I have also read reviews that it is not that big of an issue. I would really like to see some photos indoors sporting events.

Not sure what the difference is between this camera and the DMC-FZ20, but I could send pics of what I have managed to take with mine(FZ20). It really depends on the lighting of the event...

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
