    Looking for you camera buffs to tell me which of these is the best option for outdoor hunting photos and for posting pics on here. It seeems Canon has the best reputation but the Panasonic gets great reviews from those in the know. The Leica lense helps as well. Post up if you have tried either or are a camera buff. Thanks

    I have no experience with that Canon model but I had(lost in divorce) the Panasonic w Leica lens and could not have been happier. It is easy to use and the pics are great.

    RE: best option for outdoor hunting photos

    Not familiar with either camera, but....

    Both camera only offer 3.8X Optical Zoom.

    If your looking for hunting closeups, you may want to look at cameras that offer at least 10x zoom.

    As for posting on this site, any modern camera will do. Unless posting a photo for someone to download and print, a 72 dpi posting is all that is needed for viewing.

    The Canon is an great camera (personal experience). The Nikon P300 is just as good, BUT with a faster lens. Worth looking into. John

    I have the older Canon S90 and have been very pleased with it, very pocketable and produces great results whether using the full auto or the traditional aperture or shutter priority modes. You really cannot go wrong with either model.
