Which one, Canon s11s or panny fz3

just about to order the panny but seen the canon for £25 extra
similar specs but the canon uses aa batterys which is a + point!!
Anybody own the canon please share your thoughts
cheers all


I owned the S1, great camera takes fantastic movei clips (if thats important to you) great in low light. Only weaknees is that it does not have an af lamp so focusing indoors can be a pain. The AA's were a god send, the flip view screen is great. Shame its only 3.mp, but it took great photos.

Not had the panny, i think i'd go for the Z20 over the Z3

Think i'd get the FZ3 at £199 and put the money you save towards an extra battery. Great piece of kit at a silly price.

More features than the Canon and pic quality probably on a par if not slightly better. The Leica glass on the Panny is superb.
