We compared this camera to all the other digital cameras with an image stabiliser and we think the Pixpro FZ43[pl_3744606_price], or the Pixpro FZ42[pl_3745486_price] both from Kodak or the Samsung MV800[plb_3153818_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Released Eleven Months Ago
