Last week I upgraded my point-and-shoot 1.2 megapixel Epson PhotoPC 750Z to a 10 megapixel Panasonic DMC-ZS1. Both cameras
have auto focus, optical zoom and macro. There are several differences: the Epson camera is 10 years old and cost $500 new and a
48 meg memory card cost $100.
My new Panasonic was under $200 and a 8 gigabyte memory card costs less than $20. I think both cameras take great closeups but
the Epson has to be used in telephoto and macro mode. The picture below was taken with with the Panosonic and no flash, no
telephoto zoom and no macro. The camera has a 7 element wide angle Leica lens and has more processing power and features than
I will ever use. In the world of cameras today it's considered a basic camera. I am very happy with it. The picture file size shown below
is below is 3648 x 2736 pixels and compressed by the camera to 4,765 KB in a JPEG format. I have placed line breaks in the text to
force it to wrap within the width of the photo, otherwise you would possibly
have to pan your screen to see all of the text. (Maybe some will have to do that anyway.)
