I've had really good luck with Panasonic cameras, but a 16.1 megapixel compact super zoom camera? This thing has a have a microscopic sensor in it. Sounds like the megapixel war is getting a little ridiculous.
I haven't jumped on the DSLR craze, but to me there seems to be a limit in terms of quality you can get out of these compact cameras.
We had a Panasonic Lumix something about 5-6 years ago that was a 5.1MP 6x optical zoom camera. It wasn't a compact camera, but it wasn't a large camera by any means. That thing took great pictures. It broke due to age, etc.
We bought a Panasonic Lumix ZR-1 or ZS-1, I can't remember. It's 10 or 12MP with 8-10x optical zoom. It takes horrible pictures indoors compared to our old camera.
All manufacturers are doing it, but once you squeeze these tiny tiny sensors into tiny cameras, the result isn't very good for the most part.
To be honest, I've seen smartphone pictures that look just as good, if not better than some of the pictures that are coming out of compact superzoom cameras.
He's right, the more pixels you pack into the sensor, the noisier the pictures get. If you want good clean pictures, you're better off staying around 10mp. If you want a huge jump in image quality, you have to make the jump to D-SLR for a larger APS Class C or full frame sensor. Makes a huge difference.
