I've decided to ditch my Canon SD450 and go for a nicer Ultra Zoom camera. I'm basically looking at the two and wondering if you guys could help me out. Canon S3 IS: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canons3is/ Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8: http://www.dpreview.com/news/0701/07013106panasonicfz8.asp The majority of my shots are indoor/occassionally outdoor of my daughter, but I'll go to events such as ALMS (American Le Mans) this past weekend, which actually prompted some change for a better camera. In addition, vacations, such as Yellowstone as well as cars (specifically my own) and the such will be common places I'd take pictures. I've read the reviews and the two seem very similar. I believe both can be had new for about $270 shipped, which seems like a great price. Are they are accessories that you would deem "must haves." I have a 1GB SD and 512MBSD and that's about it. Good bag, good tri/mono pod, etc? Good batteries? Help me out.
