Hi all, really new to all this camera tech. I;ve decided my little casio exilim isn't cutting it anymore so want t bigger better camera. I really want it for nice landscapes and sports shooting. I know you are all going to tell me i want an SLR but my pocket can;t stretch to that. Cheapest DSLRs ive seen are around the 400 mark, plus lense.
So my choices aer either the sony dsc h9 or the opanasonic lumix FZ8. The sony seems to be the best with regard to fast shots, however i have read one or two things about the battery being poor. Can anyone back this up? and how poor is poor?
Will i notice a huge difference with the panasonc over the sony for speed. I cna get the sony for 260 pounds or the panasonc for 180 pounds. Its a minefield out there and any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Al

Hi Alistair, welcome to the Cameralabs forums - you can find details about the H9's battery life at the bottom of this page in our review.

We always do the battery life at the bottom of the Design page if you're interested in other models...
