Can somebody please tell me what the most significant differences are between the FZ45 & the FZ100 that would justify the price difference between these two cameras?????????? :? :? :? :? :?

The main four differences are:
1. The FZ100 with a MOS sensor (CMOS) is basically designed for superior Video performance.
2. Has the capability (shoe) to fit an external flash.
3.The ability for faster continuous shooting.
4. Swivel LCD display.
Considering the high price of the FZ100 I think that for many people the
FZ45 will be more than adequate though.

I think I might still go with the fz100 though, mainly because I think good video quality is good to have & secondly ouside of the fact the tiltable screen could be good in certain situations I have scratched so many screens in the past when carrying my camera at least now I know the screen will be safe if I can turn it in on the camera when travelling. :D :D :D

On my FZ38/35 I only use the EVF, so have a plastic protector over the LCD
and have it permanently switched off. I find using the EVF far better and
more effective. It also allows for steady filming as it is pressed firmly
against my face. Both the FZ100 and FZ45 are HD video cameras. Just that
the FZ100 is at 1080i and the FZ45 is at 720p.
The FZ100 MOS sensor is going to provide a superior reaction to a direct
light source though, something that CCD sensors always battle with.

For that expensive price you also can buy a dSLR with video.
Far better IQ than a compact.

Hi Ruben I appreciate that you can get a good dslr for a similar price but the reason I would like to go with a good bridge camera is I dont want to go down the road of carrying around cameras with changeable lenses. I did start of looking at dslrs but have decided to opt for the smaller camera. Thanks for the input though.

"For that expensive price you also can buy a dSLR with video".

But that will be without the reach of the 24x zoom of the FZ100.
A DSLR with decent glass is going to cost far more.

You can use the quote botton :lol:

Yes, youre right. But for such an expensive price of a compact camera, you should buy a dSLR IMHO.
