http://thompsonbrandimages.com/?p=4160 BUYING NEW CAMERAS If buying a new SLR camera, be sure the lens has stabilization. For Canons you’ll see IS, for Nikons VR. .
Panasonic Lumi DMC-ZS40— has viewfinder, aperture and shutter priority settings etc. Also Wi-Fi too. Always get a camera with stablization either in the body or on any lens you buy (for Canon and Nikon)……..very important!
