Default Good Photos / Super-Zoom Advice??

Should I look for an SLR or a "super-zoom"?? I don't think that I'll need to
swap lenses (don't have any to swap at the moment!!) and probably won't take
photography to that level within the near future.


By "super zoom" you probably mean ZLR. You don't need an SLR if you
are not sure which to get. Get the Olympus Camedia C-8080. It is the
best reviewed of the current ZLR type cameras. You will not need to
waste a fortune on extra lenses like you would with an SLR. The camera
is built solid like a truck but reasonably light compared to a DSLR.
Good luck with your purchase.

The Panasonic FZ20 offers a 12X image stabilized optical zoom that's =
