              I was caught between choosing Canon Powershot SX40HS and Panasonic Lumix FZ150. I finally landed on Panasonic. I am very happy that I made a good choice. I have never regretted. Great movies, great pictures, easy to use. My problem how to use 3-D and the Raw and under what condition? Can someone assist.
              Thanks to Panasonic. I will wish to have the canon in the very near future.
