This would be a gift for the girlfriend and I've been looking at two choices at this point. The Canon SX120IS or the Panasonic DMC-ZS3. At this point it would be to carry every where and not so sure manual modes would be needed but of course would also be nice to have. Does anyone have either of these cameras and how do you like them thus far? I know the Canon has manual features and the Panasonic doesn't and battery life on some reviews is up in the air for both. I seem to be use to having Raw as my format of choice and both have jpeg so no real one up over the other. I must say that the wide angle on the Panasonic is making me lean that way but all my P&S have been Canon's and I've had great photo's from them. No real world experience with the Panasonic so I'm leaving it to those that have used them before. Thanks for any and all input and or any photo's that show the quality of either model would be great!
