Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 Video
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40 is a solid megazoom, but its low-light photos need extra attention.
Hobbyists and enthusiasts who want a megazoom camera with a lot of control over final results should strongly consider the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150.
As long as you're willing to work with raw image files, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 is one of the best full-size megazooms you can get.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ47's is a very good megazoom for the money, but if you want more control over results--especially in low light--you'll want to step up to the Lumix FZ150.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30K is an 8-megapixel, point-and-shoot camera. Compared to other point-and-shoot digital cameras on the market, it is expensive at around $565. Includes ArcSoft PhotoImpression, ArcSoft Panorama Maker, LUMIX simple viewer, ArcSof
Despite its shortcomings, notably its weak JPEG processing, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 delivers an excellent all-around shooting experience--fastest in its class, full featured, and capable of shooting some very nice photos.
Though we still really like Panasonic's GF series, there are several trade-offs to take into account before you buy the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2. Its raw-format images look extremely good, but JPEG shooters looking for best-possible photo quality may get frustrated by image artifacts. And while lots of photographers will appreciate its relatively compact but functional design and zippy performance--though still not for action shooting--there's nothing special about its feature set, including underpowered video capture.
With a wide-angle, megazoom lens, a quick AF system, and generally high-quality snapshot photos, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZR1 is a standout compact megazoom.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS10 is a very good compact megazoom as long as you don't mind paying more for features and speedy performance than photo quality.
After spending a few quality hours with the camera, we think it should deliver better image quality and performance than its predecessor, and we welcome the updates to the design.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 Review
The good: Useful 27mm wide-angle zoom; excellent image stabilization; full selection of manual and automatic exposure controls; very good 720p movie capture with operational zoom and manual controls; relatively fast.
The bad: Noise and compression artifacts in JPEG photos; no hotshoe.
The bottom line: A better-than-average megazoom choice, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 delivers standout video capabilities and an excellent manual feature set. Still, it suffers from a lot of the same drawbacks as its competitors, including weak photo quality.
