  • Summary: Clearly, this versatile feature set is great to have and the Lumix FZ47 has a reasonable amount of external controls to use these efficiently. The true downside of this digital camera is sub-par image quality which limits the usable ISO range to a maxium of 400.
  • Pros: Good exposure accuracy, Above average Automatic WB, Low optical distortion, Generally responsive, Fast autofocus speed, Quick shutter lag, Awesome LCD visibility, Quite good usability
  • Cons: Noise reduction softness at all ISO, Almost pointless ISO 800 & 1600, Poor color accuracy, Poor focus in low-light, Not, Tiny EVF, Low battery-life, Play button too flush

  • Excerpt: The Lumix DMC-FZ47 ($399) is Panasonic's "standard" super zoom camera, sitting just below the newly introduced FZ150. This camera, the replacement of the DMC-FZ40, features a 24X optical zoom lens (equivalent to 25 - 600 mm), manual and automatic controls, Full HD video recording, and much more.

  • Summary: Panasonic explains the drop in resolution is in order to support 1080i video and quicker continuous shooting, but it also allows the camera to enjoy slightly lower noise levels at higher sensitivities.

  • Cons: No RAW mode. Only now on FZ150., Continuous shooting below spec., No hotshoe for external flash., Shortest lens range of peer-group.

  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ48 is very hard to beat. It is up against some stiff competition, but the combination of features, image quality and pricing makes it the outstanding model in its category.

Panasonic’s super-zoom bridge camera is big, but versatile

Good Gear Guide.au
26 December 2011
  • Summary: The Panasonic LUMIX FZ47 is the little brother of the top-of-the-line FZ150, and it sacrifices a range of features like the FZ150’s Live MOS sensor and accessory hot-shoe to cut the price slightly.
  • Pros: Comfortable and easy to use, Good lens range and quality, Good video quality
  • Cons: Small viewfinder and low-resolution LCD, High recommended retail price, No RAW image capture

Pocket Lint
20 December 2011
  • Conclusion: The FZ48 has its positives: we’re fond of the fast autofocus system that, at the wide-angle settings at least, will see off much of the competition. But it’s not all rosy: the 24x optical zoom, while more than sufficient for most users, doesn’t have the sort of reach that the Fuji HS20 or Canon SX30...
  • Pros: Fast autofocus, improved LCD screen, close-up macro
  • Cons: No Raw, 24x zoom isn’t as big as much of the competition, images lack quality detail
