Panasonic Lumix FZ47 / FZ48

Camera Labs
1 September 2011
  • 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. Don't get too excited: it's not a dramatic improvement by any means, but as you'll see in my FZ47 / FZ48 noise results page, there are visible improvements over its predecessor if you look closely.
  • Pros: Great quality 25-600mm 24x zoom., 1080i movies with zooming and effects., Detailed 3in 460k screen., Foolproof Intelligent Auto mode.
  • Cons: No RAW mode. Only now on FZ150., Continuous shooting below spec., No hotshoe for external flash., Shortest lens range of peer-group.

Panasonic Lumix FZ48 review

Pocket Lint

  • Excerpt: The latest Lumix superzoom, the FZ48 or FZ47 if you’re based outside of the UK, adds to the stack of long-zoom compacts that have hit the shelves in recent months.
  • 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

  • Summary: The FZ47 doesn't do anything particularly amazing to warrant its hefty asking price. It takes good photos and video, but, for a little extra cash, we'd highly recommend upgrading to the FZ150 instead.
  • Pros: Intelligent auto, full PASM control, Colours are good, Good video quality, External microphone captures good detail
  • Cons: No external microphone input, hotshoe, progressive HD video recording, Low-resolution screen, Very small electronic viewfinder, Cannot shoot in RAW, CCD sensor results in image degradation

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ47 looks very similar to the more expensive LUMIX FZ150 , albeit missing its flash hot-shoe and with a slightly squarer body. It’s £142 less expensive, too, but still has a reasonably high retail price of £247. If you need a camera with an extreme zoom range, the LUMIX DMC-FZ47 is a good choice: its 24x lens is sharp enough throughout the range to create clear pictures, with only a little resolution lost at maximum zoom.

  • Conclusion: A Panasonic FZ47 é uma superzoom intermediária perfeita para quem gosta de ter controle sobre as fotos, mas não é exigente em relação a definição dos visores ou com fotos em ambientes muito mal iluminados.
  • Pros: Linda. Construção robusta e empunhadura confortável. Grava vídeos em FullHD a 60 fps. Botões de controle ao alcance dos dedos. Captura de imagens enquanto grava. Ajustes finos para gravação de vídeos. Saída mini-HDMI. PictBridge.
  • Cons: Preço alto. Porta de conexão patenteada. LCD e Visor ótico com definição baixa.

  • Excerpt: Le FZ48 est un bridge qui séduira, comme nous avons l'habitude de le dire pour ce type d'appareil, les adeptes d'un tout en un, relativement compact. Car un de ses principaux arguments sera son zoom 24x équivalent 25-600 mm (potentiellement "boostée" même par la fonction Zoom Intelligent qui fonctionne par interpollation fine et qui permet de monter l'amplitude du zoom à x32 - mais ne rêvons pas la qualité d'image décline forcément).
  • Pros: Puissance du zoom, Rapport qualité - prix, une visée électronique absente des compacts
  • Cons: Une qualité optique limité forcément par l'amplitude extrême du zoom

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ48 im Test: gut ausgestattete 24-fach-Superzoom-Kamera

CNET
23 December 2011
  • Summary: Viel Zoom für wenig Geld: Die mit 280 Euro moderat teure Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ48 bietet ein flexibles 24-fach-Objektiv, dessen Brennweitenbereich bei 25 Millimetern im Weitwinkel beginnt. Außerdem an Bord sind eine Full-HD-Videofunktion und alle manuelle Einstellungsmöglichkeiten, die sich anspruchsvolle Fotografen nur wünschen können. Wir haben der Superzoom-Kamera auf den Zahn gefühlt.
  • Pros: gute Ausstattung, durchdachtes Design, schnell
  • Cons: in puncto Features, Geschwindigkeit und Bildqualität der großen Schwester FZ150 deutlich unterlegen

  • Summary: Det er veldig lite man ikke kan gjøre med Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ48. Et lett trykk på zoomknappen, og objektivet beveger seg raskt og presist gjennom det enorme zoomområdet fra 25 mm til 600 mm. Det er enkelt å tree mellominnstillingene, noe som ikke alltid er tilfelle med konkurrentene, og man kan fokusere så tett på at man kan ta gode nærbilder av f.eks. blomster og sommerfugler.
