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

Good Gear Guide.au
16 February 2012
  • Conclusion: 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

Panasonic Lumix FZ48

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

  • Summary: At first glance the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ48 looks like a carbon copy of last year's FZ45 model, but underneath the hood there are some significant changes, most notably full 1080p movies, much faster burst shooting, higher-resolution screen and even snappier auto-focusing.

  • 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...
  • 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
