Summary: The first FZ48 shipment is retailing for around £320 in a number of online stores, positioning the model at a similar or more affordable level to much of the competition. The Nikon P500 and Fuji HS20 are both available for a similar sum, while the Canon SX30 IS and Sony HX100V are available somewhere inside the £350-400 range. The Lumix FZ48’s fast autofocus is its premier feature, capable of attaining focus in little time.
Pros: Fast autofocus, good quality LCD, decent movie mode
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. When it comes to picture quality it has few weaknesses and its length of lens means it can cope with more or less any photo opportunity.

Excerpt: If there's a running theme in our camera reviews, it's our frustration at huge megapixel ratings that push up noise rather than picture detail. With most casual shoppers assuming that more equals better, savvier consumers are left out in the cold. Panasonic is by no means blameless in this respect but it bucked the trend with its LX-series premium compacts. Now it's doing it again for ultra-zoom cameras.
Excerpt: Der er meget lidt, man ikke kan med Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ48. Et let tryk på zoomknappen, og objektivet bevæger sig hurtigt og præcist gennem det enorme zoomområde fra 25 mm til 600 mm. Det er nemt at ramme mellemindstillingerne, hvilket ikke altid er tilfældet hos konkurrenterne, og man kan fokusere så tæt på, at man kan tage gode nærbilleder af fx blomster og sommerfugle.
