Summary: The DMC-FZ47 is a really nice camera. I also have a DMC-FZ35 and was looking for a gift for someone. I got the DMC-FZ47 one evening in August 2012 when the price dropped to $199.99 for a few hours. I figured I'd keep the better camera.
Summary: In my search for a Megazoom I first bought a Canon and returned it the next day highly disappointed. I then found the Panasonic Lumix and am very pleased. The camera is much faster than anything else in its price range and some in a high range. The zoom is very good and the features are easy to use.
Summary: Before I start I want to make it clear that I am not an expert or even an experienced photographer. In fact my only previous camera is a little point and shoot which really wasn't meeting my needs. That is the reason that I decided to take a step up into a bridge camera.
Summary: After reading SEVERAL reviews it came down to the FZ47, FZ150 and Canon t3. I went with this one because of the price. It simply fit my budget and the reviews were great. I have a Canon HD Camcorder so I didn't need the FZ150's video options. I felt the FZ47 was a better deal than the Canon.
How to download the motion picture file from panasonic DMC FZ 47K from sundisk to pc?
17 March 2012
Summary: I got a panasonic dmc fz47k Dec last year from amazon. I took motion pictures (videos) and they are very good. The problem I have is I only can play back those motion pictures from the LCD monitor of the camera, but I cannot download those motion pictures through a sundisk reader into my pc,even...
Summary: I decided to get myself a camera as Ive been without one for a few years and wanted to be able to snap some nice shots. I was tired of point and shoot as the focus wasn't always great and when I'd take action shots (I ballroom dance with friends for fun) they'd be blurry. Ick.
Summary: overall very nice, impressed with its superzoom quality. after zooming in, image quality is still very nice. but i was disappointed with this, while trying to take 'macro' pictures. but apart from that, it is really nice.
Pros: very nice build, good image quality and best cam in its class
A mix of improvements and steps backward from the previous generation

Summary: My first Panasonic was the DMC-FZ35K, after owning two Canon PowerShot S-series cameras. I chose not to upgrade to the FZ40, as the improvements were not too significant. I was not considering purchasing the FZ47 either, but since it was so steeply discounted ($190), I decided to take the plunge.
Summary: I bought this camera about three weeks ago for an incredibly low price. I had wanted to get the FZ150 for its fast, sustained burst mode and hot shoe, but when the FZ47 was offered for half the price of the FZ150, I changed my mind.
