Summary: I thought long and hard about getting a bridge camera but was impressed by the number of positive reviews for this one. My compact has done 8 years of sterling service and still takes great pictures but the zoom is limited and the scope for 'playing' properly is limited.
Summary: Went to this camera from a compact. Apart from being bulkier and taking more time to use (as expected) this camera does everything I need it to and more. Zoom is great. Pictures are crisp and clear. Great value for the price I paid and a great step up from the compact. Practice will make perfect!
Summary: The camera is fairly light but very well made.48 times zoom WOW. It has a viewfinder as well as a three inch screen.Would recommend this camera to any serious or amateur photographer.Buy this one you will not regret it.
Summary: I bought this camera for a safari trip to Africa. So far my testing in the English. Countryside show that it is easy to use, with a fantastic zoom (cows and sheep become very close) which still gives stable images.
Summary: A great camera that does everything I want and more!! I searched for a camera that was not just a simple point and click but not so bulky as to be a nuisance. This camera fits the bill in every way and takes brilliant photos, far better than I thought it would.
Summary: Read the reviews and decided to go for it.I was not disappointed the instructions were in English and very easy to follow. although for the more advanced features are in pdf downloaded from a disc it was quite easy to print off and make a little booklet should I want to experiment when I gain more...
Summary: The first Lumix FZ62 I bought was for my daughter's birthday. I borrowed it for a visit to Cyprus where even a novice like me got some fantastic shots of the Red Arrows practising their routines. The camera is so easy to use and the zoom function is immense. It was so good I bought one for myself.
Summary: I got this camera for Christmas as I wanted to take up photography as a hobby. I am just finding my way around it at the moment but from the picture I have taken so far I am so impressed and can't wait to take lots more photos on a weekend away to the Lake District next weekend.
