Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 Review

Excerpt: Straight up this camera ticks most of my boxes! A swinging LCD screen IMHO is a must and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 has a beauty: 7.6cm, with a high res count of 460,000 pixels; it rotates 180 degrees horizontally and 270 vertically.
Excerpt: HD video capability on cameras is as common as trashy political ads on TV. Most digicams capture 720p clips, but several new ones take Full HD movies such as the just-released 14-megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100. Does this get us to the point we can put our old high-def camcorders on Craigslist?
Pros: 24x wide-angle zoom, High burst rates, AVCHD video
Cons: Underwhelming video and picture quality, Not worth $499
Excerpt: From the box to your hand to snapping away with the Lumix FZ100, the latest feature-laden compact superzoom from Panasonic, you get the impression you’re handling a camera that means business.
Pros: Mode wheel has very distinct indents so the camera doesn’t accidentally switch modes. Li-Ion battery rather than AAs. Stereo microphone. Nimble RAW shooting.
Cons: Poor image quality above ISO400. Electronic viewfinder is a throwaway afterthought. Expensive.
Excerpt: The FZ100 is Panasonic's most ambitious ultra-zoom camera to date. Not content with the slew of awards its previous FZ-series models have earned at Expert Reviews and elsewhere, this one takes on all challengers in virtually every department.
