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. The MOS sensor has 14.1 megapixels and maximum image size of 4320×3240 pixels, leading to a 37x27cm print. A razz of a continuous shooting speed: how about eleven pics per second at full resolution?
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? Time to test out this new 24x wide-angle zoom model… The FZ100 is one beefy Mega-Zoom. The basic-black camera weighs 1.2 pounds with battery so it has a very substantial feel.
Pros: 24x wide-angle zoom, High burst rates, AVCHD video
Cons: Underwhelming video and picture quality, Not worth $499
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. It records video at 1080p resolution, takes photos at 11fps and has a 24x zoom lens, an articulated screen and a hotshoe for an external flash or microphone. The price has rocketed, too.
