  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix FZ100 is the highly anticipated successor to the best-selling Lumix FZ38 / FZ35 - or to be more accurate one of two successors, the other being the more affordable FZ45 / FZ40.

  • Excerpt: The 14.1Mp Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 's 24x optical zoom (equivalent to 25-600mm) may be 'modest' when compared to some of the latest megazoom cameras, but this DSLR ticks all the boxes for attendant features.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 review

Pocket Lint
23 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Offering the photographer both the extra length and the proportionally wider girth, it seems like every manufacturer's range demands a big zoom camera right now. All the major brands are wheeling one out. Fujifilm and Olympus are current leaders of the pack for lens power with their respective 30x optical zoom HS10 and SP-800UZ models. Against these, Panasonic's flagship big zoom "bridge" offering in the Lumix DMC-FZ100, updating the FZ38, fields a more modest 24x.
  • Pros: User friendly; all the latest "must haves" - extremely broad focal range, HD video, stereo sound, tilting high resolution LCD - are included
  • Cons: Too costly on launch, lens rattles in its housing when inactive, intrusive noise at higher ISOs, fiddly video record button

  • Excerpt: Choisir un bridge aujourd'hui, c'est choisir la facilité et une vraie polyvalence. Un bridge comme le FZ100 nous le confirme par son zoom équivalent 25-600mm (stabilisé), son écran orientable, un mode vidéo assez ambitieux (1080i), et ses 11 i/s. L'argument de la polyvalence serait valable pour tous les bridges du moment, il l'est encore plus pour le Panasonic FZ100 dans la mesure où la marque nous a habitué à la richesse (et l'efficacité) de ses automatismes et de ses...
  • Pros: Amplitude du zoom, Vidéo, Prix
  • Cons: Zoom pas tout à fait homogène et parfois piqué un peu décevant.

  • Summary: Hanteringsmässigt är Panasonic Lumix FZ100 en riktig drömkamera med snabb autofokus och grymt bra seriebildtagningsprestanda. Bilderna blir dessutom bra i de flesta lägen. Brusprestandan och det höga priset utgör dock en del smolk i glädjebägaren.
