Reviews and Problems with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100
Showing 1-10 of 46
New and improved only means cheaper, less quality and less user friendly
10 August 2012
Summary: I loved the FZ 35 and the FZ 50...but there are a few features missing from this camera and I did not research them well enough...First there is no "O" ring for the manual focus..there is manual focus but with a very inconvenient toggle switch instead of a "O" ring. That I do not like at all. second, Panasonic ought to be ashamed for not including a paper manual....it is inconvenient to have to go to a PDF file on line..
Excerpt: Its a very light and conenient for travelling if you dont want to lug around 600+grs of toysaround you days and weeks. Pretty sharp images and fastAF since the lens are made from legendary LEICA. Get it if you can if you are after good image and low light videos Problems: Can be a bit tricky with scenes selections and other modes.
Not sure it's worth the effort, but can be quite good

Summary: On paper this is GREAT camera. I'm no pro, so take my review with it's grain of salt. I tried using this camera for 3 weeks, took hundreds (thousands maybe?) of pics and video, but the percentage of shots worth keeping remained low. I've been on all the forums and review sites, I've seen that this camera IS capable of amazing image quality and composition. IT JUST REQUIRES TOO MUCH work.
Summary: I was so excited about this newest camera from Panasonic. I have loved each new version as it came out. I expected this time would be no different. I've had it several days but after some testing it will be going back tomorrow. I took six groups of photos with similiar settings - macro, indoor, landscape, - using the FZ100, FZ35, ZS7. I showed them to my husband without him knowing which was which, and the results are interesting.
Seeing is believing, FZ35-FZ100 Comparison: REVISITED

Summary: I enjoyed this camera for the 36 hours I have used it. Like another reviewer, I really wanted to like it. I have enjoyed the FZ18, the FZ28, and the FZ35. I bought this based on my good previous experience with the FZ series. After taking pictures under identical conditions (indoors, ISI200, manual exp) with my old FZ35 and the new FZ100, I can report that the 35 has better image quality. The images on the 100 are significantly, visibly noisier.
Excerpt: Фотоаппарат для любителей, покупающих технику по внешнему виду и характеристикам типа количества пикселей и супер-пупер зума, который в реальной жизни необходим крайне редко.
Pros: -красивый корпус -неплохой жк дисплей -хорошая оптика (без искажений по краям и хорошей светосилой на широком угле) -эффективный стабилизатор -удобное управление -высокое качество фотографиий при минимальном ИСО в солнечный день -видео со стерео звуком
