Pop Photo
16 December 2008
  • Excerpt: We were able to get our hands on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 a few days before today's official announcement, and, to put it briefly, the Olympus SP 550UZ appears to have some serious competition in the EVF ultrazoom category.

Personal Electronics buzz
20 August 2008
  • Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-Z18 digital camera with an 18x zoom has some tremendous features you would expect to find in a pricier camera. The 8.1 MP resolution with Leica DC lens and an amazing MEGA O.I.S is just the beginning. I looked around and this point and shoot is heads above the rest.

  • Conclusion: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 Megazoom camera The success of the Megazoom cameras lead to a farther advancing of the concept and to equip a small housing with no less than 18x optical zoom. The resolution of 8 Megapixels suffices easily for printing small to large prints.

  • Conclusion: In this case all the Internet buzz was right on target. This is probably the best super zoom camera (12x and above) I’ve tested to date. It’s responsive, saves files relatively quickly, has a boatload of manual adjustments and its Intelligent Auto works very nicely.

  • Pros: Range of features, Design, Image quality at low ISO
  • Cons: Plasticky build, Noise throughout range, Highlight control

  • Conclusion: Panasonic are well-acquainted with the formula of combining high specification optics with high sensor resolution and the Lumix DMC-FZ18 is no exception. The optical zoom lens has a range of 28mm to 504mm! Unfortunately these specifications are marred by some poor design choices.
