  • Conclusion: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 Megazoom camera This could well be the eve of the disappearance of the Megazoom camera. In my opinion, this could apply to the Panasonic assortment. The Megazoom camera is based on a concept that has been around for a while, and with the introduction of the Panasonic LUMIX...

Camera Labs
1 November 2008
  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 represents a fairly minor upgrade over its predecessor, but given that was our favourite super-zoom of 2007, the new model has a great deal going for it.
  • Pros: Massive 18x range with 27mm wide angle., RAW recording and correction of fringing., HD movie recording in the 720p format., Compact light body with full manual control.
  • Cons: Fixed screen and smaller EVF than before., No flash hotshoe., Tendency to use small apertures in automatic., Lens cap blocks barrel upon power-up.

Digital Camera Review
9 October 2008
  • Summary: Glance at the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 and unless you know what to look for, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was the previous model – the Lumix FZ18. Visually, the differences between Panasonic’s latest camera to bring a stunning 18x zoom lens to the table and its immediate predecessor are...
  • Pros: Wide range of options offer something for everyone, Sharp, vibrant images, Cleaner high-sensitivity shooting than the FZ18, Excellent in-camera JPEG processing options, Strong battery life numbers, Extremely solid flash unit
  • Cons: HD video looks better than it sounds, White balance performance always a bit off, ISO 1600 still noisy, Some AF weirdness

  • Summary: Although it doesn’t boast the finest handling, isn’t the most solidly constructed and is a little expensive, the FZ28 is capable of nice images. Raw capture, fast focusing and an abundance of features make it a good all-round option.
  • Pros: Raw capture, Continuous AF, Fast focusing
  • Cons: Poor build quality for price, Noise and noise reduction, Fringing

  • Pros: Picture quality - advanced features - HD movie mode - length of zoom
  • Cons: Wide angle shot could be sharper

  • Excerpt: The last Panasonic camera we had our hands on – the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS42 – left us thoroughly impressed by its image quality and reasonable price. Their new superzoom offering – the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 does the same, here's why… 118 x 75 x 89mm in dimensions and with a weight of 417-grams,...

  • Summary: This is a decent model to choose if you want a long zoom range and versatile controls, yet don't want a bulky digital SLR. It's good for travellers in this respect, despite its soft pictures and slightly underdone colour.
  • Pros: 18x optical zoom, no noticeable chromatic aberration, no lens distortion, relatively compact size
  • Cons: Colours were a little under-saturated, images looked soft, noticeable grain at ISO 200
