  • 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, the FZ28 is amongst the smaller superzooms. Its body's made of powder and smooth finish tough black plastic, that feels good to the touch.

  • 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 DMC-FZ28 it has become clear that no genuine change has been carried out to the camera. The huge change lies in the arrival of the Micro FourThirds standard.

  • 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. So with the FZ28 you get a compact, lightweight super-zoom camera with 10 Megapixel resolution, a huge 18x optically-stabilised range, HD video recording in the 720p format, support for RAW files, a mid-sized, but good-looking 2.7in screen, manual controls and one of the best fully automatic...
  • 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.

  • Conclusion: If I was looking for a super zoom digital camera the Panasonic DMC FZ28 would be one I would strongly consider. I prefer the overall picture quality to that produced by most other brands. It has plenty of advanced features too.
  • Pros: Picture quality - advanced features - HD movie mode - length of zoom
  • Cons: Wide angle shot could be sharper

  • Excerpt: Panasonic's FZ18 has been our favourite ultra-zoom camera since we reviewed it almost a year ago. Its successor isn't much different: the only external changes are a slightly larger LCD, up from 2½in to 2.7in, and a new playback switch. Still-image resolution has increased from eight to 10 megapixels, but we're more excited by the video mode, which now captures 1,280x720-pixel frames.

  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 is an incremental upgrade of an already excellent camera, with few design changes and a smattering of internal improvements. Unless you really want to shoot 720p HD movies, there's little to tempt current DMC-FZ18 owners to upgrade, but if you're in the market for an all-in-one, do-everything camera, the DMC-FZ28 should be at the top of your list.
