Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30

  • Conclusion: If we could only have one camera for all our photo and video needs, this would be on our short list. But the FZ-30's price is getting up into the price range of D-SLRs.
  • Pros: Fast, 12X zoom lens. High resolution. Faster startup than previous models. Very comfortable D-SLR-like feel. Mechanical zoom ring lets you change focal length during videos.
  • Cons: Noise in images. Expensive. Bulky.

  • Summary: The FZ30 is a joy to take pictures with. If not for the price tag, and the image noise problem, this would be one of our favourites. As it stands, it is a solid entry by Panasonic, and will satisfy most users.
  • Pros: Great design, full set of features, big zoom
  • Cons: Image noise is a problem, pricey considering the cost of SLRs

  • Conclusion: Panasonic propose un successeur à son FZ20. Le FZ30 poursuit dans la lancée en proposant des caractéristiques lorgnant celles des reflex. Commandes manuelles côtoient ainsi des modes automatiques et capacités vidéo.
