High Quality Photos

  • Excerpt: I have never really owned a high quality digital camera, so I was really hesitant about spending $1000 on a camera, but it turns out that this Panasonic - Lumix DMC-FZ30 is a great investment and perfect for any picture taking experience.  The digital camera is larger than a simple point and shoot device, but it has some great features and an interchangeable lens that makes your photos look professional.

About as close to an SLR as you can get for a lot less money.

  • Excerpt: A bit bulky and heavy to carry around when on long trips; but, worth the effort for the pictures it'll capture for you, with a little practice - you'll be pleased with the results, once you learn to use ALL of the numerous features of this great camera.  And there are a multitutde of them.  You can only become prficient by practicing using the camera and varying the settings for your experimental shots.

  • Summary: I am not a camera expert, I was trying to find a camera that could capture my son's lack of desire to hold a pose for more than 2 seconds. This camera is a huge improvement over my Nikon point and shoot. I have really enjoyed this camera so far, the quality of the photos is good and the frames per second is great. I especially love having the option to switch between the LCD screen and the viewfinder.

Exceptional quality

  • Summary: I have several Panasonic cameras with Leica lenses. All are extraordinary: they are very easy to use and are mainly photos with exceptional quality thanks to the excellent quality of their lenses. Particularly with this camera, I use it because it allows the use of external flash, and also because the range of your lens is too large. Thanks.

  • Summary: If you want to feel like a professional photographer without paying much this is your camera. The 8 megapixel camera that gives you show you pictures of excellent quality, with all the accessories that you can incorporate as wide angle, telephoto and much more like a really low price. I recommend it.
