  • Conclusion: As a super-zoom camera, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ38 is up there with the best, offering good quality images, adaptability, a creative feature set and excellent video performance, which should provide beginners or intermediates with some excellent results. Advanced photographers may well prefer the more professional DSLR cameras , but the Lumix DMC-FZ38 really does offer an awful lot at a price that just can’t be ignored. Not impressed?

  • Summary: A better-than-average megazoom choice, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 delivers standout video capabilities and an excellent manual feature set. Still, it suffers from a lot of the same drawbacks as its competitors, including weak photo quality.
  • Pros: Useful 27mm wide-angle zoom; excellent image stabilization; full selection of manual and automatic exposure controls; very good 720p movie capture with operational zoom and manual controls; relatively fast.
  • Cons: Noise and compression artifacts in JPEG photos; no hotshoe.

  • Conclusion: Of course, the FZ35 would solidly perform under general day-to-day use as well and is very unlikely to disappoint any user, regardless of the intended application.

  • Excerpt: The Lumix DMC-FZ35 ($399) is the update to Panasonic's popular FZ28 super zoom camera. While both cameras share the same basic design and 18X, 27 - 486 mm Leica lens, the differences are more than skin deep. The biggest changes are an improved image stabilizer, faster autofocus system, and an enhanced movie mode, though there's plenty more.

  • Summary: Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-FZ38 / FZ35 may represent a fairly minor upgrade over its predecessor, but given that was one of the best super-zoom cameras of the past year, the new model has a great heritage to build on. So with the FZ38 / FZ35 you get a compact, lightweight super-zoom camera with 12 Megapixel resolution, a flexible 18x optically-stabilised range, HD video recording in the 720p format, support for RAW files, a medium-sized but good-looking 2.7in screen, manual...
  • Pros: Large 18x range with 27mm wide angle., RAW recording and correction of fringing., 720p HD video & choice of encoding., Compact body with full manual & HDMI.
  • Cons: Fixed screen & same specification as before., No flash hotshoe., Tendency to use small apertures in automatic., Lens cap blocks barrel upon power-up.

  • Summary: Compared to its predecessor, the FZ28, the FZ35 shows some solid changes like direct access to HD video recording, Dolby Digital sound, and the new Venus Engine HD processor. We'd like to have seen some positive changes to the viewfinder and electronic noise processing.

[REVIEW—PANASONIC LUMIX DMC-FZ35]

DPexpert
7 July 2011
  • Summary: This camera certainly has the numbers. 12 megapixels. 18X zoom. All for $770, that has to be good, doesn’t it? So why does Panasonic charge $830 for the Lumix LX3 which sports a mere 10 megapixels, a 2.5X zoom and no eye-level viewfinder? And why is that camera so popular that the company cannot make enough to meet demand? Do the words “free” and “lunch” spring to mind?
  • Pros: The lens is really quite extraordinary, in spite of its absurd specifications. Auto focus is fast, even when the lens is at its longest focal length. And resolution and sharpness are surprisingly good at 486mm – or, put another way, not as bad as expected. Image stabilisation is effective, even at the longer zoom extensions. At modest zoom lengths the lens is outstanding in every way.
  • Cons: Image noise is perplexing. In default mode, straight from the box, noise reduction is activated and its effect is unpleasant, even at ISO200. When NR is turned off the images are clean and sharp, at least when exposure is spot on. If the picture is slightly underexposed noise is an issue. Consequently we got some of the cleanest photos from the FZ35, but also some surprisingly grainy ones.
