The Panasonic Lumix one of the best cameras around
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-Fz35 camera offers a digital zoom of 4x the viewing area for those close shots and can also provide 18x optical zoom range for those pictures which require a wider angle.The Lumix DMC-Fz35 provides 12.1 megapixels with a 2.7 LCD. It's a tad better than the average long zoom, but slower in a few minor aspects such as focusing picture to be taken.A friend of mine says the Panasonic Lumix is worth the price of an average zoom camera at $269 to...
Excellent camera for the beginner user who wants to step it up!

Excerpt: I have this camera and consider it a nice step up from the click and shoot digital cameras. It has more advanced settings that allow you to learn how to take various shots in different light, locations, and action appropriate situations. I think the photos I've taken are awesome especially in out door day light and scenic type photos. The camera is lightweight and easy to hold when focusing in on your subject even without a tripod.
Excerpt: Primarily use Nikon DSLR's and wanted a replacement for my carry-around TZ5...(that was a great camera but couldn't get used to no viewfinder and problems in bright light on the screen etc) Amazed at the speed of the FZ38....almost no shutter lag which I could not tolerate....scored heavily there for me.
Summary: As I get into somewhat gory detail in this rather lengthy review, let me net it out in the beginning: this is an extraordinarily versatile camera of surprising quality for its price. It has enough serious features to merit a 219-page manual (in PDF format, not hardcopy), and yet with the camera in full automatic mode no technical experience is necessary to make outstanding pictures (all that's required is a good artistic eye)--after more than 50 years of photography as a...
Excerpt: My previous camera was the Fujifilm Finepix S1500, & the Panasonic Lumix FZ35 is miles ahead in speed, features, & image quality. I've had it for almost a week, & my first batch of pictures with this camera are very good, with the exception of a few that appeared a bit blurry, but any experienced photographer will tell you this is a normal occurance.
Excerpt: I enjoy using the Panasonic FZ-35. It has a learning curve, but I've been perfectly happy with the PQ. Any bad shots I've taken were likely due to inexperience. Problems: The battery / SD card slot makes a squeaky sound while pressing it with the palm of the hand - unavoidable if you want to hold the camera properly.
Excerpt: The FZ-38 take great pictures,as long you stay at low iso. After downloading pictures from every long zoom dat is avviable to day,My choise felt for the FZ-38 The canons produce to mush CA,and light fall off. P100 base iso at 150 Iso,nikon think it is an dslr lol in other words this is the only camera,thad produce great pictures in the long zoom range. Starting at 27 Mm is great,and have 18 X zoom is greater.
Summary: I have had this camera for one week and am enjoying it thoroughly. All of the positive points of this camera have been covered in other reviews, it is an excellent choice. My husband and I chose this as our new family camera to have manual and automatic abilities for our family photos, and to be able to shoot HD music videos (former filmmakers who have sold all our official equipment). Please make sure, if shooting HD video, that your location is well lit.
Summary: (Copy of a review posted on the UK site - this is the FZ38 over there) This is an initial review after one day of ownership, which I'll revise. My previous experience of digital cameras is limited to a Nikon Coolpix compact, now about 7 years old, and this camera is intended to replace the Nikon film SLR and three lenses which I've lugged around on holidays for 10-15 years. So some things that are amazing me will be just what you expect if you're used to similar cameras.
Excerpt: This camera is awesome! I don't have this camera- my friend does and I used it the other day and absolutely loved it- and it was so easy to use!n Panasonic always makes great products regardless of what it is!
