Summary: I wanted to get something between a PnS and a DSLR and this camera was ideal. Didn't want to spend heaps and buy a DSLR when I didn't know how to use most of the features, so this was meant to be a transition camera for me.
Excerpt: I bought this camera last month. I was skeptical about superzooms, but I needed one to photograph my 5year-old twins while playing and running without being noticed. The Panny is fantastic: responsive, pics full of detail, no barrel distortion at wide angle, no purple fringing,good HD movies, long...
Summary: This review is from: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 12.1MP Digital Camera with 18x POWER Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.7 inch LCD (Electronics) Hi, I'm not going to spend my time giving my viewpoints on the attributes of this camera, there are already hundreds that reflect my own (4-5 stars).
Summary: Over a decade ago I envisioned the day when still photography and video photography would merge into a single, tapeless camera. It would have the form-factor of a camera, rather than being built around the media it formerly needed to accommodate. And it would have fine optics in front.
Summary: I bought this camera for my trip to Vietnam. I was going to Asia first time and I wanted to be able to take better pic than regular digital camera. I bought Lumix because I read a lot of good reviews and now I know why- because it is a very good, easy to use camera AND IT TAKES AMAZING PHOTOS.
Summary: I dont know where to begin with this camera, it has so many features found in higher end models and brands! The auto mode is one of the best I have ever seen in a point and shoot and it really works well.
Summary: FZ35 is an upgrade for me from a FZ8. There is not really much to compare between the two. The FZ35 is packed with probably twice as many useful features and it takes at least two times better pictures...especially when it comes to noise (FZ8 is really bad at that aspect).
Summary: Being used to lugging around 20 lbs. + with my DSLR kit, I am very happy to carry a camera around with a mere fraction of the weight, but with a lot of the features I need. I like to carry a camera with me all the time as part of my job with the newspaper.
Summary: I wanted to downsize from a dSLR to a smaller camera because the bigger camera was just too heavy to lug around my neck all day especially since I had a zoom lens on it. I also wanted a small camera that had a viewfinder.
