Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ45

CNET
19 April 2014
  • Summary: Despite a few shortcomings, the FZ45 superzoom offers excellent value. It resembles a dSLR put on a hot wash, but it's easier to use and packed full of the latest must-have features. It feels like we've seen much of what's on offer here before, however.
  • Cons: Camera shake at longer focal lengths; Nothing we haven't seen before.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ45 / FZ40

Camera Labs
1 October 2010
  • Summary: Panasonic's Lumix FZ45 / FZ40 is the much-awaited update to the highly popular Lumix FZ38 / FZ35. As you'd expect, Panasonic has inevitably boosted the pixel count giving the FZ45 / FZ40 a 14 Megapixel CCD sensor. In better news, the zoom lens has been extended to 24x providing a little extra coverage at the wide angle end and more telephoto reach with a 25-600mm range.
  • Pros: 24x optical zoom with decent stabilisation., 'Shooting priority' playback button., Long battery life and compact body., Bayonet mount lens hood included.
  • Cons: Telephoto image quality., Poor continuous shooting at full resolution., Fixed screen., No still capture during video recording.

  • Conclusion: There's a lot to like about this camera, so long as you're aware of the limitations of the monster lens and the HD video recording features. If you don't want the hassle of changing lenses, the DMC-FZ45's smart technology, quality optics and convincing image quality make it a great buy for £300.
