23 February 2011
  • Summary: My Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40 review finds one of the better fixed lens cameras available on the market. The FZ40 offrs a 24X optical zoom lens and a great mixture of manual and automatic control features.
  • Pros: Great mix of automatic and manual control features
  • Cons: You'll want a tripod with this camera, to protect against camera shake, Camera is very large, Occasional focus problems at full zoom extension, Beginner photographers may be overwhelmed with all of the manual control features

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.
  • 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.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ45

Pocket Lint
22 December 2010
  • Conclusion: We see the FZ45 as best suited to families wanting an affordable all-in-one option for general photography. In terms of where it sits in the Panasonic Lumix range, the DMC-FZ45 comes across as a pared down version of the FZ100, omitting that camera’s tilting higher resolution LCD and more...
  • Pros: Whopping zoom range extends creative framing possibility, dedicated video recording button for instant access, current £250 street price suggests something of a bargain
  • Cons: Not much here we haven’t already seen before, camera shake at longer focal lengths, lacks the angle adjustable LCD, hotshoe and Full HD video of the FZ100

  • Summary: Announced at the same time as the headline-grabbing FZ100 with its 11fps burst mode, free-angle screen and full HD video, the cheaper DMC-FZ45 / FZ40 inevitably suffers by comparison, but is still a worthy contender in the now crowded super-zoom market.

Tech Tudo
29 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40, com um zoom de 24x, figura entre as melhores opções de câmeras do mercado. Embora hoje em dia já haja equipamentos com aproximação maior que 30x, um zoom de 24x, que equivale a 25-600mm, ainda é uma ótima opção.
  • Pros: Superzoom., Autofoco rápido., Bateria boa., Controles manuais.
  • Cons: Processamento de imagens devagar., Resolução de vídeo não é Full HD.
