Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ45

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: A well-performing bridge that offers a compelling alternative to a full-blown DSLR. Image quality is good and all that lets it down for us is the feel of it
