Summary: FZ50S is the "Legend" machines of Panasonic & one of the best examples of "what they can do, if they want!" Leica lens on this Legend FZ50S is just superb. The depth & clarity of the photos are unbelievable... last but not least the limited silver edition FZ50S is a beauty!
Summary: I have been using my mother's DMC-FZ50S camera for a couple of years. Recently, I decided to buy one of my own. I chose to not update to the newer FZ70 or other models because the FZ50 has a receptacle for remote wireless shutter release not available on newer models.
Summary: This was purchased to replace an earlier model. I love the features and it takes nice sharp pictures. There are internal options to enhance the photos with different color treatments right in the camera!! Nice SD card with it too! Prompt shipping as communicated by vendor!!
Summary: I bought this camera about eight years ago and have taken something like 10,000 photos with it. I'm a longtime beginner photographer with no training other than reading several books. Landscape photos with this camera are fantastic and garner (unearned) praise.
Summary: I purchased my camera in 2007 so I've had it for 7 years now. It has been literally all over the world. From China/Vietnam, all through Europe, a couple stops in Africa and several places in South America. The only place I had an issue was a day trip to Antarctica.
