  • Cons: Lens cap easily misplaced; poor spontaneous, indoor, night photos; flash is too 'hot' (overexposure).

  • Excerpt: This camera was bought for me as a present. I wanted to dSLR , however it wasn't with in our budget range. I recieved this last christmas and have loved it ever since. There are so many great features in this camera. I love all the different modes that is has. I use Auto a lot when i don't have time to play with the manual mode. It love how it has auto focus or manual focus. I love that i can use either the view finder or the flip out lcd screen.

DMC-FZ50

  • Summary: When my nice little Sony was stolen a friend lent me her camera. It was the DMC-FZ50. While a little heavy and of less convenient size than the Sony, it has greater flexibility and the pictures are far superior. At the price, it is affordable.

Almost an SLR, almost excellent.

  • Summary: This would be an excellent choice for an enthusiastic amateur who isn't interested as much in the nuts and bolts of interchangeable parts. Not pro quality.
  • Pros: Image size, form factor, usability.
  • Cons: Slight noise problem in RAW mode, full DSLRs available for only a little bit more.

Great camera, but only minor disappointments

  • Summary: Buy it. Unless you really would prefer a DSLR, in which case you shouldn't even be looking at this unit.
  • Pros: great feel, lightweight, simple controls, fabulous lens. Easy to learn, flexible as any SLR
  • Cons: noise reduction hit above 200 ISO. Nothing else.

  • Summary: Great camera if you don't mind a bulkier camera that you can't just throw in your bag and a great step between point and shoot and SLR.
  • Pros: Great photos, very easy operations, zoom ring
  • Cons: Bulky, but expected from a "superzoom" camera

Great Camera

S. Mcghie, Amazon

  • Summary: I am best described as a "gifted amateur with a good eye." I've had photos published in national publications and I am the official photographer for a national beauty pageant, and bought this camera in late October just before our national event. This is my 3rd digital camera. But in the past I have used analog to photograph the pageant (Cannon Elan 7). I chose Lumix FZ 50 mainly because of the 12X Optical Zoom, the number of pixels were also very important to me.

Superior advanced digicam

  • Summary: This is my first Panasonic camera so I am coming to this completely objectively. People seem to be divided into two groups regarding the FZ50 (and by extension, most of Panasonic's recent digicams) - those who find it's image quality impressive despite it's limitations and enjoy it's superiority in most other areas and those who feel the FZ50 should have been a lot more than it is, lacking the output to back up it's DSLR stylings and not being a revolutionary upgrade...
