The Panasonic FZ50 is a fantastic 10 mega pixel camera!

Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50 has a great 12X optical zoom which can manually be adjusted. This makes it easy to frame your shoot just the way you want without pushing a button or lever back and forth. It can also be manually focused. This makes it easy to fine tune your focus on just what you want.
Excerpt: Whether you are beginner or a professional photographer, this camera will work for anyone!! It takes the best pictures I have ever taken before!! And I just put it on the automatic function. If you are an expert on photography, it will meet or beat your expectations. AWESOME!!! Worth every penny!! I would recommend this camera to anyone who wants professional looking pictures every-time! I love it.
Excerpt: This is my first 'high end' digital camera...and I love it. It is really easy to use and it takes outstanding photos. Like most techy gear, it gets easier to use the more time you spend experimenting with it, which I did. I do recommend reading the instruction manuel, but if you are familiar with higher end cameras and/or technical photography stuff, you will have no problems using this camera.
Easy to use! Great features! Excellent picture quality!

Summary: As a owner of 2 film SLR cameras I wanted to try a good quality point and shoot camera. After many hours of research I settled on the Panasonic FZ50. I must admit I have only owned this camera for a couple of days but so far I love it. It has many features found only on more expensive cameras. Panasonic and Leica what more could you ask for.
Summary: ...and our FZ-50 is still churning out great snapshots! The wife got this for me from Amazon as always a good experience. We've used this camera in snow, rain, heat, freezing winds, on the seacoast...on and on... It has never skipped a beat. I'll admit I was initially lazy about learning how to use the many features of this thing. I mostly shoot raw and post process with DxO or ACD. I find a lot of fun and very pleasing results in aftershot processing.

Summary: Just a quickie review as most of the techie stuff has already been written by folks with a larger vocabulary than me. I want to say that this camera is super easy to get started with and even easier to grow with. I will use this camera until... or as long as I can. I also want to point out that I unwittingly grabbed a new 8Gb SDHC memory card and inserted it into my FZ50 and it used it with no problems. The problem came when I tried to retrieve the images from the card.
Excerpt: Just gave my FZ20 to my veterinarian daughter, and began using a Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ50. The lens no longer retains f/2.8 throughout the range as in the FZ20, but now all movements are internal, making it more compact and less vulnerable. It has a great zoom lens for nature photography, including macro down to 5 cm for intriguing insect photographs, all without several costly lenses. It becomes necessary to remove the lens hood for close-ups, though.
