Panasonic Lumix FZ72 Review

What Digital Camera
23 September 2013
  • Summary: The race between manufacturers, or rather between their respective marketing departments, to sell more cameras by printing ever bigger numbers on the box, has led to some impressive technical innovation over the years, with incredibly high-resolution sensors and ever-more-powerful zoom lenses. However this has not always resulted in better cameras.
  • Pros: Extensive focal range; Handling; Performance; Video and sound
  • Cons: Image quality issues; Relatively high price; Weighty

  • Conclusion: If you're after a big zoom at a fair price then the Panasonic Lumix FZ72 has a lot going for it. Premier to its feature set is that massive 20-1200mm equivalent zoom which offers more range than the competition out there. In practice we found above the 1000mm equivalent to be a bit too soft, but it was rare we needed to max out the zoom.
  • Pros: Massive zoom range available, decent image stabilisation, electronic viewfinder built-in, raw image quality worth the write-to-card wait, low-mid ISO settings can deliver decent image quality
  • Cons: Almost always overexposes, shutter lag, 1200mm is too soft, slow for raw file writing, competition is strong (Canon SX50 HS), no eye-level-finder for viewfinder activation

  • Conclusion: With such an extensive focal length range packed into one camera, the Panasonic Lumix FZ72 will certainly appeal to anyone looking for a do-it-all, all-in-one package. Overall it's a nicely built, responsive camera that's a pleasure to use, though it's let down a little by a limited ISO and shutter speed range, and a rather pedestrian, three-shot burst mode. Similarly-priced rivals offer more in these stakes, but nothing else matches it for zoom range.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72 Review

ePHOTOzine
18 October 2013
  • Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72 was announced in July 2013 and is a bridge camera which has a 60x optical zoom lens. At the moment this is the most amount of zoom you'll find on a digital camera. If this isn't enough for you there is an optional tele conversion lens, shown below, which means the zoom can be extended further to 102x! The FZ72 is available now for approximately £330.
  • Pros: Lots of optical zoom, Feature packed, Excellent battery life, Decent image quality, Plenty of buttons for the experienced user, Teleconverter available for additional zoom
  • Cons: Shooting slows down after just a few shots in some of the continuous shooting modes, The number of buttons may overwhelm a novice, Video quality suffers as you zoom in

Panasonic Lumix FZ72 review

  • Summary: World's longest zoom range… but it does it deliver decent images?
  • Pros: 60x zoom, Raw format shooting, Full manual control, The best thing about this camera is its huge zoom ratio. It's the world's longest available, and at 60x you've got a lot of flexibility. It's also nice to see that the widest point of the lens is 20mm, a good chunk wider than its nearest rivals and making it ideal for landscapes and capturing a large amount of the scene – traveling or holidaying photographers should love it.
  • Cons: No Wi-Fi, No touchscreen, Low resolution, small EVF, It seems like an odd decision on a camera with so much manual control that is aimed at enthusiasts to not allow you to change the autofocus point. We'd like to see that addressed for the next version of this camera, as having to focus and recompose can be a little frustrating when you've paid a decent chunk of money for a camera.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72 review

  • Excerpt: The FZ72 sits below the flagship FZ200 in Panasonic's ultra-zoom range, but unlike previous generations, it's not simply a cut-price alternative. For one thing, it's only slightly cheaper, although it'll probably come down a little from its £370 launch price. The biggest difference is the lens. The FZ200 pairs a relatively modest 24x zoom with a bright f/2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range.

  • Excerpt: Perhaps the most surprising aspect of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72 is the size of it. We half expected a camera the size of a mid-range DSLR with a zoom that size on it. However, it's not actually that bad. Sure it's a little bit bigger than a bridge camera that features a smaller zoom range, but that's to be expected. The design has been given a rework with smoother corners, a chunkier grip and adverse angles on the top where the hotshoe is located.
