Summary: i bought this to be a travel camera when i dont want to take my Canon 1100D with three lenses (18-55mm; 55-250mm; 14mm) with me as it just creates too much weight on the back. The zoom and the good reviews enticed me to buy this model.
Summary: This camera is a mixture of good and not quite so good ! The results at full optical zoom are pretty good, and at least as good as I expected. Pretty amazing to be able to get good results at that distance while handheld. i zoom will then take it up to 120x .
Good camera but disappointing lack of key features

Summary: This is a nice camera, and I love it. It feels and looks great, takes great pictures and is packed with features like the ability to sleect aperture priority or chutter priority as well as full auto programme mode and a host of otrher shooting modes.
Summary: Apart from the zoom, its pretty average. It does have a seperately purchased adaptor for powering from the mains which is useful, but there is no auxilliary battery supply availaible (ie: an AA battery pack).The on screen menu makes it simple for a novice user. It is cheaper than Canon.
Summary: This camera has a 60x zoom and 20mm wide angle capability. I bought it assuming an upgrade on my prior 42x zoom camera. Snag is that it isn't. True - the 20mm wide angle IS an improvement - but the 60x zoom actually was too noisy and processed, resulting in unclear images - and direct comparison...
Summary: Déçu par le zoom en effet je possède un fz150 et le grossissement est pratiquement analogue pour moi ce n est pas un 1200 La prise en main est agréable et les commandes sont similaires donc on est pas perdu pour le fonctionnement Fait des photos correctes bon rapport qualité prix
