Impressive pictures and features, but this Lumix is overpriced

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100

 

Offering the photographer both the extra length and the proportionally wider girth, it seems like every manufacturer's range demands a big zoom camera right now. All the major brands are wheeling one out. Fujifilm and Olympus are current leaders of the...

User friendly; all the latest "must haves" - extremely broad focal range, HD video, stereo sound, tilting high resolution LCD - are included

Too costly on launch, lens rattles in its housing when inactive, intrusive noise at higher ISOs, fiddly video record button

The Lumix range has consistently impressed us, and, if we hadn't recently tested a truck load of alternative big zoom cameras - the Fujifilm HS10, Pentax X90 , Kodak Z981 , Olympus SP-800UZ et al - our feelings for Panasonic's DMC-FZ100 might have been...

First Look: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 is what would have been referred to as a bridge camera, before the waters between compacts and DSLRs were muddied with the Micro Four Thirds system and other hybrids. All the same, the FZ100 occupies a very good niche for...

Great lens, 11fps shooting mode, Full HD video capture with stereo audio

A bit cluttered with buttons and controls

Packed with impressive features but photo quality has regressed

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 offers image-stabilised Leica optics, 1920x1080 Full HD movies in AVCHD format with one-touch record. You also get switch-selected auto and manual focus, a hotshoe for an external flash unit and a built-in stereo microphone.

It's not cheap and has a plastic feel, and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100's video record button is awkwardly positioned. But the broad focal range is ideal for landscapes, close-ups and everything in between. Offering full HD video and stereo sound,...

Panasonic DMC FZ100

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ100 is an outstanding digital camera. It offers plenty of shooting options for both stills and videos and is one of the most powerful digital cameras you will find. The combination of picture quality and features is very hard...

Purple fringing in difficult shooting conditions

The Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ100 offers just about everything I would expect from this type of camera. It has a slight edge over its rivals at the time of writing this review. If you are in the market for an advanced and powerful compact digital camera...

Panasonic Lumix FZ100 review

 

The Panasonic FZ100 is the company's latest superzoom, offering a 24x optical zoom lens (25-600mm equivalent). But at over £400 is the FZ100 worth the cash? The What Digital Camera Panasonic FZ100...

25-600mm lens capacity, good optical image stabilisation

Expensive, no eye-level sensor for EVF/LCD switching, image quality fairly grainy, lack of sharpness at longest telephoto
