Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ62 review

 

The FZ62 is the successor to the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ48, which was one of our favourite ultra-zoom cameras of 2011. We were particularly impressed that Panasonic had moved from 14 megapixels in the earlier FZ45 to 12 megapixels in the FZ48, as this...

Not much different to last year's FZ48, but that's no bad thing. A solid all-rounder at a great price

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ60

 

The FZ60 offers a lengthy optical zoom in a well-featured package, but image purists won't be satisfied with just JPEG capture and a steep price.

24x optical zoom ; Images have good colour rendition ; Good quality sound from the built-in microphone ; Very fast autofocus

No automatic detector to switch between EVF and screen ; JPEG only ; Has the tendency to overexpose photos and video

If you are forking out for a premium-priced superzoom camera, you might as well save up a little more and spend it on the FZ200, which gives you a fast and constant lens at f/2.8, as well as RAW capture.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ62 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ62 (also known as the DMC-FZ60) is a new super-zoom bridge camera featuring a wide-angle 24x zoom lens and 16 megapixel MOS image sensor. Successor to the year-old FZ48 model, the Panasonic FZ62 compact also offers a 3-inch...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ62 is a modest but solid upgrade of last year's FZ48 model, principally adding more megapixels, much faster burst shooting, expanded ISO range and more creative effects. While image quality exceeds its predecessor, despite the...

REVIEW—PANASONIC LUMIX DMC-FZ60]

 

This 16 megapixel “bridge” camera has a 25–600mm Leica-branded lens with f2.8–5.2 aperture. It is fitted with an electronic viewfinder and a fixed position LCD. The lens is image stabilised, as it needs to be with such extreme telephoto extension. All...

Picture quality is generally good, although resolution falls off slightly at extreme telephoto. Video quality is excellent with the Active Mode stabilisation smoothing out walking-with-camera sequences. Playback from the SD card through a Panasonic...

The electronic viewfinder is not up with the best of the breed in colour, contrast and resolution. It is handy for framing in bright light but does not give an accurate representation of the subject ; VERDICT: There was a time when we were scornful of...

There was a time when we were scornful of these super zoom pseudo SLRs. The viewfinders were woeful. The shutter lag was so extreme that it was impossible to capture moving subjects. And on some models the EVF blacked out when the shutter button was...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ60

 

Pretty good for a camera a supposed #2 among Panasonic superzooms

Priced lower than FZ200 with many of the same features, Surprising depth of manual control

Zoom is a bit short by today’s outlandish standards, Lots of competition with better features, longer zooms, or lower prices

For the model that’s the lesser of Panasonic’s two new FZ-series superzooms, the FZ60 is a pretty impressive camera. It doesn’t match the zoom range of the class-leading ultrazooms anymore, but it does seem to offer solid image quality, based on our...
