Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ62 review


Considering the length of the zoom, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ62 is a very inexpensive camera. It's fast and produces output that's very good on the whole, but close examination reveals compression in images and there's a fair amount of grain at high...

Long zoom ; Inexpensive ; Accurate colour reproduction ; Good video performance

Some heavy compression evident upon close examination ; Grain at high sensitivities

The FZ62 is very similar to the FZ200 in many ways, but a lot of the latter's most compelling features are missing. This is to be expected in a camera that's so much cheaper and Panasonic has compensated by upping the resolution considerably. However,...

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...

I previously owned (& still own) the FZ48 so it was an easy transition for me to move to the FZ62. I have not found any of the problems that 'laago', the previous poster has experienced. Auto focus is fast & accurate, my fingers or thumb do not...

UPDATED 2/10/2012 I own this camera & after a nightmare trying to get the printable manual (see below) the jury is still out. I agree with the other reviewer/writer it has excellent features, too many without a manual to hand, also too many menus....

Value, viewfinder, some photos are good, movies are good, battery life

Body design & buttons, erratic stills focusing, no manual, no extened exposure
