Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 Review

 

Despite stellar specs, Panasonic's Lumix DMC-FZ100 takes noisy still photos and poor-quality video.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 review

 

Full-size megazooms, especially the pricier ones, are generally viewed as bridge cameras--something more than a point-and-shoot, but less than a digital SLR. However, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 is really the only megazoom I've tested in the past...

Outstanding feature set and shooting options; fast shooting performance.

Menu system can get confusing; JPEG photo quality tanks at ISO 400.

As long as you're willing to work with raw image files, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 is one of the best full-size megazooms you can get.

Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100

 

Hybrid shooters don't have to be awkward. No one bothered telling that to Panasonic.

Mode wheel has very distinct indents so the camera doesn’t accidentally switch modes. Li-Ion battery rather than AAs. Stereo microphone. Nimble RAW shooting

Poor image quality above ISO400. Electronic viewfinder is a throwaway afterthought. Expensive

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 is a new super-zoom camera featuring a wide-angle 24x zoom lens, 14 megapixel high-speed MOS image sensor and 11fps continuous shooting at full image resolution. Successor to the popular FZ38 model, the bridge-style...

The popular FZ38 camera is a hard act to follow, but the new Lumix DMC-FZ100 propels Panasonic back to the super-zoom leading pack, with a host of new features and usability enhancements that add up to one very capable do-it-all camera. The FZ100 only...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100

 

The Panasonic Lumix FZ100 is the highly anticipated successor to the best-selling Lumix FZ38 / FZ35 - or to be more accurate one of two successors, the other being the more affordable FZ45 / FZ40.For the FZ100, Panasonic has replaced the FZ38 / FZ35's...

24x optical zoom with effective stabilisation., Very fast burst shooting modes., Articulated 3in / 460k pixel screen., 1080i HD video with microphone input., Flash hotshoe., RAW recording

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 is an ultra-zoom with an impressive ultra-wide angle 24X optical zoom lens, equivalent to 25-600mm. This advanced ultra-zoom has all photographic controls expected from a prosumer model: full-manual controls, spot...

Excellent white-balance, Low optical distortion, Generally remains responsive, Fast autofocus speed, Quick shutter lag, Awesome LCD visibility, Quite good usability, Above average battery-life

Image noise at all ISO, Prone to overexposure, Strong softness above ISO 200, Poor color accuracy, Poor focus in low-light, Slow shot-to-shot speed, Tiny EVF, Play button too flush

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100 is a feature-rich ultra-zoom with a class-leading high-speed continuous drive. Within its ergonomic body, this digital camera packs an extremely versatile 24X optical zoom lens of exceptional quality.
