Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 review


The 10-megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28's 18x (27-486mm equivalent) zoom may seen modest compared with some of the other megazooms on the market, such as the 26x zoom Olympus SP-590 . But the FZ28 makes up for these possible perceived shortcomings...

Useful 27mm wide-angle zoom; excellent image stabilization; full selection of manual and automatic exposure controls; 720p movie capture with operational zoom; relatively fast.

Prone to soft, noisy photos; no hotshoe.

Other cameras may deliver higher resolution and longer optical zooms, but the Panasonic FZ28 proves that the "more is better" presumption isn't always valid.

Panasonic Lumix FZ28


Panasonic's new Lumix DMC-FZ28 has features that give it a jump on many of its competitors in the advanced point-and-shoot and megazoom categories. Its predecessor (the Lumix DMC-FZ18) was already a good camera, though not without a few flaws: It...

Powerful 18x optical zoom lens ; Shoots high-definition movies

Auto white balance acts unpredictably ; Slow to focus at telephoto end

Light, durable, and easy to use, this Panasonic megazoom model performs marvelously under most conditions.

Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ28 review


One year after reviewing the LUMIX FZ18, we now turn to the Panasonic LUMIX FZ28. Its design is more or less the same, and still based on the concept dating back to the time of the FZ8 Megazoom camera. The Panasonic FZ28 Megazoom remains compact yet...

This could well be the eve of the disappearance of the Megazoom camera. In my opinion, this could apply to the Panasonic assortment. The Megazoom camera is based on a concept that has been around for a while, and with the introduction of the Panasonic...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 Review


The new Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 is the successor to the popular, one-year-old FZ18 camera. The defining feature of the Panasonic FZ28 is still its massive 18x zoom lens, now equivalent to a slightly wider-angle 27-486mm focal length. The FZ28 is a...

In summary the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 is a marginally better camera than the FZ18, with better image quality, a slightly bigger LCD screen, very useful and improved Intelligent Auto mode for beginners, and the added attraction of HD video. And thanks...
