Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40 review

 

The Lumix DMC-FZ40 is the lower-priced linemate to Panasonic's other full-size megazoom, the FZ100 . The two are separated by about $100 and a whole lot of features. Many of those features probably aren't deal-breakers for a lot of people, but one of...

Excellent feature set and shooting options for the money; nice design; great battery life.

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

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ40 is a solid megazoom, but its low-light photos need extra attention.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ45 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ45 (also known as the DMC-FZ40) is a new super-zoom camera featuring a wide-angle 24x zoom lens and 14 megapixel CCD image sensor. Successor to the popular FZ38 model, the bridge-style Panasonic FZ45 compact also offers a...

Announced at the same time as the headline-grabbing FZ100 with its 11fps burst mode, free-angle screen and full HD video, the cheaper DMC-FZ45 / FZ40 inevitably suffers by comparison, but is still a worthy contender in the now crowded super-zoom...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ45 / FZ40

 

Panasonic's Lumix FZ45 / FZ40 is the much-awaited update to the highly popular Lumix FZ38 / FZ35. As you'd expect, Panasonic has inevitably boosted the pixel count giving the FZ45 / FZ40 a 14 Megapixel CCD sensor. In better news, the zoom lens has been...

24x optical zoom with decent stabilisation., 'Shooting priority' playback button., Long battery life and compact body., Bayonet mount lens hood included

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ40 review: This super-zoom digital camera takes amazing photographs

Excellent image quality, easy to use, good price, great battery life

Mild pixelation and digital distortion in photographs taken in dull lighting without the flash

It is really refreshing to see a camera like this one on the market: The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ40 is a well-rounded digital camera equipped with an impressive 24x optical zoom.
