Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 ReviewPosted on 2006-01-20 02:13:10 by LSDsmurf
Imaging Resource checked out this eight megapixel digital SLR camera from Panasonic, here's a short quote from their full reviex:
Though Panasonic was late offering a wide array of digital cameras, they've produced some excellent and very popular digicams in the last few years; particularly in the long zoom category. The Panasonic Lumix FZ30 combines a 12x optically stabilized zoom lens with a 8.0-megapixel sensor, a host of features, and a new burly look designed to entice novice and enthusiast in a market that's swinging toward the SLR. (The Panasonic FZ30 is very similar to the FZ20 model, the biggest difference being its 8.0-megapixel CCD vs the 5.0-megapixel chip on the FZ20, and a handful of minor control updates. It is not an SLR.) True to its Leica heritage, the Panasonic FZ30's long zoom shows very good optical quality, and the rest of the camera happily measures up as well. Read on for all the details, but if you're in the market for a long-zoom digicam with optical image stabilization, the Panasonic FZ30 looks like a good bet.
