Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50 Review at DPReview.com

First published on: Tuesday, 12 September 2006

Simon Joinson of DPReview.com has just posted a review of the flagship 10.1MP Panasonic DMC-FZ50 digital camera.

Read the full review here.

Simon lists the conclusion points on page 19 of the review, saying that the FZ50 performs admirably for a camera that bridges the gap between consumer digitals and the full-blown digital SLR cameras, but has serious image quality and noise issues above ISO200.

The attraction of such a camera, in my opinion, remains in the realm of low-ISO photography, or at least in good light, where the 10.2 megapixels offer lots of room for cropping and printing large.

Product or macro photography also benefits from the huge 12x, 35-420mm equivalent, optical zoom (optically stabilized with Panasonic’s MEGA O.I.S. system — means you can get shake-free images at low shutter speeds without the use of flash — handy in museums) and large depth-of-field due to the use of a small, 1/1.8” CCD imaging sensor.
