Panasonic FZ28 Price Watch

First published on: Sunday, 25 January 2009

The price of most digital cameras trend downwards over time, and the same should occur in the case of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 super-zoom prosumer digital camera.

I’m not planning for any scheduled updates, but do check back here from time to time for the latest price on the DMC-FZ28 and accessories.

The Panasonic FZ28 comes in two flavors — black and silver.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28K 10MP Digital Camera with 18x Wide Angle MEGA Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Black): $488.00 ($58.05 price increase since the last update).

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28S 10.1MP Digital Camera with 18x Wide Angle MEGA Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Silver): $459.99 ($129.96 price drop).

Some of the standard accessories for the FZ28 include:


  • Panasonic CGR-S006A/1B Li-ion Battery: $36.33. Get a second, backup battery for your FZ28. This way, you can be sure your camera continues to have a power source during extended shooting sessions.

  • For storage, the FZ28 uses SD or SDHC cards.

    Refer to Rob Galbraith's <a href="http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/camera_multi_page.asp?cid=6007-9597">SD / SDHC card write speed tests</a> (done on a Nikon D90) to get an idea on the relative write and read speeds of different brands of cards. At the time of writing (Oct 29, 2009), the <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&keywords=SanDisk Extreme III SDHC&tag=dpnotes-20&index=blended&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325">SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards</a> occupy the top two spots.
    
    To ensure smooth recording of video and high resolution images, go for Class 6 or faster cards.</li>
    

Good luck shopping for your Panasonic FZ28!
