Panasonic DMC-FZ7 Reviews

Panasonic DMC-FZ7 Reviews Photoxels has reviewed the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 and write: “The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 continues to be a best value for money and one of my very favourite. In a compact, light and solidly built body, it includes all the features desirable in a digital camera and throws in a couple that are hard to find in many other digital cameras: an effective image stabilization (the real type) and an accurate High Speed AF. All of this wrapped in an interface that is now even more intuitive to use.”

Lets Go Digital has reviewed the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ7 and write: “We can conclude that the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ7 is a powerful combination; guarantees high quality images and suits a large group of users. Despite its user-friendliness and low entry-level, the camera will certainly not limit or confine those who wish to expand their basic knowledge of photography, and are keen to experiment a little more. The Panasonic Lumix FZ7 is also an excellent step towards a possible future digital SLR camera. And well, what do you know: Panasonic have just announced that we may expect the Panasonic DMC L1 to make its entrance into the market later this year… We truly recommend the Panasonic Lumix FZ7!”

PC Mag has published a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 review and write: “In the past, we’ve awarded the Editors’ Choice to a number of Panasonic superzoom cameras, such as the Lumix DMC-FZ30, specifically for their combination of excellent optics and image stabilization. The only caveat was that most cost about what you’d pay for a D-SLR nowadays. Thankfully, prices have taken a tumble. So it’s no big surprise that the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 sells for about $400-not super-cheap, but more than $100 below what the Lumix DMC-FZ15, our former budget superzoom EC, listed for when it was introduced. This low price and the camera’s excellent optics make the Lumix DMC-FZ7 our new Editors’ Choice for budget superzooms.”

CNET has published a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 review, they gave it 7.2 out of 10 and write: “Compared to digital SLRs and some other mega-zoom cameras, the small, lightweight 6-megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 feels almost like a toy. Only after acknowledging its powerful 12X (36mm-to-432mm, 35mm-equivalent) optically stabilized lens, manual controls, extended selection of scene modes, and VGA movie capture do you realize that this camera’s capabilities far outstrip its size and weight. Despite some image flaws, this modest upgrade to the 5-megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 will likely be as popular as its predecessor, appealing to a broad range of photographers who want a camera that will allow them to improve–or prove–their photographic skills.”

Digital Camera Review has posted a review for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 and say: “The FZ7 (12X image stabilized Leica zoom, 6 megapixel resolution, super fast performance, and SLR like handling and ergonomics) is an evolutionary rather than revolutionary update of last year’s very popular Panasonic FZ5. The “best in class” FZ5 was designed by photographers for photographers. The FZ7 actually improves on its illustrious predecessor, and does so at a lower price. Check back here in a few days for an in-depth review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7.”

DigiCam Review has reviewed the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 and write: “This is a very good digital camera, a definite improvement over the older Panasonic FZ series digital cameras – with a 6 megapixel sensor, a high quality Leica 12x optical zoom lens, and a 2.5″ screen – albeit with a low resolution. The camera has a very good wide aspect ratio video mode. The camera produces very good images with good colour, detail and sharpness straight from camera – unfortunately noise is high, and purple fringing is higher than average. I’ve had the FZ3, an earlier 3 megapixel version, and been immensely happy with it, I suspect I would be very happy with the FZ7 if I were to upgrade. With the Lumix FZ7 (and FZ3) it is necessary to learn to live with the lower ISO settings to avoid noise, something that shouldn’t be a problem as the rest of the camera is so well thought out and put together. The Panasonic FZ7 is fast and easy to use with scene modes or full manual controls to suit every level of experience.”

Digital Camera Resource has reviewed the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 where they conclude: “Despite a few flaws (most notably noise in images), the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 is a very likable ultra zoom camera, and one that I can recommend. It combines high quality optics, image stabilization, manual features, and performance, without breaking the bank. The noise issue might only be a problem for those who will be shooting at high ISOs or making very large prints. For everyone else, this is a very capable ultra zoom that should be on your shopping list.”

Steves Digicams has reviewed the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 and write: “I was very happy with the FZ7. It is a robust performer that captures beautiful 6-megapixel images, possesses a generous 12x zoom range, and let’s not forget it can be easily used by every person in your household or office. With 6-megapixels, you can create stunning prints up to 13×19-inches. We feel the FZ7 will make an excellent choice for any consumer in the market for an affordable “super-zoom” model. With an MSRP of under $400 dollars, it offers a great “bang for your buck” and is sure to be a very popular model this year.”

Digital Camera Info has reviewed the Panasonic DMC-FZ7 Digital Camera and say: The Panasonic DMC-FZ7 should attract a loyal following. It’s easy and fun to use. It’s versatile, and cheap for what you get. In our experience, no one does image stabilization better on compact cameras than Panasonic up to this point, and we give the company credit for its work on the technology. We also really like the lens. Not only does it have a nice range, but it maintains a wide aperture throughout that range. The Panasonic DMC-FZ7 is a very useful camera and is easily transportable.

DP Review has reviewed the Panasonic DMC-FZ7, there review is extensive but here’s just an excerpt about the digital camera: Over the last few years we’ve been spoilt – cameras have seen huge leaps in capabilities from one generation to the next, whilst at the same time prices have steadily been falling. I think it’s safe to say that for the time being we’ve got to accept that these ‘great leaps forward’ are fewer and farther between, and the best we can expect from new models is tweaks and minor face lifts. In this context the Panasonic DMC-FZ7 is a welcome upgrade to an already excellent camera – it offers everything that made the FZ5 so great, and adds a few features, better manual control (via the new joystick) and a refined design. And of course you still get a very reliable image stabilization system and a superb, fast 12x Leica-designed lens.
