Pros Powerful zoom, accurate colour, intelligent auto fantastic but enough options for the more experienced. small enough to be easy to carry, very light, big enough to look like a real camera
Cons When i first took it out of the box i was a little disappointed but the slight plasticy feel of the camera, especially the buttons on the back panel.
Summary This camera was bought on a whim, i was looking for a replacment for my old waterproof camera, saw this and decided to buy it. I love it, there is a slight plastic feel to the buttons but ones you get used to it you don't even notice that, the camera is so light compared to some others i have tried out. I have never found it so easy to take nice photos. This is a great bridge camera, you could keep it on IA for ever and never have to worry, but it has enough functionality to explore how to take different photos using the different functions available, it may not have the Zoom of some of the newer cameras coming out, but are they really needed, and are they as easy to use. i would roccomend this camera to any one, my father who has had a 50 year passion for cameras even grudgingly admit that the quality of photos were almost as good as the ones taken with his medium range DSLR and that it negates the need to carry round lots of different lenses with the great 28mm to 486mm (optical) lens (on full 10.1 mp) but if you step down the quality slightly it gets even better. Battery life is fantastic, only thing i would really moan about is that when using the EVF it can feel a little hard and plastic.
Pros Takes great pictures but as a new user will have to work with this camera to get 98% great results.
Cons It's not as forgiving as some cameras
Summary Great lens much detail. Works more like an SLR than a point and shoot so adjusting to this will take time and experiences. Great potential for the experienced user.
Pros 72x in zoom mode; Clear, crisp picture quality; Options that will please both amateur and avid photographer; Self-explanatory; Long battery life; Cheaper than similar models
Cons Hard to maintain focus while in 72x zoom; Bulky compared to compacts
Summary The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28K is an overall outstanding semi-compact digital camera with dSLR-like features and versatility.Very inexpensive on Amazon!
