... For you techie types, Panasonic claim it lets you shoot at 3 stops less with the same results. So why is it the BEST? 1. The lenses only fault is the lack of a manual zoom. 2. 5 megapixel IS high enough. The lens quality makes up for other cameras higher pixel counts. And then some! 3. ... Read review

Panasonic Lumix DCM-FZ20 5 Meg digital camera

Advantagespowerful x12 optical zoom ,SLR true colour photo's,movies as well

Disadvantagesslightly bulky not always the easiest menu system to use

"This is a great all round camera. It has a massive x12 optical zoom with auto stabilizing software so even I with shaky hand can get perfectly still pictures ever time! This digital camera gives you SLR quality pictures slightly cheaper than a good quality SLR but you are able to down load onto a computer and print it out any size. To save the money and time fiddling around with printer you can use online websites to send you prints. They send ..." Read review

Great camera for all

AdvantagesWeight, zoom, Li battery, easy to use

Disadvantagesmanual flash

"This camera is great. I specifically wanted a camera with a large zoom as I'm going to Canada and wanted to be able to photograph animals. The zoom is incredible. 12x digital with total zoom of 48x. The anti-shake function works really well and even on 48x you can still get good pictures. Its light so it makes it fantastic for tourists who don't want to lug a tripod etc with them. It has a straightforward mode so that beginners can start straight ..." Read review

An impulse buy in the January sales Updated 16 feb Review with images

Advantagessuperb image quality, easy to use, fast action, good battery life

DisadvantagesA little bulky

"...a toy. When I saw the Panasonic Lumix FZ20 in the window of a well known camera retailer for £199.99, I had to go in and take a look. Five Minutes later I was out again, having sustained a hit on Barclaycard, clutching my new camera, and I'm very pleased with it. Goodbye to shutter lag, hello EVF, superb zoom capabilties and welcome home to my stock of SD cards, which was helpful, as I didn't need to buy anymore. I am staggered by the picture ..." Read review

Product Information for "Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20" »

Manufacturer's product description

The DMC-FZ20's advanced zoom lens takes you all the way from 36mm wide angle to 432mm telephoto. Shoot open landscapes, zoom in on a room interior, or pull a distant object right up close - all with instant zooming ease. With the FZ20, you get the same capabilities as a single-lens reflex camera equipped with a full set of interchangeable lenses. Use it to explore a new level of photographic expressivity. For example, use normal magnification for most ordinary shots, medium telephoto for portraits, and super telephoto for special long-range shots. The FZ20 even gives you the same capabilities as a super-telephoto lens in the 400mm, F2.8 class - something every serious photographer should have. Remarkably, the FZ20 offers the kind of specifications you get with a big, heavy lens, but in an extremely compact, lightweight package. With most compact zoom lenses, the brightness tends to be lower in the telephoto range. Not the FZ20. Its 12x optical zoom lens delivers F2.8 brightness all the way to full telephoto. This gives you more expressivity and greater ease of use because the exposure value doesn't change even when you zoom out to shoot long-range telephoto shots. The Elmarit lens made by Leica Camera AG of Germany has earned the acclaim of top photographers everywhere. Now some of the same cutting-edge technologies that make this lens so exceptional have been adapted to the digital camera. Presenting the LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens that inherits the traits that make Leica a legend in the camera world. Small in size yet featuring a large, bright aperture, this lens meets Leica's stringent quality standards. In fact, the FZ20 goes a step further by using ED (extra-low dispersion) glass in its lens, which helps minimize the refraction differences among light of different wavelengths. This helps to suppress the color bleeding that often occurs in telephoto shots, giving you crisp, vivid images no matter how far you've zoomed in on your subject. The CCDs used in most digital cameras have much smaller light-receiving areas than film does, so photos tend to have a high depth of field. This means that everything in the photo - including objects in the foreground and background - is in focus. The FZ20, however, takes advantage of its 12x zoom and large F2.8 aperture to offer the kind of expressivity you cannot get with conventional digital cameras. You can snap photos that capture the subject in a clear, sharp focus while giving the background a beautiful soft focus. Use the 4x digital zoom together with the 12x optical zoom and you've got ultra-powerful 48x zooming. That approximates a huge 1728mm lens on a 35mm camera.
