FZ1000: gutted
Aug 1, 2014

After waiting for so long I received my FZ1000 yesterday, supplied by Mathers of Lancashire who have been superb to deal with.

From the start things were not good as  I lifted the box containing the FZ1000 of the kitchen table being surprised at how heavy it was.

Once opened I took the camera out of the box, and knew there and then, that it was not for me, because quite simply it is too heavy. I should have paid more attention to the dimensions, but I didn't, hence the shock at the camera weight.

Having damaged vertebrae following a road accident last October I need a lightweight camera. I am gutted but will be hanging about on here watching how the camera performs and wish all users the very best.

Moral of the story: read the spec sheet and get a grasp of the weight and dimensions before ordering

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000
