The main feature is the large Leica lens with is allthe way 2.8 from 35 to 400 mm. Brilliant picture on a fairly good resolution.

I have owned this camera for several years now and due to its low MP sensor I have been trying to find an upgrade that I will like as much as this one...well I suppose it is a testament to this camera that I have had a hard time upgrading. I want a fairly compact size but I also want a good zoom range, so that is exemplified in this camera. To switch to a compact for portability is in the back of my mind but the lenses on those and the rush toward piling more and more mps on the same size ...

A bit bulky for a fixed-zoom-lens digital, but nice weight. I've taken about 8,000 pictures, more or less, with it. It's a right-handed camera, period, and I'm left handed. I've gotten over it. Problems: Auto-manual focus now has a small piece of duct-tape on it, as it kept getting shifted into manual focus. The diopter adjustment wheel also is constantly out of focus unless there's tape over it. The multiple-exposure button on the top near the "go" button keeps getting accidentally ...

Genuine 12x Zoom A Winner. I can't for the life of me work out where Jamesdak is coming from in his earlier review. I have borrowed one of these cameras and compared the zoom range to that of my Lumix DMC-LC5 (3x zoom). Both cameras have a near identical wide angle field of view. The FZ10 clearly zooms in 4x more at maximum optical zoom than my LC5. I overlaid a 400% blowup of a 3x optical image (max zoom) from the LC5 onto a 12x optical image (max zoom) from the FZ10 and they matched. I am ...

This may be the last FZ10 review you see, since it's nearly 3 years old, but I thought it would be helpful to people thinking about the durability of the Panasonic brand. My FZ10 remains pristine despite a fair amount of use. The images are phenomenal in my opinion. Noise is in the eye of the beholder, and as a 40+ year film camera (Leica) vet, respect "graininess" and find it no problem. There have been great advances in camera features since then and I am itching to upgrade (contra to ...

I've used this FZ10 cam for 18 months. Taken 20,000+ pics (not a typo) - I use the burst mode a lot for wildlife (birds n the bees etc). Only upgrade been purchasing a 1G card, well worth it. Reduces time (before the creature exits the shot) saving files and allows 540 odd instead of 70 pics on the larger setting. The colour is very good, the focus on zoom reasonable but not great. I use the manual and/or AF switch down most of the time. Macro is generally very good. Noise on very low light ...

Zoom no where near as powerful as they lead you to believe, may have the angle of view of a 420mm but not even close on the magnification. Autofocus is too slow for action and exposure is a hit miss deal. Noise is bad above ISO 100 and in my opinion make the camera unusable at the faster speeds.

Just got it USED new to me. Had a S5100 good camera but needed the hot shoe for long range flash work. The lens WOW 35mm 420mm no need for a converter here. Read the other reviews here and there right on read the manual to get the most out of it. The zoom control could be a little easyer to use. Man the lens hood makes it look mean. Love the look and feel, solid and robust. Cost me 539 cnd from a dealer with warranty and I feel like its money well spent.
