. . 1) One of the most over-priced, over-valued camera ever at that time, I chaged my Panasonic FZ-50 for a very fine Fujifilm S6000fd 2) Very un-happy noise image, ISO-200 is very very bad. The fujifilm s6000/6500fd win easily. The ISO-200 of Panasonic it’s like ISO-400 or more from my Fujifilm. The Fujifilm is usable up ISO-800, and at least no so ugly at ISO-1600 like Panasonic FZ-50.

I've had this camera for 7 years. Previously I was a coolpix person going up every year; I switched to a Panasonic Lumix FZ50 primarily for the lens mounted zoom control. I had no idea about sensor size and didn't care much about zoom amount or resolution. For financial reasons I have not bought another camera since. This camera fulfills most of my picture taking needs. I have taken very satisfying panoramas by software stitching, enough so that i have printed some outstanding [imho] 12x40 ...

Bought it in April 2007, so 3+ years of solid performance from this baby. Last year bought the SONY HX1 which is amazing in low light, ie: night club, restaurant, concert situations, etc, w/o flash. But picture quality, outdoor pictures, can not touch the FZ50. This summer I've been looking for a new camera to take on vacation, thinking maybe there is something better than my 3yr old FZ50. Tried the brand new SONY NEX5, what a disappointment, tends to overexpose, flash pics not great, low ...

Truly a great camera that has made me become more serious about my photography. The ergonomics are particularly good - this camera makes you want to pick it up and use it. Problems: None, it really exceeded my expectations.

I've been using this camera for about 2 years and have found it to be one of the best around. I'm also using it to create GigaPan http://gigapan.org/viewProfile.php?userid=1242 images of more than 2 Gigapixels and it produces some of the sharpest detail, rivaling those of medium format cameras. I've also used it in temps as low as -35C with no problems. Problems: None

I have had my Panasonic FZ 50 for over two years now. Love it. It's been an excellent camera and used it quite a bit and never had any problem. Here are some samples http://oldedward.jalbum.net/FLOWERS/slides/P1020211.html

I have owned 2 FZ50's, and both were very, very good, IF you accept the fact that this type of camera simply is not cut out for low-light photography! (noise). I have had the FZ20, FZ30, FZ50, and I now have a Canon EOD 50D, for which I've bought and used several good quality lenses too: Canon 70-300 2.8 L IS USM, Canon 17-55 2.8 IS USM, Sigma 17-70 2.8-4.5 DC Macro, and the last one being the Tamron's 18-270mm 3.5-6.3 VC because of it's zoom range, making it THE allround lense for me. Even ...

Well, I didn't get to finish. As stated, I used the FZ30 for a couple of years and found that I had to coax a good image out of it by working Photoshop. The image was there, but right out of the camera it had a flat look. My first step after cropping was to jack up contrast to see if that had a positive effect. And so on. In the end I almost always got a good picture, some really awesome ones too. Now I see on the FZ50 that right away the picture looks more lively and bright. Much less ...

I used the previous version, the FZ30 for a couple of years and liked it fine. I did notice on the 30 that the
