Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ4 review

My two-month-old FZ4 is a replacement for my old LC5 (which is now my wife's). The FZ4 is a delight to use, especially for sports and wildlife, being small, light and fast. Just be sure to use Program setting rather than "heart" and use lower ISO settings as much as possible (this applies to any digital P&S). Incidentally, I looked first at the FZ5 but the FZ4 was $80-90 less, going for less than $250, including S&H.


EVF/LCD button hard to use when shooting; LCD is pretty useless in sunshine. Practice and the manual are needed for settings that require menu searches, and practice is needed for the "exposure" button to be really useful.
