Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ4 review

Excellent performance for the $$. I am very impressed with OIS and the 12x zoom lens. The camera is also incredibly fast and responsive. Focus and shutter lag feels dSLR class.

Picture quality is excellent and the camera is very flexible. The only conditions that really stress it are low light situations.


1) Feels kinda light and plasticy, but seems to be well made.

2) Not a strong performer in low light at high ISO values. The OIS can help though allowing longer shutter speeds at lower ISO values. For the $350cdn I payed for this camera, it is an excellent performer. I simply couldn't find any sub$400 cameras that I would rather have.
