great little camera,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic Lumix FZ62 - Black + Case and 16GB Memory Card + Extra Battery (16.1MP, 24x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD (Electronics)
bought this camera as an upgrade to my simple point and shoot camera but was not confidant of going direct to an SLR. Need this camera for an upcoming cruise and wanted to take some good pictures. This camera does excatly what I wanted in that it is a point and shoot and if the mood takes me I can mess around with apertures and shutter speeds. I think the Panaorama mode is brilliant and will be very usefull on Holiday. great built in flash for thse nightime shots and the Zoom is not the longest on the market but adequate for my needs. This is a light cameara and I opted to buy a wrist strap to ensure that I dont drop it. this option of the extra battery is a great idea as you can have one in the camera and one on charge, however the camera doesnt come with a memory card so this addition wasnt just usefull but essential. The camera bag is not the best as its smaller than I thought but it holds my FZ62 with its wrist strap as well as some spare cards and table tripod and I can also fit in my little point and shoot camera for the wife!
Great buy after agonising over which bridge camera to get, this performs well and looks great even though when it arrived the menu was in French along with the paperwork but it comes with an operating menu on a CD and I soon sorted out the language switch, but would have preffered the quick menu in English!!
