Panasonic Lumix FZ48,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ48EB-K Hybrid Super Zoom Digital Camera (12.1MP, 24x Optical Zoom) 3.0 inch LCD (Electronics)I bought the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ48 to upgrade from a Canon PowerShot A75 compact digital camera that I have used both personally and in my business for a number of years. I used to use 35mm SLR cameras as a hobby photographer and this is the best replacement that I could find within my budget that I set at a maximum of £300. This will give me the next learning step I need to be creative with my shots and be using up to date photographs for my websites and family home and holiday photographs.
So far the results are looking really good. The camera is light and compact. (May be too compact for someone with large hands / fingers) It seems to have all the features that I need at the moment as it will take me a while to get used to them all. The pictures so far have come out really well using the auto focus even when zooming in to flowers and a bird on our feeder through the kitchen window. I bought a spare battery, Samsonite carry bag, screen protectors and a fast 16Gb card to start me off. It will be great to see how well it performs over the Summer for landscape scenes, close up plant and flower shots as well as on holiday with the family. I'm a keen amateur photographer and I see this as a good way to move to a current format. It's been easy to connect to my window 7 PC and to download the pictures although the connection cable could do with being a bit longer. Overall I'm very pleased with the camera so far.

Better than connecting your camera to your computer, why not just read the SD card instead. Just one word of warning though, never format your SD card on the computer always do this in the camera.
