Top Customer Reviews
This is a 2010 camera. At the time of writing it's now the end of 2012 and things have moved on. The FZ100 is a great camera and a lot of fun to use, but it's comprehensively out-performed by the FZ150 and the new FZ200. The rest of this review contains useful information, but should be read for interest, not as buying advice.
The FZ100 is an excellent enthusiast's camera, but it is not a point and shoot camera. If you leave it on the admittedly very clever "Intelligent Auto" you will not get the best from it. If you prefer a camera you can leave on "auto" and not have to spend time and effort learning how to use it, save some money and buy the FZ45. Panasonic Lumix FZ45 14.1MP Digital Camera - Black (3.0 inch TFT LCD Display, LEICA DC Lens with 25mm Wide-angle and 24x Optical Zoom) You are paying a premium for a high level of creative control with the FZ100 and you'll need to spend time to get to know it. Anyway, here's my thoughts on the good and bad points about it.
* It has a fabulous 3" articulated 460,000 pixel screen. This makes manual focussing is a cinch, especially as it implements a snap-zoom to the central portion of the screen when using manual focus. This is the first digital camera I've had (and this is my 7th) where manual focussing is quick, easy and reliable. Low res. screens flatter to deceive and it's great to be able to quickly see if a picture is really sharp. The articulation is something that I'm surprised more cameras don't have.Read more ›
I had only used a small panasonic pocket camera before.
I don't really understand all the technical aspects of taking a photo, ie. iso/aperature etc, so i left it on the intelligent mode.
Ive just come back and going through the pictures/movies , im so impressed with the results.
To exercise the cheetahs they use a rag tied to a pully system. I got some great burst mode shots - the zoom was quick enough to change as the cheetahs flew by.
But for me, the best bit is watching the movies on my home cinema projector - its so clear.
I would highly recommend this camera for anyone like me, happy just to point and shoot.
It so simple to use - want to take a movie instead of a picture - just press the record button - want to use burst mode - press the burst mode button !
The only downside for me is the software provided with the camera. I use a mac laptop for everything and a pc for just gaming - but some of the software will only work on a pc.
When it came to printing the photos, they were perfect when using the mac, but when using the supplied software on the pc, they came out dark and the colours were dull.
I did make sure the pc had the latest print drivers. So if your going to print on a pc, might be best to use another photo software package.
Other than that I found the camera easy to handle and I look forward to using the other programme modes. Considering the LEICA version is another £300+ more, I am happy to have made the purchase through Amazon of the Luminex FZ100.
