I have a Canon 30D and a 10D plus a few thousand pounds worth of lenses no complaints there. But wanted something to carry on days out with the Family, I also have a FZ28 which I will never get rid of it is an absolutely amazing piece of kit. Using it on the Raw setting the quality of the pictures is amazing, why oh why did Panasonic lift the FZ100 camera to 14mp and change the sensor.
People who praise the FZ 100 amaze me. I have never made a comment on anything I have ever bought but felt I had to say something about a camera that is my biggest ever disappointment, as I have already stated the FZ 28 gives far superior picture quality.
I have been a keen photographer for forty years and I am often accused of being too fussy about the quality of Photographs I consider to be of a reasonable standard so these are just my views.
Eventually I was tempted to upgrade again and the new niche market they call 'Bridge' cameras with huge zoom lenses seemed to fit my own requirements. I began the usual comparison search. The short list came to Fuji HS20, Nikon P500,Sony HX100V, Olympus SZ-30MR and Panasonic DMC FZ100.
The FZ100 just fitted my own criteria better, and so far has proved to be extremely competent at all the usual tasks required of this kind of tool. I won't review its performance here as there are many reviews by experts posted on line where they have been able to try all the models in tests against each other. Many of those reviewers were impressed by the FZ100, recommending it as a good all rounder, and I would agree with them.
It is a good compromise for someone wanting an excellent point and shoot camera but also giving the operator full control manually if their technical experience was up to that, or where the circumstances demanded that control.
Lack of a manual in the box is annoying and led to a somewhat frustrating trial and error search through the menu to set the various parameters for my own requirements. The CD is there of course, but viewing on the PC isn't satisfactory, and who wants to print off a huge loose leaf manual with the price of printing ink exceeding gold dust.
To summarise, I have found the FZ100 to be a very competent camera. It has exceeded my expectations, which in this day and age is itself a refreshing surprise.
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.
