This review is from: Panasonic Lumix FZ62 Bridge Camera - Black (16.1MP, 24x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD (Camera)
I have been really pleased with this camera although I am still learning some of the functions. The manual can be downloaded from the Panasonic website and I had no problems locating this. You will need it if you want to get the most from the features on this bridge camera.

The camera is easy to use, it is quite intuitive if you are used to using digital cameras. I have always used point and shoot cameras and wanted to upgrade to a bridge camera. This one seemed to offer the best of both worlds. The Intelligent Mode does everything for you but you can adjust the settings in other modes to get the right photo. It has some nice pre-progammed modes such as night portrait and hand-held photos at night, plus a mode for photos through glass. The macro and macro zoom function are great and I found the shots are really clear - you can get close enough to see the texture of the leaves on plants.

I was worried the camera would be bulky and heavy after using compact cameras in the past, but I have not found it to be a problem. There's no case with the camera but it does have a lens cap and strap. The battery is removed for charging. Beware the cable on the charger is very short at less than 2 feet which means it has to rest on the floor when plugged in for charging.

Overall a great camera and a good price on Amazon, especially with the cashback offer too. I would recommend to someone interesting in photography and wanting to upgrade from a compact but not quite fully confident to have an SLR fully manual camera.
