Panasonic FZ50 - Macro photography|
According to Mark Goldstein: "The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50 dealt extremely well with chromatic aberrations, with limited purple fringing effects appearing only in high contrast situations. Macro performance is above average for an ultra-zoom camera, allowing you to focus as close as 5 cms away from the subject. The built-in flash worked well indoors, with no red-eye and slight under-exposure. Noise at higher ISO speeds is the DMC-FZ50's main weakpoint."

Mark continues: "The DMC-FZ50 is a stylish, very well made camera that will feel instantly familiar to anyone who has used an SLR before, with a full range of automatic and manual exposure controls available. It's a stylish, straight-forward, advanced camera with that 12x Leica zoom lens as its main attraction. On the other hand, the move to a 10 megapixel sensor hasn't done this camera any favours, stopping me from recommending the DMC-FZ50 more strongly. If you're really interested in the massive focal range on offer and you don't want a "proper" DSLR, then the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50 should still find a place on your shopping list, despite that persistent issue of noise."

Mark Goldstein started his very active website PhotographyBLOG in January 2003. At first the one and only purpose was to let this site function as one of those popular web logs with Photography as main topic. But as we all know Photography is a pretty big subject to publish about so Mark decided to focus on some hot key points like mentioning all new introductions, reviews, reports from events like PMA and Photokina, sharing some impressive and creative photos and Mark's sole perspective of his feeling about this fascinating world of Digital Imaging. Mark is based in the UK, but his eagle-eye focuses global.
