DIWA AwardsPanasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ7 receives DIWA Gold Award : DIWA (Digital Imaging Websites Association), a world-wide organisation of collaborating websites, has the pleasure of announcing a DIWA Gold Award to the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ7 digital “megazoom” camera. There are many reasons why a “megazoom” camera is a better choice than a D-SLR. One of the key reasons is in fact the LUMIX FZ7. There isn't a reflex camera that comes with a 12x zoom lens as standard, and certainly not with f/2.8-3.3 brightness, nor with world-renowned LEICA quality, built-in optical image stabilizer (MEGA O.I.S) or 5 cm close-ups at wide angle and 1 m at telephoto. To get all these obvious advantages in a D-SLR camera, the lens price alone would be astronomical.
Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ7 receives DIWA Gold AwardPanasonic LUMIX FZ7 - LCD live view
A large 2.5-inch LCD screen with live view is also rare in a D-SLR, making it a handy alternative to the electronic viewfinder. The LCD screen even features a high-angle viewing option. In addition to the lens, the LUMIX FZ7 offers a multitude of other excellent features. Thanks to its powerful Venus Engine II image processor, the camera responds rapidly to any command. When speed is a high priority, the unique and exceptionally useful High-Speed auto focus function proves most convenient, just like instant shutter release and 3 fps consecutive shooting. Furthermore, the FZ7 allows you to shoot VGA video of TV quality.

Panasonic LUMIX FZ7 - Great image quality
With today's believed need for ever increasing image resolution, 6 Megapixel may seem somewhat outdated. The fact is that the number of Megapixels is primarily a measure of image size, not necessarily image quality. The Panasonic FZ7 is a fine proof of this. Supported by an excellent lens and a high quality image sensor, the FZ7 delivers sharp images with natural colour rendition, perfectly tuned for direct printing. In extremely dim light situations, ISO 1600 sensitivity is available, also ensuring faster shutter speeds to support the O.I.S function. Naturally, the FZ7 has virtually the same automatic and manual controls for exposure, white balance etc. as the ones found in D-SLR cameras.

DIWA test results - Versalite digital camera
The test results from the DIWA experts concluded that the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ7 is one of the most versatile cameras ever built, making it a perfect choice for any photographer with varied photographic needs and high ambitions. The verdict left no doubt that the FZ7 is more than qualified for a DIWA Gold Award.
