PanasonicPanasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 review : In the beginning of 2007, Panasonic invited the world press to come and admire their new range of digital cameras in Paris. The new series of Lumix cameras includes the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8. This new model succeeds the popular Lumix FZ7 and is Panasonic's newest Mega zoom digital camera. From the outside, the Panasonic Lumix FZ8 is pretty similar to its predecessor. The real changes have taken place inside the camera. The most striking difference is the upgrade from 6 to 7 Megapixels and the option for recording favorite moments in both JPEG and RAW format.

The Panasonic Lumix FZ8 is a compactly made Megazoom camera with enough setting options to delight even experienced creative photographers. Compared to its predecessor, the FZ7, the main improvements and innovations in the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 have been made to the interior. There is the increase in resolution, a new Venus III processor, the same format 2.5-inch screen but with a higher resolution, a larger electronic viewfinder with a higher resolution, RAW and JPEG support, SDHC flash memory card support, some extra pre-programmed modes including an ISO 3200 option and an internal memory of 27MB.

Panasonic Lumix FZ8 - 12x Optical zoom
The Lumix DMC-FZ8 is equipped with a 7.2 megapixel CCD and a Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens offering a powerful 12x optical zoom (equivalent to 36mm to 432mm on a 35mm film camera) with an aperture of F2.8 to F3.3. If this wasn’t enough, in 3-megapixel resolution mode, the Extra Optical Zoom function uses the centre part of the CCD to provide additional magnification, extending the zoom power to an impressive 18x. Using this feature in combination with the 4x digital zoom brings the total zooming power to a remarkable 72x. The combination of 11 elements in eight groups, including 3 aspherical lenses generates superior optical performance while maintaining the compactness of the unit.

Panasonic FZ8 - Venus Engine III image processor
Heir to the award winning DMC-FZ7, the DMC-FZ8 has enhanced the excellence of its predecessor not only with the total number of pixels but also with several other innovative technical improvements. A key improvement is the inclusion of Panasonic’s advanced image-processing LSI, Venus Engine III that can record at a sensitivity setting as high as ISO 1250 with full resolution. Noise reduction is also greatly improved, with picture noise removed in stages during image processing. Critical noise is analysed, and chromatic and luminance noise are reduced separately. The chromatic noise, which has greater effect on picture quality, is then selectively suppressed, resulting in clearer images.

Panasonic Lumix FZ8 Megazoom camera review
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 Meg zoom digital camera is now available world wide, so it's high time to subject this model to an extensive practical test. The camera is available in two colours: black and silver. We chose the black casing and put the camera through its paces.
