PanasonicPanasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 digital camera review : I have said it before: Panasonic are setting the world on fire. Even more so; Panasonic's digital camera assortment is impressive and mature and Panasonic does not yield to the established lot, the renowned photo manufacturer. When we take a look at the assortment there is a choice for everyone, from simple entry level to a stylish design, from compact to advanced Megazoom and even a digital SLR camera recently, that was warmly welcomed worldwide. For this review I chose Panasonic's new Megazoom model; the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ18. This model got introduced in the summer of 2007 and was the result of a few generations of Megazoom cameras. Continue to read our full Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 review!

Panasonic FZ18 - 8.1 Megapixels & 12x Optical zoom
The Panasonic Lumix FZ18 is an 8.1 Megapixel camera equipped with an impressive optical zoom of no less than 18x. Not so long ago this range (28-504mm equivalent of a 35mm camera) would be unthinkable for existing in a compact SLR-like housing. Olympus already showed us that it was possible after which Panasonic followed with the FZ18. The camera is clearly based on the Lumix FZ8 concept, a Megazoom model with 12x optical zoom, but is not considered to be its replacement.

Panasonic DMC-FZ18 - Hand-fit & Mega O.I.S image stabilizer
Taking the camera in my hands, I can feel the ideal hand-fit straight away. The Panasonic Lumix FZ18 has a perfect handgrip and lies just right in my hand. The feeling Panasonic are able to create adds to a great extend to the ease of operating the camera. The FZ18 is a compact camera when we look at how the camera has been equipped but it carries many features from a digital SLR camera. The compact size is not at all a disadvantage regarding the operation of the camera. And in addition Panasonic applied their Mega O.I.S., an optical image stabilizer to support the 18x optical zoom. Mega O.I.S. contributes greatly to cameras with a large focus range.
