Steve's DigicamsPanasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 review at Steves Digicams : Our good friends at Steves Digicams have published their review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 digital camera. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 features a 8 Megapixel CCD, 12x optical zoom (equivalent to 35mm to 420mm on a 35mm film camera), and the MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer). The combination of 3 aspherical lenses and 1 ED lens generates high optical performance preserves the compactness of the unit. For the brain of the camera, high-speed high-quality image processing LSI Venus Engine II is incorporated to render clear images in detail. The free-angle LCD is angle-adjustable to support comfortable shooting even in high- and low-angle shooting positions.

According to Steve Sanders: "The lens is controlled manually with the zoom ring right on the lens barrel. We love this feature and wonder why Panasonic did not introduce it on earlier models. It operates smoothly thought its range and allows for very precise zooming. We also saw above average amounts of chromatic aberration (purple fringing around highlights) in high-contrast areas, however this is still a common issue with Super-zoom models, and it is very unlikely you will see it in your typical 4x6-inch to 8x10-inch prints."

Panasonic DMC-FZ30 - Steves Digicams review conclusion
Steve continues: "Shooting performance was very impressive. Power up to first image captured measured just 1.3 seconds. The DMC-FZ30's image quality was very good when using its 8M Fine mode. Both our scenic and portrait shots were sharp with good overall exposure and colour balance. Its white balance system was very accurate when using its Auto setting in a variety of different lighting conditions. Overall the noise levels do increase as the ISO sensitivity is raised, just like you see on almost any camera, with ISO 400 being the worst. Its AF system did very well in almost any lighting condition, thanks mostly to the AF-assist lamp. You want to learn more about the Panasonic Lumix digital camera?
