Steve's DigicamsSome months ago Panasonic launched a camera with remarkable features but not the features we would be too excited about. However the reactions from the readers all over the world were quite positive and the introduction of the Panasonic DMC-FZ10 became very successful in terms of publicity! This new model is the world's first 4 Megapixel camera with a 12x optical zoom. Okay, 12x is more than we have seen with competitors like Kodak and Olympus, but the interesting thing is that the entire zoom range has an f2.8 brightness! The optical range is equivalent to a 35-420mm zoom lens on a 35mm camera. The camera features a 1/2.5" CCD and F2.8 large-aperture Leica DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens with 13 elements in 8 groups and three aspherical lenses.
Steve's Digicams: Review of the Panasonic DMC-FZ10Beside the brightness and the great optical zoom range the Panasonic DMC-FZ10 features Panasonic's advanced MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer). This feature uses motion sensors, which detects even slight hand movement and integrally links the lens control to the motion of the camera to reduce jitter. Unlike digital image stabilization systems, this optical system provides precise compensation with no degradation of image quality. When taking handheld shots, especially telephoto shots or in low light, there is always some movement and a feature like the MEGA O.I.S will be welcomed by all of us.

Our good friend Steve has had the opportunity to test this new Panasonic camera. According to Steve:" While the FZ10 will continue to appeal to the beginner with its easy-to-use automatic exposure mode, Panasonic has addressed the needs of the intermediate and advanced users with flexible exposure modes and advanced features.", "I was pleased with the FZ10's results outdoors. The power of the 12x zoom lens gets you close to the action, allowing well-composed shots even across the width of a soccer field. The autofocus system and lens produced consistently sharp results, although there's some loss of sharpness at the edge of the image."
