DigiCamReview.co.ukPanasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 review at DigiCamReview : Our friend Joshua Waller from DigiCamReview has published his Panasonic Lumix FZ30 digital camera review. The Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ30 includes an 8 Megapixel high resolution CCD and a newly developed Leica DC VARIO-ELMARIT 12x optical zoom (equivalent to 35mm to 420mm with a 35mm film camera) lens. The newly incorporated Extra Optical Zoom extends the zoom ratio by using the center part of the high resolution CCD, to achieve 15.3x for 5-Megapixel and 19.1x for 3-Megapixel images with minimal deterioration. The DIWA Gold awarded Panasonic FZ30 features MEGA O.I.S.(Optical Image Stabilizer), Every slight hand-shake movement is detected accurately and compensated.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30 review at DigiCamReviewPanasonic FZ30 - Responsiveness
According to Joshua Waller: "The camera is very quick to switch on and take photos, being ready in around one second. Focusing seemed fairly quick even in low-light thanks to the bright focus-assist lamp. The playback mode is also fairly quick. The camera shutter response seemed quick (0.1 seconds) when pre-focused - and shot to shot time was quick, with a delay of around 2 seconds between shots without flash. The flash recharge time was quite quick. The cameras menu's seemed quick."

Panasonic Lumix FZ30 - Operation and Design
Joshua continues: "The buttons are fairly easy to use, and they are in a good position. There seem to be the right amount of buttons and dials allowing easy access to the most commonly used functions and features. The buttons feel okay, although some may find them small. The shutter release is quite decent. The buttons are labelled fairly well - although the scrolling wheels can be confusing in playback mode - I expect with extended use I would have become used to this. I thought the camera felt very good ergonomically, with an excellent size rubbery handgrip, the rubberised cover will appeal to many, as will the SLR-styling and black colour."

Panasonic DMC FZ30 - Noise and Macro
"Noise is visible in photos taken at ISO80 and ISO100, however noise isn't a problem as these ISO settings and images are still good. At ISO200 and ISO400 noise levels are high / very high - these ISO settings are best avoided if image quality is your highest priority. The macro mode is very good - colour and detail is good, and there apears to be fairly low noise at ISO100 (although quite high noise when I used ISO200 for the same photo). The camera allows you to get very close to the subject. Images did seem a bit soft - and may benefit from sharpening. Custom white balance helps acheive better results," concludes Joshua Waller.
