Digital Camera Review Test Appareil Photo Numerique Prueba camara digital Digitale Camera Test Dijital Kamera Incelemeleri Digitalkamera Test Digitalkamera DMC-FZ7 review at DigiCamReview : Our friend Joshua Waller from DigiCamReview has published his Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ7 digital camera review. The Panasonic DMC-FZ7 features a 12x optical zoom (equiv. to 36mm - 432mm on a 35mm camera) Leica DC lens and offers 6 Megapixel resolution. The combination of 3 aspherical lenses, the crystallization of Panasonic’s optics technology, generates high optical performance while preserving the compactness of the unit. The zoom ratio can be extended up to 16.5x in the 3 MP recording thanks to the Extra Optical Zoom function with minimal deterioration, by intentionally using the center part of the CCD. The zoom range can be totally extended to 66x when combined with 4x digital zoom.

According to Joshua Waller: "The camera is fairly quick to switch on and take photos, being ready in around two seconds. Focusing seemed fairly quick. The playback mode is also fairly quick. The camera shutter response seemed almost instant when pre-focused (around 0.1 second response), and shot to shot time was quick, with a delay of around 1.5 seconds between shots without flash. The flash recharge time was equally quick, with a delay of around 1.5 seconds between shows."

Panasonic DMC-FZ7 camera - Ergonomics
Joshua continues: "The layout / positioning of the buttons and controls help make this camera easy to use, as the most commonly used features are exactly where they should be, for example the mode dial is where your thumb rests, and the zoom control is where your index finger rests surrounding the shutter release. There seem to be a lot of buttons but this allows easy access to the essential functions and features while you're composing your shot. The buttons feel okay, however the shutter release seems as though it is too low down occasionally making it difficult to press."

Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ7 - Noise and Image quality
"Noise is higher than average at every ISO setting with the Panasonic Lumix FZ7, so it's best sticking with ISO80 or ISO100 for the best results. If you are likely to resize photos for the internet or print small 6"x4" photos then going up to ISO200 may be useful. The high ISO modes, ISO800 and ISO1600 produce noise free images, but detail is so blurred as to make the images look very poor. Purple fringing was slightly higher than average, although nothing too serious. The camera did a good job focusing even in low light thanks to the flash assist. I did not notice vignetting in photos, nor did I notice barrel or pincushion distortion." Want to learn more about the Panasonic Lumix digital camera?
