PanasonicPanasonic Lumix DMC FZ7 digital camera review : Early this year Panasonic introduced the successor of the FZ5: the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ7 digital camera. Besides the upgrade from 5 to 6 Megapixels, the Panasonic Lumix FZ7 is equipped with several extra settings. The entire camera has in fact undergone a small facelift. The 1.8 inch monitor, for instance, has been replaced by a large format 2.5 inch display. The avid movie fan will be pleased to see a VGA (640x480 pixels) video and 16:9 function. Improvements have also been made to the housing; which is more streamlined and has somewhat rounder corners. Compared to its predecessor, it is even slightly larger.
Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ7 reviewPanasonic FZ7 - 12x optical zoom
Panasonic DMC FZ7 digital camera is equipped with 6.0 Megapixel CCD and Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens offering 12x optical zoom (equivalent to 36mm to 432mm on a 35mm film camera) with aperture of F2.8 to F3.3. The combination of three 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 Megapixel 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.

Panasonic DMC FZ7 - Venus Engine II image processor
The engine, or the brain, driving high picture quality and quick response of the camera is once again the leading-edge image processing LSI Venus Engine II. It corrects the chromatic aberration that tends to occur at edges especially in telephoto shooting and peripheral vignetting to render a beautiful image in detail. An industry-leading release time lag of 0.008 sec minimum and shutter interval of approx. 0.5 sec minimum, allowing you to precisely capture your target subject. What’s more, consecutive shooting performance boasts the capability of sequential shots at a rate of max. three frames per sec at full resolution. An unlimited consecutive shooting function allows you to take photos in succession until the memory card is full.

Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ7 - Allround digital camera
The compact Panasonic FZ7 has a lot going for it, and should be able to draw in even photographers with high demands by offering a great deal of flexibility. There are plenty of settings that enable the user to unleash his creativity, yet at the same time the camera preserves its low entry-level, which makes it both easy to operate and accessible. Its features ensure the camera can be used for all-round purposes. Thanks to the expansion of its ISO values, (the camera now comes with a highest value of ISO 1600), and the combination with the MEGA O.I.S. (optical image stabiliser), many obstacles can be overcome.

Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ7 review
All in all, enough information to arouse curiosity for the ins and outs of the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ7 digital camera. The camera comes in two colours: black and silver. We preferred the black housing, and have subjected the camera to a considerable share of tests in practice. Just how the camera performed can be read in the following Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 review.
