Lumix DMC-FZ7S Digital Camera - Silver image
 
(based on 3 ratings)
Brand: Panasonic
Located in: Digital Cameras (All)

The FZ7 features a Leica DC Vario-Elmarit Lens with a remarkable 12x optical zoom, equivalent to a 35 to 430mm lens on a 35mm film camera. A film camera with an optical zoom this powerful would be so big and heavy, you couldn''t handle it with one hand. The FZ7, on the other hand, is small, lightweight and easy to handle. It also has Panasonic''s Extended Optical Zoom. While causing minimal deterioration by using the center part of the high-resolution CCD, this function magnifies the image to give you total zoom power of 17.5x, roughly equivalent to a huge 1680mm lens on a 35mm camera.

    Comments about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7S Digital Camera - Silver:

    Traveled from the Sahara Desert in Tunisia with sand blowing/ to Bhutan in the Hymalayan mountains and caught in very windy dust. With only 2 weeks between trips I was unable to send it for cleaning in that short time. Was really pleased that it, and my Panasonic TZ1 used as backup, peformend smoothly and efficiently. It's very reliable, able to shoot holding it in one hand (other hand holding a cane) and stabilizaton worked well

    Comments about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7S Digital Camera - Silver:

    This camera is very easy to use. the rechargable lithium batteries perform very well. The 12x optical zoom with the leica optics yields very impressive results. the memory card that comes with the camera is only 16mb which only allows for 3-4 high end pictures. I bought a 2gb card which will be difficult to fill. It takes a little time to get used to the shooting variables and getting the preferences set, but its a joy to use and has a very user friendly interface.

    Comments about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7S Digital Camera - Silver:

    THis was my third digital camera (2mp, 3.2mp). I love the zoom and the easy menus. The pictures with the image stabilization are great, even from a moving car.
