Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Review - PC Magazine

Apr 14, 2005 | Category: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 is geared toward several different skill levels. Easy mode provides access to just the most basic functions of the camera. For shooters who want to tailor their pictures a bit, Panasonic includes scene modes like sports, night portrait, fireworks, party, and snow, among others. For more advanced users, the FZ5 offers a manual mode, which lets you set the aperture and shutter speed for more creativity and control.

In real-world testing, we found a couple of problems. To start with, the electronic viewfinder is very grainy, which may mean that you’ll miss subtle details when framing your subjects this way. As for the LCD, it certainly does an adequate job of being clear and visible in daylight, though we wish it swiveled out for more shooting flexibility.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 Review -

Apr 12, 2005 | Category: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5 is a mid-range camera that has been the source of much interest since it was announced, as it is one of the few cameras that have an image stabilized 12X zoom, and a 5 megapixel resolution. Engineered from the DMC-FZ3, the DMC-FZ5 retains the same general appearance as the FZ3, but has some minor modifications to some of the the external controls. As with the FZ3, the DMC-FZ5 has a tough plastic body, and is available in either a black or a silver finish, but the grip of the FZ5 has a more generous rubber-covered area than its predecessor.
