“Of all the recent "chunky" all-in-one ultrazoom cameras I've tried lately -- and there are many out there -- the Panasonic Lumix FZ50 is among my favorites.”

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50 Review

Highly Recommended (just)
“It is a rewarding and enjoyable photographic tool that - once you've learned its quirks - offers a compact 'all-in-one' solution to anyone wanting a huge zoom range without all that lens changing and all that bulk. Inevitably this involves a certain amount of compromise; the smearing of fine, low contrast detail that is the hallmark of the Venus III engine limits the FZ50 to low ISO settings for any serious photography unless you're happy to accept that you'll never be able to produce big enlargements.”

“The FZ50 is definitely the best designed ultra zoom out there, and it's a real pleasure to use. It's also the largest and most expensive of the bunch -- in fact, it's even bigger and more expensive than some digital SLRs!”
