PhotographyBlog has recently posted a review of the Panasonic DMC-FZ7, a 6.0 Megapixel SLR-like digital camera with 12x optical zoom (36=432mm equivalent) lens with image stabilisation and a 2.5″ LCD Screen.
“There aren’t too many weak-points in terms of the DMC-FZ7′s design and build-quality – for once the battery compartment and SD card slot are both very well implemented, and even the tripod mount is metal and located in the middle of the camera body. The only aspects of the design that slightly disappoint are the mode dial, which doesn’t have a very positive click action and is easily moved to the wrong setting when stored in a bag, and the cover for the AV Out / DC In compartment, which on my review sample didn’t quite close properly. In all other respects the DMC-F7 is one of the better-made cameras that I’ve reviewed.”
