This mode gives you a wider range of expressive possibilities to explore in your movie making.Enjoy high-speed 1.2-second start-ups, AF speeds of approximately 0.3 second, and up to five consecutive shots at 2.3 frames per second with full resolution.

Useful 27mm wide-angle zoom; excellent image stabilization; full selection of manual and automatic exposure controls; very good 720p movie capture with operational zoom and manual controls; relatively fast.
Noise and compression artifacts in JPEG photos; no hotshoe.
A better-than-average megazoom choice, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 delivers standout video capabilities and an excellent manual feature set. Still, it suffers from a lot of the same drawbacks as its competitors, including weak photo quality.

I've had my FZ35 for 2 1/2 months. There's very little to dislike about this camera for the price and considering its competition. I like to use the viewfinder to compose pictures . . . it's a hangover from my film SLR days. The viewfinder on the FZ35 is a bit too small, but I can live with it. The "diopter adjustment dial," a teenie-weenie wheel next to the viewfinder that allows you to adjust the viewfinder focus to suit your eyes, is also too small. For those who primarily use the generously large LCD monitor to compose (most people), this is not a factor. Aside from that, this camera has an incredible array of options in its software for automatically shooting any type of photo you can imagine, including some creative choices in a few categories or you can go completely manual. The info displayed on the LCD or in the viewfinder can also be adjusted to lots or very little (keep it simple). I've done quite a few macro photos and am very pleased. The lithium-ion battery is a blessing after years of cursing AAs. Be sure that your purchase includes an extra battery as well as an 8GB memory card to supplement the internal, built-in memory and a USB compatible card reader. This is a good back-up to the download cord and is slightly faster than the cord. Btw, the softcopy owners' manual is comprehensive and well written. In summary, Panasonic did their homework when developing this camera. Buy it for no more than $400 and you'll be satisfied.
I purchased the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35 digital camera on a whim -- not quite expecting the superior quality that I received for the $125 (including shipping) purchase price.
Though the camera is an older model, I am extremely pleased with it and its functions, as the device suits my needs.
The camera is not lightweight because it is quality construction built to last.
It takes fantastic photos, even at the maximum zoom of 18x. Only drawback I've discovered thus far -- the focus is a bit slow when shooting at maximum zoom. But with all the other awesome and user-friendly settings, this can easily become a non-issue once you become familiar with the camera!
I would definetely recommend this camera to anyone who is looking for a digital camera that goes beyond the lastest "point and shoot" devices yet comes very close to a professional camera.
It's easy to use and comes with outstanding software for semi-professional editing. Great device even for the novice photographer.
I LOVE IT!!!!
This camera, was purchased to replace an older, Digital SLR camera that I had, because it weighed a TON. If I was out on an expedition, that called for my "big camera", (and not my little purse camera), I would be worn out, from trying to carry it, around all day.
Then, this camera, was brought to my attention, at a concert, (it takes great video too! EVEN in the dark!). I am, MORE than impressed. There are a few things, (that I wanted), to purchase, to make the "kit" complete. Things like lens filters, and a different attachment for sun blockage. I also purchased an extra battery, and a portable car charge, to make sure that I have a charged battery whenever I am out.
As far as using the camera, there are, quite a few, "Smart modes", to choose from too. Neat little things like, when taking pictures of your pet, you can actually enter two different NAMES for the pet, and it remembers the pet, for the next time. There is the same thing for children too! VERY COOL!
I have yet, to get to ALL of the great things, that this camera is capable of, but it is not very complicated at all. You can also choose to enter, manual settings, and use it like a "professional".
All in all----this was a GREAT choice, for a mid range Digital SLR. AND, at 12 mega pixels, I won't be needing to replace this camera, for a LONG time. There are also, TONS of accessories, that you can purchase to enhance this great little item too! *** Let me stress, that other than the lens filter, ( having on a clear lens protector will keep the lens in perfect shape), you DO NOT need to buy any extras, to make this camera, work like a charm!!***
OVERALL- I could not be happier! I highly suggest looking into the Panasonic DMC-FZ35!!
I bought the panasonic lumix dmc fz35 about two weeks ago and was glad with the number of funtions available on this great deal camera. It has a 12.1 megapixel camera, HD video camera, and able to optical zoom 18x. The camera's size is smaller than a typical dslr and lighter to carry around and the battery has a pretty good lifespan. My only complaint is that the viewfinder is small. Overall, I'd recommend the phone if you're on a budget.
I bought the Lumix DMC-FZ35 to replace another camera (different make and model) a few short weeks ago. I wanted a camera to take photos of fun group outings and to catalog my antique collection, but I haven't tested it in some of the rigorous environments yet. Since most of the smart phone technology has high mega-pixel levels already, and I didn't intend for intense photography, I wanted a higher-than smart phone, but less than super-expensive varieties. This camera hit the spot. it's fairly easy to use and takes great photos - portraits as well as sports/action photos. I bought this camera refurbished, and it didn't come with paper instructions, but it was relatively easy to figure out. The "photo playback" menu could be easier to locate and manage, but it's not a deal-breaker.
Overall, a good, sturdy camera so far.
