The FZ3 was the first digital camera I bought, coming from Nikons, Leica and H'blad. I chose it primarily for the lense size and picture quality against all the others comparable in 2005. It is reasonably rugged, v reliable and I have since bought 3 more.
The FZ8 is just another I have added to a line of dependable light-weight digitals. The video is useful to document well-lighted rehearsals and even makes a passable YouTube offering, if used w/a tripod. I'd like a H'blad with a digital back but until then, this does just fine - it's only about the results obtainable not the specs. The GH1 is pretty good, too. I'll be sticking with Panasonic as long as the lenses remain HQ and the build-quality stays robust.
It had been a long time since my last camera so I asked a professional photographer his opinion. This series of Panosonic Point and Shoot with Leica optics was his recommendation for me. I'm happy to report that this is a wonderful camera that is large enough to hold on to and also has a viewfinder! Hard to beat Panosonic electronics coupled to Leica lenses!!!
The Lumix DMC-FZ8 is an absolutely wonderful camera for a beginner, such as myself. This camera has most of the attributes of a true SLR camera, but still retains the ease of operation of a point-and-shoot. The picture quality is outstanding, and after a little practice one can take studio-quality pictures with relative ease. I would recommend this camera to anyone who is upgrading from a point-and-shoot or just starting to experience the art of photography.
The Lumix series cameras are an upscale version of photographic science, just under the digital SLR cameras (DSLR), I have found. The Leica lenses in the FZ series are fantastic, and as good as the DSLR versions, which is what we all want, don't we? A fantastic value for the Buck at the mid-range of camera values.
Some reviewers don't like some things about Lumix CCDs, but I've found the FZ series superior, especially for the amount of money spent. I've owned and used at least 5 Lumix cameras in the last 3 years, and have loved them all. Never had a problem. They are solid, some are even made of metal, which is rarely found in lower-cost cameras.
The one thing I would admit is, I do not usually make photo-quality prints, so I do not know how these cameras perform that way. But the quality I see on my monitor (HD and very large) is GREAT. Be advised: These cameras are worth the money, and the premium is not much over lesser models and other brands.
THIS PANASONIC DMC-FZ8 IS BY FAR MY FAVORITE CAMERA OF ALL TIME!! IT HAS A PROFESSIONAL LEICA LENS, IS LIGHTWEIGHT, USES A LITHIUM BATTERY--AND BEST OF ALL, TAKES CLEAR, CRISP PICTURES AND VIDEOS!!! IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A FABULOUS CAMERA--AT BARGAIN PRICES--BUY A PANASONIC DMC-FZ8....BELIEVE ME, YOU'LL LOVE IT!!!
