  • The Panasonic Lumix FZ47 packages a terrific zoom lens with a sensor of sufficient resolution in a compact dSLR design that puts all the controls that matter right at your finger tips. It's a pleasure to use, a delight to explore and about as much fun ...

  • Abstract:  The Super Zoom digital camera market is one of the most fearsome battlegrounds in the photography world. Super Zoom cameras represent any fixed-lens compact camera that boasts a long optical zoom. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ47 has a 24x optical zoom lens, ...

  • It's been a while since I've reviewed a Panasonic super zoom camera, but Panasonic hasn't lost their touch: the Lumix DMC-FZ47 offers a lot of camera for just under $400. Some of the "big" features include a "giant" 24X, 25 - 600 mm lens, optical imag...

  • The Lumix DMC-FZ47 is an exceptional camera and a major victory for Panasonic. Running this model’s color accuracy test was the sort of event where the entire team had to drop what they were doing and see the results for themselves, the score was simp...

  • Clearly, this versatile feature set is great to have and the Lumix FZ47 has a reasonable amount of external controls to use these efficiently. The true downside of this digital camera is sub-par image quality which limits the usable ISO range to a maxium ...

  • Comfortable and easy to use, Good lens range and quality, Good video quality
  • Small viewfinder and low-resolution LCD, High recommended retail price, No RAW image capture
  • The Panasonic LUMIX FZ47 is the little brother of the top-of-the-line FZ150, and it sacrifices a range of features like the FZ150’s Live MOS sensor and accessory hot-shoe to cut the price slightly. It’s still too expensive -- although street prices are...

  • Intelligent auto, full PASM control, Colours are good, Good video quality, External microphone captures good detail,
  • No external microphone input, hotshoe, progressive HD video recording, Low-resolution screen, Very small electronic viewfinder, Cannot shoot in RAW, CCD sensor results in image degradation,
  • The FZ47 doesn't do anything particularly amazing to warrant its hefty asking price. It takes good photos and video, but, for a little extra cash, we'd highly recommend upgrading to the FZ150 instead....
