Almost exactly a year after the introduction of the DMC-FZ7, Panasonics popular compact super-zoom camera, comes its replacement; the Lumix DMC-FZ8. Where the FZ7 was a fairly major upgrade to the camera that came before it (the FZ5), the FZ8 is, per...

Some areas of performance actually worse than predecessor, Noise is, as usual, a bit of a problem at lower ISO settings, ISO 400+ noise reduction produces color bleeding and loss of low contrast detail, Default noise reduction too high at all ISO settings...
Maybe because my expectations have been lowered, maybe because no one else is doing it any better, I ended up liking the FZ8 more than I expected to. The FZ7 was a significant upgrade to the FZ5 (one of the most popular super zoom models ever), and th...

introduction The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8 is a 7.2 Megapixel super-zoom camera with a 12x stabilised lens. Announced in January 2007, it’s the successor to Panasonic’s earlier Lumix FZ7. The FZ8 represents a subtle upgrade over its predecessor...
12x optical zoom with OIS, Decent quality 2.5in screen, Quick access to settings, Good manual control and RAW mode.
Noise becomes a problem above 200 ISO, Wide angle coverage only 36mm, No flip-out screen, May be too small and light for some.
It’s revealing three-quarters of the cameras we’ve compared the FZ8 against here all cost around 50% more. The simple fact is there’s no real competition for the FZ8 at its price range other than Panasonic’s own Lumix TZ3, which as...
