Panasonic DC-FZ80K Final Thoughts

"It's range is awesome."

I bought this Panasonic Point & Shoot Digital Camera for a trip I'm taking abroad in February. They make it look like I know what I'm doing. Only downside is recovery after each shot, however rest of features make up for it. The zoom and autofocus makes it easy. But overall It is worth to buy and I totally recommend you to buy this bundle.

"The grip is a bit larger."

10,000 photos with it and it worked well for its limited capabilities. This camera also has the best in camera JPEG processing I've ever seen. I was pretty skeptical buying another point and shoot. I've researched this Panasonic DMC-FZ70K A LOT and I only heard great things. I bought this Panasonic Point & Shoot Digital Camera for a trip I'm taking abroad in February.

Personally, I preferred it to have a wider lens, say 28mm equivalent. After over 10,000 pictures, my Panasonic DMC-FZ200 operates perfectly in every aspect.

"Has a big LCD display."

5 seconds to wait for auto focus is not going to kill me. Its small and very comfortable to hold and use, which is great cuz I have small hands. Every thing was fine except I would have liked a better memory card. I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually. Light, portable and equipped with a good sensor.

"Do use the handstrap!"

Or, you can select all-manual, if you want to set everything yourself. I was honestly surprised that I could find anything like this on Amazon. Lastly, the complaints about battery life are totally valid. This is the perfect compromise camera for me. Overall good camera and value but needs improvements in the hardware.

"Do use the handstrap!"

Color and white balance is generally good. The initial charge using the Panasonic DMC-FZ300K to charge the battery took about 2 hours. The zoom is incredible as well. I’m now wading through the manual before heading out to shoot photos. Manual focus would've been nice.

Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery. The zoom truly is extraordinary! Likewise, don't rule out film. My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. Takes great low light & fireworks pictures.
