One Minute Review: Lumix DMC-FZ300

 

Panasonic delivers a fixed lens camera than feels like a DSLR.

Panasonic excels at making fixed-lens cameras that feel like full DSLRs, and the FZ300 is the perfect bridge camera.

Panasonic FZ300 digital camera review - compact shooter with super zoom

 

Is it possible to find a camera that can do it all? Does such a beast exist? If it does, it would need to start with a simple rule: that it has an optical zoom sufficiently versatile to cover every shooting situation you are likely to want to capture....

I couldn’t find anything else of concern while the FZ300 was in my hands. It covered a tremendous range of subjects with its zoom range, even managing well at macro range. And on top of all that, its ISO performance up to ISO 3200 is the best I’ve yet...
