Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ50 Review

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50 Megazoom camera
The Panasonic Lumix FZ50 camera is already Panasonic's fourth FZ10-series Megazoom camera, the FZ40 never existed. It has to be said the step from FZ20 to the FZ30 was quite a leap indeed. The step to the Lumix FZ50 isn't quite as large, yet every bit as remarkable. This isn't just related to the higher resolution of 10 Megapixels. The ten Megapixel resolution is in fact a "logical" upgrade of the segment high resolution compact cameras. As far as efficiency is concerned, however, the resolution boost doesn't really add that much. The increased resolution results in the fact that the pixels on the sensor have even become smaller, which certainly affects the quality of the pixel itself. Consequently, Panasonic have had to resort to severe measures to fight negative effects such as noise. The increase is in fact marginal, which means you will not be able to make a sudden leap forward in print size.
