Thanks Adidas Addict :) The description below has be taken from Amazon ( its £199.99 @ Amazon.)


[SIZE=2][COLOR=indigo]Manufacturer's Description[/COLOR][/SIZE]

The Panasonic Leica DMC-FZ7S 6MP Digital Camera with 12x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom features a Leica DC Vario-Elmarit Lens with a remarkable 12x optical zoom, equivalent to a 35 to 430 millimeter lens on a 35mm film camera. While a film camera with an optical zoom this powerful would be so big and heavy you couldn't handle it with one hand, the digital Panasonic Leica DMC-FZ7K small, lightweight and easy to handle. It also has Panasonic's Extended Optical Zoom feature. While causing minimal deterioration by using the center part of the high-resolution CCD, this function magnifies the image to give you total zoom power of 17.5x -- roughly equivalent to a huge 1680 millimeter lens on a 35mm camera.

The camera also features Panasonic's advanced MEGA Optical Image Stabilizer, which helps eliminate blurry pictures. Jitter from shaky hands is one of the main reasons why cameras produce blurry images. The Panasonic Leica DMC-FZ7K has a built-in gyrosensor that detects any hand movement and relays a signal to a tiny microcomputer inside the camera, which instantly calculates the compensation needed. A linear motor then shifts the Optical Image Stabilizer lens as necessary to guide incoming light from the image straight to the CCD. You won't even notice it working; all you'll see are the outstanding results!

The Panasonic Leica DMC-FZ7K also features a large, 2.5-inch diagonal LCD and a Power LCD function. Simply touch the power LCD button, and the display becomes about 40 percent brighter for easier viewing on sunny days. The camera also has the world's first developed high-angle LCD feature, which makes it easier to check the LCD when you need to hold the camera high over a crowd to take a shot. The large LCD lets you check the focus, frame the shot, and use functions like 25-thumbnail display and calendar view in comfort, with no eye strain. In addition, Panasonic has aligned the electronic viewfinder and LCD along the same line of sight to minimize differences in the images you see when framing shots.

With mega-burst consecutive shooting, you can snap off up to 14 consecutive shots at a swift 3 frames per second in standard mode. The camera also has unlimited consecutive shooting, so you can keep on shooting until the SD memory card is full.
The joystick on the back of the camera gives you quick, easy and accurate manual focusing. You can also use the manual focus assist function, which helps you set a perfect focus by magnifying the center of the LCD image and displaying a bar graph of the focal distance and depth of field. The joystick also makes it easy to manually adjust the exposure and focus. You can set the aperture, shutter speed and focus with your thumb while framing the shot on the LCD monitor. Press and hold down the joystick, and you can also instantly change four key settings -- white balance, ISO sensitivity, image size, and image quality -- while viewing the subject on the monitor. There's no need to switch to the menu screen.


Reviews
New from Panasonic, the DMC-FZ7 is the next step in their high-end, Leica lensed Lumix range. Major advances include the large 2.5 LCD screen and manual focus & zoom rings (not power zoom) so you can have total control if you wish. Not to forget the amazing Mega-Optical Image Stabiliser , a real boon if you are taking shots at the telephoto end of the zoom range.

I work in a school and bought this camera to shoot various activities. The picture quality varies from good to excellent, depending on lighting conditions. What really impresses me about this camera is the video recording quality. The results are superb. I've shot live action footage everywhere from a darkened theatre to the bright outdoors, and have always been blown away by how crisp and sharp the results were.

I have got the FZ50 and its great.

Panasonic have done a great job recently in bringing out high quality digital cameras and if this has the anti-shake on it like mine, THAT will impress you.

GO FOR IT M8

used to be cheaper on ebuyer with GC (146ish) but has gone now.

It is a really nice camera and worth every penny. Its not a bulky as it looks in the photos, the burst shots on it are really impressive, that combined with the amazing zoom make it perfect for sports.

One thing I will say - I've found the simple mode pretty bad - spend a wee while reading the manual - definitely worth it. Or even just flick it between sports and senery mode - seems to work in most situations for me.

My Mum has this camera and it's great and a great alternative to an SLR if you need something compact, lightweight and cheaper!

Im going to hong kong next month and thinking of buying a camera. Is this a better camera then the Fujifilm S6500?

Im a begginer to photography but i want to take lots of pictures while im away. Anyone anyone got other recomendations?
#10
This has got a leica lens which is excellent value. I like the look of the Leica D-lux 3 but its 450 quid . the Panasonic Lumix seem to be the best second choice, lens is all important don't be persuaded by the mutli million mega pixel sticker as if you have a rubbish lens you will end up with millions of blurry pixels.:thumbsup:

Any reviews of this camera? Cant find any...

great cameras - i have the fz5 and I paid lot more than that when it first came out. I've had it for a couple of years and my photography has now progressed to a level where a £500 dslr wont be wasted. Great cameras. Well worth it. Voted Hot

excuse me if my question sounds stupid but iam not an expert. I have a sigma zoom lens (70-210mm) which i used to use with my minolta slr (non digital camera).will this lens fit this camera.
#18
No your not stupid, digital cameras are getting closer to SLR "look alike's" more these days.

No you can't use a sepperate lense with this camera it's a fixed body/Lense.
#19
thank you chromosome 17....does that mean this lens will not fit any digital slr camera?
#20
You can get seperate lenses for the fz7 theres a few on ebay.

You can get seperate lenses for the fz7 theres a few on ebay.

they're not the same as total replacement lenses like you would have on a DSLR - they attach to the end of the fixed lens as a telephoto/wide angle attachment.

The sigma lens might work on dslr cameras depending on the fit, but you might lose the autofocus.

I think the new Sony Alpa DSLR takes Minolta fit lens. It gets great reviews as well. :)
