This excellent camera, which is quite similar to the FS7, has a LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens. 4x Optical zoom, optical image stabilisation and rechargeable lithium-ion battery. It produces great pictures which are a bit better than the 12 megapixel compact Lumix cameras. See the Trusted Reviews review linked in the next post.

This is the verdict:

"With the kind of build quality, performance and image quality usually associated with cameras costing twice the price, the Panasonic Lumix FS62 represents possibly the best value for money of any current compact camera. A genuine bargain"

I have the 8mp version of this and picture quality is excellent.
#3
...and is very easy to use.
#4
could someone who knows about cameras tell me if this is better or not as good as the panny lumix FS7 that was posted earlier . i want a decent camera for holiday pictures in bright sunlight and low light /evenings and indoor shots . appreciate any comments .

In terms of picture quality reviews suggest they are very close. There are minor differences in design - the FS7 has a slightly larger screen (2.7 inches vs 2.5 inches). There really is nothing to say one is better than the other. They are both really good.

i dont know a lot but i know there is little to no difference between this and the FS7 - FS7 has a slightly bigger screen (2.5" vs 2.7") and is very slightly quicker between pics.

The FS7 deal is arguably better as you get the 8GB SD card with it which save you having to hunt around to find the cheapest.

If however you wanted a better peace of mind the FS62 is available at ukdigitalcamera's with a 2 year warranty http://www.ukdigitalcameras.co.uk/__4_prod3_asp2_1_i4_55381_126_Panasonic_Lumix_FS62_Black4.html

Another option is the Fujifilm at ebuyer with 5 x optical zoom and wide angle lens @ £92 delivered ??

I really cant decide which is the better option ??

Beware: you cant use 3rd party batteries with these cameras if it has the updated firmware which i presume it will by now, you will have to buy expensive originals if you want extras
#8
Pitty starts only at 33mm. I really want more wide angle with some manual options.

The FS7 has a wide angle 28mm (as to 33mm). I agree with the above about third party batteries. Yes, you can get third party batteries now, albeit they are more expensive than for other makes. What stops Panasonic to change their code again, so you have to use their over-priced batteries? I don't buy Panny any longer and ppl should vote with their feet. But this will never happen :whistling:

BTW, the Leica lens isn't a real Leica lens made by Leitz in Wetzlar. Panasonic just bought the name for photographic lenses from Leitz mounts it on their lenses. But thenppl want to be fooled (and quite frankly deserve it, IMO :)

I think the results speak for themselves. No ones being fooled. These are high quality lenses and it's not just a case of Leica selling the name and letting Panasonic get on with it. There's a certain standard required.

I think this has changed, as some 3rd party batteries are now chipped to ensure compatability with latest firmware on TZ6 & TZ7......haven't tried them myself though!
