Panasonic DC-FZ82EB-K 60x Optical Zoom Lumix Digital Camera £249 @ Amazon

Edited by:"DaftyDuck"Found 26th Oct
Lumix DC FZ82 sold by and dispatched by Amazon. Best price ever by £50 according to Camels X 3.

As bridge cameras go (and I recognise there are those who don't like them as much as SLRs), this is an excellent camera at a superb price.

On old tablet, so please add/alter detail, as difficult to do this end... Maybe I need a new tablet rather than a camera!

Also £50 cashback from Panasonic. promotions.panasonic.co.uk/pro…230

Thanks for the edit.... was struggling!

Apologies for a bit of a hijack, I would appreciate some advice please.

Any suggestions for a top end bridge/super-zoom that has built in GPS? Currently have a totally knackered Sony DSC HX400V and am looking to improve, without going to a DSLR.

With thanks and apologies.

It's probably still the HX400V.
Sony HX90 has GPS but only 30x Zoom

Nikon A900 has 35x Zoom, but no GPS builtin but can use Bluetooth 4.0 to record the GPS data from your phone.

cameras are computers


In the literal sense that they do some computation? Sure. So is my microwave.

Should be in Audiovisual, emphasis on visual. It is in that category already so it just needs removing from computers.

Great deal when you include the £50 cashback

Hence I asked for the post to be edited....my ancient tablet doesn't work on this site, so choice was post it wrong, or not post it! Voting cold because a deal is in the wrong category is simply idiotic!

Yeah true, sorry I was being nitpicky. But yeah I don't put my camera deals in the computer category.

Get the rx10iii

Thanks OP. Just bought this for other half Christmas present. He was asking for a bridge camera with a viewfinder, a good zoom and rechargeable battery. I know nothing about cameras but this seems to fit the bill. Anyone know if differs much to the FZ72?...I was torn between the two

The FZ82 is the new model, an updated version of the FZ72.

Review of the FZ82

I have owned an FZ72 for a few years. Bought mine from the Panasonic outlet for £200. It's an excellent camera, good build quality. It doesn't have the Leica lens of other Panasonic Lumix cameras. One annoying issue is that the viewfinder adjustment wheel to the left of the eyepiece is very easily knocked and you have to re-adjust it each time you use it. The white labels on the buttons have worn off now. The starting focal length of 20mm when you turn it on is very wide angle, and makes buildings look very odd. The extreme zoom at 1200mm is only useful occasionally, and there is some loss of quality. The flash is quite powerful for a built-in flash. Battery life on viewfinder use is excellent, and not bad using the LCD unless you spend a long time reviewing your images on screen. I bought a spare third-party battery, which has been fine and was very cheap. Try setting it to the SCN mode and select 'HDR' for excellent scenic shooting. It also has many other clever electronic modes which I have found do enhance the shot.

Unless you need the extra features offered by an SLR, I can highly recommend this camera at the price.

Bargain with £50 cashback

spruceyb15 m ago

You know the RX10Mk3 doesn't have built in GPS.


And you need that feature that many manufacturers are now starting to omit from their cameras after a fad period why? It’s a battery draining unnecessary feature for the masses

I don't but the comment you replied to specifically states they're after "built in GPS"

Gone up in price but I must say that was some bargain before it did with the cashback.

its not gone up thats a different seller
you can still order from amazon at the price if you use the pane on the right

Great deal, especially with the £50 cash back. I bought the FZ72 3 months ago for £229 from Currys/PC World and at that time that was the best price for the FZ72.

Op - direct link to Amazons £249 model. Notes that there is a 1-2 month delivery lag

Apologies for the time it's taken for me to thank those of you that have offered suggestions. For some reason, even though I subscribed to this thread, HUKD never sent me an email to say that there had been any additional posts on this thread.

To those who offered helpful suggestions - Thank You, you seem to have confirmed my thoughts.

To the person who appears to rubbish built-in GPS as a battery draining gimmick, it costs almost nothing to add at point of manufacture and can be switched off if you can't be bothered to carry spare batteries.

Personally, I am happy to put up with the extra drain by carrying a pocket full of spare batteries. For my needs, GPS in the camera is essential because, when I travel, I will take around 2,500 pictures and, without GPS, I have no sensible or practical way to keep track of where they have been taken. Hooking it up to my phone makes no sense, writing down locations makes no sense, just like your comment!

Price now increased to £279

Can anyone recommend a good quality reasonably priced case to go with this?

Excellent deal. I've got the GX80 but would snap this up otherwise.

Did anyone else order this deal?

Just tried to register for panny cashback but Amazon aren't listed on the retailer list anymore. Confused as I'm sure they were when I ordered and thought Amazon page said the same at the time.
