Panasonic Lumix FZ82 (1)

Value For Money

The Panasonic Lumix FZ82 is available for around £329, which makes it very good value for money, considering the camera offers 4K video recording. The main competition for the FZ82 is the 50x optical zoom Canon Powershot SX540 HS, and 60x optical zoom Nikon Coolpix B700, with the B700 also offering 4K video.

Panasonic Lumix FZ82 Verdict

The Panasonic Lumix FZ82 offers a lot of camera, for a very reasonable price. With 4K video and a wide-angle (20mm equivalent) 60x optical zoom lens, the camera offers almost everything you could possibly want from an ultra-zoom bridge camera. The camera is easy to use, and the touch-screen makes it easy to change settings. Image quality is good, with the camera producing images with good colour reproduction. For outdoor shooting, as well as a more steady grip, the camera's electronic viewfinder (with an improved resolution), helps here. The only thing that could make this camera better, is the provision of a tilting screen, but if you can live without it, then the Panasonic Lumix FZ82 makes an excellent choice.
