Panasonic fz48

Although priced competitively at around £320 and sporting some excellent features, the Panasonic DMC-FZ48 falls short of many of its peers in one important area.

For a camera with a long telephoto zoom such as this, performance at high ISO sensitivities is important, as a lens with an angle of view still requires higher shutter speeds to achieve sharp images - even with image stabilisation.

We liked

A well-designed, well-built camera with an impressive 24x zoom lens and great range of features.

We disliked

Image quality issues at high sensitivities, especially when compared to the latest competition.
