Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ38EB-K Digital Camera Review

Posted on Jul 9 2010 - 11:56am by Richard Sharp

So, you want a modern digital camera but you don’t want one of those pretty little pink things which weigh about 2 ounces and are as thin as a digestive biscuit which has been cut in half and then trodden on? What you want is a camera which looks like a camera, right? Let’s take a look at the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ38EB Digital Camera then.

Design

This camera is black, solid and study. It looks like it was built in the days when a camera was a camera, a bag of fish and chips cost 3d and we had a chance of winning the World Cup. It’s almost enough to make tears of nostalgia well up.

Notable Specifications

This model has 12.1 megapixels, 18x optical zoom and Panasonic’s optical image stabilisation system. It has an extremely quick start up time of 1.2 seconds and Intelligent Auto Mode with Face Recognition. You can also shoot 720p HD videos.

 

Value

Does just a little over £200 sound fair? I think so. Take a little stroll down Internet Street and you will find just what you are looking for.

Summary

It may look like an old fashioned camera but the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ38EB-K Digital Camera has more hi tech elements in its insides than many more modern looking machines. This is a really good combination of classic styling, sensible features and ease of use. Anyone could pick this one up and start taking good pictures, but it also leaves you room to grow and learn how to use the other available functions.
