Panasonic Lumix FZ50

I always wanted to own an advanced digital camera. I have been thinking for a while and I have been annoying some of my friends (Chris, Sailesh and Amir) who are really good at photography. Finally I decided to purchase Panasonic Lumix FZ50 (goldcoster’s Lumix review helped me make a decision too). I ordered the camera couple of days back and now I have it in my hands! I’m more excited to try it out, so wait for more detailed review!

Lumix FZ50

With new camera coming in I’m planning to start a photo blog of my own. Now I’m looking for better platform for photo blogging. I’m currently trying to setup WordPress + Flickr photo blog. If you have any better suggestion for the photo blogging platform, please suggest me.

BTW, now I’m a proud owner of Lumix camera!

If you like this post, buy me a coffee.

  1. ha ha ha…. for once, annoyance was a pleasure 😀

  2. thanks for the mention. I am sure you will be happy with the camera.
    I will think about a good photoblog platform and post about it.


  3. I have to thank you 😉 I guess I won’t be reluctant later for getting this camera. I’m waiting for you post! Even a good photolog theme for WordPress would be great help.

  5. Wow, so we can expect a photo blog and great photos in next few weeks.

  6. The camera looks good …. waiting to see some first pics of it …

  7. Christelle – Oh, was it.. I hope I will continue 🙂

    ram – Oh, yea..! you surely can buddy!

    Mridul – thank you. Sure.. but have to wait for a while till I set up my photoblog!

  8. ben how much FZ50 cost ?

  9. rahul – I got it for 430$ guess not a good deal though;-) btw, happy to see you around.!

  10. Cool….looks great
    Do start a fotoblog dude…
    waiting for your fresh pics

  11. Barath – Sure you will… setting up separate fotoblog would take a little time tough. Till then I would keep posting few images here.!

  12. Just clicked ‘I like it’ and reviewed on StumbleUpon. Hope it brings you traffic.

  13. Awesome Benedict! And take it from someone who knows, you made the right choice by going with the Lumix DMC-FZ50. Leica lenses are definitely the cream of the crop. 🙂

    And you’re really gong to like how the lens hood prevents glare and lens flare. Btw, did you get black or silver?

    Can’t wait to see some of your pics!

    Shine on,

  14. Aaron Cook – Yes, you’re correct. I didn’t rethink about my decision! lens hood are great… I got the black one.. I love black 🙂 Sure.. you will see more pics soon… Stay tuned..~

  15. Problem with FZ50, For no reason, Locks up with message, Digital Chip Error, Check your inserted chip, Cannot unlock, tried others, same problem, transfer chip to another camera and it works fine.

    I have had a 50 for a month or so and am delighted with it.

    Am looking for a flashgun and I’m told the Olympus FL series fits the 50 perfectly. Anyone had experience of this please?

  17. Garry Raffaele

    Ooooops. The Olympus flashes don’t work. I bought a Panasonic flash Lumix DMW FL360. Works well.

  18. Have had my Lumix now for more than 6 months. Only problem I can see is noise when you go beyond 400ASA (please excuse the old measure).

  19. Al Stillman – I guess that is more specific problem with your camera. hope it is not a general complaint.

    Garry Raffaele – I didn’t have any problem with Flash. I had a old Vivitar flash and it worked seamlessly. I agree with the noise before 400 ISO levels.

  20. Al
    If you’re talking about the noise problem, fraid it’s general. Every review I’ve read has been critical of noise in the upper reaches.
