SOLD Panasonic Lumix FZ 28 "Bridge" Camera

Not open for further replies.


I have bought myself a DSLR so i have this FZ28 Lumix up for sale.

I've had this for 2 years and it's produced faultless (to my eyes!) photos every time i've used it.

Here's the technical bumpf;

Detailed item information

Product Information
The Lumix DMC-FZ28 digital still camera features a 27mm wide-angle Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens with an 18x optical zoom. Joining Panasonic's popular FZ series of cameras that pack a high-powered zoom into a compact body, the FZ28 also boasts 10.1-megapixel resolution and adds a number of enhanced features that boost user fun and convenience, represented by an advanced iA (intelligent Auto) mode.The super-powerful 18x zoom lens makes it easy to pull in subjects from far away or to take dramatic close-ups. For an added boost, zoom power can be increased to 32.1x with the extra optical zoom function. The 27mm wide-angle feature is ideal for both broad landscapes and tight indoor shots, letting photographers capture a wider view. The 10.1-megapixel resolution allows photos to be greatly enlarged while still retaining outstanding detail, or edited by trimming and enlarging parts of the photo to print.For image processing, the FZ28 features the high-speed, high-performance, Venus Engine IV. Thanks to the Venus IV, the FZ28 can snap off consecutive shots at a fast maximum 13 frames per second for subjects with fast motion in high speed burst shooting mode. In high sensitivity mode, the FZ28 can capture stunning photos with sensitivity up to ISO 6400 in extremely low light situations. The engine allows the FZ28 to shoot up to 460 photos (CIPA) on a single battery charge thanks to improvements in power efficiency.The FZ28 features a large, 2.7-inch intelligent LCD with 230,000-dot resolution. Clearly visible in virtually all conditions, this advanced LCD gives the user a clear, detailed look at the shot being composed and plays back crisp, clear images after shooting. The viewfinder resolution has also been increased to 201,600 dots for easier viewing.The FZ28 offers a number of other functions that expand photographic possibilities, including a stronger flash for long-distance lighting and extended use, a color temperature display that makes it easier to set the white balance more accurately, a color bracket function, and new scene modes - pin hole and film grain - that create film-camera-like effects. Image leveling and other new functions add convenience after shooting as well.

The only fault with this is a couple of marks on the rear screen but other than that it's "as new" it comes with everything in the picture plus all the original manuals etc.

I'm asking £110 inc. delivery which makes this a very cheap high quality camera.
