At 42nd Street Photo, we always try to offer the best possible price on digital equipment, but more importantly, we try to offer the best brands for the price your paying. It definitely helps when the manufacturer makes a fantastic product for a good price, and this is most certainly the case with the Lumix DMC-FZ28k from Panasonic.
While Panasonic is is no stranger to quality and affordability, the Lumix DMC-Fz28k packs a little extra for the money you’ll spend on it. Everyone knows that Canon makes a fine digital camera, but many have hailed the Lumix as the better buy over it’s direct Canon competitor, the SX10 IS. It is said to be faster, lighter, brighter, and on top of that, it shoots movies in HD, while its Canon counterpart does not.
In the DSLR world, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28k has it where it counts, and doesn’t add any fluff. Compared to its predecessor, the FZ18, it offers 10.1 megapixels, versus the FZ18′s 8.1 mp. The HD movie capture is an improvement, as well as its wide angle capabilities, zoom range and quality.
While many might view the upgrade from the 18 to the 28k a natural progression, we view it simply as building on something that already exceeded our expectations.
