As an example DigitalCameraInfo.com said this about the FZ-47 color accuracy measurements: "No competitive model comes close to the dead-on accuracy of the FZ47. For that matter, the FZ47 is more accurate than the Nikon D7000, more accurate than the new Nikon D5100, and even more accurate than the Canon EOS 60D, our top rated DSLR!" They also said that the noise levels are a huge improvement over the earlier FZ-35 and much better then either the Canon Powershot SX30 or the Fuji HS10
24x zoom range -- going down to a 35mm - equivalent of 25mm wide angle! Lots of times I've been in a situation where I can't back up far enough to capture the entire scene -- the 25mm wide angle position will really help in such situations.
Resolution and the image stabilizer
The electronic viewfinder (EVF): I wear bifocals, so in addition to LCD's sometimes being hard to see outdoors, I always have to crane my neck to have the LCD in focus -- the EVF eliminates that problem.
The AVC FSH movie resolution & the "zoom" mikes.
The "intelligent" dynamics option -- I have a shot I've tried to take with my 2 previous digital cameras (Nikon Coolpix 2500 & Canon A710is) -- because one side of the scene is brightly lit and the rest is in deep shadow. In the old days in a darkroom I would have dodged & burned, but I haven't found a photo editing tool that can do that. The FZ47, however, with "intelligent" dynamics set to high, handled the scene very well.
The ISO limit set -- it works very well with photos -- you can set the ASA to "auto", but the camera limits itself to ASA values at or below the ISO limit.
The flash range.
The macro function.
The options for manual focus, f stop, & shutter speed, along with the rear dial to adjust these. Together the options work really well. Also, the Focus button really helps when using manual focus.
The AF / AE lock.
The quick menu (though I wish it was user configurable!)
The one user-assigned button.
The separate ISO button.Read more ›
The Good: Very nice lens that will really get out there, very low distortion even on maximum zoom. It's fast for a bridge camera, as fast as some DSLR cameras. It has a full manual mode and it's intuitive, so if you already know how to use a manual camera, it'll only take a few minutes to come up to speed; it also has full manual focus, a welcome addition. Takes HD video. Quality on photos and video is very good. This camera does better than some other bridge cameras at higher ISO settings, although its small sensor still can't compare with a DSLR or EVIL camera. Comes with lens hood, battery pack, charger, neck strap, and lens cap and strap. Accessories including filters, a lens protector, and an additional zoom lens (!) are available for purchase if you need them.
The Bad: not much to report here. The initial setup instructions are omitted from the printed manual, only available with the full manual included on CD. I prefer a camera that takes regular batteries instead of a battery pack, but as the recharge on this is fast -- about two and a half hours -- that's pretty minor. If you are getting one of these cameras for serious use, get a spare battery pack at the same time and you're gold.
The Ugly: really nothing, with the lack of a RAW mode being the only serious complaint, and one that won't be a deal-breaker for most folks buying a bridge camera. Very nice camera with a full set of features. It's physically large--this isn't a pocket camera by any means, and you'll likely want some sort of carrying case for it. If you are brand new to digital cameras, expect some learning curve. If brand new to digital cameras AND wanting to use the manual mode, expect to have to spend some time to get there. However, if you are already familiar with digital cameras, you can be up and going with this one fairly quickly.
