This Camera is just a fun machine. It is loaded with tons of fearutes of which I liked the most are iA mode, face detection, Ultrazoom lense (18x at 10MP and the lense power can be increased by adjusting to different picture resolutions *excellent feature*) and the video shooting mode.
DMC-FZ28 is powered with the newly developed Venus Engine IV that supports a faster response time enabling the camera to shoot and reload quickly for the next shot. (Cannot expect the responsiveness of a DSLR though..)
The Video capabilities are just amazing, accept for the length of the clip that restricts it to 2GB in HD mode. (that's acceptable for a P&S camera).Another interesting feature in this camera is that you can zoom in and out while shooting a video clip.
The still picture quality degrages at higher ISO settings but it still holds good amount details at reduced picture size.
Panasonic has tried their best to pack as many fearures as possible for a P&S into this model. But the camera lacks the outer feel. The buttons gets a cheap feel compared to the other competitors like Nikon P80, Sony H50 and the Canons. But if you just care for quality photos and ignore the aesthetic aspects this camera is definitely a best buy.
Although I am not an expert in cameras or its technicalities, but photography is my hobby and I found this camera just the right thing to choose off the lot.
