Panasonic DMC-ZS50K First Impressions

"Really great camera."

The initial charge using the Panasonic DMC-ZS50K to charge the battery took about 2 hours. Ergonomics count, especially when you get used to Panasonic's excellent system--wow! This is great because my mother likes the viewfinder and I like the LCD. If you're a casual photographer, you can't beat this price, get it now. Excellent two characteristics in a Outdoor Digital Camera.

Panasonic DMC-ZS50K Final Thoughts

"The viewer works great."

I feel that it takes better pictures than the DSC-HX50. I have yet to use the tripods but I'm excited to give them a try eventually. The different features are amazing and the pics came out really great. Takes great low light & fireworks pictures. Easy to use, great for simple pictures.

"Can't complain!"

Something I never realized I needed till I had it. Lots of new options in Menu to learn. The Fujifilm 's build quality is excellent. Users need to be open-minded and find new ways to use the Fujifilm . Fast or continuous autofocus.

"Went with this."

I wouldn't trade this camera for anything! Prompt delivery and everything in good shape. Wonderful color, clarity and detail. Needed to get it in time to experiment & get used to it. I can't overstate how nice it is to have a one camera solution.

"Still no menu fishing."

But, this fps was rather limited. This really shouldn't stop you from buying this Fujifilm . A shame since the video quality is very good. Higher ISO produces very usable images, even at ISO 12800. I'm also really enjoying the Fujifilm film simulation.

"Well done."

I was able to get some great shots of my dog running full speed. The Fujifilm is an awesome camera as most already know. The availability of the control dials makes a huge difference. That being said I just love to travel and taking pics as a hobby. Camera takes beautiful pictures.

"The good is obvious."

The case was good, and the flash drives are good. Since this is a new camera not all Fujifilm accessories will work. The digital age is here time for RF lenses. So I bought this for my California vacation. I chose to shoot most outdoor shots with an aperture of + or - f/5.

"Fantastic!"

Dynamic range on this camera is also very impressive. I can't overstate how nice it is to have a one camera solution. Even the focus lock button on Fujifilm lenses can be customized. I can't recommend the Fujifilm enough. I use it for vlogging, photoshoots, and pictorials on Instagram.

"Excellent Outdoor Digital Camera!"

Several things keep it from getting 5 stars, however. Especially for astrophotography. A shame since the video quality is very good. Hope this helps you decide on your next Outdoor Digital Camera! Definitely best camera on the mirrorless market.

"I'm a bonehead."

Especially for astrophotography. I have used the camera for some time now. I've added some sample photos taken with this camera and a 50mm f1. Since this is a new camera not all Fujifilm accessories will work. Great battery life, about 300 shots in cold weather.

Definitely best camera on the mirrorless market. The case is great to store the accessories in too. The whole package is well thought out. The Fujifilm is a great light weight mirrorless camera. The case was good, and the flash drives are good.

I'm also really enjoying the Fujifilm film simulation. I can't overstate how nice it is to have a one camera solution. Switching back and forth between photo and video is cumbersome. I've only touched in certain points there's so much more. Dynamic range on this camera is also very impressive.

"For me, a non-issue."

Been using the Fujifilm for about 2 weeks now with no issues. In spite of all the motion on my end, the pictures were sharp. Even with the lens, battery and SD card, it weighs very little. I can't recommend the Fujifilm enough. As an old pro I therefore wanted a second body.
