Panasonic FZ28 wins’s compact super zoom tests

Written by Gary on January 16th, 2009 has just released results of their group tests for compact digital camera super zoom cameras with zoom ranges 18-20x.

While the Canon SX10 IS (28-560mm range) was joint winner with the Panasonic FZ28 (27-486mm range), the FZ28 was regarded as the camera to take given its smaller size and its HD movie mode, although the Canon has added advantages of having a hot shoe, a better viewfinder, longer range and an articulating LCD screen.

The Olympus SP-565UZ with its 20x zoom was also recommended.

NOTE: the review did not look at the new 25x zooms from Kodak and Olympus.
