"I purchased this camera over 5 yrs ago. Love this camera. When my two kids borrowed it they liked it so well they had me purchase one for each of them. The cameras are light weight, good zoom features with image stabilization, good battery life, clear photos, quick on ready to shoot, good low light shooting. I would recommend this camera to anyone wanting to shoot long distance sports or wildlife scenes...." Read Full Review

"I love my Lumix FZ35, but Panasonic is a very poor company for customer service or support. The camera is set to capture AVCHD format videos, but Panasonic does not have software included with the camera to use those videos. You are pretty much stuck with just viewing the videos on your computer. None of the software supplied will convert or edit those AVCHD videos. If you buy the camera, make sure you change th..."

"I purchased this camera over 5 yrs ago. Love this camera. When my two kids borrowed it they liked it so well they had me purchase one for each of them.

I would recommend this camera to anyone wanting to shoot long distance sports or wildlife scenes."
"I ordered and picked up the FZ35(my first Panny camera) in Washington state. Then we went to Vegas. Without the chance of practicing, I shot P, A and many different scene modes. The night scene/portrait results are great. FZ35 is also more compact/lighter than the Canon Sony equivalent. It's much smaller than I expected. 2 kinds of video output. MOV and MTS. Both are good enough at 1280x720. You can use free FormatFactory to edit MTS. You sure can zoom while filming. Sound isn't bad.It generates a tiny bit of noise even at ISO100 if the picture is underexposed. The low ISO noise can be removed easily with Lightroom. And there's no advanced manual in the box. Only in CD or online PDF. There's basic manual in the box though.You have to press and hold about one second to get the top buttons respond. I guess it's to prevent from touching them accidentally.FZ35 is packed with a lot more functions and options than my Sony A300 dSLR was(and probably all the entry level DSLRs). Its 2.33 fps continuous shooting speed is limited to 3 shots only. With my Patriot Class10 SDHC card, there's almost no waiting time after 3 shots. i.e. The camera is ready right after taking 3 continuous shots.[...] Better price than its competition at the time of my purchase."
"I bought this after testing and having two different cannon's fail on me. Even though this camera is a bit bulky I throw it in my purse, in the car, in my backpack. I keep it with me all the time. I like taking photos of flowers at the Botanic gardens and the only negative I found was typical of digital camera's the focus on white colors can pop, but this camera has a focus lock and so if you use it you can avoid that a little. Action pictures of humming birds are incredible when using a tripod. I would have liked a bit bigger view finder but at least it has one!! Love the soft focus in portrait mode."
"This camera felt very comfortable from the first time I picked it up. Controls were all in the right places and were easily maneuvered almost immediately. The camera's heft felt good and solid, but without the size of an SLR. The close up shots have been amazing. As with any ultra zoom point and shoot, light availability is a necessity when utilizing the 18x optical zoom to its full extent. But, with that said and with enough light available, the images are clear and sharp. With the ability to use the manual settings, the camera is extremely versatile in most situations. Also, the iAuto feature takes all the work and planning out of capturing a fabulous photo. I have been more than happy with this camera."
"I researched cameras for about two months. I did not want a p&s camera I wanted the versatility of a DLSR without the cumbersome lens and cost. The camera has so many settings it has been fun to learn the uses. I have had the camera only 8 months and already taken about 5,000 pictures. The zoom lens allows me to get close to animals, great macro shots too. Image stability is very good even at full zoom. I have always wanted to get into photography.
I am proud to show friends and family the pictures I have taken. I still take some bad pictures but that is my fault - they are good lucking bad pictures. This camera has given me a new hobby."
"After wearing out my first 2 Kodak Digital Cameras, I shopped and spent weeks reading reviews, studying every option and angle for the new Super Zoom's. Since I have gotten used to my new Panasonic FZ35 I'm convinced that there is no better Super Zoom Point & Shoot on the market. My professional Photographer friend agrees and highly praises my photos. Especially the ones I get paid for while shooting Road Racing & Moto Cross. This is the only camera offered that offered everything. I preferred AA batteries, but the proprietary batteries work great. I don't use the HD because of the complexities and compatibility issues with editing software, but the Hi Res Video in .mov format is awesome. With a separate video button, it doesn't interfere with my still or action shots. I no longer have to tote a video camera and a digi camera, this one does it all. I purchased this instead of an SLR and have never looked back."
"I researched many reviews of every other super zoom on the market. None of those reviews could top those of the this camera. Now I see why. I've had the camera for about a month and have taken about 600 pics and half a dozen videos. I previously owned a DMC-FZ5 and thought it was a very good camera. The DMC-FZ35 surpasses it in every detail. I am totally pleased with my choice. One precaution-- AVCHD videos play well in camera and when camera is connected to a TV. They will not play on a computer when downloaded unless a media player is added. I'm using VLC -it's free- and it plays them well and even gives some simple editing functions."
"The best thing about this camera is the ease with which really sharp images can be captured. This is a simple camera (to allow you to concentrate upon taking photos) which routinely produces stellar images, (especially outdoors) Greatly enhances enjoyment of the hobby of photography ( (for me anyway) when one is not struggling to figure out the intracacies of a particular camera when the moment to photograph strikes."
"A great compromise between a full size SLR and a pocket camera. There is no need for a variety of lenses, because this Leica lens goes from wide angle to a great telephoto, as well as macro. It is light enough to take on a bicycle ride, yet gives big SLR performance. The HD movie quality is excellent. It has exceeded my expectations."
"I spend a lot of time outdoors with a camera. The Z35 Lumix is really a nice unit. So far I have been putting it through the ringer using the preset features and perverting the manual settings. The Leica lens is very sharp. The flash is most impressive for a flip up light. Cold weather performance has been good. The battery life is great for all the features that drain it. I look at all the sub compact 12 mega pixel units ,and I can say I am still happy I got this one! I would buy it again in a second!"

Corrective power for visibly clearer zooming.
Hybrid still/motion images with POWER O.I.S. and an 18x optical zoom
AVCHD Lite Beautiful HD movies, extended shooting time
The FZ35 records HD movies with 1280 x 720-pixel resolution. It uses the AVCHD Lite format (MPEG-4/H.264) to achieve higher image quality while storing less data than the conventional Motion JPEG. Plus, the FZ35 is equipped with an HDMI output terminal for direct transmission of digital image and sound signals. Just connect the camera to an HDTV using a single HDMI mini cable (optional) for fast and easy slideshow enjoyment.
High-speed response for truly intuitive shooting
Enjoy high-speed 1.2-second start-ups, AF speeds of approximately 0.3 second, and up to five consecutive shots at 2.3 frames per second with full resolution. You can also take up to 470 photos with a single battery charge (CIPA). This comfortable level of performance lets you capture even the most fleeting shutter chances.
Wide-angle 27mm LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens and 18x optical zoom
The bright F2.8 LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens ranges from 27mm wide-angle all the way to 486mm telephoto. Combined with the double* corrective power of the improved POWER O.I.S., this makes it possible to capture subjects clearly without hand-shaking, even in the telephoto range.
My Color mode puts you in control of the color
In this mode, you can freely adjust the color, brightness and saturation parameters. This makes it easier and more fun to create interesting, expressive images. Adjust the settings that best suit the shooting conditions and your expressive intent, and then enjoy your own photography.
