Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72 review

£399.00 Typical price

Test score %

Reviewed

Do you want to get closer to the action? With its massive 60x optical zoom, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72 can take you there. It's a feature-packed bridge camera with a zoom that kicks sand in the face of other so-called superzooms, and effective image stabilisation means you can use the full zoom range. But is bigger always better, or do its rivals have it licked on picture quality?
