Panasonic Digital Cameras

Within the Panasonic range of digital cameras you will find a variety of models. The range kicks off with simple point and shoot cameras before working its way up to digital SLR level.

Features to look out for include a number of compact digital cameras with wide angle lenses. You will also find a lot of cameras come equipped with image stabilisation. Many also have a special LCD mode. This gives you a good view of the screen if you are holding the camera above eye level to take a shot over a crowd. I also find their LCD screens are normally bright and clear.
