Panasonic Lumix FZ47

The Panasonic Lumix FZ47 is a new superzoom camera, touting a 24x optical zoom lens (similar to the existing Lumix FZ40).  The FZ47 packs a 12.1MP CCD image sensor that also captures 1080/60i and 720/60p AVCHD video.  Rounding out the typical specs are a 3-inch 460k-dot resolution LCD, a 201k-dot res EVF and a sensitivity range of ISO 100-6400 (although manual ISO settings are limited to ISO 100-1600).

Notably, the FZ47 allows users to manually adjust aperture and shutter speed when shooting video; however, Panasonic did not detail as to whether or not full exposure controls in video mode may be set manually.

In addition to the new video features, the FZ47 adds the ability to capture 2MP 3D photos.  Does anyone use this feature on recent 3D-capable cameras?

The Panasonic FZ47 should be available in August for around $400.  Check availability on

The power of manually control aperture of video record is a good idea,but i still like the older sister Fz35 for its smaller size.
