Panasonic C-3000ZM (Zoom 28) Review – A No Thrill Camera with Brilliant Optics – By Thang Nguyen
At first glance, the Panasonic C-3000ZM (also Zoom 28) might not spark any interest. It’s black, chunky and plasticky just like other typical zoom cameras from the 90’s. However, it’s one of the pioneer compacts that packs a wide 28mm that extends to a good 80mm. The lens has quite a big aperture of f3.2 at its widest focal length, considering it’s a zoom compact. That’s faster than many prime lens points and shoots that often have an aperture of f/3.5.
