“... Although both superzooms only delivered sufficient results at high sensitivity levels in the test lab, in practice they delivered satisfactory to good images. But it was a different story when it came to image noise: with the Lumix FZ100 and the WB5500 models it started to increase from ISO 800 onwards. ... There was also slight colour fringing when the zoom on the WB5500 was completely extended. ...”

“Best buy (megazoom)”

“The advantages of the WB5500 are its 16 times zoom, its many set-up options and its RAW function. Its image quality almost reaches the same level as the EX1 at ISO 100, but at ISO 400 it diminishes significantly; but it still gets our megazoom best buy rating.”
