When I look at my Operating Instructions booklet, I found that there are 2 different model numbers for the FZ-30, DMC-FZ30GC and DMC-FZ30SG.
What is the difference between the 2?

Good question! Mine says DMC-FZ30PP ? May have something to do with when and where it was manufactured. Jim

My FZ30 is designated DMC-FZ30EB-K and is the UK model. The online manual I downloaded from Panasonic is DMC-FZ30EB. I believe all FZ30s are manufactured by Matsushita in Japan.

Well, that had me rushing for my instruction manual. Mine says FZ30PL. There's no reference to different model numbers in the manual, so perhaps it is where the camera was manufactured. Anybody else shed any light on this? I'm intrigued now!

Where did you read your model number? The only model number I found is on the bottom of the camera. It only reads DMC-FZ30.

I found 2 of them on the cover of my manual.
And found the rest of them from an online store that sell parts for Panasonic Camera.
