Hi all ! hope you are doing great and everything is great else with you

I'm from Egypt, I want to buy Panasonic Fz-100 , and this after comparing with several other types of the same category like Canon SX30 , NIkoon , fuji film hx 20 and Sony hx100 v ! After watching numerous reports of all these cameras and I think the only one that I think it's worth buying is Fz-100...

. But I want to collect more information about it from from who already bought it

I want to know is it good or not ?! . is it worth buying ? and whether the camera have Panorama mode ?

especially here in Egypt Cams are very expensive! so I do not want to pay anything that does not be useful !!!

price of the camera around here.500 $

Is the video is open? In other words, it depends on the size of memory? Or a certain period ؟

Thanks in advance
I am a new member with you, I hope that we become friends

The FZ40 has better stills but the FZ100 has better video. It does not have a sweep panorama feature. Video is limited in Europe, but not in the USA. No idea about Egypt. Are cams usually limited?

Unlimited.

The models slated for sale in Europe are limited b/c of the import duties.

“Any digital camera that records 30 minutes or more of video is classified by the EU as a camcorder and is therefore subject to 4.9% import duty”

If you get a camera intended for sale in the US or Japan, or another country or continent without this restriction, then the video won't be limited.
