Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50

Digital photocamera with additional battery, SD Card(4GB), charger, transfer cable and cordura holster Built like a tank.

The market for this camera is quite clearly the male prosumer who takes photography seriously. The Panasonic FZ50 is built like a tank and picking up and aiming with it is a lot like looking down the barrel of a gun.
