The Panasonic DMC-FZ28 straddles the line between compact digital camera and dSLR. While it is a single body/lens unit, the DCM-FZ28 does offer full manual exposure control and a massive zoom range (18x) from moderate wide-angle to telephoto. While it doesn't offer the total range of versatility found with a dSRL and a camera bag full of lenses, it does come close in a much more portable package. With the option to capture images in RAW format (a larger file, unprocessed in-camera) photographers have more post-processing options available to them as well.
