Panasonic DMC LZ7

 

The Panasonic DMC LZ7 offers twice the standard amount of zoom for only a little more money than a fairly basic digital camera. It is easy to use and takes a decent, if not perfect, picture.

Ease of use - indoor photos - LCD display quality

Recycle times - noise apparent in a number of photos
