I loved this camera for the first year. Good picture quality, great zoom, good video, but one month after the warranty expired the camera had a fatal error that requires it to be sent back to the factory for repairs. Not a good solution for Panasonic's...

Fantastic camera when it worked

12 month warranty, died on 13th month

Great first impression


Included book estimates 160 pics with Alkaline. 260 pics with Oxyride. 470 pics with Ni-MH. The DMC-LZ7 model is 10 pics less. Camera come packaged with Panasonic Oxride batteries.

6X optical zoom. Has an E.Zoom function that takes the zoom to 9X, but uses 3MP. It still looks nice and clear. My gf's 8MP camera looks grainy when using the digital zoom

No audio while recording. No AC plug. No viewfinder, just the lcd. To turn on red eye reduction you have to have the flash on auto. The audio is the only thing that bothers me. The other cons are not important really

Verry good Camera


The DMC-LZ6 is better than I hope it to be, It run's a long time on the Rechargeable NI Cad batteries. The camera know's what kind of batterys you put in it. With 2GB SD card you get 500 pictures. Takes real good pictures and the zoom is 24X With E...

Great Camera for the price!!!


I was looking at this or a Cannon and I found this to be a much better option. I couldn't believe the price for a 6x optical zoom and 7.2 mp. Most of the Cannon's that could equal this camera were so much more pricy. I would highly recommend.

A decent camera at a decent price


This camera is fine. Strengths: Price, battery use, some internal memory and nice compatibility with both MAC and PC computers. Weaknesses: View finder always seems a little jiggly. The camera weight or balance is a little off and always feels wrong...

DMC-LZ^ Digital Camera


This has the best optical zoom for the money. Lots of camera settings (ISO and shutter speeds) if you want to get away from the preset setings LCD screen size is listed wrong on this site, but the dealer site had the correct specs.

Powerful zoom Great Price

no viewfinder no microphone, only records silent movies
