Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 First Impressions Digital Camera Review

 

It's not often that we see a whole new video format being introduced on a digital camera, but that's what Panasonic has done with the Lumix DMC-ZS3; as well as being a well specified 10-megapixel still camera, it's the first digital camera to shoot...

We were impressed with our limited experience of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3; it packs a lot of features into a compact size. The standout feature is the new video mode, and this looks extremely promising. Although the video it shoots is not as high a...

Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 digital camera

 

This camera's powerful zoom lens and features are great for casual shooters looking for versatility and oomph.

A zoom range like that isn't very useful if image stabilization doesn't come with it, and the Lumix DMC-ZS3 has top-notch optical stabilization. The camera is downright shake-proof, providing crystal-clear images even when I shook it around at full zoom

Panasonic DMC-ZS3

 

Packs a lot of features into its small case, and has performance to match

Fairly accurate colors; Low noise at low ISOs; Some nice hardware

Soft images at max zoom

The Panasonic Lumix DMC—ZS3 provides a lot of performance for the price: we found that the 10-megapixel images it captured were generally very good, with plenty of detail and accurate color. The same was true of the video it captured, with the 720p...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 is larger than many other point-and-shoot cameras with a wide angle lens and the ability to shoot 720p video. It's being marketed as a "hybrid" camera. Panasonic is hoping that this camera will fill the requirements of both...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 / TZ7

 

After a camping trip in December of 2009 with some friends I once again found myself regretting leaving my SLR at home. Although my Casio was nice and small, had lots of modes along with manual setting I was doing better with my iPhone than with it...

Leica lens ; 25-300 mm zoom ; Size ; iA mode ; Video has it's own button on the back

Only thing I have found is the dial can sometimes move off the mode setting when taking it out of my pocket or case

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 / TZ7

 

Best pocket superzoom camera for getting the picture that requires the long zoom. Also does very well with macro closeups. Videos are outstanding - clean and clear with little or no camera noise, excellent sound, and real stereo! Battery life is also...
