Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5

 

The 6-megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 doesn't clearly distinguish itself.

6X optical zoom, higher than most compacts. Image stabilization. Excellent resolution.

Substandard performance and noticeable shutter lag. Images a bit noisy.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 review

 

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3

Optical image stabilization; long-range, relatively fast lens; lots of handy features.

Mediocre performance; cheap build quality; some problems with image quality.

Poor low-light performance hinders the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5's useful features.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 Digital Camera - Full Review - The Imaging Resource!

 

Panasonic's Lumix DMC-LZ5 falls near the bottom of the Lumix line, providing an affordable option to snapshot photographers who want a useful selection of automatic settings in a compact camera. Its 6-megapixel resolution and optically stabilized 6x...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 ($279) is a midsize point-and-shoot camera with two standout features. The first is its lens; where most cameras in this class have 3X or 4X lenses, the LZ5's is 6X. The second feature is one found on all of Panasonic's...
