Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3 review

 

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5

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

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

Lackluster image quality and poor performance make the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3 a disappointment.

Panasonic DMC LZ3

 

The Panasonic DMC LZ3 is a cheaper option for anyone looking for a bit of extra zoom. It has twice the standard amount offering 6x zoom. It is much less expensive than many cameras with a longer zoom.

Image stabilisation ; Aspect ratios ; Picture quality ; Longer zoom ; Ease of use

Red eye ; Shutter lag ; Small internal memory

The Panasonic DMC LZ3 is a very effective digital camera. It is one of the few digital cameras around offering increased zoom power (6x) at a reasonable price. This camera is very easy to use and also takes good quality photos.

Easy to use ; Rich, saturated colours ; Good macro mode ; Good battery life with rechargable AA batteries ; Optical image stabilisation - works well for low-light or zoom photography ; Fairly compact for a digital camera with a 6x optical zoom lens -...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3 is a decent digital camera - unfortunately little has improved since last years release of the LZ1 and LZ2 - and whilst they were good digital cameras last year - this year they, and the LZ3, are slightly lacking. The LZ5...

It's Been a Love/Hate Relationship with the DMC-LZ3

 

I seem to have very bad luck with digital cameras and it has continued somewhat with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3. My previous camera, which this one replaced because the previous one went dead for virtually no reason, was a Canon Powershot. I bought ...

Easy to use and operate, nice pictures, reasonable battery life

Freezes up" occasionally, questionable reliability
