Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ1 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ1 is a stylish and slim compact camera sporting a 10x optical zoom that starts from 25mm, 720p HD video recording in MP4 format, 16.1 megapixel resolution and high speed response for faster autofocus. As part of the 2012...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ1 camera

 

The Lumix DMC-SZ1 is a decent, but uninspiring compact camera from Panasonic

Compact ; Easy to use ; 10x zoom

Noticeable blurring at the edges ; Didn't always handle exposure correctly

The Lumix DMC-SZ1 is a small camera with a big lens that's easy to carry around for everyday use. However, its image quality isn't great, with some noticeable blurring and occasional mishandling of exposures.
