Panasonic Lumix DC-ZS200/TZ200 Review

 

Panasonic's premium compact DC-ZS200 (TZ200 outside of North America) boasts a 24-360mm equiv. F3.3-6.4 zoom lens, making it the longest reaching 1"-type pocket camera on the market. There are tradeoffs that come with that big lens, however. Find out...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS10

 

The 16X-optical-zoom Panasonic Lumix ZS10 is the touchscreen-equipped successor to last year's Lumix DMC-ZS8. The sum of the DMC-ZS10's parts is a fast-focusing, versatile pocket megazoom with high marks for zoom range, scene modes, 3D still shooting,...

In-camera HDR and high-speed movie modes ; Touch-to-focus controls ; 3D still shooting ; 16X optical zoom lens with very fast autofocus ; Manual modes with aperture- and shutter-priority

Limited touchscreen functionality ; GPS feature lacks in-camera mapping ; No RAW shooting mode ; Images often look underexposed and lack sharpness ; Battery life is poor with GPS active

The long-zoom, GPS-enabled Lumix ZS10 is a nice compact camera for travelers, but it suffers from indifferent image quality and mediocre battery life.

Leica V-LUX 30 Review

 

The V-LUX 30 is Leica's latest travel-zoom camera, featuring a 16x, 24-384mm lens, built-in GPS geo-tagging, 3D Photo Mode and a touchscreen LCD. Successor to the V-LUX 20 model, VLUX 30 has a new 14.1 megapixel MOS sensor which enables full 1080i HD...

With an asking price of £550 Leica might be in trouble if its camera was a mass-market consumer device like the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ20, with which it shares much - in fact almost everything but name. But it's not, so it won't be; arguably Leica is...

Leica V-LUX 30 Review

 

Based on the popular Panasonic Lumix ZS10, the pocket-friendly Leica V-LUX 30 couples a 1/2.33-inch type, 14.1 effective megapixel, RGB-filtered MOS image sensor, and a Leica DC Vario-Elmar branded 16x optical zoom lens. In 35mm equivalents, the V-LUX...

Power comes from a proprietary BP-DC7 lithium-ion battery that is rated for 260 shots on a charge to CIPA testing standards. The generous software bundle includes Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 for still editing and Adobe Premiere Elements 9 for movies.

Panasonic DMC-ZS10

 

The pocket-friendly body of the Panasonic ZS10 couples a 14.1-megapixel MOS image sensor to a Leica DC Vario-Elmar branded 16x optical zoom lens. The Panasonic ZS10's lens is equivalent to a 24-384mm. When recording movies, a stronger focal length crop...

Flash: Our manufacturer-specified testing (shown at right) showed fairly bright results even though the reported distance of 16.4 feet takes the camera out of the main lab area. (Though the DMC-ZS10 raised ISO to 640, causing more blurring.) The...
