Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 / TZ7 Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 8.40 (out of 10)
Review (Summary): "The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 (also known as the DMC-ZS3 in the USA) is a brand new ultra-compact super-zoom camera, offering several major improvements on its predecessor, the popular TZ5 model. There’s now a 12x, 25-300mm optical zoom lens, both wider and longer than the TZ5's, the megapixel count has increased from 9 to 10, the Venus IV Engine processing engine promises enhanced responsiveness, and the 720p HD video mode is recorded in the new AVCHD Lite format which almost doubles the recording time. ...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 is easy to recommend to anyone looking for a compact, pocketable point-and-shoot camera that takes great photos with the added bonus of HD video. ..."

Review (Summary): "... The DMC-ZS3 takes everything that was great about the TZ5 and improves upon it. You get a wider, more powerful zoom lens, a new image processor, improved face detection, and an HD movie mode. And that's on top of all the other great features that haven't changed, ...

Review (Summary): "Panasonic's Lumix DMC-TZ7 (or ZS3 as it's known in North America) is a 10.1 Megapixel compact with a detailed 3in screen, HD video recording and a 12x optically-stabilized zoom. ...

... Panasonic may no longer have the compact super-zoom market to itself, but the latest Lumix TZ7 / ZS3 remains a highly compelling camera that's likely to sell by the bucket-load. ..."

Review (Summary): "The Panasonic ZS3 has a 10.1-megapixel sensor, a 3-inch LCD, and a 12x zoom that flattens out into a 1.29-inch-thick pocket camera. The Panasonic ZS3 has a surprisingly simple interface, yet offers some depth for those wanting to explore Scene modes and movie making. ...
