PanasonicPanasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera Review : The successor of the Lumix TZ1, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3, was introduced in January of the year 2007. Did the Panasonic TZ1 impress us with its compact size and onboard 10x Leica zoom lens; the Panasonic Lumix TZ3 digital camera even exceeds its predecessor. The resolution went up to 7 Megapixels and even more important, the focal range, although staying the same with its 10x optical zoom, gained a wide angle. As a result, this compactcamera has a fine 28-280mm range, absolutely a good achievement. It means that Panasonic is one of few manufacturers to deliver a digital compact camera with an optical zoom lens that is able to offer wide angle.

Secure Digital High Capacity
Panasonic, being one of the first to use the Secure Digital memory card and the latest SD platform SDHC of course uses this small storage card to enhance the Panasonic TZ3's internal memory. And you will have to, because the internal memory offers a moderate 13MB storage capacity. It is, to be blunt; a rather useless capacity for only a handful of images can be stored here in the highest quality.

Panasonic TZ3 Memory card slot
But then, Panasonic is not the only manufacturer that tries to get away with this; almost the whole compact camera line in the camera industry offers this small amount of internal memory. Therefore of course the Panasonic Lumix TZ3 contains a card slot offering support to Secure Digital and SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) memory cards. The first card offers maximum storage capacity of 2GB and the SDHC version currently offers up to 8GB but will enhance to 32GB.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 is one of the interesting cameras with which Panasonic distinguish themselves thanks to the specifications. On paper these specifications look very promising. Time to find out how they turn out in practice. Besides the standard review, Karin Brussaard, our underwater photography specialist took the Panasonic TZ3 underwater for testing. That review will be published soon. First the Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ3 review.
