PanasonicPanasonic TZ3 Underwater review : I have the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 at my disposal for the weekend. Often people don't only go scuba diving when they go on holiday or a weekend away but they combine scuba diving with other activities. At times like that it is very convenient to have a camera at hand that serves both purposes. The underwater photography requires a camera that is not too large so it can easily be taken along. Besides that wide angle is an advantage in underwater shooting, because a wide angle lens lets you shoot close to the subject. This means less water in between the camera and the object and thus less dirt and more colour in the pictures.

Panasonic TZ3 Underwater review

Panasonic Lumix TZ3 digital camera
The Panasonic TZ3 with 7.2 million pixels is such a camera. This camera is also called a Traveler Zoom camera. The Lumix TZ3 features 10x optical zoom and offers a 28mm wide angle. Often cameras with large zoom ranges such as the one on the Lumix TZ3 are also of a large size but Panasonic succeeded in keeping the camera quite small. Therefore it is a perfect camera for underwater shooting. And the good thing about the 28mm wide angle is that you don't have to carry along a wide angle lens in your usually already overweight luggage.

Panasonic DMW-MCTZ3 underwater housing
The underwater housing, the DMW-MCTZ3 has been made of polycarbonate and is waterproof up to a depth of 40 meters. Nearly all the functions can be operated underwater. The camera slides into the underwater housing with ease and opening the housing is also effortless. Even when there is pressure on the housing you don't have to force anything. The underwater housing is identical to that of the DMC-TZ2, which makes swapping from the TZ2 to the TZ3 very easy. And as mentioned before, the camera offers a 28-280 zoom range.

When we came back from a dive, a nice surprise was waiting for us on the dike. It gave us the perfect opportunity to test the camera outside of the water as well. Are you curious about this Panasonic digital camera in combination with the DMW-MCTZ3 underwater housing? Read our underwater review about the Panasonic TZ3!
