PanasonicPanasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 review : Panasonic are clearly hard at work to assert their presence in the digital camera market. Lumix is starting to become a familiar name to many consumers, a fact that is more than welcomed by Panasonic, who know how to put this brand awareness to clever use. The Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ5 is the latest model in the LZ-series. With 6 Megapixels and a 6x optical zoom combined with an optical image stabiliser, the consumer is offered a truly full-fledged digital camera. The Panasonic Lumix LZ5, which became available several months ago, comes in a silver and a black edition. We've been able to test the Panasonic DMC LZ5 in practise for a while. Our experiences can be read in the following Panasonic DMC LZ5 review.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 reviewPanasonic Lumix LZ5 - MEGA O.I.S
Handshake and the movement of the subject, both the major causes of the blurred picture, are compensated with MEGA O.I.S. and High Sensitivity Mode to help you to take clear pictures in various situations. The Panasonic DMC-LZ5 is equipped with a 6x optical zoom that captures and magnifies subjects located at a distance that cannot be captured enough by the 3x zoom of ordinary compact cameras. Even this zooming capability is supported by MEGA O.I.S. allowing users to take clear, sharp images, coupled with the High Sensitivity Mode that works against the movement of subject.

Panasonic DMC LZ5 - 2.5 inch LCD display
Compared to the previous LZ2/LZ1 digital cameras, the Panasonic DMC LZ5 adopts a large and bright 2.5 inch LCD display. Thanks to the new pixel-mixed readout method performed at CCD, the sensitivity is greatly increased to offer brightness on the live image displayed on LCD, allowing the user to shoot in low-lit situations. The High Angle LCD function, which is the first application to the digital camera LCD, makes the display extremely easy to view from bottom angle, for example, when taking photos raising a hand upward to shoot the subject over the crowd. This option can be set instantly by the independent button. The large LCD allows the display of images even in tiny thumbnail size. Playback of 9, 16 and 25 is possible on a multi-split screen in addition to the normal 1 frame playback. This helps you to search for the image you want out of a number of images stored on the SD Memory Card, even if the images are in bulk.

Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ5 - Optical image stabiliser
The optical image stabiliser of the Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ5 adds a significant surplus value to the camera. The presence of such a system could in fact prove to be the very difference between saving an image for the future, or instantly removing it via the digital recycle bin. The results are displayed on the camera's 2.5 inch format screen. This shows Panasonic are easily keeping up with the competition. The absence of an optical viewfinder is generally banished from thought entirely by the presence of a high quality monitor. The practice tests should prove whether we will end up missing the optical viewfinder.

Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ5 review
The camera's compact size and light weight are ideal for the consumer to whom ease and convenience are of prime importance. It has in fact not been long since a compact sized camera could not be combined with a 6x optical zoom lens, which meant that one had to settle for a large housing. We preferred the black housing, and put the Panasonic LZ5 camera down to some serious work. Whether or not we found the Panasonic Lumix LZ5 to our liking in practice can be read in the following Panasonic Lumix LZ5 review.
