Panasonic LZ5 - Design & Optical zoom|
According to Steve Digicams: "One of its most appealing features has to be the Lumix DC-VARIO 6x optical zoom lens. The 37mm wide-angle provides a field of view sufficient for most indoor group portraits and outdoor landscape shots. While its 222mm telephoto extreme enables you to bring distant subjects much closer than the competition, and lets not forget about the MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) system. Shooting performance was very good for a camera in this class."
Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ5 camera - Steves Digicams review conclusion
Steve continues: "Like we saw on past models, the FZ5's image quality was average for a 6-megapixel consumer model. We captured all of our samples using the 6M Fine (best) mode, and it produces relatively good results in a variety of situations. Our outdoors test shots showed good exposure and color balance, but there was noticeable edge blurring on a large amount of the shots. Noise levels are average when shooting with an ISO of 100 or lower, becoming much more noticeable at 200 and 400. Although we had some issues with image quality, the LZ5 did well at capturing our portraits. Our outdoors shots were well exposed and showed very natural skin tones."
