Digital Camera Review Test Appareil Photo Numerique Prueba camara digital Digitale Camera Test Dijital Kamera Incelemeleri Digitalkamera Test Digitalkamera Lumix LZ3 review at DigiCamReview : Our friend Joshua Waller from DigiCamReview has published his Panasonic Lumix LZ3 digital camera. The Panasonic LZ3 incorporates MEGA O.I.S.(Optical Image Stabilizer) and 6x optical zoom (equiv. 37mm to 222mm on 35mm camera) lens, and offers 5 Megapixel resolution. Compared to the previous LZ2/LZ1, the LCD for Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ3 becomes larger to be easy-to-see 2.0 inch. The Panasonic DMC-LZ3 is equipped with an optical 6x zoom that captures subjects located at a distance that cannot be captured enough by the 3x zoom of ordinary compact cameras. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3 incorporate the Venus Engine Plus LSI for high performance image processing in both speed and image quality.
Panasonic Lumix LZ3 review at DigiCamReviewPanasonic LZ3 - Responsiveness
According to Joshua Waller: "The camera is quick to switch on and take photos, being ready in roughly 2 seconds, it then takes roughly a further 0.7 seconds to focus and take the photo. Focusing is quite quick at around 0.5 seconds set to wide angle. Shutter response is almost quite quick at around 0.1 seconds. Shot to shot time is fairly good at around 1.5 - 2.0 seconds (with review switched on), with flash switched on this shot to shot time is around 4 seconds."

Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ3 - Ergonomics
Joshua continues: "There seems to be the right amount of buttons. The buttons feel okay, the shutter release is quite decent. The buttons are labelled fairly well. I thought the camera felt very good ergonomically, and was the correct weight - it seemed lighter than it looked, but not too light. The hand grip seemed good, without making the camera too big or bulky. All of the compartments and covers seem well positioned and are easy to open."

Panasonic Lumix LZ3 camera - Image quality
"Image quality is average to good, the images have good colour (highly saturated), with good contrast and detail, although noise is high and detail is lost when ISO settings are increased. Best results were achieved outside on sunny days, but inside noise was noticeably high. Purple fringing was quite low, and red-eye was not a problem. Exposure was occasionally a problem with some images under-exposed both inside and outside. The camera was generally very competent at focusing thanks to the focus assist lamp. I did not notice vignetting, or barrel or pincushion distortion." You want to learn more about the Panasonic Lumix digital camera? Continue to read the Panasonic Lumix LZ3 review at DigiCamReview!
