Panasonic DMC-LZ3 Reviews

Panasonic DMC-LZ3 Reviews DigiCam Review has posted a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3 review, where they write: “The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3 is a decent digital camera – unfortunately little has improved since last years release of the LZ1 and LZ2 – and whilst they were good digital cameras last year – this year they, and the LZ3, are slightly lacking. The LZ5 with a bigger screen and sound recorded on video appears a much more rounded digital camera. The LZ3 seems to have taken a step backwards in regards to image quality, with noticeably high noise, and the occasional under exposed image. The camera has optical image stabilisation which helps in low light or when using the optical zoom. The camera is very easy to use (in auto mode), and would definitely suit a beginner. The camera offers good battery life, with good controls and good build quality. If you aren’t interested in sound on videos, then the LZ3 is definitely good value for money for a compact ultra zoom, however if image quality is a priority then it would be worth looking elsewhere.”

CNET has posted a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3 review, they gave the digital camera 6.4 out of 10 and write: “The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3 sits at the bottom of Panasonic’s line of midrange, 6X-zoom point-and-shoot cameras; its 5-megapixel resolution and smaller screen are all that separate it from its more expensive 6-megapixel sibling, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5. Both incorporate the same 37mm-to-222mm (35mm-equivalent) Leica lens, optical image stabilization, and numerous ways to control image capture. The DMC-LZ3 fares moderately well in bright environments, but poor performance and average photo quality lessen the allure of this attractively priced model.”

Steves Digicams has reviewed the Panasonic DMC-LZ3 digital camera and write: “The image quality was average. Outdoors it captured the best images in my opinion, with our samples being relatively sharp, well exposed and showing good colour saturation. Like the LZ5, noise levels were average when shooting with an ISO of 100 or lower, becoming much more noticeable at 200 and 400. By looking at our ambient light sample of the M&M man, you can see what I mean. While this may not be an issue with those who use the “Normal” exposure mode and can select the desired ISO speed, those who use Simple mode will have to hope the camera is using the lowest setting possible. However, on a better note, these signs of noise can only be seen by the untrained eye when viewing images at 100%; something your typical consumer does not do. And it is very unlikely that you’ll see much in your 4×6 or 8×10-inch prints, as long as there isn’t much cropping.”
