Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ10 Review

April 7, 2008 | Mark Goldstein | PhotographyBLOG | 3 Comments |

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ10Panasonic have a wide and varied range of digital compact cameras, so it would be easy to overlook the rather unassuming Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ10. That would be a real shame, however, as thie LZ10 has a surprising number of attractive features that make it well-suited to beginners and more experienced photographers alike. 10 megapixels, a 5x, 30-150mm Leica zoom lens, optical image stabilizer and 2.5 inch LCD screen top the specifications list. The new Intelligent Auto mode caters for complete beginners, whilst Aperture-priority, Shutter-priority and full Manual modes will instanly pique the interest of any serious photographer. Best of all, this rare combination of features is available for less than £175 / $225, making the Panasonic LZ10 something of a bargain as well. Mark Goldstein discovered if the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ10 could be one of the sleeper hits of 2008…

There is an 8.1 megapix version of this camera, monikered DMC-LZ8. Anyone had any experience with it. I'm looking to replace a battered fuji f30. It seems to me that more than 8 megs for a compact is self defeating. The f30 had its faults but its sensitive.

I bought one of these largely thanks to this timely review and have been delighted by this wee gem - plenty of functionality in a pocket-sized piece which has allowed me to carry an excellent bit of kit continuously and effortlessly since the day this little baby was delivered. Buy one!
