Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5Here are the sample photos from my upcoming review of the new 6 megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5, a couple of days before the full review is online. The Panasonic LZ5 is a fairly compact digital camera with a long 6x optical zoom lens equivalent to 37mm to 222mm on a 35mm film camera, optical image stabilzer and and a 2.5 inch LCD screen. I’ve also included the sample movie. Enjoy…

The files look rather nice for a camera in its class IMHO (withouth checking Exifs and such).

The sensor seems to pick up a lot of fine details, although on screen the jpegs seem a bit oversharpened, which leaves shadowy bits a bit blodgy...looking forward to the review

I'm suprised how bad that lens is. Very soft corners and lots of fringing

Thanks for useful materials. Could you place several high ISO images? ISO 800, 1600 will be interesting.

Sadly I can''t do that Denk, not because I'm mean or anything, but because the ISO speed only goes up to ISO 400 :)

Reading the specifications on the official web site, DMC-LZ5 has a "High Sensitivity Mode: 800 - 1,600" at lower resolution. I really want to samples taken in this mode.

Thanks for the photos Mark.

Don't mean to complain, but I gueass I am really. :)

In all the shots you post with your revies there are never any portrait or group shots, in fact very few people at all.
As I mainly shoot this type of photo I am very interested to see the skin tones and low light, cafe or bar, type exposures.

Also very few high intensity color shots.

The shots you post are great, it's just that they seem to all cover similar shooting situations.

Would it be possible to broaden the scope of the shoots posted?

Well, I guess the test shots reflect the kind of photography that I like, plus I don't live near enough to family members to be able to get them to pose! I will endeavour in future to try and include more people photos.
