Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ5 digital camera

 

Panasonic has been working hard to build market share and its Lumix compacts are becoming very accomplished pieces of photo gear indeed. As I write Panasonic has even announced a new digital SLR so the company is not resting on its laurels.

Image stabilisation, great 2.5-inch screen, easy to use, good battery life, comprehensive spec, and image quality

Blocky styling, plastic build, no optical viewfinder

The Lumix LZ5 looks basic but it actually plays host to some nice features such as image stabilisation, exposure bracketing and a burst shooting modes, among many others. Image quality is good to fair at higher sensitivity settings (up to 1600 ISO) and...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 review

 

A tad too colourful for our man in grey?

High-levels of detail resolution ; Excellent value for money ; Impressive zoom lens ; Image stabiliser control

Exposure and white balance can be unnatural ; Some noise and grain

Well-priced and produces bright, detailed shots. A shame it doesn't quite make it to the levels expected from the more discerning enthusiast though

Panasonic DMC LZ5

 

The Panasonic DMC LZ5 is different to many typical digital cameras. It has the specification of a standard point and shoot camera, but it offers extra zoom with it's 6x lens.

6X optical zoom, Nice burst mode

A big optical zoom combined with robust features and solid image quality make this a good overall performer.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5

 

The 6-megapixel Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 doesn't clearly distinguish itself.

6X optical zoom, higher than most compacts. Image stabilization. Excellent resolution.

Substandard performance and noticeable shutter lag. Images a bit noisy.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 review

 

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3

Optical image stabilization; long-range, relatively fast lens; lots of handy features.

Mediocre performance; cheap build quality; some problems with image quality.

Poor low-light performance hinders the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5's useful features.
