Panasonic DMC LZ8

 

The Panasonic DMC LZ8 is an 8 megapixel digital camera with a 5x optical zoom lens. It has manual exposure controls, but remains easy to use. It is able to produce movies for playback on widescreen televisions

Ease of use - wide screen movies

Shutter delay could be that little faster, especially with flash

"This camera has a specification that is a step up from more basic point and shot models. It includes manual exposure modes. Picture quality is not perfect, but the camera is available for quite a low price."

Good specs but will the Lumix DMC-LZ8 live up to them?

The Lumix DMC-LZ8 is a formidable camera with an impressive array of features for the relatively small price tag

It's often said that no one makes bad cars these days... well the same could be said of digital cameras. But how many of today's digital compacts are really great- How many of them manage to tick all the boxes at a price that's affordable-With the...

Plenty of handy features, Great value for money, Good image quality, Easy to use

Fairly modest styling

The Panasonic Lumix LZ8 will never rival an SLR for image quality, but as a second camera for your pocket or handbag, it's great. The 5x zoom, superb colours and spot-on metering make it a great travel companion

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ8

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ8 is an 8-megapixel point-and-shoot camera, available for around $180, with some surprising features at the price, including image stabilization and a 5x zoom

The LZ8 isn't the smallest compact camera, weighing in at about five ounces and measuring 2.44 x 3.84 x 1.31 inches. The added size does make it easier to hold than some of the tiny point-and-shoots we've seen. We found the buttons and dials on the LZ8...

Good motion pictures. Very easy to use though I do have a larger X12 panasonic so menu was similiar.

Very short AA battery life has put me off even with 2500mA/h Rechargeables.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ8

 

Good Features all out door pictures came out fine. I used the soft touch for some of the portrates

Had a problem taking a distance photograph of my daughter graduation it came out dark. This could be due to the fact I was not used to the camera but when I bought it I thought it was just a point and shoot.
