Panasonic SZ10 review


A 12x optical zoom, inbuilt Wi-Fi and a selfie-screen make this a neat and versatile little camera

Optical zoom ; Inbuilt Wi-Fi ; Creative modes

Poor performance in low light ; No manual control ; No touch screen

The SZ10 has a wide range of features, including a selfie screen, Wi-Fi and an impressive 12x zoom range, but it's let down by its indifferent image quality, especially at higher ISO settings in poor light. The SZ10 is very simple and delivers some...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ10 Review


We review the compact and wallet friendly Panasonic Lumix SZ10, with 12x optical zoom lens, a tilting 'selfie' screen and Wi-Fi.

12x optical zoom lens ; Creative effects ; Easy to use ; Wi-Fi connectivity ; Compact and lightweight

Non-standard USB cable for charging (not MicroUSB) ; Very low-resolution panoramic photos ; 720p video recording ; Slow continuous shooting

The Panasonic Lumix SZ10 is a compact and fairly stylish point and shoot camera with a good zoom range, thanks to a 12x optical zoom lens. The tilting screen and built in Wi-Fi will be appealing to many however, the use of a CCD sensor means that the...
