Panasonic Lumix SZ7

 

Good things come in small packages, so the saying goes. The Panasonic Lumix SZ7 is certainly small, but is it any good?

10x optical zoom, Easy to use, Small enough to take anywhere, Fast AF for snap-happy candids

No manual control, Noisy at higher ISO settings

Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7

 

The Panasonic Lumix SZ7 is the first in a new line of "stylish zoom" compacts. Its combination of a small body yet significant 10x optical zoom (25-250mm equivalent) lens sounds promising. Does the SZ7 balance up both style and substance? The SZ7...

10x zoom, small size, point-and-shoot ease of use

Poor viewing angle on LCD screen, point-and-shoot, poor battery life

The SZ7 delivers on its "stylish zoom" promise - it looks decent, takes good pictures for the most part and the sizeable 10x optical zoom is a credit to have in such a small body size.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7 review

 

Incredibly slim for a 10x zoom camera, and image quality and performance are up to scratch. Only the screen's poor viewing angles keep the SZ7 from an award

Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7

 

A sleek, attractive compact with a 10x optical zoom lens

Well featured for price, great aesthetic, simple to use, decent images

Image processing at all ISO levels, muted tonal range

Although the feature set does help as much as hinder the performance of the SZ7, the end result is decent enough to use it as a holiday compact.

The Lumix DMC-SZ7 is small, yet comes with a 10x zoom lens and features very good image quality

Easy to carry and use ; Good lens ; Very good image quality

Not great in dim lighting

The Lumix DMC-SZ7 is a small camera, but it has a big lens that makes it a versatile camera. Its picture quality is good, its ease of use is high and it's a great little compact camera to carry with you in your pocket for all sorts of events, and even...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7 (Black) review

 

For such a small camera, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7 has a lot going for it.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7 delivers fast shooting performance and very good photo and movie quality in a slim package with a wide, long lens.

The SZ7's battery life could be better, and its pictures probably won't thrill pixel peepers.

A speedy little camera with a long lens, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7 performs beyond its tiny price tag.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7

 

A slim camera with an impressive 10x zoom lens, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ7 still struggles with image sharpness and detail at higher ISO settings.

Slim body. Long 10x zoom lens. 1080p video capture.

Soft images. Limited LCD viewing angle.

Performance and Conclusions On speed, the SZ7 delivers very respectable performance. It starts and shoots in 2 seconds, records a 0.2-second shutter lag, and can shoot a 4-shot burst of photos with 0.1 second between shots. It also has a standard...
