Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ1 Review by PC Magazine


Panasonic-Lumix-Dmc-Lz1PC Magazine reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ1 and writes - 'We like the LZ1's 6X optical zoom, which is above average among compact digital cameras, with most models at 3X or 4X (except, of course, the Nikon Coolpix 4800, which has an impressive 8.3X optical zoom lens). The f/2.8 to f/5.6, 6.1- to 36.6-mm (37- to 222-mm, 35-mm equivalent) lens may limit you at the telephoto end, especially in low-light situations. It also would have been nicer to see a slightly wider angle, say 35 mm, or even better, 30 mm. We also like that the LCD is 2 inches, though we'd be even happier with a 2.5-inch LCD like the one on some Casio ultracompact models.

Like several other Panasonic cameras, the LZ1 has an optical image stabilization feature, which worked very well on our tests. It has two types of stabilization (called Vibration Reduction): Mode 1, which operates continuously, and Mode 2, which is a standby mode and activates only at the moment the shutter releases. In our testing, we found that Mode 2 offers a greater degree of stabilization'
