Digital Camera Review has reviewed the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera. The TZ3 is actually an enhanced version of the TZ2. The camera sports a 7.2MP resolution, a 3.0-inch LCD, and a 28mm wide-angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens capable of achieving 10x optical zoom. It also provides the MEGA O.I.S. technology, which is an Intelligent Image Stabilization system that compensates for both hand-shake and motion blur. Here is the verdict.
The 10x optical zoom is impressive and not only because it’s a 10x zoom. It can also take 28mm wide angle shots (35mm equivalent), and as with all Panasonic Lumix cameras, it has optical image stabilization.Camera performance (shutter lag, cycle times, auto focus times) seems very good across the board. We’ll have a full discussion of image quality in the full review, but so far, I’m pretty impressed. The TZ3 accepts SDHC, SD, and MMC memory media. It also has just a bit of internal memory. A 1000 mAh lithium-ion battery pack powers the camera and Panasonic claims 270 shots by CIPA standards.
