For a relatively inexpensive digital camera the Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ3 hits a high standard when it comes to picture quality. Importantly the camera is as at home in lowlight situations as it is in bright sunlight. Looking at the outdoor scenic shots the first point that strikes me is how sharply focused the photos are.The dedicated test for colour produces a fairly standard result. The colours are vivid without being at all shocking. Each colour is well balanced and levels on general are about right in my opinion.
I really like the Panasonic DMC LZ3. With its six times optical zoom lens it offers something different to so many digital cameras. Its simplicity is another factor that goes heavily in its favour. Picture quality is good and I think this camera represents a bit of a bargain.
