Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix LS80 is a basic entry-level camera with 8 megapixels, 3X optical zoom and a 2.5 inch LCD. The LCD is very usable and the lens which starts at 33 mm is a small but useful plus.
Pros: Good image quality; automatic color fringing and redeye removal, Viewable LCD, 3X zoom lens starts a little wider than regular 36 mm lenses, Excellent battery life, Quick in the performance department, Many scene modes and Intelligent Auto; scene mode tooltips
Cons: Some detail loss from noise reduction, No on-board speaker so you can’t play back sound!, Redeye is present; No red-eye removal tool, Flimsy card compartment door; doesn’t open wide, No manual controls
Conclusion: The new, and older Panasonic-exclusive features are actually genuinely useful, rather than just another pointless acronym and sticker on the box. If this is the standard for Panasonic’s 2008 cameras, I’m looking forward to getting a TZ5 from them to review soon!
Summary: Users looking for an entry-level digital camera are spoiled for choice at the moment and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS80 is one of the better options, providing good quality pictures and a ton of features at a very affordable price.
Pros: Low price, sharp images, lots of features considering cost
Cons: Some noise issues, a little haloing, slow start-up time
