Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ5

CNET
31 October 2012
  • Summary: Because of its delightfully designed shell, we really wanted to love the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ5. Unfortunately, its outward beauty meant that compromises had to be made elsewhere, such as the low-res screen and poor video resolution.
  • Pros: Lovely, high-class body, Wi-Fi and DLNA at a low price
  • Cons: We'd happily trade Wi-Fi and DLNA for a high-res screen and 1080i video

Panasonic Lumix SZ5 Review

ePHOTOzine
3 October 2012
  • Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix SZ5 is Panasonic's latest compact camera with built in Wi-Fi, while previous models from Panasonic had limited Wi-Fi connectivity (sharing to phone only), the new SZ5 allows you to control it from a smartphone, share to smartphones, connect to DLNA devices (TV etc), and upload directly to the internet (once you've setup a Lumix account).
  • Pros: Compact metal bodied camera, Good 10x optical zoom lens, Quick focusing, Easy to use (apart from the Wi-Fi), Good image quality and colour
  • Cons: Wi-Fi drains battery life, Not impressed by the screen quality, Awkward Wi-Fi connections / problems with logon / PC still needed at times

Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ5

CNET
5 September 2012
  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ5 consistently produced high-quality images in my tests, with good low-light performance, bold colours and a great level of detail, right into the corners of the frame. The built-in Wi-Fi is very tempting as it's been paired with free iOS and Android remote control apps, but rivals with similar specs undercut its price.
  • Pros: Image quality; Built-in Wi-Fi; Free iOS and Android companion apps; Good low-light performance.
  • Cons: Wind noise on movies; There are cheaper comparable rivals.

Test: Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ5 (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
3 February 2013
  • Conclusion: Panasonic bietet mit der SZ5 eine interessante Kamera für alle, bei denen kompakte Abmessungen, Vernetzung per WLAN und ein günstiger Preis auf der Anforderungsliste stehen. Die SZ5 überzeugt durch einen allzeit rasant schärfenden Autofokus und eine einfache Bedienung. Über WLAN können Sie Fotos verschicken und die Kamera fernsteuern. Die Bildqualität zeigt Licht und Schatten und bekommt von uns eine befriedigende Note.
  • Pros: Wi-Fi zur Datenübertragung und Fernsteuerung, Leicht und handlich, Allzeit Schnappschuss-tauglich
  • Cons: Display-Auflösung, Nur 720p-Video, Bildrauschen ab ISO 400

Panasonic DMC-SZ5 : le WiFi autrement

Ere Numérique
1 October 2012
  • Excerpt: En attendant le GH3, le Panasonic DMC-SZ5 est le premier appareil Panasonic à intégrer le Wi-Fi, mais l’approche est radicalement différente de celle de Samsung. Ainsi, il n’intègre pas de firmware évolué pour poster directement sur les réseaux sociaux. Il faudra en passer par un smartphone ou une tablette pour cela.
  • Pros: Zoom 10x convaincant, Wi-Fi
