EXTREMELY Disappointed with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ30!
2 April 2014
Summary: I've had this camera one week and no way no how does it even come close to my Lumix DMC-ZS5, my all time favorite Panasonic camera! Yes, there is a 2-3 second delay with snapping a digital image with the LZ30. That is sub par when I need to get pics of my dogs catching balls and Frisbees in mid air or any other action shot!
Summary: It was a tough decision between the Lumina and the Power Shot but I settled on the Lumina because I'm replacing my old Lumina - that's ten years old and outdated. The old camera has been on many vacations and such and I've never been known to treat my things gently. The old camera still works by the way. This camera has some amazing zoom. I can't wait to get wildlife shots this summer.
Summary: I didn't have this camera long enough to explore its features. I received it at work and tried it out. The camera took at least 2 - 3 seconds to focus. In this amount of time, you can miss quite a few shots. I returned it the next day. In the camera's defense, I may have simply received a defective unit.
Summary: I have had this camera now for a month. As with all cameras, it takes some time getting used to and to finding out the best ways to shoot pics in various situations. My best results are under the following conditions - use the camera in P mode, and set the ISO/ASA to 100 or 200 (400 if you're really in a poorly lit place). Beyond 400 ASA the image quality degrades. The good: Image stabilisation is good. The ultra-zoom is excellent. Picture quality is very good.
