Panasonic has done it again by producing a camera that is loaded with great features. This time it’s the Panasonic DMC-LZ5, with seven megapixels. CNET does not believe that the camera’s design has anything special about it, but that it is on compact. According to CNET, some of the great qualities that this camera has to offer include the fact that it has optical image stabilization, a long range lens, and a variety of handy features. The negatives include the build of the camera is of cheap quality, and that there are some problems with the quality of the images. Although it does pretty well in locations which are brighter, the camera does perform well in locations which have low lighting.

Good Gear Guide does not like the design of the camera, which they consider to be chunky. The main benefit which they have found with this camera is the fact that it has both a good burst mode and a big zoom. Another great quality about this camera is that it produces pictures which are really sharp, as well as pictures which are pretty good color-wise. If you are looking for a camera which will take continuous shots while you are away from the camera, this may be a great choice for you, as it has very good continuous shot modes. According to Cameras.co.uk, it is agreed that the pictures which are produced from the DMC-LZ5 appear to be of good color quality, as well as crisp. Another one of the qualities which is beneficial about this camera is the fact that it is suitable in outside environments, because it handles the glare from the sun well. One of the main disadvantages that Cameras.co.uk has found with this camera is the fact that the time between taking pictures is very slow.
