Good for the money.

M. Kane, Amazon
10 July 2009
  • Summary: When my Canon A710is died, I needed a point-and-shoot that would fit a pocket better, offer similar zoom range, and good battery life... and I needed it quickly. I did some quick research, and had settled on another camera, but came across a deal I couldn't pass up on Amazon. Being short on cash I decided to look into it further. The Lumix rated well on some of the review sites, so I went with it. For the money, this is a solid performer. First the bad.

Good Value, Slow Camera

  • Summary: I bought the LZ8K as a little spare cam to toss in my motorcycle's saddlebags when I'm off on a ride. On the plus side, it's small, easy to operate, the lens is very sharp, and battery life (I'm using rechargeable AA Lithium batteries) is quite good. Offsetting these plusses, is the very slow trigger-to-shot reactions in poor light or indoors. Recycling of the flash system is also quite slow.

  • Summary: The cycle times between pictures, even without using flash takes too long, the zoom does not work in movie mode.

Nice feature set; mediocre picture quality

  • Summary: Major points: 1 In some cases (usually in dark or very dark conditions), the camera produces completely unacceptable results, with small white "bubbles" appearing throughout the shot. I have researched this and there are a couple of notes on the web that complain of how the lens may accentuate "dust dots". Understand I have verified this on 2 different cameras, sending the first one back the day that I got it, only to have the same thing happen with the second.

Expected Better

  • Summary: We've had two Canon cameras which have taken great pictures, but the first model used a proprietary battery and we had to replace it twice and it was expensive. In our current model, the CCD went dead...and apparently it was a "known problem, but not recalled". This time around I decided to try Panasonic and this DMC-LZ8 looked like a nice package. Consumer Reports rated Panasonic lowest in repair rate, so we ordered.

Moyen comme son prix

  • Summary: Toujours à la recherche d'un appareil photo (non non je n'ai pas pu m'offrir le dernier à cause d'un prix un peu trop élevé), j'ai redemandé à mon ami s'il avait un nouveau modèle... Et donc il m'a proposé le Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ8. M'étant renseigné, j'ai constaté que ce dernier n'est tout simplement que le successeur du LZ-7, avec un meilleur équipement, notamment au niveau des pixels, et du nouveau moteur d'image de Panasonic qui est censé faciliter la prise de vue...
