Summary: Panasonic have a bit of a problem here. There's no denying that the Lumix DMC-SZ7 is a very pretty camera.

Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC SZ7 is a good choice if you are looking for a camera that you can take anywhere, has plenty of flexibility when it comes to picture taking and takes a good quality picture.
