Excerpt: Excellent all rounder in a compact body. I use mainly as a back up to my DSLR and for when the full kit won't fit. Great zoom reach and very usable (just don't creep into the digital zoom!), good quality video, limitations are really only those of any compact - relatively slow AF, difficult to use manual settings, can't easily attach a polariser for landscapes etc..
Excerpt: Like it's close sibling, the ZS5, the ZS7 is an excellent camera. It provides all of the core capabilities of a modern point and shoot, coupled with the addition of GPS tagging. Most of the review below follows my comments on the ZS5. They are essentially the same camera with the ZS7 throwing in GPS support. From a point and shoot perspective, the ZS7 automates most of the common functions by the use of Intelligent Auto.
Excerpt: I just bought this camera in June, and love it! It takes great pics, up close as well as zoomed out. Picks up colors nicely. It does average in low light--not as bad as many other cameras out there, but could be better. Overall a great point and shoot! The GPA is nice to see where you took your pics as well. You do need to be sure to turn this option off if you travel by plane though, so that's something to remember that is new. I like all the different flash...
Excerpt: I used to have a Canon Powershot G3 since ages and just did not want to change my camera although it was high time - until I saw the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7. The pictures and video are so amazing that I was ashamed I didn't buy this earlier. It comes with 12x optical zoom (Note: this is optical zoom and not digital zoom unlike a lot of cameras which advertise digital zoom. You can digitally zoom later using Photoshop or equivalent photo processing software.
Excerpt: This is my first camera purchase and I did a lot of research before buying. Most of the reviews I read stated this was a great camera, so I decided to buy it. I must agree the pictures come out great ( I don't really look at alot of pictures though so I am not a good judge ). There are several modes on the camera, it has GPS, and face recognition (never used them but nice to have I guess).

Excerpt: The Panasonic - LUMIX DMC-ZS7 / DMC-TZ10 Digital Camera may cost more than you'd like, but it is definitely worth the amount of money you're spending. It has many good qualities. Firstly, for being a small camera, it has a 12.1 optical zoom, and this has come in handy for me at concerts or any special events. It makes 30th row look like you're in 3rd row. Another pro about this camera is that the video is HD, so the quality for a video is a great one. i.e. If you're...
