  • Conclusion: The 7MP Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 goes for around $260 USD (silver), a bit more in different colors. At this price it’s a good choice for people who want to take a versatile digicam along on their travels.

Panasonic Lumix TZ3 Review

  • Summary: With a sensible resolution and sensor size combined with a useful wide zoom, the TZ3 ticks a lot of the right boxes. Our only niggle is the slightly aggressive image processing, but other than that it’s a cracker.
  • Pros: 28mm wide-angle zoom, 16:9 panoramic shooting, Operating speed
  • Cons: Aggressive noise reduction

  • Summary: The TZ3 is not only 'one of its kind' when it comes to digital compacts - it also stands alone as the most successful marriage to date of a long focal range and relatively compact dimensions.
  • Pros: Solid performance, good quality build, extended zoom range, fair price given the level of specification on offer
  • Cons: Rather uninspiring design, bulkier and weightier than more slimline compacts

  • Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 is without a doubt one of the most flexible compact cameras on the market today – and one which has few if any rivals. It may not be the slimmest compact out there, but manages to pack in a genuine 10x optical zoom lens complete with image stabilisation and a 28mm...
  • Pros: 10x optical zoom with 28mm and OIS., Large 3in screen., Quick access to settings., Excellent build quality.
  • Cons: Noise becomes a problem above 200 ISO., Little or no manual control., Relatively poor battery life., Ultimate image quality beaten by some compacts.

  • Conclusion: When looking for a superzoom, don't settle for less. Panasonic's Lumix DMC-TZ3 has a powerful zoom lens with a nice wide viewing angle, too. If you're still not convinced, the Lumix is stylishly compact, takes awesome pictures, and is affordable to boot.
  • Pros: Nice 28mm wide-angle lens. Very compact. Big 3-inch LCD. Unique modes, like Intelligent ISO mode.
  • Cons: No true manual features. No RAW options. Can't change amount of flash.

  • Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 ($350) is the follow-up to the popular TZ1, a camera that I enjoyed so much, that I bought one as a gift for my dad. That camera offered a big 10X zoom, optical image stabilization, super fast performance, and decent photo quality in a compact body.
  • Pros: 10X, 28 - 280 mm lens in a relatively compact body; lens has remarkably little barrel distortion, 28 mm wide-angle available at all three aspect ratios, Good photo quality, even better with a few tweaks, Optical image stabilization, Enormous, high resolution 3-inch LCD display; easy to view outdo...
  • Cons: Still too much noise reduction, which smears details once the ISO leaves 100, Colors tend to be dull straight out of the camera (use vivid mode if you agree); some overexposure issues, Needs more manual controls, Useless high sensitivity mode, No zoom in movie mode (only mentioning this because t...

  • Conclusion: I really liked the TZ1 - as a concept and as a camera to use - and I would have been able to give it a much more wholehearted recommendation had the image quality issues and shutter lag not let it down so badly.
  • Pros: Uniquely versatile compact with 28-280mm equiv. lens, Excellent resolution, surprisingly sharp lens, Unusually versatile aspect ratio options, High quality construction for the price, Little (if any) color fringing, Very low distortion, Good shot-to-shot speed, Reliable white balance with fine tu...
  • Cons: Heavy noise reduction - make ISO 400+ usable only for small prints, NR smoothing/smearing of fine detail and texture even at ISO 100 (and fairly strong at ISO 200), Mild vignetting at widest zoom setting / maximum aperture, No manual control of shutter speed or aperture (not a huge issue to most ...
