Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3K Digital Camera

1 December 2008
  • Summary: I bought this when my Fuji F700 hit the pavement - too bad, that was a better camera. This one is solidly built, great screen, good features, but has three big drawbacks: it consistenly overexposes (I've manually set it to a darker exposure), the contrast and color depth seems mediocre, and it's bad in even moderately low light conditions - always uses a flash indoors even when it seems pretty bright, and you get a big overexposure on your subject when that happens.

mixed feelings

  • Summary: I was looking for a compact camera with some wideangle capability. This camera has very strong pros and cons. Pros: - Fantastic lens, absolutely no distortion even at wideangle (unlike Canon sd800 / sd870 that have horrible barrel distortion producing fish-eye images at wideangle). - Works as a USB mass storage device, no drivers needed. I was even able to upload pictures from a different camera and the panasonic would play them! 8GB SDHC worked fine.

Great Features, Image Quality Lacking

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I was REALLY excited to purchase this camera as I was planning a vacation and didn't want to carry my DSLR. I did my homework reading all the reviews. Other than the low light problem, I thought it would be a home-run. The camera arrived two days before my vacation (excellent service by Amazon as always). I opened the package, charged the battery and started testing. To my disappointment the images were simply not acceptable.

Camera almost great, Panasonic miserable.

  • Summary: Only had camera two months and the lens cover has stopped opening and shutting completely. I have to manually open and shut. However, the pictures, ease of use, etc are really quite impressive. The downside, it seems ridiculous that I have to pay for the shipping to get an under warranty camera repaired. (not too mention needing to get a 2 month old camera repaired). The Panasonic call center and the Panasonic repair center give conflicting instructions on shipping.

DISAPPOINTMENT

  • Summary: I jumped on the bandwagon myself, although I am returning this item. I take pictures indoors and outdoors of my children. Not so much landscapes and/or stationary things First issue - Indoors, if not lit well, will adjust your ISO setting resulting too much noise. Iso can be limited but then the shot will still be underexposed and with noise. There is a huge thread in regards to this at dpreview.com.

  • Summary: What I need is a good workhorse that I can slip in my pocket and take lots of clear and detailed digital photographs on construction sites. This works well (generally) . I've now had it for a couple of years It's reasonably tough, it slips in the pocket, it gets good detail, and it's pretty well foolproof.
  • Pros: Good photo quality, compact, robust, simple to use, good optical zoom
  • Cons: photos sometimes blurred

I want to love it, but ...

Richard & Joslyn "Richard & Joslyn", Amazon

  • Summary: I already have its larger sibling, the FZ20, and love that, so I wanted to like this one too. The TZ3 is nice to use and is a good size and has a pleasing solidness about it. But image quality and the flimsy lens cover are disappointing. The 28mm wide angle and 10x zoom are excellent and a joy to use - so much flexibility in framing your shots. Low light shots have a lot of noise/speckling in them but daytime shots are great.
