This is my 5th Lumix DMC camera and for good reasons..the camera is compact, with lots of features and a Leica zoom lens system

  • Summary: I bought the Lumix DMC-ZS30 to replace my older ZS20. The camera has many features that are important for prosumer photographers. It has a 30 times zoom range, RAW capability, GPS, a viewfinder for more stable photography and a Leica zoom system. I am retired and a serious photographer but often I prefer to carry a compact camera. The GPS is especially nice when traveling in Europe or areas in which I am not familiar.

User Review

  • Excerpt: A camera in your pocket on the road or trail preserves that unique scene; the camera too large or heavy to carry contributed nothing. The Panny ZS30 fits in a modest pocket and weighs little so there is little reason not to carry it every day. A 24mm equivalent wide angle captures the verdant landscape or striking sunset, a 480mm tele captures the full moon or the cute bluejay. Tele-macro from a couple of feet captures insect on flower.

  • Summary: Works good, but different than my last ZS30, don't know if it was made for another country or what. More options for panorama, but movie clips more difficult to upload.

A decent point-and-shoot camera.

  • Summary: This model is an improvement from its predecessor, DMC-ZS-20. Beside the added WiFi feature, this camera offers a leveling guide to help keeping the images from slanting. This saves lots of time of editing afterward. The camera construction is of good quality (It's made in Japan!). Once the camera is turned on, the lens pops out much quicker than the previous model, which usually hesitates for a few seconds before it decides what to do with itself.

proven itself over time

  • Summary: A little ticked off that the additional software is not available for Macs. There is a learning curve, I will be using it a lot next week and will add an additional post after I see how well it works. Weeks later... Once I figured out how to set things for action and/or low light, I was thrilled. In general the action photos came out pretty good for such a small camera. I was impressed.

I seem to not appreciate yet the advanced features of this camera.

  • Summary: I bought this to replace my old shure shot. I read the Lumix is better than sony or cannon 20 zoom compacts. It is indeed loaded with features, but far from the easy going of my old cannon. Wifi connectivity is to complex for a commputer savvy as i consider myself. So viewing on smart tv isnt working. I do that the old way. Movies format is kind of unique for my common players. Need to findout how to convert them.

Nice Little Camera

Kimball Corson, Amazon

  • Summary: I have many small cameras, but this is the one I seem to grab most. I am no longer willing to drag professional equipment around as the small stuff has gotten so much better. Wish it shot RAW but don't want the expense of upgrading to the ZS40. I'll wait for prices to drop after the next model after that arrives.

Probably an even higher rating after I understand it more.

  • Summary: Got it to replace a similar panasonic I lost. Have had 4 of them now and have always been very pleased by their quality-particularly the lenses. And all seem to be excellent for whatever level of picture taker you might be. Great size too.

  • Summary: The flash is out of the way and the pictures are clear and not out of focus like our coolpix was.
