Summary: I've had the camera for a little over a month. I bought it as a backup for when I didn't feel like lugging my DSLR around. On paper it's great. 12x zoom, image stabilization, HD video, cool look and feel and compact for all it offers. The problem for me is image quality.
Poor quality lcd screen that cracks for no known reason!!

Summary: I got the ZS3 for my wife as we have been very pleased with the quality of construction of the former models which we had (TZ3 and TZ4). However when i received it i noticed that that the construction quality was definitely not in the same league as our former TZ3 and TZ4 cameras :( The battery too...
Summary: This camera had all the features I wanted such as mega-zoom in still & video, stereo in video recording, hdmi output, etc and not to mention the 4.5 average buyer rating. But, unfortunately did not perform very well in indoors.
Great Product EXCEPT for Fragile LCD & Awful White Balance

Summary: This camera is a great package, and other reviwers have done a great job highlighting the features of the product. The positive aspects of this product are quite clear. I will highlight a few deficiencies that I think merit concern: (1) The LCD screen is very fragile.
Summary: Why, oh why did I not read the negative reviews on this camera before I bought it? I got so wrapped up on the camera's "capabilities" and all the positive reviews I was sure it was the ideal camera for me.
Summary: Ive had my TZ7 for almost a year now and I feel seriously let down by this camera. The LCD screen has broken twice, without it receiving any rough handling (I have treated the camera with care). The first time it broke I had it repaired free of charge by an approved agent.
Summary: There's a lot that I like about this camera: the way it looks, feels and functions just seems so right. And when it's good, it's very good - with the potential to create crisp, natural-looking photos. But my initial enthusiasm for this increasingly acclaimed digital-camera brand soon began to wane.
Summary: I like the design and the quality of the pictures, but that is of no use if the camera is not reliable. And this one is not. It broke down after just one month, with the screen showing nothing but pretty pattern of coloured lines. And I hear rumors that my screen trouble is not unique.
