"unreliable 2nd one that broke"

robertlubbie, CNET
9 January 2011
  • Pros: nice pictures, great video and zoom. Screen went out even when handling with care. Lacks quality! 2nd Lumix that I have purchased that did not last.
  • Cons: Screen blacks out and then when you press the little red light on the back it comes back for a few seconds and then goes fuzzy, multicolored blend and then back to black.

I really tried to like this camer but...

  • 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. I didn't expect it to be incredible. Even with somewhat low expectations I was still disappointed. Noise is the main issue.

Poor quality lcd screen that cracks for no known reason!!

Rayaz, Amazon
4 January 2010
  • 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 was "MADE IN CHINA" compared to the former "Made in Japan" batteries :( We have barely used it for 2 weeks and yes the picture quality was definitely better than the TZ4 by a...

Not that great for indoors

Ram Naga "RN", Amazon
22 December 2009
  • 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. Tried all AWB settings, still could only get subject within 3 to 4 feet in good clarity, the background always ended up dark. After doing some reading, noticed that some users have complained about a weak flash being a cause for this.

Great Product EXCEPT for Fragile LCD & Awful White Balance

Bob Dylan Fan, Amazon
14 September 2009
  • 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. Mine broke under normal usage, and while panasonic replaced the camera, they sent me the wrong color replacement! (2) The white balance is often wrong: This is the deal breaker.

Appareil très fragile ! Ecran cassé avant 2 ans sans garantie.

Un anonyme, Comparateur
23 September 2011
  • Summary: Il est très regrettable que l'écran ne soit pas assez solide ou protégé. Le fait qu'il soit fixe sur le dos de l'appareil ne permet pas une visualisation aisée à la prise de vue. L'optique est bonne, mais c'est loin d'être de la qualité pour le prix.

enfoque profundidad de campo

17 July 2011
  • Summary: Lumix tz7; estoy de acuerdo con ladi; posiblemente, es una maquina, muy dificil de manejar, no es sencilla.- Lo que puedes hacer es, que te la revisen, y vuelvan a cargar, los programas.- Por mi parte me es imposible, conseguir, profundidad de campo, y un f de 8 ò mas, he llegdo, engañando a la maquina, a f 6,6, pero esta no se deja engañar.- Como se puede cerrar, el objetivo, sin perder vision lateral.- se trabaj bien con macro-zoon.

Empfindliches Display

benwischben, eBay.de
8 May 2010
  • Summary: Nach den guetn Testberichten habe ich mich für die Lumix DMC-Z23 / DMC-TZ7 entschieden. Der 12fach Zoom hat aber seine Grenzen, vieles was gezoomt wird erscheint nicht klar und deutlich. Das Display ist sehr empfindlich, es bricht leicht, sogar in der Art, dass der äußere Schutz, eine Kunststoffscheibe, ohne Beschädigung ist.

decepción total

tete, quesabesde.com
19 April 2010
  • Summary: LLevo pocos días con esta cámara y cada vez me gusta menos. En el modo inteligente, todo parece correcto y en la pantalla se ven muy bien las fotos, pero las pasas al pc, las ves en tamaño real y la mayoría están con una nitidez malísima, no tienen definición, no tienen vida. Impensable aumentar un detalle aunque sea un poquito. Hay excepciones, pero son eso excepciones, la regla son las fotos malas.
