The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 Digital Camera has been good for us.

Excerpt: I purchased the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 digital camera about a year ago to replace a Nikon Coolpix S3 that I had had for a few years. I am by no means a photography expert, just an average person who takes photos at special occasions, and I would say this camera has been an improvement over the last one. It shoots better in low-light settings, has HD video capability, and has a bigger zoom.
Great optical zoom, great video with zoom - not as easy as Canon

Excerpt: OK, we've had this camera for about a year now. No mechanical/electronic issues whatsoever. Very happy with it from a build quality, fit and finish, etc. Battery life seems to be really good with this camera. Which is important because you have to plug it or the battery in to charge the battery as it doesn't use "off the shelf" batteries. I love the size of the camera. I bought a little carabiner clip carrying case for it, and it has a little lanyard.
Summary: This has been a very good camera for me. It takes nice picture, the menu's are easy enough to get through, and the zoom is amazing. It's bigger than those slim cameras but not by much and takes infinitely better pictures. I have DSLR and an iPhone 4s and i'm finding this camera's uses more and more limited. I pretty much take all my pictures with my iPhone now and if i want more quality i'll use my nikon Dslr.
Summary: The Lumix ZS3 is an outstanding pocket camera, offering telephoto and macro capabilities, in addition to 720 HD video. Compared to other point-and-shoot cameras, the image quality is quite good. Pros... A lot in a pocket sized package. Great image/video quality. Macro setting is very good. Durable aluminum build. Auto setting works well (except action shots). Cons... Few manual controls. You have to go through the menu to change shutter speed.
Summary: For a point and shoot, this is an excellent camera. Quality construction, portability, (fits right in my purse) great pictures, amazing zoom. I bought this camera mainly for the zoom as it is 12 X optical. It was a bonus that it takes incredibly good video. Also great in low light. The 3" display is beautiful but in sunlight, it is hard to see. Purchased an optional mini HDMI cord and watched the video and stills on the HD t.v. Beautiful pictures.
Summary: The red of the Panasonic ZS3 is eye-catching and lovely, but without being ostentatious or showy, something I was worried about. The camera was slightly heavier than I expected, but when I used both hands to hold the camera and frame the shot, it felt perfect in my hands. The color quality is pretty stunning, although watch out for difficulty getting your colors true-to-life in subway stations and the like. The LCD screen is beautiful with accurate colors.
Summary: Menus are great. Easy to find what you are looking for. The ability to preset Scene Modes 1 & 2 is definitely a nice feature. Photo quality is excellent. My only objection is the lack of a view finder. I have made the LED screen as bright as possible, but unfortunately I have progressive eyeglasses and in bright light I have trouble seeing the screen.
Excerpt: Just one word : Great! The right moment to buy a TZ7(lower prices but still pretty new technology). Excellent pictures and astonishing HD movies. Really impressive to me. Problems: The menu is not really intuitive to me. (My old cam is a Canon G3...) Spare battery costs a fortune! No mini hdmi cable in the box, that's also a bit disappointing.
Excerpt: My beloved Lumix TZ4 was unfortunately stolen last week, so I went out today and snapped up the ZS3 (TZ7) (from an individual on Craigslist - barely used it). I knew I wanted this particular model because a person on YouTube posted a ton of concert videos they had taken with the ZS3 and the quality was absolutely stunning. I mostly use the camera for taking live concert shots, and I've gotten some amazing ones with the TZ4.
