  • Summary: If you're looking for a flashy point and shoot digital camera, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZR1 is not going to meet your needs. However, my review of the Lumix ZR1 shows a very solid digital camera with a surprising number of good features, compared to other cameras in its price range.
  • Pros: The ZR1 is a good value, The 8X optical zoom lens offers good versatility, The lens moves through its zoom quickly and quietly, You have several options for shooting at different ratios and resolutions, The ZR1's response times are very fast
  • Cons: LCD could be larger, LCD suffers from some glare problems in direct sunlight, Lacks basic manual control features, Camera body is a little thicker than some models

Panasonic Lumix ZX1 digital camera review

best4reviews.com
15 September 2010
  • Summary: With recent introductions to the ‘big zoom, small camera’ market from Fuji with its innovative F70EXR and Kodak with its great value Z950 – both offering 10x zoom lenses – it may be time that Panasonic’s little sister grew up.
  • Pros: Larger than average zoom range, easy operation, pocket friendly size, reasonable feature set and price
  • Cons: Slender dimensions mean it's tricky for users to get a good firm grip on the camera when shooting handheld, unassuming run of the mill design

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZR1 Review

Digital Photography School
30 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Panasonic has followed this design path for five years now… so I guess you could say things seem to be working for the approach. The essence is an attractive, slim camera with touches of steel, easy to find external buttons and a delightfully simple viewfinder menu to adjust the taps and tools in...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZX1

CNET
10 November 2009
  • Summary: Why bother looking at any of Panasonic's other numerous 12-megapixel compacts now that the Lumix DMC-ZX1 is here? It beats the whole lot for zoom range and, from the look of our test shots, image quality too, yet it's no bigger.
  • Pros: Useful zoom range; great lens quality; solid build quality and controls; small size.
  • Cons: Over-enthusiastic noise reduction at all ISOs; very close to the Lumix DMC-TZ6 and DMC-TZ7 in terms of price and features.

  • Summary: The ZX1 is a really nice camera to use; it feels solid and well built, and yet is small enough to easily slip into your pocket. Images are bright and punchy with impressive detail even at the full extension of the lens.
  • Pros: Compact size, 8x zoom
  • Cons: low-res scene modes

A tiny LUMIX camera with a huge 8x zoom

Good Gear Guide.au
19 October 2010
  • Summary: The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZR1 is a versatile camera with specifications that belie its small size. It can take photos at a maximum wide angle of 25mm, and its 8x zoom can reach up to 200mm. It's easy to use, has excellent focusing, and can take vibrant and reasonably clear photos.
  • Pros: Compact body, huge zoom, relatively crisp shots, excellent focusing
  • Cons: Mode dial is too loose and is easily knocked out of place, wide-angle shots have some distortion

  • Conclusion: On the whole a rather average performer producing a barely adequate level of quality. However the healthy focal range, abundance of scene modes and the ability to exercise a modest level of manual control justify it’s rather ambitious price tag…just.

  • Excerpt: Simplicity is what a handful of us look for in a camera. Imagine having a camera ready at all times without the need of getting into the complexities of various modes. If ease of use is what you are in search for in a camera then you should consider getting your hands on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZR1.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZX1 review

  • Summary: For a compromise between size and zoom range you won't find better than the ZX1
  • Pros: Great zoom range for such a small camera, and it doesn't come at the cost of quality
  • Cons: Nothing specific, but how about a touchscreen next time Panasonic?
