Panasonic Lumix ZX1 digital camera review
27 August 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. However, at the end of the day this is a fully automatic snapper with the advantage of a larger lens and point and shoot operation – affording a wider range of framing and compositional possibilities than normally found in its class.
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
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. Why? Here’s why. The very first thing that you would notice is the camera’s size. It’s so small that you can actually pocket it without much fuss.
Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC ZX1 does the job it sets out to do very well. The turn on and shutter lag times are very impressive. The camera takes a good picture in most situations and there are one or two extra features thrown in such as High Definition movies.
Pros: Picture quality - simple design - value for money - turn on time - shutter delay time
Cons: There is nothing that springs to mind as a serious weakness
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.
Excerpt: Le Panasonic est un cousin proche du Panasonic TZ7 qui connaît déjà un vif succès. Ses atouts ? Compacité, polyvalence, et facilité d'usage... - Compacité : ... et une certaine élégance dans la finition. - Polyvalence : le Panasonic ZX1 est équipé d'un zoom 25-200 mm, à large plage de focales offrant grand angle et position télé plus que confortable (avec stabilisation évidemment - d'une nouvelle génération qui fait gagné encore en pratique) ; il dispose aussi d'un mode...
Pros: Stabilisation, Zoom de large amplitude, Vidéo en HD
