Product Description

The LUMIX SZ3 Compact Digital Camera --Featuring a Slim Design, 10x Optical Zoom and Exciting Filter Effects

The DMC-SZ3 incorporates 25mm ultra wide-angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with powerful 10x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 25-250mm) to boast high versatility despite the camera's slim, stylish profile. Passing Leica's stringent standards, it boasts exceptional optical performance with stunning clarity with minimum distortion and flare. Intelligent Zoom function virtually extends the zoom ratio to 20x equivalent draws the subject even closer than the original optical zoom with minimum deterioration of image quality.

High Quality Pictures with 16-megapixel CCD Sensor

Panasonic's high resolution 16.1 megapixel imaging chip provides high quality pictures with the flexibility to print out large sized photographs or crop into parts of the image while still retaining a good pixel count.

High Resolution Leica Lens

Due to the strenuous image quality control checks that are enforced by Leica during Panasonic's lens manufacturing process, high quality and performance is assured in three main areas: Resolution - sharp and clear all the way to the edge and corners. Distortion - straight lines must appear straight, even at the wide angle. Ghost-free clarity - images should be largely free of ghosting or flare.

Panasonic SZ3
High-zoom shooting for when you want to get close.
Powerful 10x Optical Zoom Lens

For a camera so slim it seems incredible that a 10x optical zoom lens can be included. But Panasonic's expertise in lens manufacturing means they have cleverly engineered the lens array to provide a 10 times magnification that takes you in close to your subject just when you need it.

20x Intelligent Zoom

This SZ model doesn't just offer a powerful optical zoom, it also includes a clever combination of optical and digital technology to get you even closer to your subject. The powerful image processing of the Venus engine means that a high quality image can be created from the telephoto lens that is equivalent to an incredible 20x magnification (twice the optical zoom limit).

25mm (Equivalent) Wide-angle Lens

Of course sometimes you want to photograph wide vistas or just fit a large group of people into the shot. This is where the 25mm equivalent wide angle lens on board this camera comes into its own. Its wide angle of view allows more of your subject into the photograph, which is great for those times when you can't step back far enough to fit it all in.

Mega Optical Image Stabilisation for Blur Free Pictures

Image stabilisation is essential when taking high zoom pictures without the use of a tripod. Optical stabilisation is the best method as it counteracts the blur that normally occurs by hand holding the camera but does not degrade the image. With Panasonic's Mega O.I.S. pictures are sharp and blur free even when the shooting conditions are tricky.

Sonic-speed AF to Catch That Fleeting Moment

The Sonic Speed AF and a quick start-up time help you to quickly focus on moving subjects, such as when you're shooting sports scenes or animals.

2.7 Inch (6.7cm) LCD with High Angle & Auto Brightness Mode

A 2.7 inch LCD is offered that works well in bright light due to the Auto Brightness sensor that automatically increases brightness by up to 40% when in sunny conditions. It also has a "high angle" mode that enables you to still see the image when holding the camera up high.

iA (Intelligent Auto) Shooting Mode

The art of taking interesting photographs is to have a camera that is ready to shoot when the moment arises. iA mode lets you take the picture without you having to worry about what settings to use. The camera intelligently works out the type of scene that you are trying to capture. Whether it is a picture of a person's face (using Auto Portrait mode), a dramatic landscape (using Auto Landscape mode), a close up of a beautiful flower (using Auto Macro mode) or a group of friends (using Auto Face Detection). All the most commonly used shooting scenarios are programmed in to the camera and the camera makes all the internal settings automatically, leaving you to just press the button.

Creative Filter Control for Recording

To add an interesting new look to your photos any one of 12 creative filter effects can be selected before taking your shot: Expressive, Retro, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, High Dynamic, Dynamic Monochrome, Miniature, Toy Photo, Impressive Art, Cross Process and One-point Colour.

Panasonic SZ3
Add creative effects to your panorama shooting.
Creative Panorama Shooting Mode with Filter Effects

The Ultra-wide shooting panorama mode not only allows you to capture vast landscapes in one complete picture, but in a Panasonic first, this camera also offers "Creative Panorama" mode which allows you to choose from up to 12 filter effects* that can be applied to your shot.

Multiple Scene Setting Auto Shooting Modes

Up to 18 pre-programmed scene modes can be offered (number varies depending on model) giving you the choice of a wide range of shooting scenarios. Just select the one that best describes the scene you are taking, and the camera makes the best settings automatically.

Panasonic XS1
Recording at 1280 x 720 resolution means your video recordings look great when watched on a compatible HD TV.
MP4 HD Lite Video Recording Mode

Movie record mode is MP4 (H.264) format. High Definition video at 1280x720 can be shot at 25 Progressive frames per second. MP4 format is compatible with many video editing software packages, but is also compatible with iTunes for playback on Smartphone or tablet devices.

USB Charging Function

A USB AC adaptor is included in the box. This convenient accessory enables you to charge the battery inside the camera from any mains power outlet. It is compact and easy to carry around with you giving you a wide number of options to charge up the battery. Alternatively, you can use the supplied USB cable to charge the camera from a USB port on a computer, for example.

* Number of effects varies according to model.

Colour Name: Brown Verified Purchase
I wanted a long travel zoom (I know 10 x is not a long zoom but I wanted this model of Lumix specifically SZ1 or SZ3 - the SZ1 had very good reviews on Amazon and I could hardly see a difference between the two apart from slight appearance modifications, so my purchase got brought forward as Amazon dropped this to under £100 and it was therefore cheaper than it's predecessor. Firstly brown was not an option with the SZ1 and it is cool in colour and design, it is sleek, compact and stylish and it's controls are user friendly.

My likes are: This model though comparatively cheap comes with a Leica lens! It takes very good photos outside in sunny blue sky weather, the colours produced are vibrant and rich. There are a plethora of scene modes and also the useful auto intelligent mode allowing both the budding amateur, the enthusiast and the non photographer to snap happy. The LCD display is bright and performs well in sunny weather compared to my last digital camera. As I mentioned it is sleek compact and light.

My dislikes are: I now see why comparison sites say '10 x' is a poor zoom for a travel zoom camera (but to be fair to Lumix, this camera is in their super-zoom range not travel zoom). I tested the camera against a Nikon s6300, the only noticeable difference showed up in the picture quality in low light conditions, the SZ3 definitely did struggle somewhat but this is fair as now having read more and realised the CMOS sensor in the Nikon would always out perform the CCD sensor in the SZ3 in low lighting. The zoom factor for me is not an issue as '10 x' is still ideal and an upgrade from what I had and if you're looking to increase your zoom beyond this in the Lumix range, prepare to increase your spend.

Colour Name: Brown Verified Purchase
This camera was ordered via Amazon market place supplied by Lets Go Digital. It was delivered next day by courier although I had opted for free standard delivery. A good start.

There was very little to do on start up as there was some charge in the battery and the camera has on board memory. I was keen to try it out and took a shot of my garden but was alarmed when I saw the result. It made my lawn a brilliant almost fluorescent green whereas I like colour to be natural as produced by my 8 year old Sony. My immediate reaction was to return it. Amazon returns policy does not apply to marketplace transactions. Lets Go Digital said that if I was unhappy with it they would give a full refund, another plus for this Company! However, I find that in some light conditions this brightness is an advantage and I am getting used to it. Other features compensate well.

The brown and silver finish is superior although it is easy to lose the camera if you put it down anywhere! The combination of 16mp, 10x optical zoom and Leica lens is hard to beat in this price range and there are a host of features. I don't want to return it!!

I bought this camera as I was going on holidays as my last one (a Samsung) had finally given up. My trip was to the Southern Hemisphere and I was in all sorts of weather and light conditions and a wide range of location types. I was a little worried when it arrived in the post as it had been a bit squashed and the packaging was damaged but everything seemed to be in order.

In terms of the look and feel it is very light without being overly flimsy, however if you are accident prone I doubt it would survive a fall onto a hard surface. It is neat and flat when turned off so it will fit in jeans pockets although I would not recommend doing this for fear of the screen getting damaged. I did have a case but for the most part I have carried it in a coat pocket without any problems. It also comes with a lanyard which is very useful and sturdy.

On first use I found it extremely user friendly. I have never been a fan of touch screens (which seem to be finding their way into many competing models) so the buttons on this model are very welcome particularly given that they are well spaced apart so you do not hit the wrong one.

The Intelligent Auto feature will work for most things but changing the mode to suit particular conditions is very easy and there is a wide range of options to chose from. However, the camera is not especially good for night time conditions even with the correct mode switched on. The panoramic mode is also excellent for the most part but if you end up with direct sunlight in one of these types of shots it will mess up the picture (ends up looking like two different pictures pasted together). The video mode is not exceptional by any means but it is better than many previous cameras I have had.

Basically an automated point and shoot camera with a variety of special scene modes. The Leica lens probably makes the vital difference here, giving good crisp images in a majority of circumstances. In difficult lighting conditions, manually selecting the correct scene mode allows this camera to produce good results that just wouldn't be possible in automatic mode. Usable flash range is limited to under 30 feet, although this isn't unusual for a small pocket camera of this size. The LCD viewfinder has a matt finish making it viewable in bright sunlight, an important aspect that many other cameras fail on. The camera is well made and fits easily into a trouser or jacket pocket. As an everyday ready-to-go point and shoot camera, this camera produces quality images most of the time and is probably best of breed in this price category.
