Product Description

12 Optical Zoom Puts Creativity Within Your Reach
The Lumix SZ8 Compact Digital Camera – 12x Optical Zoom Plus Built-in Wi-Fi Wrapped in a Stylish Body

Whoever said style and practicality couldn’t co-exist? The Lumix SZ8 squeezes a mighty 12 optical zoom and Wi-Fi connectivity into a svelte camera body that will slip easily into a pocket. Also on board are numerous special effects options – including Creative Control, Creative Retouch and Creative Panorama – to add fun and creativity in equal measure to the experience of shooting with the camera. This is one device that will suit everyone, from the family user to those who simply want a pocket model with a bit more ‘poke’ in the zoom department.

12 Optical Zoom Puts Creativity Within Your Reach

The SZ8 comes equipped with a 24mm ultra wide-angle lens with a powerful 12x optical zoom. In 35mm terms the focal range on offer is an impressive 24-288mm. Despite the camera’s slim and stylish profile, it is evident that there is versatility here in spades.

16 Megapixel CCD Sensor

A high resolution 16 megapixel CCD sensor provides a picture with enough detail to enable a photographer to be able to crop parts of their image and enlarge them without seeing a noticeable deterioration in picture quality.


Easy Wi-Fi Connection to Your Smartphone
Easy Wi-Fi Connection to Your Smartphone

Hook up the SZ8 to your smartphone by displaying the special QR code on the camera screen and using the free-to-download Panasonic Image App on to scan the QR code with your handset. Set up is easy and only takes a few seconds. A wireless connection between the camera and your smartphone or tablet lets you use a variety of Wi-Fi functions such as remote shooting, instant image transfer and geotagging.

Unique Filter Effects for Photos and Videos
Unique Filter Effects for Photos and Videos

As usual with a Panasonic camera, the SZ8 is fully loaded with a variety of Creative Control digital filter effects that can be automatically applied to images to add drama and fun. For example, Creative Panorama allows uses to create dynamic vertical or horizontal panoramic photos just by panning with the camera. The following options can be applied to both stills and videos: Expressive, Retro, Old Days, High Key, Low Key, Sepia, Dynamic Monochrome, Impressive Art, High Dynamic, Cross Process, Toy Effect, Miniature Effect and One Point Colour.

3-inch 460,000 Dot Resolution Intelligent LCD
3-inch 460,000 Dot Resolution Intelligent LCD

Compose and review photos and videos with the able aid of a large, high-resolution rear panel LCD display. Via the high quality screen, great visibility is assured in a wide variety of lighting conditions.

HDR (High Dynamic Range)
HDR (High Dynamic Range)

With High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode selected, several photos are shot in quick succession at different exposure levels. From these varied shots a single image is composed. In this way both over exposure and under exposure of the image is avoided and stunning results are achievable – even in difficult lighting conditions.

Wi-Fi Features on the Go
Wi-Fi Features on the Go

Upload and share your images on social networking sites immediately. Just use the Panasonic Image App available for your smartphone. The latest App also features a Photo Collage function, so photographers can combine several images into one for even easier sharing. Using the GPS facility of your smartphone or tablet it is also possible to record information relating to the location where the picture was taken.

720P HD Video Recording
720P HD Video Recording

Use the full extent of the camera’s zoom to draw faraway subjects closer and capture great looking video as well as stills. The SZ8 can record dynamic HD video in 1280x720 pixels resolution, and in Motion JPEG format too. A dedicated video recording button is provided on the top of the camera, thereby making it convenient for users to switch from shooting photos to shooting movies.

Colour Name: Black Verified Purchase
Handy pocket digicam with good lens and wifi capability. Only had a little while, bought it to replace a Samsung DV300, which has developed a fault (cheaper to buy a replacement than to get a repair done). Perhaps not as flexible in use as other compacts I have owned but it's a good stand in for general snapping. The good news is that its battery is a rechargeable L-ion, which means that I can get a spare and not have to keep buying AA batteries (even the rechargeable ones).

In use, works well so far - perhaps a little slow to set itself up for a shot, particularly when set to intelligent auto mode, with Flash switched on - takes a while to decide whether it needs to use the Flash or not, by which time the subject could have moved or looked away. The various shooting modes are perhaps a little simplistic for the more advance users - there is no Program mode as such but by running through the various settings, it is possible to create the right effect.

With a 12x Optical zoom, more than adequate for most ordinary situations. The wifi function allows images to be transferred to your smartphone or other wifi enabled device, either in a batch or as you go. Probably a bit of a drain on the battery in the auto transfer each shot mode but handy if you have a small memory card inserted.

Unlike some of the other compacts around, this one has some internal memory, so when your card is full, you can still take more shots - at full 16m, only 9 shots but more at lower resolution.

All in all, a very capable pocket sized compact with enough functionality to suit most tastes. Recommended

After trying the new TZ60 I had high hopes for this new entry model. On paper it looked pretty good with a larger than normal 12x zoom and whilst it's a lower end model it's not bargain basement price wise (ie under £80 odd) so I expected more here.

It does have some good points, but ultimately the images from this camera are well below par and even on a £50 camera wouldn't be acceptable.

Pros:
+ Nice 12x zoom range giving you 24-288mm equivalent on 35mm
+ Decent 3.0 inch 460k LCD quite easy to see in brighter light quite sharp
+ Has built in wifi
+ OIS (Optical image stabilisation) is good for about 3 stops or so

Cons:
- Images were very soft in the corners esp at the wider end of the lens range, extending quite a bit into the pictures, even at mid zoom levels the lens was still quite poor. At the full telephoto end not so bad but still unimpressive sharpness wise
- Mushy jpeg processing even at low ISO levels, lots of smearing and OTT noise reduction, at ISO 400 things fall to bits and get progressively worse up to ISO 1600 which is more like a painting than a photograph
- Video is only 1280 x 720 (mono) @30fps again suffering from over processing and mushy looks. I'd expect better here as just about every camera including ones less than half the price offer this.

I was a Panasonic Camera lover having thoroughly used my TZ7 for nearly 5 years. I was always amazed the amount of functions, the full HD video, and most importantly: crystal clear photos.

So after nearly 5 years I thought the step down from the T range (the S range) would be sufficient for my needs. I bought the camera for light general use.

This camera deserves an award it is so bad! My cheap spare Samsung Galaxy phone photos put the SZ8 to shame. The SZ8 pictures are so blurry and there is no clarity they are unusable. Also with the video if you are filming anything with multiple distances away it constantly refocuses making any recording unwatchable.

I'm sorry but for the money I paid and the quality of photos and video it's shocking. I really should have done more research, which I am usually good for.

Avoid at all costs!

This was an airport buy, in a hurry, without doing my usual research (lesson learned - never again). Fortunately I have been able to return it. But be warned - this is an astonishingly bad camera.

Colours on various settings and different light conditions were uniformly pale and washed out. Focus, again in different conditions and settings, was uniformly muzzy. Side-by-side pictures for comparison using my mobile phone produced far better results.

To be sure the price is fairly low for a 12x optical zoom camera. But there's little point in a low price when the results are so grim.

I'm a little disappointed with this purchase. It takes good photos, but what lets it down is the WiFi connection. I had real difficulty in getting it to connect, despite following the instructions to the letter. I managed it, somehow, only to discover that you can only send photos to another dominated device, my mobile in my case. I was hoping that I could email photos directly to family, friends, etc. But no, you have to send it to another device, and then share it. And getting it to connect each time is frustrating, as the process it nothing like the instructions, is confusing, and doesn't always work. A real let down for me
