Panasonic DMC-LZ2 Review

A new release from Panasonic, the Lumix DMC-LZ2 is one of 2 cameras that share identical bodies and characteristics, including a stabilized 6X zoom. The other, the DMC-LZ1, is equipped with a 4 megapixel CCD, while the one reviewed here provides a 5 megapixel image size.

Megapixel.net have posted a review of this digicam and have this to say-
"Attractively priced, offering a 5-megapixel resolution combined with a powerful and stabilized 6X optical zoom, the Lumix DMC-LZ2 is clearly an interesting camera.

While the DMC-LZ2 does not have have an optical viewfinder, it provides instead a 2-inch, 85,000 pixel LCD monitor whose resolution is sufficient for most situations. The screen remains legible, even when used outdoors under bright and direct sunlight.

In terms of image quality, the LZ2 delivers images that can be described as good to very good, and does so with the greatest ease. Its various programs have a tendency to use the lowest sensitivity possible when set to Auto ISO, limiting the chance that noise will intrude on the image."
