Panasonic DMC-LZ5 – First Impression Review @ DigitaCameraInfo

Patrick Singleton had his hands on the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5, a new 6 megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera from Panasonic with Image Stabilizer and 2.5″ LCD. He liked how the camera has clean, and simple design, with an excellent image stabilization, solid construction, nice powerful and flash illuminates scene evenly and reasonable price. However, the did not like how the camera show lots of noise and marginal color accuracy, LCD display not good enough to inspect images, and the inaccuracy of exposure in challenging setting.

In conclusion he wrote: “Getting an image-stabilized 6x zoom in a 6 megapixel compact camera for under $280 seems like quite a coup – or getting that for under $230 in a 5 megapixel camera. We like the LZ5 and LZ3′s simple interface, the solid construction and the plain styling. Panasonic’s image stabilization is great – it’s effective and simple to use. We give the company credit for putting it on low-priced cameras, too.

Unfortunately, image quality doesn’t keep up with the cameras’ other attributes. Both noise and noise suppression take a toll on image quality. The cameras bump up warm colors, which will probably please snapshooters, but the results look inaccurate to us.”
