panasonic-dmc-lz5

What I liked: Good photo quality (though see issues below), 6X zoom lens in a relatively small package, Optical image stabilization, Large 2.5″ LCD display is visible in low light (though see issues below), AF-assist lamp, good low light focusing, Very good performance, especially with a high speed SD card, Nice movie and burst modes, Handy “high angle” feature on LCD
What I didn’t care for: Above average noise; some vignetting and corner blurriness, Redeye, Poor LCD resolution, No optical viewfinder, High sensitivity scene mode is practically useless, More manual controls would’ve been nice, Miniscule amount of built-in memory, No USB 2.0 High Speed support “
