Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ5 – Review @ TrustedReviews

TrustedReviews has posted its review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5, new 6.0 megapixel point-and-shoot digital camera with 6x optical zoom (equivalent to 37-222mm ), Image Stabilizer and 2.5″ LCD. He gives the camera 4 out of 5 stars and writes;


“Unfortunately image quality proved to be the biggest disappointment. Although unlike the high-end Panasonic cameras the LZ5’s lens doesn’t have the Leica name on it, it is still of very good quality, and provides excellent detail and sharpness right across the frame, and the wide-angle barrel distortion is very well controlled. However it is badly let down by very poor image processing and an even worse sensor. Even at the lowest ISO setting there was image noise and colour distortion visible in darker areas on most shots, there was evidence of massive over-processing, and high-contrast or into-the-light shots had some of the worst purple fringing I’ve seen in the past five years.”
