Panasonic Lumix SZ1 Reviews

Whatdigitalcamera reviews the Panasonic Lumix SZ1 and writes;
“The fact it performs well for such a point ‘n’ shooter is vital as is its optical image stabilisation; it’s a winning combination for anyone needling longer zoom lens power but in a small package.”
Rating: ★★★★½

Ephotozine reviews the Panasonic Lumix SZ1 and writes;
“Add in optical image stabilisation and a good success rate for sharp photos even when using the zoom and you have a good combination if you’re looking for an ultra compact pocket sized camera with a lot of zoom. If continuous shooting was a little quicker, the camera had a better grip plus a few higher end features then this camera would be easy to recommend.”

Panasonic Lumix SZ1 User Reviews

Excellent value
“The anti-shake feature really works! It’s hard to hold a small camera steady, but this camera makes up for it. The menu system is intuitive and easy to use. Quality of photos is excellent. I bought it mainly because it’s small and fits into a pocket. I don’t like to look like a tourist when I travel, so this camera is ideal for travel.” – By Second Language of Vernon/Manchester CT

Perfect Point and Shoot – With a Great Zoom Too
“The metal body feels very sturdy and very well made. The pictures that it takes with any of the settings are all fantastic – with or without the zoom. The intelligent auto (iA) mode does a great job discerning what is required of the shot.” – By coffee lover
Rating: ★★★★★

Amazing zoom
“The overall quality is excellent for it’s class as well, with the exception of some indoor settings which EVERY camera in this class struggles with,… But if I play with manual settings, I can eventually get a good indoor picture, usually by turning flash OFF, which is counter intuitive for the novice.” – By Mike Jay
