The black Lumix DMC-SZ3 Digital Camera from Panasonic is a compact camera with a long lens. Its 16.1MP CCD sensor and Venus Engine image processor provide detailed images, accurate colors and fast performance and its 10X optical zoom lens stretches from ultra wide-angle to telephoto length to capture most any shot you will need. This Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens offers a 35mm equivalent focal length of 25-250mm with a maximum aperture of f/3.1 at the wide-angle end. This aperture is wide enough to be fast in low light and the camera's MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) will compensate for any camera shake to provide clear photos and videos when shooting at the long lengths that the lens offers. In case you need to reach even further, a 20x Intelligent digital zoom is also available.

720p HD video recording is also supported by the SZ3 and a dedicated one-touch button will take you instantly from photo mode to video. A 2.7" Intelligent LCD screen is provided for composition and playback, it provides 11-step auto brightness that changes as lighting conditions change. 

The SZ3 offers fast start-up and auto focus and its Intelligent Auto mode allows the camera to set all optimal adjustments while you compose and shoot. If you want your settings to be even more specific, 15 individual Scene Modes, such as Portrait, Sunset or Sports, offer predefined settings that correspond to the scene you are shooting. Four photo aspect ratios are also available: 4:3, 3:2, 16:9 and 1:1.

For expressive imaging, Creative Control and Creative Retouch allow you to add (before or after you shoot) 12 in-camera effects that give your images that something special, for example Retro look, Toy Effect or One Point Color. Creative Panorama offers the same effects for panorama images and Beauty Retouch Mode allows you to add make-up and teeth-whitening effects.

The DMC-SZ3 provides 90MB of internal memory in case your memory card fills up and can be charged from your computer via its USB input as well as by a conventional AC charger. PHOTOfunSTUDIO 9.0 software is included with your camera.

Leica DC Vario-Elmar 10x Optical Zoom Lens

      This is a carry/around back-up to my Nikon D200 and my FujiFilm HXR30.
      I bought it to carry along on a forthcoming trip to Japan. I wanted something to put into my pocket for times when a bigger DSLR wouldn't be convenient. The features that Panasonic/Lumix packed into this little gem are too many to expand upon in this review. Trust me, it's just about all one needs to get great images and monaural 1080 video. Go on-line to see of which I speak. A real plus was buying it from B&H. Good price, fast delivery guaranteed satisfaction for 30 days. the icing is the Leica lens. Tack sharp!

      Have mostly used camera indoors and am still learning, but it is taking much more time than more complicated cameras I already have. Biggest problem may be it is so light that merely pressing the shutter release moves the camera -- and the camera is too small to hold comfortably in two average sized hands. Also disappointed in low light resolution. Overall not too happy but not giving up

      Comments about Lumix DMC-SZ3 Digital Camera (Black):

      This is a great little camera for snapshots. I often carry it when I'm shooting with my DSLR with long lens. I love the panorama feature which stiches the images in camera. Not good in low light however. Very grainy images. So I don't use on Auto ISO for that reason. Overall a good little pocket camera. I like that the exposure compensation is on a dial on camera and not in a menu.

      I've had this camera for about 2 weeks. I use it for work, I take about 200 photos a day and it's perfect, take clear quality pics. I would recommend to anyone that needs a good point and shot camera.

            I ordered the camera as a last-minute purchase for an upcoming trip to Scotland and it worked out great: It arrived on time, was easy to use (although I haven't yet deciphered all of its options), and is tiny to tuck into your pocket. The battery lasted for my entire trip, so that was a pleasant surprise.

                    purchased for my mom who's not terribly tech-y, but able to figure out simple camera uses. the cameras specs met what i was looking for in both zoom capacity and pixels. although i do have to say that i should have looked at the product description better before purchasing. this camera does NOT have the 20x digital zoom that other i thought it did.

                    I bought this camera for my daughter for Christmas. I own the older version, and can't believe how much more this camera does. It can make only the focus of the picture be color while the rest of the picture is black and white. The zoom is great, and it's small and light. I think it's great, and she loves it!!! You can't go wrong with this camera if you are wanting one that is reasonably priced, takes great pictures, and is small and light.

                            I used to have the old T8 and I`ts great to realize the SZ3 does the same good pictures being much smaller and lighter. Just hope it will last as long as the old models.

                              Very good images for such a small camera. Beware that the shutter is easily damaged taking the camera out of a shirt pocket if the lens is top up.

                                This is a carry/around back-up to my Nikon D200 and my FujiFilm HXR30.
                                I bought it to carry along on a forthcoming trip to Japan. I wanted something to put into my pocket for times when a bigger DSLR wouldn't be convenient. The features that Panasonic/Lumix packed into this little gem are too many to expand upon in this review. Trust me, it's just about all one needs to get great images and monaural 1080 video. Go on-line to see of which I speak. A real plus was buying it from B&H. Good price, fast delivery guaranteed satisfaction for 30 days. the icing is the Leica lens. Tack sharp!

                                    Very good photo quality for such a small, sleek camera. Had an earlier model of this camera which I also liked, but this version has an even better zoom. Terrific choice for travel.

                                      Have mostly used camera indoors and am still learning, but it is taking much more time than more complicated cameras I already have. Biggest problem may be it is so light that merely pressing the shutter release moves the camera -- and the camera is too small to hold comfortably in two average sized hands. Also disappointed in low light resolution. Overall not too happy but not giving up

                                        When I saw the price of this camera compared to other point and shoot products, I didn't expect much but I stopped and looked anyway. (My other camera is a Nikon SLR).10Ms? Leica lens? 25-200mm zoom? Video capability? Simple operation and compact size? All for less than $130? That was hard to believe. But I took a chance, and it's all true. It replaces my old Lumix (I dropped it and it kept on working for 2 years, then finally got weary), and replaces it in spades. The DMZ SC3 is a great little camera. Fast out of the pocket, and delivers good pictures.

                                        I purchased this inexpensive camera to take photos at the beach because I don't want to trash my digital SLR. Photos there were great. When I returned home I used the SZ3 to take photos of a friend shooting skeet. I was blown away by these photos. I could easily identify the clay fragments after they were broken into tiny pieces.My only complaint is that the USB charging must be performed with a proprietary Panasonic USB cable instead of a micro USB phone charger.

                                        Comments about Lumix DMC-SZ3 Digital Camera (Violet):

                                        I purchased the SZ3 to replace a more complex and irksome camera. This Lumix is hands down, the best Lumix we've owned. Simple from the get-go, even though there is no manual included. The images are superb for a little pocket camera. We couldn't be happier. Plus, B&H stands behind us every step of the way. Thanks Guys!
