Panasonic DMC-SZ10 Overview

  • 1Description

The Lumix DMC-SZ10 Digital Camera from Panasonic is a compact camera with a 16MP image sensor for high-resolution photos and HD 1280 x 720p video recording. Its 12x optical zoom lens has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 24-288mm, covering wide to telephoto perspectives. Built-in optical image stabilization reduces the appearance of camera shake which is helpful when shooting at long zoom settings or in low-light situations. The camera's 2.7" 460k-dot LCD monitor tilts up 180°, making it easy to compose and shoot selfies.

Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity lets you connect the SZ10 to your smartphone or tablet by simply displaying a QR code on the camera screen and scanning it with your device. The Panasonic Image App allows you to use your smart device to control the camera's zoom, focus, and shutter. It can also instantly upload images to your favorite social media sites using your compatible smartphone or tablet.

Have Fun with Selfies
Simply tilt the monitor up 180° and optimal selfie settings are automatically made. Soft Skin, Slimming, and Defocusing modes help create better, more distinctive selfies. The large 2.7" approximately 460k-dot monitor lets you share the fun with family and friends too.
Beauty Modes
Three imaging effects give you more expressive selfies. Soft Skin mode makes skin look brighter and smoother, Slimming mode sharpens facial lines, and Defocusing mode keeps you clearly focused while gently softening the background.
Geotagging
Tag the location information to the image by utilizing the GPS log of a smartphone / tablet and share it to your preferred social media.
720p HD Video Recording

    Panasonic DMC-SZ10 Reviews

    Lumix DMC-SZ10 Digital Camera is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 34.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok camera for the discounted price I bought a bunch for asocial event, I needed something easy to use (no need to read the manual for basic use) not expensive and decent. it' fits the bill but no more. it has a noticeable lag when you shoot and at or close to max zoom the VR and focusing start to show some shortcomings. quality of the photo is ok.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good photography on a budget The performance of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ10 is overall good. If you are looking for a camera with easy to follow instructions, editing effects, and pretty good settings this is the camera for you. This is a camera that you can use for amateur photography. The quality of the camera is very good compared to the promotional price I paid for the camera. The camera effects are off the chain. The resolution of the software is good.Thanks B&H Photo Video! However, the camera itself gets three stars. It doesn't work as well when you try to zoom. And for more professional pictures it is not a good camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice simple camera I' been taking pics since I was 6 years old, I bought this for a none photographer friend. She's 20 and uses her phone, so the features I thought she needed, were wifi. tilting screen (for the low shots) and face forward screen for selfies. At this price I didnt see anything else with these features.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm Satisfied A novice here so this won't apply to the average user. The camera works great for my needs which are simple photos and an occasional video. The only dislike is videos have a short time before ending automatically. Added a 32gb memory card and that is more than enough capacity. Glad I bought it. Also, had a question which required a call to Panasonic customer service and they were very helpful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Camera for the Price! I needed a small point and shoot and have had good luck with Panasonic Lumix cameras. Couldn't believe the $ price. Didn't expect much but couldn't pass up the deal. Wow! Pleasantly surprised. Great camera. Not as much zoom as my 20X DMC-ZS25 but 12X isn't bad. Does everything my other Lumix does (got dust on the sensor and would cost more to fix that the camera cost) and then some. Most amazing thing is the Wi-Fi! Love it! Took remote photos including zooming in and out with my Smartphone. I'm no technie and this was easy to set up. Best $ I ever spent. Love the camera!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid camera for the price Nice camera for the price. Shoots excellent video and nice photos. The zoom dial is a little inconvenient, but not horrible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great choice for a camera This camera is great. The window view from the back works amazing. The remote Bluetooth is fantastic from your phone for surprise shots or group shots. For the price this camera is perfect

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. I bought this camera as a gift for my niece, she loves it. The video and picture taking are great. She really likes the flip up view finder for taking selfies.

    question

    What are the physical dimensions of this camera? Height and Width should be easy. Depth would vary from the body to the body to the end of the retracted lens. Thanks.

    question

    This camera does not have a lumix lens. Is this significant?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Panasonics less expensive cameras tend not to have a Lumix or Leica lens. These lenses wouldnt be the same quality as found in the more expensive Panasonic point and shoots. That being said, the SZ10 is still a great option for a point and shoot in its price range.
