HX20v vs Lumix ZS3
May 1, 2012

Apples to oranges, and unfair, but I had fun anyway!

My HX20v arrived today, and I fired it right up and shot some comparison shots with the pocket camera it will be replacing, the Lumix ZS3. Here are the comparisons with some comments.

Although these were my last shots, I'll start with them - a view of downtown Salt Lake City at night.

These next two were macros of clockworks within a glass sphere. It looks like the ZS3 chose to focus on dust on the sphere rather than the clockworks themselves.

Difference in the flash between the two cameras.

Some Color Differences.

Some color and clarity differences.

And now for the dramatic difference in zoom reach. (I know. I know. If it wasn't dramatic, I'd be demanding my money back!)
