Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ10 review

I bought this camera a couple days after it came out to use on vacation. Build quality was decent, though a bit flimsy/plasticky. It would have been nice if they had included a rubber grip. This camera has a plethora of features; O.I.S., Manual modes, a 30 mm wide angle, and a great LCD.

Sadly, I ended up returning the camera due to (in my opinion) terrible image quality. Pictures at ISO 100 were very grainy, so much so that pictures viewed at 11x14 had noticeable artifacts. Edges and details were not nearly as crisp as I would have hoped. The casual user will probably have no problems as long as they aren't pixel peeping. Oh well, the search for a compact continues!

Problems:

Poor, noisy images even at ISO 100
