Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ1 review

This is my first digital camera and I did quite some research before buying it. I was between the Canon PowerShot A520 and this Panasonic, but kept this mostly because of more zoom (6x) and the optical image stabilizer. The camera has really nice picture quality, the flash works nice and it's really easy to use.
I'm very happy with it.


Under low light conditions, it's a little hard to get nice shots since the shutter speed is automatic and slow. The image stabilizer helps, but with a shutter speed of 1/8, moving objects may leave a track or appear blurry.
Besides that, everything else was fine. It would be good if it had some more manual controls (shutter and aperture).
