Panasonic has created a winner in the point and shoot "zoom" category with the Lumix DMC-TZ5. Almost a year later, we were given the Lumix DMC-ZS1 and DMC-ZS3. (On the European market is known as TZ6 and TZ7 respectively. Am I alone in thinking that pursuit of the "TZ" brand have been more logical? ZS2 And why not?)

This article compares and ZS1 The Lumix ZS3.

Beginning with the basic specifications that are identical in two chambers:

  • 10.1 megapixels
  • 12x zoom range (25-300mm)
  • The optical image stabilization
  • ISO Range 80-6400
  • 27 places with Intelligent Auto
  • Better image quality score among digital compacts with similar characteristics (

The characteristics that are different (vs. ZS1 ZS3):

  • LCD display – 2.7 "(230k resolution) and 3.0 "(460k)
  • Image Sensor – 1/2.5 "vs 1/2.33"
  • Video – 848×480 30fps video w / mono VS 720p 60fps video with stereo sound

Regarding the image quality and image printing, in a comparison test against other super-zoom cameras, ZS1 and ZS3 were double winners in the

The last word from those who bought the device for use staff. After all, the consumer has the final word on satisfaction.

Check the user comments for and, both Houses value highly – at least 4.16 out of 5. In fact, Amazon, the nominal Lumix ZS1 an impressive 4.67 (out of 5).

As you make your digital camera buying decision, keep the Panasonic Lumix ZS1 and ZS3 in mind. And do not forget about the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5, which has the same features as the more expensive ZS3 with respect to video and image quality (there have been some upgrades to the way video is recorded in the ZS3 that take up less storage space and give the user an option as to the recording mode, but the TZ5 video is comparable to its newer sibling). Picking up the TZ5 would produce a savings of more than $150.
