Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 ... SDHC - black / Panasonic's DMC-TZ3 is a member of the award-winning Lumix TZ family of digital cameras, which is renowned for packaging a remarkable 10x optical zoom in a compact, stylish body. To further add to their appeal, the TZ3 goes one step further to feature a 28mm wide-angle Leica DC lens for wide-angle shooting.
The 28mm wide-angle lens opens up a plethora of photographic opportunities, allowing photographers to easily capture a large group of people, or expansive architectural structures and landscapes with dynamic width and rich perspective. The wide-angle lens is particularly helpful in situations where you cannot step back or move away from a subject - ideal for shooting group portraits in a small room for example.
The diminutive size of the 7.2 megapixel DMC-TZ3 belies the wealth of technological features. Incorporating a powerful 10x optical zoom in such a slim and stylish body is impressive in itself. Add to this the incorporation of Panasonic's Mega O.I.S that prevents blurring from shaky hands, Intelligent ISO to prevent motion blur, and the high quality, high performance image-processing Venus Engine III to name but a few - and the caliber of these additions becomes apparent.
The advanced lens unit passes Leica's stringent standards and delivers an exceptional optical performance. To further add to their appeal, the zoom ratio can be extended up to 15x in 3 megapixel resolution mode with minimal deterioration thanks to the Extra Optical Zoom. By using the central part of the CCD, this powerful zooming function allows you to easily capture and magnify distant subjects. Furthermore, in combination with the 4x digital zoom, a zoom factor of up to 60x can be achieved.

What an amazing little camera! It has so many functions, I suppose it could be a little confusing at first, but the booklet is full of tips on taking the best pictures. It's very stylish, and a handy size. I love the x10 zoom, one of the best for a camera of it's class. It's great for preventing those blurry photos due to shaking hands. It has a huge screen on the back, though it has no viewfinder - personally I don't find that a problem. The rechargeable battery lasts for approx. 400 pics. It really is such a great little camera for it's ... Read the complete review

I purchased this abroad in the summer of 2007 and remember paying around £200 for it. Before that I'd used disposables or film cameras. The camera was pretty new having only been announced at the end of January of the same year. I was a complete noob and didn't know much about cameras, viewing this one that the sales assistant was trying to sell to me with great scepticism. I finally bought it and soon used it very regularly, I also got the extra surprise of receiving some freebies with purchase: lovely camera case, wipes, miniature tripod... It has a lovely Leica lens with the camera being one of the best zoom cameras back then for this size at 10x optical ... Read the complete review

There are many technical details about this item attached to the details, so I will only go into minor detail about those. I couldn't decide whether to buy an SLR or a super-duper compact camera. My reason for choosing this? I knew I couldn't be bothered to take a whopping great camera out with me every time I went to an event or was in a beautiful landscape. I wanted something powerful, neat, compact and easy to transport. As far as size goes it is 10cm x 6.5 cm big and about 4cm wide, so a bit chunkier than the compact diigital cameras you can buy. I wouldn't buy this if you want something slim and lightweight as I think the design is ... Read the complete review

Had this camera for a couple of years now and had no problems with it. The 10 x optical zoom is a big plus and as cameras go it is very easy to navigate through the menu options. The camera has two clever functions, the ability to brighten the screen at a touch of a button which allows you to see the image in bright sunlight, and secondly the ability to change the picture angle to allow you to still easily see the image if your holding the camera above your head. The large screen does sit slightly raised and so more prone to scratches and scuffs. Battery life is really good and an energy saving option turns the display off, if no buttons are ...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 is the best camera I have ever owned! I originally bought it as I went to New Foundland on holiday and was disappointed with the pictures I got from my camera that only had a 4x optical zoom so I vowed that when I got home I would find a camera with a better zoom. I went into several camera shops requesting a camera with a 10x zoom and they all recommended this one. The camera comes with a 28mm wide angle Leica lens and I have now owned it for a couple of years and I absolutely love it, obviously I bought it for the zoom but it does so much more than that - it has a large 3inch LCD screen, a dial on top of the camera giving you ...
