Do you want the flexibility of interchangeable lenses with the burden of being weighed down by a bulky DSLR camera? The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 is part of a new breed of cameras known as compact Micro Four Thirds (MFT). The idea of these cameras is to combine the quality of DSLR cameras like the Canon T3 with the portability of point and shoot cameras. Bridge cameras like the Canon Powershot SX10IS already fill this gap in them market but they have their limitations, the main one being the lack of interchangeable lenses. What the Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3 offers is a compact, lightweight camera body that has an interchangeable lens system.
Are you looking for a camera with an advanced zoom that you can still carry around easily in your bag? The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS10 is similar to other pocket cameras in the Panasonic series in terms of size, but this camera boasts a really advanced zoom that pushes it way ahead of other pocket cameras. Although it is thicker than the new ultra-slim point and shoot cameras like the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W350, the 16X optical zoom or 21X digital zoom on this camera blows the DSC-W350 out of the water.
Panasonic’s Lumix DMC –ZS3 offers lots of interesting features like a 12x zoom lens and 720p ACXHD video capture all packed into a stylish, compact body. This camera gives you amazing photo quality, it performs faster than the previous model and the wider angle lens is a solid improvement. This camera is available in four colors – blue, sliver, black and red.
Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-LX5 is a much anticipated update to the relatively old enthusiast compact camera, Panasonic's LX3. This latest camera looks very much like the previous model but is much more advanced, especially under the hood. This camera includes a new sensor which has a larger zoom range, perfect for taking on vacation and to sporting events. It has improved noise reduction quality and much better video quality.
Point and shoot cameras are amazingly versatile, compact and easy to use, but their downside is usually that they don’t start up fast enough or that the long shutter lag stops you catching the action. Point and shoot cameras can let you down. However, Panasonic have been working on this problem and have brought us the superbly fast Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 12megapixel camera with massive 12x optical image stabilized zoom and 3.0-Inch LCD.
