Customer Reviews of Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS10 14.1 Megapixel Digital Camera with 16X Optical Zoom Lens, GPS Function, 3" Touchscreen LCD, SIlver
Everything went well. The camera arrived in fine condition one day sooner than had been promised.
Incredible Value at $1792/28/2012
Per my experience with other Panasonic cameras, including a predecessor DMC-ZS7, the manual controls for aperture and others do not really perform as expected (or perform at all). However, the "P" Program setting provides very good resolution, with photos that can be cropped to a surprising extent. The Leica lens, CMOS sensor and Venus Engine seem to make a great difference in photo quality. Clearance of this model for the next at $179 is an unbelievable value.
I am deligthed with the camera so far but it will take time to learn how to use all of the additional capabilities.
I am a semi-professional photographer, and wanted a small travel camera to go along with my DSLR. I have owned Panasonic's TZ1, TZ5, ZS3, ZS6. The ZS6 was a disappointment regarding low light image quality. I purchased the ZS10 after I looked at the new specs, and saw that they changed the sensor and added the Handheld Nightshot Mode. This new model is amazing! The low light photos are clean and have low level noise as compared to the ZS6 and ZS3. I was able to use manual mode as well to accomplish some tricks in the field, such as smoothing a waterfal while maintaining the proper scene exposure. I love the other mode settings I can manipulate, such as the white balance and easier EV settings. I've gotten some great shots with that, including improved food shots in Aperture Priority Mode, over using the scene selection for Food, which turned out a little blurry (which may be my fault of being too close). The lense quality is simply amazing. The detail in the photos is remarkable. I would highly recommend this camera. If you would like to see a few shots, send me a message with your email address and I'll put a few photos together for you to compare and help make your decision.
