Editor's Review

An evolutionary upgrade from Panasonic's GF3, the GF5 is also pointed at point and shoot users looking for better image quality. It's a very small camera even with the stabilized 14-42 power zoom lens attached, a much smaller lens than Olympus' 14-42. Upgrades include a higher resolution screen, better grip on the front, upgraded 12 megapixel CMOS sensor that shoots up to ISO 12800, and some new creative modes. It's a little more money than we'd like to see at release, $749 for the kit, but the very fast autofocus may make that extra cash worth it.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 Reviews

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5 Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

If you're trying to find a camera with a longer zoom range and image stabilization for a cost that's relatively inexpensive, Panasonic has a selection of cameras that will get the job done. Without a doubt, this helps the Panasonic digital cameras fulfill the requirements of photographers who need versatility in small packages. Offering something for amateurs and serious enthusiasts at the same time, Panasonic offers a wide range of digital cameras, from ultra compacts to mirrorless cameras. Every camera has its own distinctive features and traits, which make them difficult to compare.

Panasonic cameras are ideal for consumers that enjoy using automatic modes. The camera will automatically choose the perfect scene mode for the desired subject using the iAuto feature, which is included in almost all Panasonic cameras currently developed. This feature, in combination with image stabilization will really help beginners take photos that look great.

By providing users with easy access to settings, reviews are correct in saying that Panasonic cameras are created for maximum user friendliness. Should you choose a Panasonic camera, you will discover that it possesses an LCD screen, an optical zoom lens which is very versatile, and is both lightweight and reasonably compact.

The Panasonic Lumix ZS20 is one of the many notably excellent choices among Panasonic cameras. A GPS tracker, a 20x optical zoom lens, and image stabilization that will make sure your pictures are steady even when you're using maximum zoom are several of the features that make this camera a popular choice. Panasonic has included manual modes but the automatic modes and iAuto mode make the camera a perfect choice for amateurs as well. Image quality is quite competitive, too, although not the best on the market.
