Panasonic Lumix LZ6

We've given the LZ6 a grade of C.

Editor's Review

The Panasonic LZ6 is an affordable easy-to-use entry-level camera, nearly identical to the Lumix LZ7 aside from a somewhat smaller LCD screen.The 7-megapixel sensor is the new mid-range benchmark, and will provide for high-resolution photos and large prints. Panasonic's MEGA Optical Image Stabilization will reduce blurs and jitters so you get the best possible shot every time. The LZ6 also features a unique 'Baby Mode,' which allows you to record the age of your child directly onto the photo. The camera also allows for normal timestamping as well.

Panasonic Lumix LZ6 Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

nice camera (tim — 10/19/2008)

This is the second point and shoot DC I have owned by Panasonic. These cameras take wonderful pictures if used right. Read the manual if you have little experience. I can tell you that the Oxyride batteries and most alkalines are useless in these cameras. The Eneloop rechargables are the only way to go made by Sanyo. They will pay for themselves in a week. The only other camera serious people should be buying in this sub $200 price range is a Canon.

No sound in movie mode (Joe Pryor — 09/28/2007)

I really liked this camera up until I recorded in movie mode...Where did the sound go? I thought I had my computer audio muted but I was wrong...Other than that the camera performed better than I expected for the price (149.00). I bought a 2 gig memory card and have not deleted any pics from it yet. Good pics and I even was able to take the camera off of auto and fine tuned it to my liking....Great camera for the price.

Where did the sound go? (Robert Sims — 07/04/2007)

I cannot believe that a digital camera is manufactured without audio for movie mode.
I bought this camera in a hurry while on vacation.
However I never realized that it did not have audio. Even our old 2.2 MP HP has audio.
I find that the MENU button is easily pressed by accident when handling the camera. I have had
many pictures taken out of focus.
Quality seems good but if you do any home movies on a computer, look else where for something with audio. The LX7 may be ok.
