Editor's Review

The Panasonic ZR1 is a compact point-and-shoot camera with an impressive 8x optical zoom lens and 12.1-megapixel sensor, providing a robust image-taking experience. That lens, while long, is also wide, with 25mm wide-angle capabilities as well. The ZR1 also has a high-definition movie mode capable of shooting video clips at 720p, 30fps.

Terrible low light performance! (IndyDave — 06/16/2010)
I was very quickly disappointed with the low light performance. Like, the first day I got it. This is in comparison to a Canon TX-1 which I have had for years and hasn't been available for quite some time. I really regret that my girlfriend spent her hard earned money to buy it for me. I haven't been able to bring myself to tell her how disappointed I am. If you have plenty of light, it seems to be average. But in low light, yuck! I am used to digital cameras having grainy images (without flash) and videos in low light, and I'm OK with that. It is to be expected. But the ZR1's low-light output is simply not useable. I am intimately familiar with all the various settings, but no getting over the basic trouble. If I have plenty of light, I take it over my TX-1 because it is smaller and does fine in the best of settings. I will probably take this places normally reserved for a ruggedized camera and risk breaking it. When it breaks, I won't be too disappointed.
