Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Lumix DMC-SZ1, a part of the Lumix SZ-Series of digital cameras combines a powerful 10x optical zoom with a 25mm ultra-wide angle LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens, in a slim and compact body, making it extremely portable and easy to carry. The Lumix SZ1 (16.1 megapixels) features 720p HD video recording capabilities, and both models are easy to use thanks to Panasonic's popular iA (Intelligent Auto) mode which automatically chooses the best camera settings for natural, beautiful images.

Panasonic Lumix SZ1 Highlights

10x Optical Zoom in a Slim Body

The DMC-SZ1 features a powerful 10x optical zoom lens (35mm camera equivalent: 25-250mm). This gives you highly natural expressions from people and animals that you can't get close to. And its slim, compact body can easily go wherever you go – for both everyday snapshots and traveling. In addition, this single camera lets you record 10x optical zoom in video recording.

20x iA Zoom (Intelligent Zoom)

The iA Zoom (Intelligent Zoom) is an extensive zoom function using digital zoom, however, you can even draw the subject 2x closer than the original optical zoom with minimum deterioration of image quality thanks to the Intelligent Resolution technology. This means the 10x optical can virtually extend to 20x equivalent.

25mm Ultra Wide-angle Lens

The 25mm ultra wide-angle lens* has about twice the shooting area as a standard 35mm lens. This enhances all kinds of shooting situations, like when you're photographing a group of people at an indoor party or shooting a large structure or sweeping landscape while traveling.

*Converted to standard 35mm camera equivalent, at the wide-end.

New LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR Lens System

The new high-quality LEICA DC lens system is even more versatile with 25mm ultra wide-angle to powerful 10x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 25-250mm). Comprising 9 elements in 7 groups including 4 aspherical lenses with 6 aspherical surfaces, adoption of ultra thin lens for its new structure optical system makes the unit's overall length short to fit in the slim body despite its versatile zoom range from ultra wide to telephoto.

Passing Leica's stringent standards, the DMC-SZ1 boasts exceptional optical performance with stunning clarity with minimum distortion and flare.

MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer)

The MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) compensates for the blurring caused by hand-shake. Even slight hand-shake movement is accurately detected by a sampling frequency of 4,000 times per second, and compensated to produce sharp, clear images.

Shooting Modes

The Lumix SZ1 feature two new shooting modes – Miniature Effect and Panorama Shot. In Miniature Effect mode, the peripherals are defocused while saturation and contrast is emphasized to make the picture like a diorama. Video recorded in Miniature Effect mode is played back in 10x fast-forwarding, making it comical and fun to watch*1. Panorama Shot makes it possible to shoot a horizontal or vertical panoramic image by taking consecutive shots and then overlaying the photos for the effect of a panoramic photo. Furthermore, the Lumix SZ1 features Creative Retouch which includes six filters -Toy Effect, Soft Focus Dynamic Monochrome, Expressive, High Key and Retro, each of which give the photo a more artistic look. It also features an Auto Retouch function that adjusts contrast and brightness to give the photo a different look – all with a single press of the button.
*1 Sound will not be recorded with [MINIATURE EFFECT] in Creative Control Mode and approximately 1/10 of the time period is recorded. (If you record for 10 minutes, the resulting motion picture recording will be approximately 1 minute long)

iA (Intelligent Auto) Mode

To help ensure that the Lumix SZ1 is easy to use, it features Panasonic's popular iA (Intelligent Auto) mode. In iA mode, a suite of technologies are automatically engaged and the camera chooses the best setting based on the shooting environment. For instance, iA includes AF Tracking, Intelligent ISO Control, MEGA O.I.S., Face Detection, Intelligent Scene Selector and Intelligent Exposure.

Additional Features

  • 3.0-inch Intelligent LCD that automatically adjusts the backlight based on the environment's lighting
  • The Lumix SZ1 features a CCD sensor
  • USB power charging in addition to the conventional AC power supply
  • Dedicated video record button which lets users instantly start recording a video without having to make any extra settings. Additionally, the full 10x optical zoom is available in video recording mode
  • High-quality stereo sound via Dolby® Digital Stereo Creator accompanies the realistic HD videos. The stereo zoom microphone comes with zoom noise reduction system, and the Wind Cut function helps to block noise from background wind

(update on bottom)

First up, I actually own the DMC-SZ02 which is available at a certain store in my area founded by Sam Walton... :) I am 99.9% certain this is the exact same camera as the DMC-SZ1, please correct me if I`m wrong. But dont confuse either of these with the DMC-ZS1 (note the ZS and SZ difference), which is also available but quite different. Cant they get a little more creative with the product names?

I`ve owned and tried out many "pocket" cameras over the years. I`ve usually ended up with Casio Exilims, even though I have tried out Canon Elphs (just cant get myself to like the tiny Elph), Nikons (good features but poor pic quality), a Samsung (terrible) and even one other Lumix (can't remember why I didn't keep it) in the past. This Lumix is by far my favorite.

Granted that you must understand what you are getting with a pocket camera. They will not be top quality photos with everything intended to be framed as art. But they are more than fine for capturing many (I have thousands of) memories to be stored on the hard drive and you do get an occasional really nice bonus picture to print as an 8x10. The good thing is that you actually have it WITH you (I carry it in a smartphone leather holster, fits perfect) so that a semi-quality picture is better than NO pic because you didn't want to drag around a full size camera.

OK having said that, this camera is very impressive. The zoom especially stands out. I never imagined the zoom on a pocket camera could ever be improved this much. I found myself saying "Wow" many times after taking some test shots. Even the digital zoom turns out to be useful, when it fails miserably and is a joke on every other camera I`ve tried it on.

Let me qualify this and let me say that I don't know if this is this best camera, just an opinion.

First things first, in a basic sense of what you buy a camera for is to take sharp pictures. That it does so I am pleased.

Now the perks which are sort of neato mosquito: It does self stitching panoramic photos with out software, you change mode and hold the shutter button down and pan and it stitches away. This includes side to side as well as up and down like you would need for a tall building.
Another mode will decorate your picture with a frame, my favorite is the heart frame. It does baby scenes where you can have text of the name of the baby and his or her age in months and days. It automatically figures this out from the birth date.
All told there are 15 scenes.

Another feature which may come in handy is that it uses the new SDXC memory cards, a very high capacity card like 64 gig or 128 gig. So if are going to shoot a lot of video, you will be set. It records in the MP4 format. It has a separate shutter button for movies so you can shoot on the fly and not have to change modes. Who needs a separate video camera? It does let you zoom while shooting video.
You can also set the viewfinder screen to bright for when you are outside.

Summary: A great little handy, capable, and excellent camera. My wife has the Lumix DMC-FH25 Panasonic DMC-FH25K 16.1MP Digital Camera with 8x Wide Angle Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.7 inch LCD (Black) which if also a good camera (see reviews) but I like mine better.

BTW It will use after market batteries if price is a concern.

Color Name: Red Verified Purchase
I just received this camera and so far I am very impressed - normally I don't write reviews until I have had something a little bit longer but with so few reviews anywhere on the internet...... When you first open the Amazon box you are struck with how tiny the box it comes in is- and then you open the box for the camera! The thing is definitely pocket-sized but not flimsy! The metal body feels very sturdy and very well made. The pictures that it takes with any of the settings are all fantastic - with or without the zoom. The intelligent auto (iA) mode does a great job discerning what is required of the shot. I am also very impressed with the 10x zoom and the 20x digital zoom. It is however lacking in that you cannot choose a lot of the "scene" features, they are chosen for you in iA, if you are looking for a point and shoot that you have the ability to control more- look at something more along the lines of my other camera- Canon PowerShot SX200IS. Overall I think it is going to be a great camera that I can put in my back pocket, not worry about taking to Disney World but yet get some amazing pictures by just pushing a button - all for less than $200.

Color Name: Silver Verified Purchase
The more expensive (and powerful) ZS20 is currently the best-selling point and shoot on Amazon, but most shooters will achieve equally satisfying images from the equally high-rated (and recommended by Consumer Reports), smaller and less expensive Panasonic SZ1, while enjoying longer battery life (the touch-controls of the ZS20 take a significant toll). As for other Panasonic choices, the prices of the DMC-FH25/27 and the newer (by one year) DMC-SZ1 are practically identical, but the SZ1 has a wider-angle lens (25mm vs 28mm), a longer telephoto lens (10X optical/20X digital vs. 8X zoom; ), and is even lighter (5oz. vs. 6oz). Moreover, "Consumer Reports," in rating the SZ1 above the DMC-FH27, gives the advantage to the SZ1 in the following areas: improved image stabilization; better audio quality (mono) during video use; dramatically faster start-up time (almost instant with the SZ1); a brighter and larger LCD screen (3" vs. 2.7" for the FM25 and 2.9" for FH27's touch-screen).

Panasonic Lumix SZ1 vs. Panasonic SZ7:

The SZ7 was released within days of the SZ1, and the price differential between the two cameras is less than expected (currently approx. $40). Dimensions and weight are virtually identical. The SZ7 offers 1080p HD movie mode; the SZ1 has 720p HD (a noticeable difference only if you plan on showing movies on a 50" screen or larger). The SZ7 has a stereo microphone; the SZ1 has a monaural mic (an imperceptible difference when separation is this minimal). The SZ7 advertises speeds of up to 10 sharp images per second at full resolution; the SZ1 is less than two images per sec (but at 2 megapixels sharper than the SZ7). What isn't clarified is that the SZ1 also permits speeds of 10 images per second but at a resolution of 3mp instead of 16.
