Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Lumix DMC-SZ7, 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 SZ7 has 14.1 megapixels and can also shoot full-High Definition, 1920 x 1080 60i videos and with Light Speed AF, it has a super-fast focus response time of approximately 0.1 second – making it easy to capture spontaneous must-have photos.

Panasonic Lumix SZ7 Highlights

Shooting Modes
The Lumix SZ7 features 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 SZ7 feature 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. This camera 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 SZ7 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 the new High Dynamic Range, Intelligent Handheld Nightshot and Motion Deblur together with AF Tracking, Intelligent ISO Control, MEGA O.I.S., Face Recognition, Intelligent Scene Selector and Intelligent Exposure.

Additional Features

  • 3.0-inch Intelligent LCD that automatically adjusts the backlight based on the environment's lighting
  • MOS sensor to support full-HD video
  • USB power charging in addition to the conventional AC power supply
  • 3D Photo Mode allows the user to take 20 panning shots and then the camera automatically selects the two most suitable images – one for the right eye and one for the left eye – to synthesize a 3D composite.
  • 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

I am very satisfied with Lumix DMC-SZ7 digital camera. Its small size makes it easy to slip into a pocket. The 10x zoom works well in both still and movie mode. Unlike other cameras I have used I hear no noise from the zoom mechanism in the movie audio during the replay. Auto focus and image stabilization work well. Previously I used the physically larger DMC-ZS7 camera which included an internal GPS to record position coordinates with the picture. I never used the GPS tagging. The smaller size of the newer SZ7 is far more convenient for me.

I was disappointed that Panasonic chose to not include a separate battery charger with the SZ7. Instead, the charger is built into the camera with power supplied by a USB cable. I did some digging and found that other Lumix cameras use the same battery as the SZ7, model DMW-BCK7. Those cameras list Panasonic battery charger model DE-A91BA as an accessory. This charger plugs into an AC wall outlet and has a receptacle that holds the battery being charged. I ordered one of these from Amazon and it charged the SZ7's battery. I can now continue to use the camera with a second battery while the other battery is in the DE-A91BA charger.

I have tried probably 10 cameras between $120 and $250 over the past few months, looking for myself and my wife each a new camera.

Through stores and by borrowing from friends and family, I understand what is out there, and let me tell you there are several duds and a few winners, but most are very competent outdoors, with decent indoor video if you dont compare to a $400 vidcam, and only passable for low light.

That being said, I now own a Lumix ZS15 (grade A-) and this SZ7 (B+) is for my wife who uses iAuto mostly.

This SZ7 beats Canon Elph300 (B) and SX160 (B+ but heavy), Samsung PL210(B or B-) Sony HX70(B-), and Nikon 6300 (B-).

PROS: Very good Auto results, good Program Mode (SZ7 calls it Normal mode ).
Very usable low-light no-flash with Auto, and even better if you use the "Scene" mode called "Hi-Sensitivity" set at 3mp... where you can get speeds set by the camera according to conditions - speeds from ISO 2000 all the way to 6400!! Sure, some other cameras will push ISO (also at lower mp's ), but usually only with a single jump from 1600 to 3200, with no stops in between, and nothing above 3200! Granted, these high ISO pics will be grainy, but so were the old film cameras with pushed ISO. You will have a photo when no one else could get their under-$200 camera to capture any picture at all !
Very good outdoor video, and better than most indoor video, with no hiss.
Very good zoom - better than any other camera in its price range by a lot - very smooth and with no clicking recorded into the audio.

CONS:- Flash underpowered.

This is my sixth Panasonic Lumix, I like to upgrade now and then and when I saw Panasonic came out with an affordable MOS sensor camera I had to have it. OK, it doesn't have full manual control like other Lumix cameras I've owned, but I rarely used the manual settings other than Aperture Priority to get a blurred background. Intelligent Auto (iA) is normally where I leave the setting anyhow.

Features of this camera I love:
-- WOW! Fastest camera I've ever owned, not only on start-up, but SUPER fast shutter response, and fast recycling to take the next photo.
-- Leica lens, one of the best lens manufacturers.
-- You can optically zoom during the video.
-- The size is not TOO small, yet not too big - JUST RIGHT! This is a small camera, but not what I consider to be an ultra-compact where there is NO place to grab onto, those tiny ultra-compact cameras are too easy to drop! This SZ7 is the perfect size.
-- Metal body - although it feels like plastic, I read on another site that it's aluminum, good build quality.
-- Fantastic photos, HD videos in stereo!
-- Pretty decent in low light settings.
-- Miniature Effect: I find I use this quite a lot for a blurred background.
-- Panoramic feature is the best I've used.

Features I'm not crazy about but I can learn to live with:
-- Black is the only color choice here, I'm tired of black cameras.
-- A mode dial on top would have been nice, instead of menus, at least there is a separate movie button on top.
-- No separate battery charger, this is the first Panasonic camera I've owned where the battery is charged inside the camera, it must be a cost-cutting measure for Panasonic.

I really don't understand some of these reviewers. They buy a nice little point and shoot digital camera and expect it to have the features of a five thousand dollar SLR and high end video all in one. This camera is inexpensive, compact, and produces great pictures indoors without a flash. It also compensates for uneven lighting. I used it outdoors to take pictures of Christmas decorations -- it was perfect. I used it indoors to take pictures of gatherings of long-lost relatives. It was perfect with or without a flash. Macro was perfect and zoom was perfect. Sure you can't take 300 pictures without a battery recharge and you can't zoom in on something miles away. Maybe you can't make a huge poster from a picture of a bumblebee taken from ten feet away. But there is really no shutter lag and the pictures really look good. This camera doesn't pretend to be something it's not and people who want it to be something it's not have their head in the sand. It's a nice little camera perfect for those quick capture moments that are so often missed because you're busy with all the dials on your fancy Mount Olympus whatever superzoom SLRs. There is a battery indicator so you know up front when you need to recharge AND there is only one cord for downloading pictures and recharging right in the camera. If you want a spare charger and battery it's available as well. Granted, if you want to use this camera during a category five hurricane outdoors to film your opus, it will probably not do the job. For those who complain about the detailed users manual only being available on line -- I don't use all of those fancy features anyway and the users manual included in the box had enough info for me. Bottom line: I like it!
