Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ3 Preview

By

Panasonic_Lumix_SZ3_blk.jpgAmong their lifeproof and super-zoom announcements, Panasonic also introduced a new ultra-compact digicam; the Lumix DMC-SZ3. While this camera can easily fit into the pants pocket of your skinny jeans, it surprisingly packs some heat with a 10x Leica DC optical zoom lens and burst shooting up to 10fps.

Other than that, the SZ3 is a pretty basic 16-megapixel digicam, offering 720p HD video recording, MEAG O.I.S. stabilization, a 2.7-inch LCD, and Intelligent Auto exposure control.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ3 features:
  • 16.1-megapixel image sensor
  • 10x Leica DC optical zoom lens
  • MEGA O.I.S. image/video stabilization
  • 720p HD video recording 
  • Various exposure options, including Intelligent Auto, Program AE, Aperture priority, Shutter priority, full Manual, etc.
  • New Creative Control and Retouch features
  • 10fps burst shooting
  • 2.7-inch LCD
  • Li-ion battery pack

The Lumix SZ3 will come in Black, Blue, or White, and should start shipping at the end of March, 2013. Pricing is to be announced at a later date.
