Just Wondering if this is a decent Camera! propjob101 (0)::2009-07-16 9:15
I am just wondering what everyone thinks of the Lumix DMC LZ8 (Advance) P&S. A firnd of mine has one and I had the chance to take a few shots with it in manual mode which came out ok but what do you guys and gals think of this model. I like the 5x optical zoom on it.

There's a review right here.

That being said, it came out 2 years ago. It seems to have pretty good features but all in all lacks the potential and power of a digital slr. You're wiser to save up and get that, to be honest, unless a good 'used' deal can be found on eBay or somewhere similar. That may well be the case since the camera is an older issue.

If you can't afford a "real" digital reflex camera, the Lumix FZ8 does a very decent job. In spite of its limited features compared with a reflex camera, it appears to be a good compromise and provides for a good quality-price balance. I'm a happy user of it since two years.

I have been recently studying the differences in these superzoom cameras and have found quite a few very informative sites with reviews and comarisons in colour details, iso etc. Also youtube have high def. video and photo samples of the camera you mentioned.
