Gadget Pr0n: Panasonic Lumix LZ10 Camera »

Get your gadget fix three times a week, every Monday, Thursday and Friday right here on TheFeed. Today’s technological marvel is the Panasonic Lumix LZ10 Camera. Here’s what Attack of the Show’s Kevin Pereira had to say about it…

Panasonic Lumix LZ10 Camera

What You Need to Know

  • From the minute you pick it up, you know it's not going to be a cheap camera
  • A little bulky and kind of a strange form factor, but it has a sturdy all-metal design
  • Menus were really easy to navigate with the directional pad
  • 2 or 3 different ways to get to the same menu option so nothing was confusing
  • There is the "intelligent auto" setting which detects the best scene mode, and "intelligent ISO" which reduces blur if your subject is moving
  • Both work well and produce good pictures, but it slows down your picture taking speed a bit
  • Lots of manual controls too like aperture and shutter priority, but no manual focus
  • It can detect up to 15 faces at once
  • It detects a face, draws a little box around him or her even when they are moving, and adjusts focus and exposure so you can get the best portrait possible
    Low light pictures were a crap shoot; they blurred or were soft unless the flash hit just right
  • Normal to bright light pictures turned out great; plenty of detail and vivid colors


  • If you have $200 and no more to spend on a digital camera, this is an excellent choice
  • If you can splurge on the extra $50, buy the Canon Powershot SD1100
