Panasonic Lumix ZS10 Pocket Superzoom Camera ReviewThe Panasonic Lumix ZS10 is what I call a pocket superzoom camera – it fits in your pocket and it’s got a ton of zoom – a 16x 24-384mm image-stabilized Leica zoom lens, to be exact. That’s a crazy amount of lens reach – especially for a camera that fits in the pocket of your Levis. Because they’re so versatile and easy to carry, pocket superzooms like the ZS10 are my favorite kind of point-and-shoot camera. Panasonic introduced the first pocket superzoom, the TZ1, back in the spring of 2006. Since then, the cameras have gotten a lot smaller and better. The ZS10 has a dizzying number of features, including AVCHD full HD video, a 3-inch touchscreen LCD display, built in GPS and 3D shooting. It even has full manual exposure controls for the more experienced photographers who want them!

    I forgot to include this in the review so I thought I’d just add it as a comment. If you like the features, size and performance of the Panasonic ZS10 but the $350 street price is a bit steep for your wallet, check out the Panasonic ZS8. It’s basicallly the same camera as the ZS10 but without the built-in GPS and for about $100 less. So if you don’t care about GPS-tagging in your photos or you can’t afford the ZS10, the ZS8 is the way to go.
