I was assembling these pictures for another purpose when I realized that I had never done a full post on this camera: A Panasonic Lumix ZS-3.

I had bought a Panasonic Lumix LX-3 in 2010. I really liked it and it had a nice 24-60mm lens, but I felt I needed something with more reach, so I purchased this Lumix ZS-3 with its 25–300 mm lens. I was still comparatively new to digital cameras at the time and didn’t realize that both of these cameras (and particularly this one, which has an even smaller sensor than the LX-3) have a very small sensor and all of the problems with image quality that come with that. Still if you work within its limitations you can get some decent pictures and I really liked the small size and long zoom range.
