The ZS10 delivers the reliably excellent image quality we've come to expect from Panasonic's pocket ultrazooms, but a finicky touchscreen may not appeal to some users.
The new Panasonic Lumix ZS10 is the successor to last year's very popular ZS7. Though the ZS7 was a best seller, it had a few shortcomings that consumers took notice of and spoke up about what they thought it needed improvement-wise. Panasonic listened and evidently tailored the ZS10 to meet those expectations. How does the ZS10 differ from its illustrious predecessor? The ZS7 was a 12 megapixel digicam, while the ZS10 boasts 15 megapixel maximum resolution. The ZS7 featured a 12x (25mm-300mm equivalent) Leica zoom, while the ZS10 features a 16x (24-384mm equivalent) Leica zoom.
The ZS10 captures images and video via a new MOS image sensor (the ZS7 utilized a CCD image sensor) and the ZS7's slower-than-the-competition continuous shooting mode has been noticeably improved. The GPS landmark database and lookup features have also been substantially expanded and the ZS10 captures 1080i HD video (the ZS7 captured video at a maximum resolution of 720p). Other new features include slow motion video, composite noise reduction and a 3D capture mode for those who want to view their stuff on a 3D TV.
