Amazon Deal of the Day

£129.99@ Argos
The DMC-LZ30 features 25mm wide-angle lens with a 35x optical zoom (35mm camera equivalent: 25-875mm). The Extra Optical Zoom function extends zoom power to 78.8x (at 3-megapixel resolution) by using the centre part of the 16-megapixel high resolution CCD to bring subjects even closer. Not only drawing near the subject distant away, the 25mm ultra wide-angle lens captures wider angle of view compared with a standard 35mm camera.

Did they beat you to it?

Is this better than the Lumix DMC-ZS3 (10.1MP, 12x Optical Zoom, 25mm Wide Angle, Panaroma Shot, HD Video) which I got for £250 four years ago in 2009? It was the cheapest price at that time and bought it from Hong Kong using ebay. It was the first time I purchased from out of EU and had to pay 20 quid VAT+customs+handling fee to courier. Learnt my lesson and never bought anything overseas ever again!

Specs aren't everything, so is this any good? Looks kind of bulky and reviews are mixed.

Mine is this small:

You can buy 4 rechargeable batteries and a charger for about £10.

So you could take photos that aren't quite framed properly, because you weren't looking through the camera lens when you took them with your viewfinder? :P

I'm just messing, sorry couldn't help myself.

Photo blog says image issues 3star

Looks nice

Very good find. Thanks!

nice but you can't use optical zoom on video recording

Great thanks, used the AMEX5OFF code to make are it even cheaper!

does this have an automatic mode?

is that what it is called? I am not camera savvy but want a camera i can leave on tripod which will take pics automatically with a timer.

If only it had a viewfinder, a complete deal breaker for me. But for others who might not need one, it's a great price, so heat added!!

This is a great camera for the price.

Great price for a above average camera. I had the Panasonic FZ18 when it first came out. It took great pictures for an 8 megapixel + 18x optical zoom camera. It still does today as I gave it to my nephew.

I'm now looking to buy the Panasonic FZ72 which has a 60x Optical zoom....Which will be great for my travels....

This is the exact reason why I was forced to buy my DMC-ZS3 (pictured above) from Hong Kong.

European law don't allow cameras to have zoom during video recording if you can record longer than 30 minutes (was 15 min back then), otherwise they are classes as "video recorders" and not "cameras".

This is done because of higher import tax on "video recorders" which would result in higher cost of product to end user.

To keep costs low for end user, Panasonic have put a recording limit on videos that contain zoom functionality.

So you have two options here:

* Video contains zoom function but limited to 30 min recording
* Video does not contain zoom function and has unlimited recording limit (limited by disk space).


If you buy from outside of EU, then there is no limit. But be prepared to pay higher costs and also VAT and custom fees like I did for the DMC-ZS3.

BTW, if you buy a camera with limited recording from outside the EU, the camera models changes, but the functionality remains the same (except the recording limit).

Yes it does. Very easy to use. As well as having auto mode it has lost of other modes ie, landscspe, portrait, night time, macro etc.

amazing price for a fantastic bit of kit, thanks for sharing

Excellent price
