The Panasonic Lumix DMC SZ1 is one of the smallest digital cameras you will find offering 10x zoom. You should have no problem slipping this camera into more or less any pocket. It is also easy to use and operates like a straightforward point and shoot digital camera.
Although the long lens and small size are likely to be the main attractions of the Lumix DMC SZ1 is it also capable of shooting High Definition movies. Panasonic have built image stabilisation into the camera to minimise unwanted picture blur. For close up shots the Lumix DMC SZ1 is able to focus from 5cm away from your subject.
As well as the more obvious ability to zoom in on more distant subjects the Lumix DMC SZ1 has enough flexibility to squeeze wider scenes into your shots. This gives you plenty of versatility meaning you can capture just about any every day photo opportunity.
