Smallest 10X Zoom Camera Has Big Features

Panasonic DMC-TZ1

DPReview.com has just published their review of the Panasonic DMC-TZ1, the world’s smallest optically stabilized 10X zoom camera. Weighing in at a half of a pound, the TZ1 is not a true pocket camera, but the reviewer rightfully points out that it is much smaller than other “SLR-like” cameras with similar specs.

And although the TZ1 seems to suffer from a dirth of manual controls, it is rich with features, including: 5.0 million effective pixels, 10x (35-350mm equiv.) Leica DC Vario-Elmarit optical zoom, MEGA OIS image stabilization, Venus III Engine processor, Fast Linear autofocus system, High Resolution (270,000 pixel) 2.5-inch LCD, Movies up to 840 x 480 pixels (WVGA) @ 30 fp, and 18 scene modes.

Does its plethora of features make up for its diminutive size?
