The Panasonic DMC LZ1 is a four megapixel digital camera. The feature that makes it stand out from the crowd is its 6x optical zoom lens. This is twice the standard length. It is a very easy to use model and the DMC LZ1 is very reasonably priced when you take into account its lens size. It is likely to appeal to anyone who is looking for a straightforward point and shoot digital camera with increased zoom capabilities.

This camera also has optical image stabilisation to help combat blur caused by camera shake.
