What would you give the LZ10 out of 10?
Since I don't have any personal experience with the LZ10, I can't answer the question.
The Resolution Test
I just got one 7/14/2008. The reason I chose it: The image stabilization, the lens has high 5x (up to 8 in extra optical zoom) optical zoom plus decent wide angle. I liked the high iso, manual capability, several metering and exposure options, easy to use, compact, uses AA batteries. Good video perfomance.
I went back and forth between the LZ8 and the Canon A590. Either choice it's hard to go wrong.
yeah... video performance is pretty dang good too - forgot to mention that part.
And the AA batteries is a huge thing. Slap some NiMh rechargables in and you're good to go.
Hi, Take a look at this short review and give your ideas on that,please.
I have taken identical photo`s with my LZ8 and Canon A590 outside in daylight.
And when compared the A590 pictures are considerable sharper with more detail and the images have a better contrast when zoomed in.
Image quality on the LZ8 = 7 out of 10
Image quality on the A590 = 8 out of 10
I'm not sure what to think of that review. The only things that are mentioned are image quality. I don't agree at all with the scores for features and value for the money. I had a Nikon L10 that was around $100 US when I bought it a little over a year ago. The LZ8 is only about $50 more than that and is far superior. It has tons of features and I can't think of many options is doesn't have (optical viewfinder and manual focus are 2 that I can think of). Image quality is about what I'd expect from a camera in it's price range for a compact point and shoot camera. The images I've taken with mine are very good for P&S camera and I'd agree with a 7 out of 10 on image quality. I'd give it an 8 out of 10 on features and a 9 on value. There's a lot packed into this small camera and at $150, it's well worth the price.
I got a bit of dirt on my lens today, I tried using the edge of piece of paper to pick it off, but all it bid was smear it across the lens.
Luckily i have a lens pen, but it`s far too big to clean the lens, so i had to use the edge of the pen and managed to clean all the dirt off.
The size of the lens make it awkward to clean!
I am sending the LZ8 back and getting an Sony W300 , I was not happy with the sharpness and detail of the image on they LZ8
I still have my Canon A590 for a cheap point an shoot camera!
