Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS10


If you're familiar with Panasonic's Lumix ZS line, you'll find that the DMC-ZS10 falls in line with what you'd expect: a solid build, good manual options and scene modes, and a few unique features such as 3D shooting and GPS. At $400, we'd have liked to see a RAW mode, longer battery life, in-camera maps, and better overall image and video quality in Intelligent Auto mode, but the ZS10's broad range of features compensate to some extent for its tendency to underexpose images in anything other than broad daylight. Frequent travelers who want a sturdy, versatile compact camera for their adventures will find a lot to like here, as long as they're comfortable tinkering with manual controls and scene modes, and they remember to turn off the GPS features off when not using them.
