Product Information
The ZS3 records HD motion images at a smooth 60 frames per second with 1280x720-pixel resolution. It uses the AVCHD (MPEG-4/H.264) format via AVCHD Lite, which stores less data than other formats and thus lets you shoot more minutes of HD motion images before running out of memory.The ZS3 is equipped with an HDMI output terminal for direct transmission of digital picture and sound signals. Just connect the camera to an HDTV using a single HDMI mini cable (purchased separately), and it's easy to view beautiful HD photos and motion images. If you have a VIERA HDTV, you can control the camera's playback functions with VIERA's remote control unit.The ZS3 packs a LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens with 12x optical zoom into a compact body. This versatile photographic tool lets you shoot everything from sweeping vistas at the 25mm wide-angle setting to dynamic 300mm telephoto shots. And the lens system's exquisite rendering ability lets you capture even the subtle nuances of the sights and scenes in your travels.

Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewVery Good

  • THE GOOD

    Long and wide-angle zoom lens in a compact body; 720p movies; lens can zoom during movie capture.

  • THE BAD

    Very few manual controls.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    As long as you don't want much in the way of manual features, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 is a very nice camera that can handle a variety of shooting situations.

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3

    I decided to purchase the ZS3 after owning the ZS1 for 4 months. I wanted the HD video quality to avoid taking my video cam as well for everyday use. I especially liked the ability for the ZS3 to adjust the focus while following my subject. Of course there are trade-offs as the camera does not do well in low light conditions while taking video, but the still shots are superb and the form factor allows me to take the camera wherever I go because of its size and weight. While the camera is a compromise, I think it is the best
    that is offered at this time for the size, quality and price. I especially enjoy using the is the terrific wide angle and the great zoom ratio which are common to both the ZS1 and ZS3. I am very happy with my purchase which should serve me for at least two more years.

    A good value that exceeds expectations!

    Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

    I purchased this camera used because our other Panasonic TZ-5 had a cracked LCD screen. It's easy to use and the HD video is unbelievably clear. It has a face recognition feature that identifies faces instantly and enhances the focus.

    Make sure you get all of the accessories including the HDMI cable and USB cable for transferring photos and showing video and photos on your HD TV monitor.

    One thing I am not crazy about is the software that comes with it. There's better software out there and I recommend Picasa.

    Another good investment is a hard case to protect the camera as dropping it will surely crack the LCD screen. My Lumix DMC-ZS3 works like a charm and takes incredible photos.

    Awesome Camera

    I was looking all over the internet and best buy to find the best camera at a good price that would be great for concerts. Not just pictures but the video, audio was key for me.
    I came across this camera while looking up "best cameras for concerts" on Google. It looked great! I looked at videos on YouTube and loved it even more. Clear picture and great audio. So i went to eBay and found one that was "manufacturer refurbished". I was hesitant to get it at first but i took a chance. THIS CAMERA IS AWESOME. I love the zoom and the audio works great!
    I have been testing this camera all day and the battery lasted i would say about......7 hours? We didn’t even let it charge the whole time and i was filming long videos and recording in front of amps and taking pictures while shaking the camera haha i even turned on the faucet and took a picture of it with a light stream. It caught it in droplets! I’ve never been able to do that before haha so over all why do i love the camera?

    1) Sleek look
    2) Great zoom
    3) Great flash
    4) Great picture quality
    5) Clear videos
    6) AWESOME audio
    7) Unbeatable price
    8) More things i can’t think of at the moment haha

    My only con would be that it is a rechargeable battery since i am more of a disposable battery person. But it still lasts a long time and it will save me money haha

    BUY IT!
