42nd Street Photo’s Digital Camera for the Holidays

It’s time for the holidays and we have some great choice of gifts for you. We will start with a compact digital camera that should definitely interest you.

Panasonic DMC-ZS3 10.1 Megapixel Digital Camera

Like its predecessor, the Lumix DMC-TZ5, Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-ZS3 offers an interesting combination of features, including a 12x zoom lens and 720p AVCHD video capture, in an attractive, compact body.It also holds pretty well compared with competitors like the Canon PowerShot SX200 IS. Available in blue, silver, black, and red, the ZS3 (aka the TZ7 elsewhere) has a similar little brother, the ZS1.

Here are a few great features of this digital camera, just to name a few.

  • 10.1-megapixel effective recording
  • 3″ high-resolution (460,000-pixel) LCD screen
  • wide-angle lens for shooting landscapes and large groups
  • scene recognition identifies shooting conditions and selects optimal settings
  • mini HDMI output for connecting the camera to a compatible HDTV (cable not included)
  • 40MB internal memory holds about 7 photos at top resolution
  • high-speed USB interface
  • 4-1/8″W x 2-3/8″H x 1-5/16″D
  • weight (without battery and media): 7.5 ounces

If you’re looking for a real point and shoot with the flexibility to cover a large variety of shooting situations, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 offers a very compelling. You can find great cameras like these and much more at 42nd Street Photo.
