Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 front view



The Panasonic Lumix ZS7 is a full featured compact camera that features a 25mm ultra wide angle 12x optical zoom lens, a large 3.0-inch LCD screen, AVCHD Lite HD (720p) movie recording, and builds upon earlier models in the Lumix ZS series by adding built-in GPS and manual exposure control.

One of the major new features found in the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 is the built-in GPS geotagging capability. Geo-tagged images can be pinpointed on maps common in social media sites, and easily shared with friends and family.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 now offers manual exposure control options which are conveniently located on the mode dial found on the top of the camera. Users can select from Aperture, Shutter Priority and Manual exposure modes for greater photographic creative control.

The Lumix DMC-ZS7 offers a large 3.0-inch high resolution 460,000 dot LCD monitor with brightness adjustment for composing and playing back images and movies.

    Panasonic Lumix ZS7 / TZ10 black top view

    The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 offers a very practical zoom range while still being small enough to easily fit in a pocket or purse. The camera will appeal to family and travel photographers that are looking for ease of use combined with the ability to take control of settings when desired.

    A shooting mode dial located on the top of the ZS7 next to the shutter release button allows for the selection of the following shooting modes: iA fully automatic mode, Program (P), Aperture Priority (A), Shutter Priority (S), Manual (M), Custom (CUST), My Scene Modes (MS1 and MS2), Scene Modes (SCN) and Clipboard mode (notepad icon).

    In iA mode the Panasonic Lumix ZS7 automatically takes care of all the settings using the camera's built-in intelligent scene recognition technology. Selecting iA mode activates the following built-in technologies:

    Face Recognition: You can set the camera up to recognize a specific person in the scene. Once registered, the Lumix ZS7 is able to recognize the person when they appear in the frame and the camera will then prioritize focus and exposure for that person accordingly. The faces of up to six people can be registered in the camera by first taking their portrait and then adding their name using the menu system.

    Face Detection: The camera automatically detects faces in the scene, preventing blurry faces that happen when the camera focuses on something in front or behind the subject, and helps prevent faces from appearing dark when shooting indoors or in back light situations.

    Auto Focus (AF) Tracking: Once you focus on your subject, AF Tracking automatically tracks it until you press the shutter.

    Power O.I.S. (Shake Detection): The built-in optical image stabilizer system is designed to prevent image degrading blur that can occur when shooting at slower shutter speeds and allows for hand held shooting under lower light conditions.

    Intelligent ISO Control: When the Lumix ZS7 detects subject movement it automatically raises the ISO sensitivity setting and shutter speed to prevent motion blur.

    Intelligent Exposure: The camera analyzes the scene as it is captured and adjusts brightness in areas that are too dark because of dim lighting, back lighting or the use of flash. The result is a more even exposure across the image.

    Intelligent Scene Selector: the camera automatically selects a Scene mode based on the subject and shooting conditions that are detected. The camera selects from one of the following modes: Scenery, Portrait, Macro, Night Portrait, Night Scenery or Sunset.

    Intelligent Resolution (I.R) Technology: gives a high resolution look to digital zoom images as well as ordinary images by applying in-camera image processing. This feature enables 16x Intelligent Zoom on the Lumix ZS7 that digitally extends the optical zoom magnification by 1.3x with little loss of image quality.

    The Lumix ZS7's shooting mode dial also offers a Custom (CUST) setting. It can be pre-programmed by the user to provide quick access to frequently used camera settings based on personal preference.

    The Panasonic Lumix ZS7 offers a number of convenient automatic 'Scene' modes. These shooting modes are designed to optimize camera settings in relation to the type of scene being photographed.

    To activate a Scene mode on the Lumix ZS7 you set the camera's shooting mode dial to the SCN position and then select the appropriate Scene mode from the menu displayed on the camera's LCD monitor.

    Lumix DMC-ZS7 Scene Menu

    The Lumix ZS7 offers the following Scene mode options: Portrait, Soft Skin, Transform, Self-Portrait, Scenery, Panorama Assist, Sports, Night Portrait, Night Scenery, Food, Party, Candle Light, Baby, Pet, Sunset, High Sensitivity (for low light), High Speed Burst (Up to 10 pictures), Flash Burst, Starry Sky, Fireworks, Beach, Snow, Aerial, Pin Hole, Film Grain, High Dynamic, Photo Frame, Underwater.

    It is possible to assign a Scene mode to each of the 'My Scene' settings (MS1 and MS2) found on the camera's shooting mode dial. Whenever you want to use the associated scene mode, you simply set the shooting mode dial to the desired MS position and the camera is ready to go.

    Another setting on the Lumix ZS7's shooting mode dial is 'Clipboard mode', intended for taking pictures of documents such as maps and timetables. This allows the user to capture and store map or travel information for later viewing on the camera's LCD screen.

    The main Panasonic Lumix ZS7 buttons and controls are located on the back of the camera as seen below.

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 control layout

    Most of the features and settings on the Lumix ZS7 are controlled by using the the MENU / SET button. Pressing the MENU / SET button activates the camera's menu system, and you use the up, down, left, right buttons on the surrounding four way button control pad to scroll through and select from the camera's menu options.

    The buttons on the control pad also provide quick access to frequently changed functions. Pushing the up button on the control pad provides the option of adjusting exposure compensation settings (+/- 2 stops for brightening or darkening the image).

    Panasonic DMC-ZS7 exposure compensation menu

    Pushing the right button on the control pad allows for the adjustment of the ZS7's flash settings, which include; Auto, Red-Eye, Flash On, Slow-sync/Red-Eye, and Flash Off.

    For close-up photography, the Panasonic ZS7 offers a macro close-up focusing ability down to 3cm from the subject when the lens is in the wide angle zoom range. The macro feature is automatically enabled in iA shooting mode, and can be manually selected by pushing the down button on the control pad.

    Pushing the left button on the control pad provides access to the Lumix ZS7's self-timer settings. Available self-timer options include a 2 sec or 10 sec delay before the picture is taken.

    The two bottom buttons on the back of the Lumix ZS7 include the DISPLAY button and the Q. MENU / Delete button. The display button offers control over how shooting information is displayed on the camera's LCD screen in both shooting and playback mode.

    The Panasonic Lumix ZS7 offers the option of selecting a grid overlay display mode which superimposes a set of vertical and horizontal framing lines on the LCD monitor to provide assistance in composition for situations like architectural and landscape type of photography.

    The Q.MENU / delete button is used to access the Panasonic Lumix ZS7's Quick menu when the camera is in shooting mode. The same button is used to delete images when the camera is set to playback mode.

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 Quick Menu

    The Lumix ZS7's Quick menu feature offers a faster way to change common camera settings. The current setting for each one of the Quick menu options is displayed in the Quick menu tool bar displayed on the top of the LCD screen.

    The available functions that can be adjusted by using the camera's Quick menu include: GPS Setting, Burst Shooting, AF Mode, White Balance, Intelligent ISO, Intelligent Exposure, Picture Size, Movie Record Quality, and LCD Mode.

    The built-in GPS unit on the Panasonic Lumix ZS7 allows for the automatic geotagging of images so that you know where the image was taken. The ZS7 incorporates GPS information for 173 countries and over 500,000 landmarks, and will tag the corresponding location to the image if it exists in the camera's database.

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 GPS Menu

    When playing back geotagged movies or images on the Lumix ZS7, if location information is available it is displayed on the camera's LCD screen. In the above screen shot the camera identified the landmark and the city as the Rogers Center in Toronto.

    The Lumix ZS7 offers a variety of continuous shooting options. In Burst mode you can capture up to three images at a rate of 2.3 frames per second. Among others, there is also a High Speed Burst scene mode which reduces the resolution to 3 Megapixels and allows you to shoot up to 10 frames per second for a total of 100 images.

    The Panasonic Lumix ZS7 provides a number of different Auto Focus (AF) modes to ensure that the camera focuses properly on the intended subject. Using the camera's Quick menu, it is possible to select from six different AF options to fit the photographic occasion. Choices include: 11-area (closest subject), 1-area High Speed, 1-area, Spot, AF Tracking (follows subject), and Face Detection AF (focuses on people in the scene).

    With respect to ensuring proper colour in your photographs, the Panasonic Lumix ZS7 offers both Auto White Balance (AWB) settings or the ability for the user to manually set WB from a range of available presets including: Daylight, Cloudy, Shade, Incandescent and Custom (set by taking a picture of a white surface under the given lighting conditions).

    The Lumix ZS7 offers an Auto ISO setting where the camera controls the camera's sensitivity to light depending on brightness levels. The ISO sensitivity range on the Lumix ZS7 can also be manually selected and goes from 80 - 1600 ISO which is fairly common for this class of camera.

    Another option on the Panasonic Lumix ZS7's Quick menu is the ability to control the camera's Intelligent Exposure function. Available selections include: Off, Low, Standard, and High. Used in difficult lighting situations, the Intelligent Exposure function is designed to ensure that brighness detail and shadow detail remains more constant throughout the image.

    The Lumix ZS7 offers five resolution settings to fit the intended use of the image. Using the camera's Quick menu you can select from highest quality recording at 12 megapixels for larger print sizes down to as low as 0.3 MP suitable for web or email.

    A similar option exists for movie shooting, where you can choose from one of three different quality levels. The amount of available recording time on the memory card will vary depending on the movie level that is choosen, with the L setting offering the longest recording time at the expense of some quality. With the GPS movie tagging option enabled, these options are represented by GL, GH, and GSH in the camera's Quick menu.

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 Movie Menu

    The Lumix ZS7 is able to record 720p HD video in the AVCHD Lite or Motion JPEG format. There is also a AVCHD Lite GPS option which tags the movie with location data. Motion JPEG offers the benefit of easier editing, whereas AVCHD Lite produces smaller files thereby offering longer recording times.

    The last tab on the Lumix ZS7's Quick menu is the LCD mode option which allows control over the brightness level of the camera's LCD monitor. In Auto mode the Lumix ZS7 will automatically vary the brightness intensity of the monitor to match viewing conditions. This feature can be disabled using the Quick menu tab, or you can adjust it so that LCD brightness boost is always on.

    Panasonic Lumix ZS7 / TZ10 top

    One nice benefit with the Panasonic Lumix ZS7 is that you can use the full zoom range while movie recording. With the ZS7 you can utilize the 12x optical zoom fully in movie recording mode. The GPS and corresponding location information can also be embedded in the video clips.

    With the newly added Video Divide function on the ZS7, users can divide the video into two sections to shorten or delete the unwanted part. You can capture a still image from a movie in the camera and Intelligent Resolution Technology makes it possible to produce 1920x1080 still images from a 1280x720 HD movie. A Wind Cut function is also available to block out most of the noise from background wind.

    The Panasonic Lumix ZS7 comes supplied with a proprietary Lithium Ion rechargeable battery and battery charger. The ZS7 battery provides for about 300 shots per charge based on the manufacturer's specifications. One nice feature is that the battery charger incorporates an AC wall plug, so there are no extra cords to bring along when traveling as with some competitors models. Having an extra battery for back up is always a good idea.

    In addition to the conventional SD / SDHC memory cards, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 accepts the new SD format SDXC (SD eXtended Capacity), that provide both high capacity and fast data transfer speed.

    An optional marine case (DMW-MCTZ10) is also available for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 that allows for underwater photography.

    Panasonic Lumix ZS7 Review User Experience:

    The Panasonic Lumix ZS7 falls into the category of being one of the smaller yet full featured cameras available on the market. Considering its user friendly operation combined with more advanced features and GPS geotagging capabilities, the camera lends itself well to travel and family type photography.

    Based on our tests with the Panasonic Lumix ZS7, the 12x optical zoom with optical image stabilizer delivers good image quality throughout the zoom range. The camera's intelligent resolution technology allows the zoom range to be extended digitally to 16x (400mm equivalent in 35mm terms) offering the ability to get in close to the subject from far away with little loss in image quality.

    The Lumix ZS7 is quick to respond making it easier to capture sudden, spur-of-the-moment photo opportunities. The Lumix ZS7 also features a short startup time of approximately 1.1 second.

    The camera's movie quality is good and the handy one touch movie recording button allows for fast and easy access in order to capture HD videos to complement still photos.

    The Lumix ZS7 is also a good performer In terms of metering and auto focus, with the exception that under bright lighting conditions the camera does have a tendancy to loose some highlight detail in favour of mantaining detail in the shadow areas of the image. An example would be loss in sky detail when capturing a landscape scene.

    In terms of its GPS tagging capabilities the Panasonic Lumix ZS7 is one of the best performer's in its class. In our tests the camera did a good job of identifying local landmarks in Toronto and was generally quick to establish a location position with the GPS feature enabled.

    Taking advantage of the camera's extended scene mode options, or using the manual exposure settings, allowed us to get the desired results that might not have been possible by simply using basic iA automatic mode.

    Whether capturing or playing images on the Lumix ZS7, the 3.0-inch high resolution LCD screen with wide viewing angle makes for a pleasurable viewing experience. The ZS7 does offer an HDMI output (cable sold separately) in order to connect the camera to an HD television or monitor allowing for easy sharing of high resolution images and movies with family and friends.

    We recommend the Panasonic Lumix ZS7 to those that are looking for a solid compact digital camera that offers good image quality and can be easily brought with you wherever your travels take you.
