This new Camera was discovered defective out of the original box. It has been repaired by a Panasonic service center.
Panasonic packed lots of picture-taking power into their sleek, pocket-sized DMC-TZ3. It boasts an impressive 10X zoom lens with optical image stabilization for snapping photos of far-off subjects with pinpoint clarity. This compact cam also offers versatile wide-angle shooting ? you can easily capture large group portraits in a small room, or record breathtaking panoramic landscapes.
The 'TZ3 uses Panasonic's latest image processor for fast start-up time and vivid, true-to life colors. Plus there are plenty of pre-set scene modes, including High Sensitivity for shooting indoors without a flash. A bright, high-resolution 3" LCD screen makes composing and viewing your images easier.
Built-in 12.7MB memory holds approximately three shots at the top resolution ? add optional SD cards for more storage.
