Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8

14 Reasons why Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 is better

than the average

1.Appreciably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
10fpsvs 7fps (the average)
vs 60fps (best: Nikon DL18-50)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
188gvs 376g (the average)
vs 65.5g (best: HTC Re)
57.6mmvs 95.2mm (the average)
vs 26.2mm (best: DxO One)
4.Notably less body volume
201.81cm³vs 531.12cm³ (the average)
vs 65.29cm³ (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
33.4mmvs 50.8mm (the average)
vs 13mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
6.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (54% don't have it)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
7.Can create panoramas in-camera
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
8.Somewhat bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
9.Significantly less shutter lag
0.7svs 16.3s (the average)
vs 0.00025s (best: Leica M Typ 240)
The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
10.Clearly less startup delay
1.5svs 34.8s (the average)
vs 0.01s (best: Nikon D70)
It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
11.Vastly greater zoom range
16xvs 12x (the average)
vs 83.3x (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
12.Vastly longer maximum focal length
384mmvs 273mm (the average)
vs 2000mm (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
13.Measurably longer exposure time
60svs 37s (the average)
vs 3600s (best: Hasselblad X1D-50c)
When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.
14.Significantly shorter minimum focal length
24mmvs 27mm (the average)
vs 1.18mm (best: HP Photosmart R937)
A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
