The almost fully automated Lumix DMC-ZS3S doesn't offer much in the way of manual controls, but it's a very good pocket megazoom camera for casual photographers who would rather let the camera do the work instead of tinkering with the settings themselves.
For anyone seeking a powerful pocket camera that can also shoot HD video, the DMC-ZS3S is a top-notch, easy-to-use option. --Tim Moynihan
