OK, Folks-

Here are the Panasonic ZS7 photo samples requested by Dustin. As was done with the other cameras in this comparison thread:

The ISO was set to ISO 200, 400, 800

The WB was set to AWB because there is no Flash WB

The shot was taken in the "P" for Programed Auto Mode, except the last shot in the IA Mode

The ZS7's built-in flash was used

Here is the ISO 200:

OK, Folks-

Here is a photo sample taken at ISO 800 using not the Program Mode, but the IA Mode.

OK, Folks-

Here is a 100% crop of the ZS7 photo sample that was taken at ISO in the IA Mode, rather than the Program Mode.

SGF-

No, I don't want to move backward thank you. You now have ZS7 photos at ISO 200, 400, 800, and using the IA Mode. This is work intensive. I think that should cover high ISO shots.

Thank you Sarah.

Disappointing to see that with a successive generation we see a decrease in image quality. Just goes to prove the more is not better, and camera manufacturers need to listen to their engineers and not their marketers. This is pretty sad...
