Product Description

Taking Hand-Shake Out of the Picture — MEGA O.I.S. helps keep your shots steady, even if you're not
It's hard to hold a small camera steady. That's why the LZ7 and LZ6 feature MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization), which automatically detects and compensates for hand-shake. You get clear, beautiful shots even when zooming, shooting macro close-ups or taking night scenery.

Detects Movement, Helps Prevent Blurring — Intelligent ISO Control helps eliminate blurring caused by subject motion
The camera senses if your subject is moving and raises the ISO and shutter speed settings accordingly, preventing motion blur. You get clear, crisp shots even if your subject moves. Also, you can set the sensitivity to as high as ISO 1250.

6x Zoom Power with Easy Zoom Function
The power of a telephoto lens, the convenience of a compact camera. The LZ7 and LZ6 come equipped with a 6x optical zoom lens and the Extended Optical Zoom feature, which extends zooming to as high as 9x. The camera switches instantly from 1x to 6x to 9x (full Extended Optical Zoom) power, each time you press the Easy Zoom button on the camera top so you're always ready when the perfect photo opportunity comes along.

Great pix for cheap
I needed a camera for hiking to replace my Nikon. I didn't want to spend a lot of money seeing as what could possibly happen to it. After doing some research I decided to go with this one because almost every review I read the response was positive so I took a chance. I've been surprised and very pleased with the performance. The pictures this thing takes are true and the 6x zoom is amazingly sharp. Many people with more expensive cameras even DSLR's are impressed with the pictures I'm able to take. The only drawback I have with it is the lack of a true manual mode. But the auto iso and image stabilization almost make up for it in any situation. But for under $200 what do expect?
