The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 was a compact 'Travel Zoom' camera announced on January 31, 2007.[3] It was the successor to the 2006 TZ1 announced in 2006, and was released in parallel with the TZ2. It has a 10x optical zoom with the focal range equivalent to 28–280 mm (35 mm film equivalent) coupled with Mega O.I.S. image stabiliser. It is a fully automatic compact camera, without manual control of aperture and shutter time. The TZ3 was awarded both the TIPA "Best Superzoom Digital Camera" award[4] and the EISA "European Compact Camera" award[5] in 2007. The TZ4, TZ5 (known as TZ15 in Asia, Australia and New Zealand) and TZ50 succeeded the TZ2 and TZ3.
