Hi everyone, I'm selling my Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ3 camera on eBay for all interested. It's not up yet, thought I'd see if anyone here wanted it first - but I'll probably put it on there tomorrow night at some point if no one bites here.

It's a really great 5 megapixel camera that I've used for a bit over a year now, and am kind of sorry to see go, honestly. I ended up getting last year after having been disappointed by a number of point-and-shoot cameras that ended up having blurry photos and the like, and it's really been great.

I'm selling it because I ended up getting a much slimmer camera for my upcoming trip abroad (easier to conceal!). This one is a bit of a fatty compared to some cameras out there, but it's never let me down, and the photos are great.

Here are the "major" camera features for those interested:
• 5-megapixel effective CCD for images up to 2560 x 1920 pixels
• 6x optical zoom, equivalent to 37-222mm on a 35mm camera
• Optical image stabilization to help prevent camera shake and blurring
• High Sensitivity mode, up to ISO 1600
• 5-point AF with 3 point, 1 point and Spot options
• 2.0-inch TFT color monitor
• Macro, Portrait, Sports, Panning, Night Portrait picture modes
• Burst mode captures @ 3fps up to 8 frames
• 640x480/320x240 QuickTime movies, 30fps or 10fps w/out audio
• Shutter speeds from 1/2000 to 8 seconds (Shutter priority and Manual modes)
• Built-in flash with auto, fill, slow synchro and red-eye reduction modes
• TTL Auto White Balance, 5 presets and custom set
• 14MB internal memory plus Secure Digital memory card slot
• Plug-n-Play USB, Mass Storage compliant
• PictBridge Direct-Print compatible
• Powered by two standard AA type batteries

I'm looking to get $50+shipping for this. If an MR member buys this before I toss it on eBay, I'll even throw in a 512MB SD card for it, as I won't need it anymore.

Here are some really terrible photos taken by my cell phone (new camera won't arrive for a few days!). The camera is in great shape, with some light scuffing:

Thanks!

Edit: And I am in Minnesota, USA. I won't ship outside of the US and Canada, sorry - too many issues with tracking and whatnot.

Let me know you're an MR member with payment, and I'll throw in some extras or something. Like an old floppy drive. Or something!
