Panasonic Lumix SZ7 Digital Camera Review
Average Price: $129.99
Frugal5 Score: 9.0/10
Description
The Panasonic Lumix SZ7 is our pick for the best digital camera for the money.  It's a compact camera that takes amazing pictures with it's 14.1 megapixels resolution.  It also shoots 1080p video with stereo sound.  The optical zoom is also pretty good at 10x with a 20x digital zoom.  You get pretty much all the same features of a camera almost twice the price.  If you want a more zoom you might want to spend some more and go with the ZS15 or ZS20.
