At approx. 1:45, Michael Manna remarks that he prefers the ZS3 / TZ7 over the Canon SX200 IS due to better functions and controls on the Panasonic for recording video.

The benefit of being able to zoom the lens while in video mode

The sample video clip below is an excellent demonstration of the usefulness of the zoom functionality on the ZS3 / TZ7 in movie capture mode, something most digicams cannot do, certainly not on competing cameras such as the Canon PowerShot SX200IS or Fujifilm FinePix F200EXR.

Note that the photographer starts at a focal length of 300mm (in 35mm equivalent terms), and slowly zooms out to 25mm.
