Excerpt: I have had my Panasonic Lumix 5.1 Megapixel TZ-1 for several years now. It is a fantastic point and shoot camera, giving the user many options. At first it was tricky to navigate the menu and find the best settings for different photographic environments; however, now that I have …
Summary: I bought the first one and someone broke it, so i bought the second on and it wasn't the same. The picture, the focus, everything was like other camera. Not use it for a long long time. Why they has to be different? So dissapointed.
Lumix DMC-TZ1 pretty good but durability a question
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I've owned the DMC-TZ1 for a few years now. Let me say I'm a huge Panasonic fan and really do prefer the electronics they produce because of its quality, durability, and lower markup cost. The camera initially was very attactive because of the 10x optical zoom which is difficult to find with point and shoot models at this price point. It really does work well and I got some great shots of wildlife on a recent trip.
Excerpt: I'm very happy with the camera. It takes great pictures but where it really shines is the optical zoom. Ten times optical zoom. When I first purchased this camera in 2006, there was no other camera with that type of option in such a small package. With the intense zoon, you are able to capture moments from a distance that very few cameras can. At weddings, I can zoom into the bride and groom's face and see how they are reacting.
