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. However, my beef with the camera is that is slowly...
Summary: we did a lot of research on cameras before we got this, it's a good camera and packed with features. Some of the better features are within movie recording, you can zoom in and out while taking a movie, you can so longer movies (if you stick a 2gb sd card in it) and the movies have sound (you'd be suprised how many other cameras don't let you focus in and out and have sound).
Excerpt: Large images blown up to full size lack sharpness and even smooth surfaces look grainy. At night the camera is hopeless, the flash works well but it needs reasonable light levels to take photos without the flash. The best mode is macro; I managed to take some reasonably clear close up shots. On a plus side reliability and battery life has been amazing.
Summary: This camera takes ok pictures and has an amazing zoom but thats about it. You can't manually adjust any features like brightness, etc. because they only have scene modes. Also, this camera doesn't fit anywhere and its too heavy to just carry aroun on your wrist. I HATE it and selling it as we speak.
Summary: This camera has some very nice features for the price. I am still unsure about giving it 5 stars. I am a bit ambivilant about the quality of the images when in the telephoto mode. The focus seems to be very soft. I will give it some more testing before I say one way or another if I would recommend it. Respectfully, Dennis W.
Summary: Nowadays there are dozens of compact super zoom cameras to choose from - however, finding one that could plausibly fit into your pocket three or four years ago was a rarity. On its release in 2007, Panasonic's TZ1 was the smallest camera to offer a ten times optical zoom - although since that time it has been usurped by a number of newer models. Originally, the TZ1 was available to buy for £250, whereas nowadays you can pick one up for £50 on eBay.
Pros: Metal build, comfortable to hold
Cons: Image noise at ISO200+, only five megapixels
Summary: Voila maintenant deux ans que mon employeur a acheté le panasonic lumix DMC - TZ1 pour prendre des photos sur les chantiers. L'appareil est assez encombrant je trouve pour un numérique et la vitesse de mise au point pourrait être plus rapide. Le zoom est en *10, ce qui est déjà pas mal pour un numérique et l'appareil couvre une plage équivalente à un 35 - 350 mm.
Summary: Hace poco que tengo esta cámara y de hecho como usuario de réflex también puedo hacer una valoración de ello. La cámara está bien, pero especialmente por su zoom Leica 10x. Lá cámara es rápida tanto en su arranque como a la hora de disparar. Su Sensor de 5mp se defiende bien y permite hasta fotos 16:9 al igual que su video VGA a 30fps que realiza unas secuencias muy decentes y con ¡zoom!.
