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 figured them out, I’ve gotten great results. One option that I love is the range of ISO, which goes from 80 to 800.
Great quality pictures, amazing zoom, compact design

Excerpt: This digital camera out-performs many of the cameras currently on the market and it is several years old. I have owned mine for over 5 years and it still operates like new despite dropping it twice on the corner. This camera has incredible zoom with a manageable 5 megapixels. For example, I was standing on a structure across a lake about 1/4 mile wide and I max zoomed to the other side to see my friend centered in the viewing window.
Excerpt: This is a great little camera, compact and simple to use. You can not go wrong in purchasing the Panasonic DMC-TZ1. It has the lumix glass lense that I find a big plus for this camera.Has its own setting for macro shots. Also has a simple mode which is a big plus. It also has night settings and takes wonderful fire works photos. The macros are clean and crisp and the best most used function for me with the camera.
Excerpt: AWESOME! There are many versions of this Lumix camera, however, I am loving my TZ5 version. Huge 3" screen on the back. Durable, great lense. Takes amazing photos. Crisp and clear photos. The one and only downside to this camera in my opinion is the side door where you connect cables for downloading, etc. This door should have been made to not open so easily. Just take care, otherwise you could snap it off.
