Great quality pictures, amazing zoom, compact design
9 September 2012
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.
Excerpt: When I was shopping for a digital camera, I was looking for the highest possible combination of megapixels and optical zoom. For the price, no other camera comes close to this Panasonic. It also has the optical image stabilizer, which helps me get a clear picture at high zoom. It is a nice compact size that easily fits into a pocket. The pictures come out better than all of my friends' point and click digital cameras. The only negative is the lack of a viewfinder. ...
Excerpt: I love my new camera, its zoom is the best I have saw for this size of a camera, and the pictures are crisp and clear, great buy, I would reccomend to anyone... I love zooming in on things far away just to see what they are, I also love to take pictures of butterflies and flowers, and capturing them can be tough without the awesome zoom this camera has. Anyone that doesn't want to carry a huge camera with attachments this is the one for you.
Excerpt: Overall this camera is a great buy. The zoom and resolution allow for amazing nature pictures, as well as any highly detailed thing. The main drawback that I see is that it is difficult to take impromptu pictures. If you see something that you really like, first you have to take off the lens cap, turn the camera on, wait for it to register, then snap the shot and then again wait for it to register.
Excerpt: I love taking photos and I love to carry my camera with me wherever I go. This camera is small enough to carry everywhere and takes amazing photos. The 10x optical zoom is fantastic with the image stabilization, pictures come out perfectly crisp. The battery has a very long life between charges. I got 2 batteries so now I am never without a fully charged camera. There are many mode options with with camera. The night setting works great in low loght situations,...
Excerpt: I have never seen a camera with these features with this amount of quality. The Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ1 gives the sharpest pictures I have seen on a point-and-shoot camera. I have had great luck with low light pictures, very low noise and no softening, as I had heard about this camera. The image stabilization is the best of any company and the Leica lens and the 10X optical zoom is fantastic, you will not find these on any other point-and-shoot camera.
