Excerpt: Excellent all rounder in a compact body. I use mainly as a back up to my DSLR and for when the full kit won't fit. Great zoom reach and very usable (just don't creep into the digital zoom!), good quality video, limitations are really only those of any compact - relatively slow AF, difficult to use manual settings, can't easily attach a polariser for landscapes etc..
Excerpt: I just bought this camera in June, and love it! It takes great pics, up close as well as zoomed out. Picks up colors nicely. It does average in low light--not as bad as many other cameras out there, but could be better. Overall a great point and shoot! The GPA is nice to see where you took your pics as well. You do need to be sure to turn this option off if you travel by plane though, so that's something to remember that is new.
Excerpt: This is my first camera purchase and I did a lot of research before buying. Most of the reviews I read stated this was a great camera, so I decided to buy it. I must agree the pictures come out great ( I don't really look at alot of pictures though so I am not a good judge ). There are several modes on the camera, it has GPS, and face recognition (never used them but nice to have I guess).
Excerpt: This is a very decent camera for the money. It has many capabilities that any camera in this price range should have, but it also includes some very nice features, such as Leica lens with a generous zoom, build-in GPS, and AVCHD movie recording (although I would prefer it had 1080p capabilities vs. 720p). Unfortunately, it also has some downsides, the main of which is its rather inept performance in low light situations.
Excellent zoom for a compact camera, good resolution.

Excerpt: I have had my Panasonic LUMIX DMC-TZ10 Digital Camera for a few years now and I really love it. I bought it looking for a high quality compact camera and I was not disappointed. It has both 12 megapixel resolution for great photographs and a 12x optical zoom - not digital zoom, which can give shoddy quality. The lens is a wide angle leica lens, which is a very high quality lens company and it gets a great wide angle on the view you are trying to capture.
Excerpt: Here at work, we purchased the Lumix DMC-ZS7 for taking pictures of electronics as well as other general picture taking. For our uses, this is a great camera. Our main use here is very close up pictures, to see solder joints, leads, etc. This camera does amazing work in terms of close ups. We have taken pictures from 2-3 inches out and the results have been nice.
Excerpt: I picked this camera up for my wife at Costco as a Christmas present a few years back. I was amazed at the quality. Several years later and we are still are using the camera and it still takes amazing photos
Excerpt: This camera is amazing! I love the quality of the photos - great detail down to a very granular level. The viewfinder is large and easy to see, and the focus feature is great. It is small and compact, and for the price is a great value. I would say the only thing that bothers me is the self-timer. You can only take one picture at a time, although their is a burst feature but the quality of those photos are poor.
Excerpt: This camera is awesome! I have used it for a couple of months now and the picture quality is great. It has all the features of a high end camera and in my opinion is much better than similar Sony and Nikon cameras. The GPS feature does drain the battery quickly if left on for a long time but it can be easily turned on and off. Picture and video quality are both awesome even in low light conditions.
