Excerpt: I have used this small compact camera for 6 months now. My version is the ZS15, and can be purchased very cheaply in HK and the China market. I paid just over $200 with a 8G SD card and a small camera bag with it. I am very happy with the results of this camera and I bring it to all my recent trips whenever I don't have the space or energy for my full frame DSLR & lenses.
Excerpt: A great small superzoom camera. Very versatile(25-384mm)& sharp lens, good macro mode at wide angle & full telephoto, great image stabilization, full manual control(no raw), excellent movie mode, nice natural(not over saturated)color, & very easy to use. This little camera really surprised me with it's sharp lens & excellent image quality. Much better than I expected for a small sensor with a huge all in one lens.
Excerpt: I have the ZS3, ZS6 and ZS15 and the ZS15 is the best of the three. It takes excellent photos and the color is terrific. My FZ47 and FZ150 now stay at home and I will probably sell them shortly. You can't go wrong with the Panasonic ZS15 for a great little pocket point and shoot.
Excerpt: Great fun owning this camera. Consistent quality photos. Nice 10x zoom. Big screen for a little point and shoot. I've out grown this camera but would highly recommend this (or more recent models) for anyone looking for a compact quality P-N-S.
Excerpt: I bought this camera sight unseen; there were no reviews nor photos, but I had a trip to Florida fast approaching, and all I had was my T3i - way too big for a whole day at an amusement park. Pickings were sparse, the Canon SX260 wasn't released, I really disliked the SX230 in my hand. The Panasonic ZS10 was available, but it took a beating in the reviews for image quality and noise; not what I wanted to hear; it was also way too expensive.
Excerpt: This cameras is the cheaper version of the TZ31. It only shoots 1080i video with mono sound, has 2MP less and less zoom range, no touchscreen and cheaper building. I got both cameras for testing and the TZ25 is not really recommendable. Pics are worse than the old TZ10. Noisy and with CMOS speckles. You can´t change sharpness, contrast, saturation and noise reduction anymore, you just have a choice between Standard and Vivid colour mode.
Summary: This is a great camera photographicly but big problem with dust in lens this was a replacement for a earlier model which got dust inside lens creating a Mark on all photos now this one has done the same thing has now happened rendering this one useless after only 14months. Panasonic need to find a way of protecting from this or make in a way that cleaning can be carried out. The cameras were not used in a very dusty area so I am very disappointed.
Summary: I bought this for my wife to replace an old and failing previous model of the same camera. The interface is simple and clean and the quality of the photos is pretty good. The main reason for choosing this particular camera model was the extremely low focus time. It is quite capable of getting some nice pictures of a rapidly moving child and even gets the moment you actually wanted to capture. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a good point and click.
Summary: Bought as a replacement for a TZ8, which we lost. It's a good, easy to use camera with good optics and a reasonable battery life. However I preferred the TZ8 which this is supposedly a replacement for. The TZ8 had one less button on the top and the shutter button placement was better for my hand size.
