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: 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.
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.
Summary: Fast start, pretty good pictures on auto mode. overall, a pretty nice compact when I do not want to carry my SLR. It has trouble focusing when shooting video using the zoom, hence 4 stars. This does not happen when using my panasonic compact TZ8.
Summary: I didn't want to carry a bag or lots of equipment and yet wanted to be proud of my resultant photos. I'm pleased to say this camera performs everything I have asked of it. I like the various alternatives and especially the 3d landscape photos. Of course the Leica lens is superb.
