  • Summary: The Lumix DMC-ZS20 is arguably the most full-featured travel zoom on the market. Its Intelligent Auto mode and decent set of manual controls combined with an elaborate GPS setup and 1080/60p movie mode make it a traveler's delight.
  • Pros: Good photo quality (though see below), Packs a 20X Leica lens in a pretty compact package, "Power OIS" image stabilization, with "active" mode for movies, 3-inch touchscreen LCD with 460,000 pixels, great outdoor/low light visibility, Built-in GPS with landmark database and maps, Good collection ...

  • Summary: Panasonic booked the Lumix DMC-TZ30 to be released next month. The UK will be the first to see this cam on its shore. Compact cameras have yet to see such a good example on how one of their kind must look and perform. And so it seems like the Japanese minds are at it again!

  • Summary: Panasonic is lauding the Lumix DMC-TZ30 as its most advanced photo and video-shooting compact camera to date but, while its image and video quality is impressive, its performance in low light lets it down slightly.

Panasonic Lumix TZ30 Review

What Digital Camera
8 March 2012
  • Summary: We’ve seen a spate of pricey cameras hitting the shelves in recent months. The TZ30 carries the same SRP as its predecessor, at £349, though pre-orders are available at £329 at a variety of online stores. The Panasonic Lumix TZ30 is a serious advance to the TZ-series and delivers in every area.
  • Pros: Big zoom in a small body; excellent stabilisation system
  • Cons: Still no Raw shooting; battery life could be better

  • Conclusion: I have been rather impressed with the Lumix DMC-TZ30 and all that is has to offer. The image quality is good, the lens offers a massive 24-480mm range, there’s Geotagging capability and the camera has the quality to shoot Full HD video with DOLBY sound.

  • Summary: If the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 were scored on features alone, it would get top marks. It is also quick and easy to use, covers an extensive focal range and has a host of neat shooting modes.

  • Summary: A small digital camera from a company that does a whole raft of electrical items which naturally include cameras . This is perhaps one of their smallest as they also do a range of DSLR units apart from the pocket Lumix range.
