  • 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 ...
  • Cons: While improved over the ZS10, photos still have too much noise, even at ISO 100, Tends to clip highlights, Strong redeye; no removal tool in playback mode, Images have yellow/brownish cast in artificial light, No RAW, manual focus, or WB bracketing support; movie mode lacks manual controls, Slow ...

  • 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!

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.

  • Excerpt: 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.

  • Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ30 compares favourably against other digital cameras in this category, especially when it comes to features. The 20x lens is hard to beat and features such as stereo sound and a 10 frames per second burst mode help to place it at the top end of the group.
