  • 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. Unfortunately its image quality is not as good as the rest of the package, and enthusiasts may miss things like RAW and manual focus.
  • 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 of manual controls, Intelligent Auto mode does it all for you, including scene selection, face detection, blur reduction, shadow brightening, and smart sharpening, Robust perf...
  • 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 internal battery charging system, Flimsy door over memory card/battery compartment; can't access memory card while camera is on a tripod, Very little built-in memory; full man...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 review

Amateur Photographer

  • 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. Image quality is not quite as crisp as that of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150, but it is an improvement over the TZ20 at higher ISO settings. Panasonic has once again improved its solid line-up of TZ travel compacts.

  • 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.

  • 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. Panasonic have packed in just about every current feature you can think of. You should find picture quality very good in most circumstances.

Panasonic DMC-TZ30 review: waardige reisgenoot?

besteproduct.nl
15 March 2013
  • Excerpt: De Panasonic DMC-TZ30 draait om zoom en dat dan het liefst in een zo'n compact mogelijk toestel. De 20x optische zoom een uitgebreide filmfunctie, GPS en touchscreen maken van dit toestel een aantrekkelijke reisgenoot. Bekijk de Panasonic DMC-TZ30 review.
  • Pros: De Panasonic DMC-TZ30 valt vooral op door zijn eenvoudige bediening en uitgebreide filmfunctie. Tel daarbij een kwalitatief goede zoomlens bij op en je hebt een meer dan prima aanschaf voor op vakantie.
  • Cons: Dit model is niet geschikt voor de echte high end gebruiker door het gebrek aan RAW-fotografie en een korte accuuduur. Ook de weergaveschakelaar kan voor de snelle fotograaf vervelend zijn.

  • Conclusion: Disponible maintenant pour moins de 250 €, le Panasonic Lumix TZ30 est un appareil qui fait un très bon travail grâce à son zoom 20 fois stabilisé et un capteur qui permet de faire de très belles photos et de très belles vidéo. Pour ce prix relativement intéressant, on retrouve un GPS intégré qui va permettre de pouvoir géotaggé les photos et les vidéos.
