Summary: This camera has a great "feel", but this particular model was worthless to me because I don't speak or read Japanese. I was impressed with the promptness of the shipping but discouraged that the order placement did not specify that all the instructions internal and external would be in Japanese.
Summary: I ordered this camera without any information that this is the Japanese version of TZ30. In your description of the camera you did NOT mention so. After trying to find out more information online I discovered that I am not the only person who has had this same problem.
Summary: it is better to announce everyone here that you are selling a local product with your own language. before they decide to pick your items. most of softwares come with a flixable optoins to replace it or upgrade it accept this one ! Firmware update service will never help ...really disappointed !!
Summary: I ordered this camera without any information that on Amazon that this is the Japanese version of the TS-20. The TZ30 has only Japanese language. I have asked to return it to Amazon and am waiting on a RMA number.
Summary: Absolutely superb camera. This was a replacement for my old TZ5 which gave up on the screen after many years of brilliant use. The zoom is fantastic. I don't use the gps. Panasonic has kept up its excellent quality and build. A very satisfied Panasonic user !
