Panasonic Lumix TZ40 Review

What Digital Camera
14 June 2013
  • Summary: Costing the same as the TZ30 when it was launched, the Panasonic Lumix TZ40 offers more connectivity options and better all-round features. The long zoom, great handling and simple menu system add up to make it a great camera to use, and while we’d like the next TZ model to offer Raw, its JPEGs will...
  • Pros: Huge zoom in a slimline design; Great stabilisation system; Strong bulding; Wi-fi and NFC connectivity
  • Cons: No Raw support; Buttons are small; Touchscreen icons could be made larger

Panasonic Lumix TZ40 / ZS30

Camera Labs
1 April 2013
  • Summary: To look at last year's TZ30 / ZS20 you'd again be forgiven for thinking it already had everything apart from the kitchen sink: a very usable 20x optical zoom packed into a surprisingly pocketable camera with full manual control, 1080p HD video, touchscreen, 360 degree panorama stitching, and GPS...
  • Pros: Broad 20x optical zoom covers every situation in slim body., 1080p video with zooming, stereo sound and continuous AF., Built-in GPS with landmarks and basic street mapping., Built-in Wifi with NFC and smartphone remote control., Touch-screen interface - just tap where you want it to focus., Fast...
  • Cons: Can't disable IS for video - not ideal for tripod filming., Touch-screen not used for text-entry., Need to be running Image App before attempting Wifi or NFC link., NFC connection sometimes requires several taps., Direct uploads from camera are slow & require signup with Lumix Club.

Panasonic TZ40 review

TechRadar UK
12 August 2013
  • Summary: Travel compact camera gets an upgrade - but how does it fare?
  • Pros: Good zoom length, Touchscreen, Digital filters, GPS and Wi-Fi, As with the Panasonic TZ35, it's fairly remarkable that a 20x optical zoom can fit into a body of this pocket-friendly size. It's an extremely flexible option for holidaying photographers, with the GPS functionality proving a valuable...
  • Cons: No raw capture, Wi-Fi functions could be better, There's not too much to dislike about the Panasonic TZ40. Although Wi-Fi is a useful addition, it could be better implemented, perhaps by giving you the ability to email a picture, rather than sharing only via the Lumix network.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40 review

21 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Image quality is normally our number one priority when we review cameras, but last year's Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ30 was an exception to the rule. Its image quality was perfectly respectable, with sharp focus from its 20x zoom lens and well-judged automatic exposures, but its sensor produced more...
