PC Magazine
28 November 2013
  • Conclusion: Panasonic's compact Lumix DMC-ZS30 features a long 20x zoom lens and integrated Wi-Fi, NFC, and GPS, but image quality disappoints.

Panasonic DMC-TZ40 Review

Review guidelines
31 August 2013
  • Summary: Overall, the Panasonic DMC-TZ40 is a very good Super Zoom, which does not shine, particularly for image quality, but it compensates with technological equipment or almost unparalleled (for a device of this range) enclosed in a very compact form factor and appealing. If that’s what you look for in a modern camera, and if you are not bothered by the high ISO performance only discrete and the relative aperture for the lens, we have no reason to advise against the purchase.
  • Pros: Excellent technological equipment, 20x zoom, Stabilizer effective.
  • Cons: Objective little bright, Visible noise even at ISO base, Build quality improved.

  • Summary: For the price of Rs. 25,990, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40 makes a compelling argument as a good purchase. Do we like it? Yes. Is it perfect? No. All in all, it's a really fast travel zoom and we do recommend you get yourself one if you're in the market to buy.
  • Pros: Excellent build quality, Fast burst rate, Lots of video frame rate options, Stereo microphones
  • Cons: Changing aperture and shutter speed is awkward, Poorly designed menus, Lens has a slow aperture., Slightly pricier than cameras in its league

Panasonic Lumix ZS30 is a fun, feature-filled compact megazoom

CNET
23 June 2013
  • Summary: A fully loaded travel zoom that's fun to use, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS30 has a lot to offer both advanced and casual snapshooters.
  • Pros: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS30 gets you a lot of features in a compact body including a 20x zoom lens, 3-inch touch screen, Wi-Fi for remote control of the camera as well as easy sharing, high-speed and full HD movie capture, and GPS. Photo quality and shooting performance are very good for its class.
  • Cons: The power and Wi-Fi buttons are too easy to accidentally press. There's no raw capture option. Battery life can be short if you do more than just take photos. Photos look soft and have visible noise/artifacts when viewed at full size even at its lowest ISO.

Panasonic Lumix TZ40 review

What Digital Camera
3 May 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 satisfy those that it's designed for.

  • Summary: Panasonic TZ40 review: the new addition to Panasonic’s popular ultra-wide TZ range of travel compacts brings a lot of sophisticated features. But can it deliver on image quality? Amy Davies puts it to the test in her Panasonic TZ40 review video. The TZ series is Panasonic’s popular range of travel compacts and this is the TZ40, the latest version, featuring a 20x optical zoom Leica lens.

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 backed-up by a built-in database of over a million landmarks and on-screen mapping.
  • 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 continuous shooting up to 10fps at the full resolution., Slow motion video at 200fps in VGA or 100fps in 720p.
  • 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.
