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.

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.

  • Conclusion: Panasonic has once again delivered the goods. The TZ40 is a richly featured and highly versatile travel compact that is sure to appeal to anyone looking for a digital camera that’s small enough to take anywhere but flexible enough to capture great images – even when your subject is far away. With the addition of Wi-Fi and NFC connectivity, Panasonic has also ensured that the TZ40 is future-proofed with the must-have digital camera technology of the day.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40 review

Pocket Lint
13 March 2013
  • Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix TZ40 - or Lumix ZS30 as it's known to our friends across the Atlantic - is one of those enabling cameras. It's got a 20x optical zoom with optical image stabilisation squeezed into a small and pocketable design which means wide-angle group shots or picking off those far-away subjects is possible all from the one camera.
  • Pros: 20x optical zoom, excellent image stabilisation system, super-fast autofocus, responsive touchscreen, Wi-Fi and NFC will come to the rescue at those unexpected moments, close-up macro mode, improved battery life, loads of on-board tech, fair price, pocketable size
  • Cons: Some colour noise in shadow areas, some chromatic aberration (purple fringing), Wi-Fi modes can be fiddly due to password entry process and occasional timeouts, widest aperture settings not as capable as some higher-spec models, continuous autofocus has its limitations, 18-megapixel boost hasn't advanced image quality
