Overall Great Camera In Winter and Indoors!

Summary: Usually I use an SLR camera, but felt that a compact would be much more portable and convenient for unexpected shots! This camera lived up to and exceeded my expectations - in Winter. The zoom is brilliant and overall it really produces excellent results. My quibble - as the weather gets sunnier I find the lack of a view finder a huge disadvantage. On a sunny day when trying to focus I can only see my own reflection on the screen!
Summary: Have previously owned a TZ7 and decided it was time to upgrade to the TZ40. This is a general purpose camera for my pocket for when I dont have my DSLR or HD camcorder with me. The price for this camera is very competative now that Panasonic have launched the new TZ65; that makes the TZ40 excellent value. A brilliant and well specified camera. From full auto to manual, this camera should satisfy the requirements of most users.
Fully meets my need for a very compact, understandable, high spec.. high standard camera

Summary: Purchased 'used' - in good condition, with charger/battery, but no manual etc. Easily downloaded manual from Lumix - no hassle. Lost of features (more than needed!) Getting to grips with manual (as usual misleading in places).
Summary: I don't think I need say much about this camera, all the other reviews do that. its nice and easy to use with good results, also very compact and I like that you can use your smart phone for a remote.
Summary: For a slightly techie but keen photographer I cannot think of anything this camera doesn't do (except make the tea)! Have a lot of new functions to learn just hope I haven't missed the photo by the time I've got it programmed Old camera developed black spot on screen, so hope I have made the right decision to stay with Panasonic
Summary: Great pics and particularly good for night shots without flash. Would be nice to be able to transfer holiday pics to iPad directly without having to use a Wi-Fi network while still on holiday. Dedicated camera case is great and when fixed to your belt encourages you to keep the camera with you when you may otherwise be worried about losing it (particularly after a beer or two).
Summary: I bought this to replace an older Lumix which I've had problems with dust. The image quality is excellent & the range of functions is great. I like the fact that the settings can be manipulated to suit different settings / lighting.I don't like the on / off button being on the top of the camera, so close to the exposure button.
Pros: Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight
Summary: I gave this camera five stars rating for ease of use, very good clear pictures, very easy with point and shoot to take first class photos. The batteries seem to last ok, easy to erase unwanted photos before transferring to PC. The only down side I have encountered is it's very easy to take a picture when viewing photos on the touch screen. I purchased a 32GB class 10 SD SDHC Memory card which holds loads of photos and great for a days out snapping at everything!!.
