I seem to not appreciate yet the advanced features of this camera.

Summary: I bought this to replace my old shure shot. I read the Lumix is better than sony or cannon 20 zoom compacts. It is indeed loaded with features, but far from the easy going of my old cannon. Wifi connectivity is to complex for a commputer savvy as i consider myself. So viewing on smart tv isnt working. I do that the old way. Movies format is kind of unique for my common players. Need to findout how to convert them.
Summary: Todavia no la he utilizado mucho, por eso no me atrevo a darle el excelente, no soy profesional de la fotografia, solo una aficcionada con ganas de aprender, pero lo poco que he visto y he cacharreado con ella, me parece buena camara.
Summary: When I received this camera - it was only in the Japanese language I tried to use it going with an English Manual that I had to download myself - but the Manual at some stage was not coinciding with the use of the camera I asked for a refund from the seller - who told me he couldnt do this in the begin - but later said that I could return the camera and he would give me a refund after he has seen this I have returned the camera to the seller - who informs me he hasnt...
Summary: There is no way that Amazon should be selling this product without having it set to the English version. Amazon should have aranged with Net Life of Japan to have an English version for sale in the U.S. Failing that, there should at least be proper instructions for obtaining and installing the English version. If no response leading to fixing this problem is found, the camera will need to be returned.
Summary: I wanted to buy my son a very light camera for his upcoming trip to Asia. I have always heard great things about the Lumix, and he got a smoking deal on it, so I told him to buy it and I would pay for it as a birthday present...this is it, the TZ-40. I tried to play with it, but I could not get anywhere as the instructions are not in English, nor is anything else. Luckily my son is very tech savvy and I think he may just figure this guy out.
Summary: The Panasonic Lumix TZ40 is hands-down my best ever camera purchase. I can't for the life of me figure the reviews about Japanese menus, but figure Amazon may have purchased a bunch intended for the Japanese market that weren't defaulted to english language. Ignore all these reviews. I had to change language to Japanese on mine to see what they were talking about, and was able to change it back to English simply enough but had not considered the menuing to be problematic...
Great camera but don't buy it from Japan unless you can read Japanese

Summary: I bought the camera from Japan and found it could not change the language. I returned the camera and got a full refund because the information on the sellers site did not say Japanese language only. I have since bought the same camera in Australia and it's great. The only thing is to save battery life, do not forget to turn off the GPS when not in use, or purchase additional batteries (2) and charger.
