  • Summary: Nowhere in the listing for this product does it state that this camera is not capable of displaying any language other than Japanese! It may well be a great camera, but it is essentially useless to anyone who does not read Japanese - that includes the manual and software. This advertising borders on, if it does not constitute, fraudulent advertising.

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

urishani, Ebay

  • 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.

product great, service sucks

Bill C, Amazon
6 April 2014
  • 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.

Confused...do you speak Japanese?

Dr. Oceanfront, Amazon
22 February 2014
  • 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.
