Reviews and Problems with Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40
Showing 1-10 of 12
Not as good as my old TZ10!
23 November 2013
Summary: As a photographer with arthritis who can no longer hold a decent camera, I bought the TZ010 five years ago and it has been in my pocket ever since - a fantastic little camera. It finally gave up the ghost, and I bought the TZ40 to replace it. I need a light weight beast to shove in a pocket, get rained on and get knocked about. The TZ40 doesn't feel as robust as the TZ10, and I wonder how long the touch screen will last.
Does not feel or look like the Panasonic I'm used to

Summary: Unfortunately I had to return this item. Having always relied on Panasonic, somehow, something has gone wrong recently and I thought the finish was poor and the instructions for use over-complicated.
Summary: I bought this camera based on all the good reviews I've read so was very surprised when I tested and found sub-standard image quality. Video was great, packed full of great features along with a great focal length. All of this really did not mean much as the pictures I took were quite disappointing. All images were considerably softer and no where near as sharp as the ones taken with a Sony cybershot WX200.
Summary: This is my 5th Lumix camera and I had chosen it pretty carefully against the competition. But when I got it I was very disappointed. The resultion delivered by the 18 megapixel sensor seemed ordinary at best. I compared photos taken with the TZ40 with my old TZ10. Frankly they looked no better at any degree of magnification. They also seemed a bit "muddy". Photos taken with flash on the TZ40 were also very grainy compared with the TZ 10.
Summary: Avec un appareil de ce prix là on attend des photos de qualité (surtout avec 18 millions de pixels), en fait les contours sont flous, mauvaise résolution, agrandissement papier des photos impossible. un investissement pour l'arrivée de bébé, mais des souvenirs de mauvaise qualité.
