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: I have uppgradetat from a Panasonic TZ3 to a seven year newer model, the TZ40. + It is fast + Good pictures, the biggest improvement to the old, the images taken in the dark. + 20X zoom, crazy what you can get close when you are far away. + USB preload = can be charged with solar charger which is still in the packing + Long battery life + 100/200 fps video + NFC + WIFI transfer between camera and Tex App allows one to take a good picture and throw out on Facebook instead...
Summary: Great price for what you get but the picture quality from a normal distance had to be a little better. However, taking the close-ups and zoomed images very good! Bra pris för vad man får men bildkvalitén från normalt avstånd hade fått vara lite bättre. Dock tar den närbilder och zoomade bilder mycket bra!
Summary: I'm still finding my way around this camera, but so far it has been excellent as a replacement for my old and much larger bridge camera. Picture quality is high, zoom is very effective (but be aware that with no linked viewfinder, trying to follow subjects on the screen at high zoom is very difficult), video is impressive, and the panoramic function is great fun (with a little practice!) Cons so far: Wifi set-up seems to be unnecessarily complex.
great camera but one flaw slightly ruins it for me.

Summary: I am giving the camera 4*as I have found a difficulty that is a problem for me despite the camera being excellent in every other regard. I find that when I remove the camera from any case it is far too easy to accidentally switch it on and have the lens shoot out with the potential to damage the lens mechanism. The Wi-Fi proved to be relatively easy to set up once I had installed the app on my tablet.
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!
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).
