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.
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: 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!!.
Summary: Having purchased TZ3 and TZ10 in the past, it was time that I updated my favourite camera. It has certainly been thought out well with all the good parts being continued and the modern approach to wi-fi etc incorporated. I think that I will have to spend some time playing with this camera. Thank you.
Summary: A super nice compact camera with loads of big camera functions. Super simple panoramic mode! The touch screen could be a bit more sensitive, but it's a huge leap forward as is. Controls are intuitive. Got it Wednesday; shooting great seaside holiday photos on Monday.
