Brilliant Camera - Great for almost everything!

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.
Summary: So far I have been very pleased with this camera it is simple to use and takes great close up shots as well as distance shots with the intelligent zoom we have managed to take shots of things we can not make out with the naked eye, this takes a very steady hand though. It has managed moving shots without blurring and is great in low level lighting the ultimate test will be next week when I am taking long distance shots in very low light though I am confident it will...
Pros: Good Sized Screen, Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Excellent In Low Light, Nice Features and Settings, Good Battery Life, Great Resolution,
Summary: Agonised for an age over 2 different cameras & which one to purchase, I chose the TZ40 & am I glad I did, the Panasonic Lumix TZ40 camera is a pleasure to use, very light & well constructed, menu is simple to scroll through & use, Wi-fi set up was simple as was the GPS, which can be switched on or off as required.
Summary: I'VE USED MY CAMERA PHONE FOR A WHILE BUT AS I AM GOING ON A GARDENING HOLIDAY WANTED A BETTER CAMERA, WHAT I'VE TRIED TO DATE, MOSTLY IDIOT PROOF STUFF IT'S FANTASTIC. STILL GOT LOTS TO TRY BUT DON'T THINK IT GOT SO MANY AWARDS FOR NOTHING.
Summary: Really glad I bought this camera for my wife. It's easy to use and produces great photos in lots of different situations. The Wifi and global positioning bits are not really useful or easy to set up bt would recommend to others.
Good for the price - but not for use in China with GPS
22 April 2014
Summary: Lovely camera - light and easy to use. The GPS is great. But the manual says 'may not work in China'. Should say "definitely disabled GPS in China and near borders of other countries with China but we will still eat the battery power anyway". In use the main mode dial can move easily from the auto mode - some of my expected color pictures became 'creative' mode with sort of sepia look. Actually quite artistic but not expected.
