Den strålende LCD er godt til visning og overvågning skud i detaljer samt afspilning af videofiler i thumbnails så lille som 30-split. Denne smarte LCD har en funktion, der registrerer, når lyset er lyst og justerer sig selv for bedre visning. LCD-erkender også, når det er for mørkt og øger lysstyrken i displayet.
Excerpt: One of the most exciting announcements at PMA 2008 wasn't a DSLR, but the next generation of Panasonic's TZ series of pocket-sized high-zoom cameras, the Lumix DMC-TZ5 ($299, estimated street). Panasonic also announced the DMC-TZ4, but because the TZ5 is the more advanced of the two, we'll focus on it here.
Excerpt: Lab Test: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5DMC-TZ5SPanasonicDMC-TZ5Ever since we got our first glimpses and sneak preview of Panasonic's newest Travel Zoom pocket camera, the 9.1 megapixel, Lumix DMC-TZ5 (street: $349) with the 10x optically stabilized 28-280mm f/3.3-4.9 DC Leica Vario-Elmarit retracting zoom, we've been waiting impatiently for a testable unit to arrive in the Pop Photo lab. Well, that day has finally arrived.
Panasonic Lumix 9.1 MP Digital Camera: Full HD Quality Images
Personal Electronics buzz
11 August 2009
Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix 9.1 MP digital camera shoots still and video and has the advantage of auto-settings and manual-settings. The camera features a burst mode that in all fairness eats up a whole lot of battery life. The SD card slot is compatible with MMC, SD and SDHC. You will not run out of memory, but you will run out of battery life when shooting HD quality images. I strongly suggest buying an extra lithium-ion battery.
Conclusion: While the step from the TZ1 to the TZ3 was quite a big one the upgrade from TZ3 to TZ5 is more evolutionary. The main changes are an increased megapixel count, a higher resolution screen, and an improved movie mode, now offering HD quality output. The newest member of the TZ family, like its predecessor, is a fast and extremely versatile camera that is also compact enough to carry it anywhere you go, and it's now even more fun to use.
Pros: Very versatile 28-280mm equiv. zoom range, Excellent lens, good edge-to-edge sharpness and little distortion, High quality build, full metal body, Little (if any) color fringing, Good flash performance, White balance fine tune option, Feels fast and responsive in most situations, Quick and reliable focus, Excellent, bright, high-resolution 3.0-inch screen, Superb High Definition movie mode with 1280 x 720 pixel 30fps wide screen option, Optical zoom usable in movie mo...
Cons: Heavy noise reduction at all ISO settings (although less than predecessor), Smearing of fine detail (caused by NR) even at base ISO, Macro mode less effective than competitors', Unreliable Auto WB performance under artificial light, Inconvenient location of the flash right next to hand grip, Occasional highlight clipping in high contrast scenes, Continuous shooting slower than predecessor, Focus slow down and occasional hunting in low light, Battery life not brilliant...
Conclusion: Panasonic TZ5 digital compact camera Panasonic offer a successful and smart series of digital compact cameras and keep setting the world on fire. It will affect the market share in a positive way and obviously drive Panasonic to continue on this road and deliver many more Lumix cameras. The Panasonic Traveler Zoom series is one of Panasonic's winners and that is quite obvious.
Conclusion: The Panasonic Lumix TZ5 is a relatively compact camera for a super-zoom. It has a useful 10X optical zoom lens which starts at 28 mm and it comes with optical image stabilization. While there's a nice lens in front, there's a fancy LCD on the back too. The Panasonic Lumix TZ5 has a large, high-resolution 3 inch LCD, on which you can see what you're framing in almost any condtiion.
Pros: Fairly compact with a 10X zoom lens; starts at a versatile 28 mm, Optical image stabilization, Camera performance is snappy, Large and very nice (sharp and visible) 3 inch LCD, Many scene modes, along with those Intelligent features (ie Intelli-ISO), High resolution 720p movie with ability to use optical zoom, Good image quality, improvement from previous cameras, and low color fringing
Cons: Not many manual controls (certainly no manual exposure here), Lacks post-shot red eye removal and movie editing features, Low light autofocus could be faster, Plastic tripod mount and plastic doors on the camera, Some very fine details (ie fabric lines) removed by noise reduction
Summary: With the release of the TZ1 in 2006, Panasonic arguably invented the compact ultrazoom class of cameras. Though a few have followed them down this road by tightening up the dimensions of existing ultrazoom models or launching entirely new cross-segment devices, the TZ cameras remain among the most popular of Panasonic’s offerings: as we reported last week, a TZ camera has been at or near the top of our “Most Popular Digital Cameras” list for more than a year now.
Pros: 10x Leica lens still great, Fast AF and good all-around speed, Vibrant color with plenty of punch, HD movie recording capabilities
Cons: Noise reduction still too intrusive, Some weird screen bugs in bright shooting situations, Macro mode dodgy at times, No manual controls
Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 ($350) is the follow-up to the highly popular DMC-TZ3 compact ultra zoom, which was introduced to much praise last year. That camera offered a 10X, 28 - 280 mm lens with image stabilization in a midsize body, along with a host of point-and-shoot features.
Summary: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 remains one of the most flexible compact cameras on the market – and one which has few if any rivals. Like its predecessor, it may not be the slimmest compact on the market, but uniquely packs in a 10x optical zoom lens complete with image stabilisation and a 28mm equivalent wide angle.
The flexibility and convenience of having such a long reach in a relatively pocketable body cannot be underestimated.
Pros: 10x optical zoom with 28mm and stabilisation., Large detailed 3in screen with 460k pixels., HD movies and zooming when filming., Uncannily good automatic mode.
Cons: Noise becomes a problem above 200 ISO., Little or no manual control., HD movies still no match for a camcorder., Extra screen detail only seen in playback.
