Summary: Didn't think I would like this so much but it has been a good little workhorse camera. The video and still modes are both good. The only problem I have had is you can't see the screen or anyones screen, in the bright sunshine, but I have never regretted the purchase.
Summary: Pictures quality + dimensions + price = very good thing. This DC provides video and audio recording with very good quality. Good for trips, hiking and entertainment. I would recommend Lumix DMC-TZ5K 9MP as a medium class DC.
Summary: This camera has rich colors with a simple point and click. No fuss necessary. You have great options to mess with if you are inclined. Have had it for a long time and still get comments on the beautiful color quality from others.
Summary: I was writing a review for another item and here comes my old Lumix TZ5 review Already 5 years i make good photos with this camera.No problems at all.We feel very happy with this camera. Great product and great price that time.
Excerpt: This camera takes high quality photos and has a clear 3" LCD to check pictures with after taking them. The general functions on the camera are easy to use, yet it is capable of doing such things as capturing HD Video.
Excerpt: I own an SLR but still keep this little buddy with me. It takes very sharp and detailed pictures and I love the zoom range. I would always bring this when I can't carry a bag with me to take my SLR. I would always bring this to take shots in school programs and can even record videos on it. Not too compact compared to other digital cameras but the pictures are just so awesome!
Panasonic-lumix dmc-tz5 is the best camera i could ever own.

Excerpt: Panasonic Lumix Dmc-TZ5 is the best digital camera you could ever buy. I will never go back to any other brand. It has everything. You can take pictures in multible modes even in the dark and they come so well. You can even take videos.
Great zoom, mediocre focusing speed, great buy for about $150

Excerpt: Great camera as you can zoom while taking the movie but does have annoying part of taking a first second snap shot of every clip you record and in video focusing is sluggish. But I am not just talking about in-video focusing, regular picture taking is also a bit slow due to the focusing compared to my other camreas. Overall great camera is you are not a indoor picture junkie.
Excerpt: I've had the camera for over a year and I use it frequently. It has tons of features, most of which I don't know how to use yet. For those of us that don't want to be bothered with the manual, there's an IA (intelligent auto) setting, better known as the dummy setting). I love the 10X zoom. It really allows you to get some great shots at sporting events or at the zoo. It takes fabulous outdoor photos, however, my indoor photos don't come out that great.
