Good Pix, Bad Sound

  • Summary: The TZ5 is a handy little camera that is excellent for taking pictures. You can choose 4:3, 3:2, or 16:9 ratios. I use this for taking 16:9 pictures which I typically add to video productions. When taking videos, the 30 fps mode provides a good video picture. The drawbacks to me are: 1.

  • Summary: Okay, this camera is a little dated now for the series and in the meantime a lot of point and shoots from Canon with more pix do even better, this screen is great for showing people what you took, it's metal frame makes it sturdy and more durable than the plastic stuff out there, tons of options and...

Great Travel Camera

BBlair, Amazon
7 September 2009
  • Summary: I did a great deal of research before purchasing this camera because I don't have the time or money that some people apparently have to be doing the eBay revolving door thing. What I came to realize is that, disappointingly, there isn't a clearly superior compact or ultracompact camera out there.

Versatile traveler

  • Summary: This camera is the photographic equivalent of an all terrain ski. It has traveled with me to ski, tour Europe, ziplining in the rain, and with the underwater housing, been diving. This versatility comes with a price, but overall Panasonic has done a fine job.

  • Summary: I've owned many 35mm SLR cameras with mutlple lenses over the years and do extensive foreign travel. I decided to simplify and I believe this compact camera has fulfilled my basic needs.
  • Pros: Size, Leica 10x Optical Zoom, simple to use, good recovery time, generally sharp images, screen size.
  • Cons: For my casual use none that are important.

Great flexibility and quality in small camera

Samantha, Amazon
23 January 2009
  • Summary: My wishlist when buying a camera: size (must be small enough to tuck in a coat pocket or purse), optical zoom of 4x minimum, manual controls for shooting in unusual situations, 6Mpixel minimum, short video capable. This camera met all those except the manual control.
