Ultrazoom Pocket Cam Sports Leica Lens, WiFi Connect

Wired
20 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Serving up a hefty helping of stainless steel and Leica glass, the TZ50 seals its ultrazoom dominance with integrated WiFi for straight-to-the-web image transfers (from your nearest T-Mobile hot spot). Panasonic gives aperture- and shutter-priority modes the heave-ho to make room for the company’s Intelligent Auto function. Luddites and camera snobs may whine about the loss of manual controls but can console themselves with the consistently terrific images.
  • Pros: Big, bright 3-inch LCD. 9.1-megapixel resolution. 10X optical zoom lens goes wide to 28 mm. Shoots HD video at 720p and 30 fps.
  • Cons: WiFi and HD video are $100 premium over otherwise identical TZ5. Supports uploading to Picasa only. All that metal adds up to a hefty load.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ50 Review

Digitaltrends
2 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Some things just go together like Brad and Angelina, peanut butter and jelly, Madonna and controversy. And then there are things that aren’t so buddy-buddy like digital cameras and Wi-Fi. In theory it sounds wonderful. You take your shots, find a hot spot then upload your images to friends and family. Gee, it sounds just like snapping a shot with your cell phone and zipping photos to your buddies—without tracking down a hot spot.
  • Pros: Good 10X zoom; quality LCD screen and image stabilization; compact
  • Cons: Very expensive; Wi-Fi integration could be better

Digital Camera Review
25 June 2008
  • Summary: It’s hard to find fault with the TZ50 as a basic compact ultrazoom camera. The T50 offers all the performance and flexibility of the excellent TZ5, which is certainly why many consumers will find it so appealing. Sure, Panasonic could have made the TZ50 a much more useful photographic tool by including basic features like P/A/S/M modes, but the reality is that most point-and-shoot users won’t miss these features.
  • Pros: 10x Leica lens still great, Fast AF and good all-around speed, Vibrant color with plenty of punch, HD movie recording capabilities
  • Cons: Wi-Fi feature isn’t very user friendly, Noise reduction still too intrusive, Macro mode dodgy at times, No manual controls

  • Summary: The future is bright for Wi-Fi on digital cameras, and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ50 is leading the way. If Panasonic can find ways to get access to additional Wi-Fi networks (especially corporate networks), mobile workers who take a lot of photos will find this a must-have tool.

  • Excerpt: Dopo la Panasonic Lumix Dmc-tz5 , Panasonic presenta la Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ50 , una compatta digitale da 9.1 megapixel con un eccezionale zoom ottico da 10x. Ma la particolarità sta nella funzione wireless LAN, utile per potersi collegare all'Album Picasa direttamente sul web. L'LCD misura 3 pollici.
  • Pros: ZOOM OTTICO
