Conclusion: I thought at first that the camera was a bit bulky but I’ve changed my mind. It’s a camera with and amazing zoom. If it was a SLR camera the lens would be pretty big so Panasonic have done well to fit it all nicely into the TZ6.
Conclusion: Panasonic is clearly trying to make a name for itself in the digicam market. With the LX3 , GH1 and this new ’09 model, the company is putting itself within shouting distance of Canon, Nikon and Sony, and giving these competitors a nice run for the money. To wit, the Lumix DMC-ZS1 is a good, compact digicam with an excellent 12x wide-angle lens that takes high-quality photos. Granted, it doesn’t have any manual adjustments to speak of, or HD video capability.
Summary: : The Panasonic TZ6 improves on a few key areas, and makes an impressive camera even better, the camera now offers an even wider 12x optical zoom lens with image stabilisation, all in the same compact body and it will still fit in your pocket. Image quality is excellent, with lower noise than the TZ5 and excellent detail. The camera provides an abundance of features, and has a very good 2.7" screen.

Cons: Some noise visible at ISO100 (but good results upto ISO400), Slightly weak flash, some red-eye, Some purple fringing
Excerpt: With its TZ series Lumix cameras Panasonic has pioneered the inclusion of broader focal ranges than usually offered by a digital compact. In practice this has made them most apt for candid and (amateur) wildlife photography, school sports days (at a push) at maximum zoom, plus landscapes at the wider end.
Summary: The Panasonic Lumix TZ6 is a brilliant Zoom camera. The picture quality is brilliant and it takes pretty good video footage too. Being able to use the zoom when recording video is a definite plus.
Excerpt: Le Panasonic Lumix TZ6 est le successeur du Panasonic TZ5 . Comme le Panasonic TZ7 , il est ambitieux par sa focale puisqu’il dispose d’un puissant zoom stabilisé équivalent à 25-300mm. Le point fort d’un tel appareil est son côté universel : - par son amplitude focale, il offre vrai grand angle et position télé conséquente, le tout dans un boitier compact - par les différents formats de prises de vue : le capteur de 10 MP (un peu petit puisqu’il s‘agit d’un...
