Excerpt: I purchased this camera and wondered when I was outside with my polarized sunglasses on, why the camera would not seem to turn on when I pressed the power button. It worked inside. The I realized that the polarization of the screen was at 90 degrees to my sunglass lens, rendering it black. Rotate the camera 90 degrees and it is bright again. Perhaps this is a one-off mistake, but it renders this camera unusable outside in the sun.
Summary: Utilizo la camara para pequeños viajes y senderismo. En formato y peso reducido es de lo mejor del mercado. Muy recomendable para quienes hagan actividades en las que no pueden cargar mucho peso y al mismo tiempo no quieren renunciar a la calidad de una buena foto.
Excerpt: I just purchased ZS40 and I am unpleasantly surprised that some features present in my old LUMIX TZ5 were removed. - There is no more "indefinite burst". This feature was very useful for shooting panoramas and stitching pictures after in appropriate software. Not possible any more. In fact, there is "panorama" mode, but it is useless, you can't control whole process like before. - When you do auto-bracket, camera shoots 3 pictures with different exposures. This is fine.
Excerpt: Finally a compact camera that has a view finder and the ability to manually focus the camera. I have had a couple of other small compact cameras and they always focus on the thing that is closest to the camera. So the object that I am trying to take a picture of is blurry. This camera will allow you to actually focus on the subject that you want by manually focusing the lens. Also it has a view finder.
Excerpt: I have read some of the reviews posted here and I have serious doubts about their credibility as they appear to be strongly biased like being written by the marketing department of Panasonic and not by some genuine customers and users. SHAME ON PANASONIC for using this trick! Well, I am genuine user and while the camera appears to be quite capable, after only a couple of days I become aware of a few major problems: 1. there is no more the 2 seconds self-timer 2.
Excerpt: Great little camera with great image quality. The EVF gives a clear enough image for me, and its positioning means I don't get smudges on the screen.( I use my right eye). I decided to splash out on the proper Panasonic case as the lens cover mechanism looks flimsy. Nice to be able to zoom while shooting video, which I couldn't with my old camera. Has anyone else found Football Manager13 on their SD/SDHC card after using it in the TZ60?
Excerpt: The first days I spent with ZS40 weren't that rosy. I quickly noticed the weak corners, photos were lacking definition, and the longest end of the zoom was far from stellar. I was willing to return the camera and pick a trusty Nikon P7800, but the hardware made me think twice. The ZS40 is a joy to use, good in hand, right weight for stable shooting but remaining pocketable, awesome and second to none stabilization (a lot better than my Canon S110), usable viewfinder that...
