  • Excerpt: This Panasonic is a lot of features in a really, really little package. All the manual control you could ask for, a superzoom lens (35mm equiv from 24mm to 720mm), an actual viewfinder, saving to RAW - this is the perfect portable everyday tool for me. With its very capable P and "i.Auto" modes, it grabs terrific snapshots with minimal fuss. GPS, NFC, and WiFi are all builtin (although WiFi's not the most intuitive feature).

  • Excerpt: Technically, size and function wise, it's fine. I bought one to use as DSLR backup for my lad's wedding in the USA, which it did admirably. But - the front lens cover and mechanism is extremely flimsy, and broke - it was always carried in a soft case. It is probably a case of trying to minimise thickness, why have a strong alloy body but a flimsy lens? Anyway, it was replaced, no bother, and the replacement now sits unused.

Panasonic now produces separate Japanese and Other language models

Chibimie, Amazon
27 September 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this camera yesterday in Tokyo where a very helpful clerk at Bic Camera informed me that Panasonic (and Sony, I think?) now makes two SEPARATE-language-versions of their small digital cameras--unlike Canon, Fuji, and the other brands that continue to provide multilingual navigation in all their cameras. So you definitely want to make sure the one you buy is for the English-speaking-reading market.

  • 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.

Brit in the US! "Wend", Amazon

  • Summary: Superb camera but the operating language cannot be changed away from Japanese. The instruction manual accompanying the camera is in Japanese. An official Panasonic instruction manual is available on the net in English. This specifically states that the camera language can be changed from Japanese to English. However, there is no such facility on the camera itself.

  • 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.

The best compact camera I have ever used.

Mitz, Amazon
21 May 2014
  • Summary: Amazing!! Very good manual focus, great zoom and fast zooming, super fast auto-focus, super quick power-on, very good stabilization, high sensitivity sensor, very useful WiFi applications like remote zoom and aperture controls and shutter, etc., in such small pocket-size compact digital camera!! I like the classical design, too. I have used >15 compact digital cameras(not including smart phone camera) in my life, and this is so far the best in many aspects.
