Summary: This has been a very good camera for me. It takes nice picture, the menu's are easy enough to get through, and the zoom is amazing. It's bigger than those slim cameras but not by much and takes infinitely better pictures.
Summary: I am the owner of several cameras and wanted a compact to carry with me when it is not convenient to pull out my SLR. This is a great little camera with excellent photo quality. It also has the widest angel lens of any compact camera I have seen, which is great for capturing closeup shots and video.
Summary: You need to play around with the settings on this camera for the best results. First,,you must push the button down half-way to focus first , before you take the picture. Make sure you take macro mode off each time you use it(it does not turn itself off and will get you blurry pictures left on).
Summary: This wonderful little camera has been the first thing i've packed when going anywhere for the past two and a half years. I have loved the all the photos I have taken with it no matter how abstract. It takes fabulous photos and the zoom has been extremely useful to me.
Summary: For all the great reviews, I thought this would have been a better camera. The shutter speed is SLOW. Make sure to use a very fast card with this one. In fact, a slower SD card won't allow you to take video. When it works, the pictures are great.
Summary: I have a Panasonic DMC-TZ1 that I've used extensively on vacation, and it takes great pictures; it's very durable and reliable as well. I decided that when we took our vacation this year, I wanted to take HD videos of our destination (Colorado mountains).
