  • Excerpt: I know I'm a bit behind the curve with this one, but the Lumix TZ8 / ZS5 is still available for a bargain price, so I  thought I'd write a quick review on it. If you're in the market for a very good compact with the creative controls to boot, why not take a look at this little Panasonic.

4 October 2010
  • Summary: Yes it's slightly bigger and bulkier than competing 'fashion' compacts with 3x optical zooms but the TZ8 from Panasonic can still fit into a jacket pocket and trouser at a push.
  • Pros: Ease of use, broader than average focal range, reliability, sharp and colourful results on almost every occasion
  • Cons: No dedicated video record button, playback needs a separate button

Panasonic Lumix TZ8 Review

What Digital Camera
18 June 2010
  • Summary: The TZ8 offers a lot for a relatively low price point. The 12x optical zoom provides a great 25mm wideangle starting point through to 300mm telephoto that will see a variety of images easily achieved from what’s essentially an easy to carry small and light compact.
  • Pros: Build quality, creative control, cost-effective
  • Cons: slightly chunky, limited upgrade over the TZ7

Panasonic's LUMIX DMC-TZ8 fails to impress

Good Gear Guide.au
30 November 2010
  • Summary: We were excited to see if Panasonic could improve on last year's excellent Travel Zoom camera, the LUMIX DMC-TZ7, but alas the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-TZ8 falls short. The only improvements over its predecessor are a higher megapixel count and better placement of the shutter button.
  • Pros: Compact, 14x zoom, good focusing, high-definition video recording in ACHD Lite
  • Cons: Poor mid-to-high ISO performance, soft image quality at smallest aperture, E.Zoom button is redundant, changing shooting modes alters the lens position, no dedicated video recording button

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS5 review

PC Advisor
6 October 2010
  • Summary: Compared with some feature-packed competitors, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS5 is a solid, no-nonsense pocket megazoom camera. Emphasizing smooth, versatile performance, its 12X-optical-zoom lens (25mm to 300mm) offers quiet motors and very fast autofocus, two factors that make the DMC-ZS5 a good...
