A lot of picture power in your pocket

Rich the shutter bug, B&H Photo
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: After reading the basic instruction pamphlet to get an overview of the controls it is easy to start taking pictures. The complete operators manual on the included CD is well laid out and easy to follow. The quality of pictures is great. One concern is that there is no protective dust cover over the shutter which opens when the camera is turned on and the lens extends. Also when the sun is to your back the LCD display is difficult to see.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
  • Cons: No Viewfinder

Great little camera

Gdm, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: It does its thing well. I wanted the big optical zoom in a little point-and-shoot. I'm getting great shots, and it has some fun bells and whistles. Also, I like that I can pretty easily move a photo fromThe camera over to my iphone 5 using the wifi feature. It's not effortless to do so, since my phone doesn't do NFC, but it's not hard either. (There are many people on YouTube with little videos on how to do it.) I am very satisfied with this camera.

  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, No Viewfinder, Short Battery Life

great camera, if you don't mind figuring out the Japanese menus

ttiza50, Ebay
16 March 2014
  • Summary: First off, the DMCTZ40 is evidently a gray-market item in this country, though it seems to be sold with initials (DMCTZ40ee) in countries like Australia. As a result, the language in the camera is entirely Japanese, *and it cannot be changed.* This is true even when you go into the initial settings (a complicated series of pushing buttons according to directions in the service manual), and a loud warning noise sounds just to emphasize the point when you try.

All Good - Thanks B&H

  • Excerpt: Bought this camera for the 120fps shooting experience and am wholly satisfied. I saw other sites with a bit better rates but without the reliable B&amp;H name. I appreciate the ease of the B&amp;H purchase experience.<br /> <br /> As always, thanks for being there B&amp;H.
  • Pros: 120 Fps Capable At 720, 3 Preset Modes, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Focus Lag, Lag / Shutter Delay, Poor Directions

Powerful inteligence in a compact pack

Otavio MEC, B&H Photo
5 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Bought this camera for a ski trip (in fact, received it at the 3rd day of the trip, as expected.)<br />Found it surprisingly able to produce good pictures in low light conditions..<br />Couldn't explore far enough the other features in the menu but the basic &quot;inteligent&quot; mode has shown to be able to manage different situations, adapting itself to conditions as low light, bright background or macro automatically.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good in Low Light, Short Lag Time

Loaded Camera. OK Image Quality

Justin James, B&H Photo
1 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Good camera, comes loaded with features. <br /><br />Tried the GPS feature in USA. Doesn't pick up signal indoors and could drain battery if camera is on indoors a lot. Outdoors works good, though if you select landmark feature, it could be a little off.<br /><br />Image Quality is ok. Nothing to complain about from a compact camera.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact

20 X zoom, the size and reliable auto mode make it a great camera for her.

piticoto, Ebay
10 January 2014
  • Summary: My wife uses it, more and more feature on each new model, now I have to learn about these appealing features and explain, like GPS tagging, or NFC. I'm used to images from larger sensor camera and I can see the picture quality difference. But, this is a small camera with 20X zoom and good image stabilisation. Even at 1/5 sec exposure time with her shaky hand she still gets good pictures. She loves it and it's in her purse all the time.
