Advantages: 12x wide angle lens, strong design and build quality, Manual exposure modes
Disadvantages: zooming at first was confusing .
Panasonic's TZ-series compact superzooms have been a line of successful quality travel, zoom cameras that were amazing all round. but now the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10, includes a higher-resolution sensor, GPS functionality, manual exposure modes and intelligent image processing. Also it comes at a fairly cheap price which is what i wanted just for holidays and simple walks.
Could this be the perfect travel camera?
The pictures of course are high quality and are high detailed. The optional intelligent system works well in nearly all photos like reducing noise in certain areas or increasing detail. I use this mostly in photos as occasionally it well shoot slightly worse photos but nearly always it shoots better photos in my opinion.
There is an intelligent zoom of 1.3x and an extra optical zoom of a staggering 23.5x but has lower resolution which is understandable.
Compared to the last model the 12.1 megapixels hasn't really done anything for the image quality but of course is nice but at iso 800 it looks significantly worse.
I also use this camera for video and it shoots 720p video which looks very nice but what i was most impressed was how easy it was just press the red button and you have started the video. I found it easy to play back videos on my computer and auto focus still works while filming.
Its high quality metal construction made it feel strong yet it was small enough for pockets and such. The straight forward control layout was easy to get to grip with especially for beginners like me and it took me no time to be taking decent snaps of anything and everything.
obviously if you have read my review you will know it is a great camera and is best in the the series so far although the image quality has more or less stayed the same the gps and intelligent features mixed with hd video makes this the perfect travel compaignion.
