Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ5EB-K Overview Normally I use large DSLR or bridge camera, but I wanted a small camera that would fit into my pocket when I don't want to carry a large camera with me, this camera is just about small enough to fit into a large pocket. What attracted me to this particular model was its 10x zoom range from 28mm to 280mm (35mm equivalent) and its reasonable 9.1mp resolution. I went out and took some pictures with this camera, and some more almost identical pictures with a Canon EOS DSLR, Whilst a compact camera can never match a DSLR in image quality, the pictures from the Panasonic fared resonably well in ...

I bought this camera as a replacement for my Olympus Mju which although took great pictures and video, had no internal microphone so the video footage had no sound! Anyway I was specifically looking for a camera with a high pixel quality, that shot pretty much unlimited video footage WITH sound and that also had a high spec optical zoom for when you can't get as close to a subject as you would like - anyone who has been to a Disney parade will know what I mean! It also needed to be fairly compact in size or like the video camera it would rarely come out of the box let alone get all the way to holiday! The Panasonic Lumix DCM-TZ5 seemed to tick all these boxes ... Read the complete review

The Panasonic Lumix TZ5 has been a heavily marketed camera. As a designer, I end up buying a lot of cameras, and was eagerly waiting to get my hands on this model after reading many positive reviews. My initial reaction to the TZ5 was good, as the camera felt solid with its all metal body. However, some of the controls feel a little fiddly, and I found them to be somewhat awkwardly placed. The Leica optics on this model are very good, and the 10x zoom gives a focal length which puts other cameras of its size to shame. This range is equivalent to 28-280mm on a regular camera, and represents a real wide-angle to telephoto ... Read the complete review

Are you in the market for a compact camera with excellent picture quality and possessing a better than average zoom lens range? Then the DMC-TZ5 could be just what you are looking for. For me, there has always been two troubling element to taking pictures - finding a camera that has a decent zoom lens range and having a decent stabiliser to eliminate shake when taking pictures. I love to go to concerts and my original camera just didn't cut it. After a fair bit of research in the web, I tested three cameras - the Canon SX10 IS, Panasonic FZ28 and Panasonic DMC-T5. Both the SX10 and FZ28 both had fantastic zoom ranges but they were just too bulky. Seriously, ... Read the complete review

I have decided to buy Panasonic Lumix TZ-5, after having long research on reviews sites and feedbacks. Today in the market there is maximum share of compact cameras are under of canon and Sony. But I decided such a camera which can fulfill my maximum requirements with travel features, which I can keep with me every-where and I can't loose any chance of good shot. Having all above points in mind I have decided to go for Lumix TZ-5 and it was my best choice according to requirements. Where it is extra-ordinary, where it fails.....some brief description I kept here, hope that u will like it. This Camera is excellent in many ways, ... Read the complete review
