Colour Name: Black
The TZ30 (or ZS20 in the US) is Panasonic's new top of the range point and shoot travel camera. Since the release of the TZ20 competition in the sector has hotted up considerably with offerings from Canon (SX 260HS), Sony (DSC-HX30V), Nikon (Coolpix S9100) and Fuji (F770EXR) all competing with the TZ30 for a slice of the market. The "ball park" price of all these cameras is around the £300 mark.

The TZ30 packs a huge 20x optical zoom together with GPS into a genuinely pocketable package. The 14. 1 Mega pixel sensor has been redesigned to give better low light performance and is supported by a very effective anti-shake system. To me the pictures are noticeably better than the TZ20 which we also own. I can best summarise the pros and cons of this camera as follows;

Pros
- The build and pocketable size combine to produce a stylish package - because of these factors this is the camera you are most likely to have on you for that once in lifetime shot.
- Huge 20x zoom with effective stabilisation plus further usable digital zoom.
- Pictures are pretty good most of the time (but see below) and certainly better than the TZ20.
- GPS works well plus there is a mapping DVD provided with a database of over 1 million landmarks across the world - you load the region you are using the camera in and it saves the data to the SD card.
- Good burst mode and fast autofocus with tracking mode.
- 1080p video is very good with a wide range of formats to choose from.
- Clear touch screen display.
- Lots of scene modes plus, creative controls, panorama and a 3D facility.
- Seems to cope well with backlit subjects.
- Battery life quite good for a small camera unless you use GPS a lot.

Bought this product after reading good reviews on a number of camera sight. It had been a tose up between the Panasonic Lumix Tz30 and Olympus sz31mr iHS. But after look at a web site called snapsort which pitted all their features side by side I went for the more established Panasonic. I do travel occasionally so feel the gps would be great for automaticly labling my photos and also where I have been. The GPS does use the battery all the time when it is on, so when not traveling or for periods when you are not using the camera make sure you switch the GPS off, with this camera this is very easy to do. As for all feature it is had to say as I have only had the camera just over a week, But in this time I find the 14mps pictures are sharp and hd video is stunning especially as it is only fistly a camera.

pros

- Good pictures
- Good HD video
- very good 20x zoom clear image at all lenghts
- Good Optics with a Leica Lense

Cons (only minor)

- Be aware of GPS it will use your battery even when the camera is not switch on.
- Battery is charged in the camera via a usb cable, means you can't use the camera with a spare battery while the battery charges (you can buy chargers seperatly see Amazon) this does mean you need less accessories when traveling.

I bought my lumix DMC-TZ30 just over a month ago, it's excellent, it has slow motion filming, complete 360 degree panoramic stills or video, the zoom is very good, just point and shoot, I also purchased a professional waterproof housing which enables me to film under water to a depth of 40 metres, definately recommend this camera to all, all the small details are very good as well, things like socket ports, not just a fiddly little piece of hanging rubber but a sprung, easy to open mini cover, and instead of having an on/off button right next to the shutter button, the on/off is a slide switch, so no more pressing the wrong button, this is a quality full HD camera which can easily be connected to a TV with an HDMI lead, you are not going to get better pictures by spending more, for the first time I have added 4 video clips on 'You Tube' using the fantastic photo fun studio software, which came with the camera, I used the short film maker section, if you want to see my examples go to, "Windsurfing in Malta", on 'You Tube' you can see the other 3 clips from this one, the cameras abilities will speak for them selves.

I wanted an alternative to my heavy SLR kit. Although a I had a lot of options to buy, I wanted a good quality "pocket" camera for holiday.
RAW setting was not in my spec. This model can be used in semi, auto or with manual settings.
Without a doubt, the greatest feature of the TZ30 is its Leica DC lens. The IS lens offers a 20x optical zoom, covering a range from an ultra-wide 24mm and zooming in to 480mm at the telephoto end (in 35mm equivalent terms). The lens is supported by Power O.I.S. to help keep images blur-free. The large 14 megapixel MOS sensor and the Intelligent Noise Reduction system in the Venus Engine ensures both photos and Full HD videos are clear with minimal noise, even at dusk. The GPS functionality allows you to automatically record your location when taking a picture and view the map and associated photos directly on the camera. It can be swithced off if required. This helps with battery power, although I have a spare battery "just in case". Thanks to the fast continuous shooting of 10fps and light speed AF of 0.1 seconds, I was able to catch even the most fleeting of photo opportunities. The image quality is outstanding, even in low light conditions. I can thoroughly recommend this camera. The TZ30 is the perfect travelling companion.
