    For the majority of people looking for a "pocket" camera - they can stop looking. This will honestly do for pretty much everything you really need. It's the newly released little brother to the £100 more expensive TX20. Personally I did have a good look at this and nearly got it but in the end decided that I wouldn't pay the extra money for the Geo-tagging feature on the camera and would make do with just remembering where I was when I took the photo. If you really want to know where you were maybe just take a photo of a road sign nearby ? Works for me anyway :o)

    It is not perfect, of course, but even if you take a "money no object" approach to picking an upper premium compact camera - there is currently nothing on the market that is head and shoulders better than this - although there can always be a case made for different qualities.

    Big zoom - check

    Good "glass" on the front - yep, Leica

    Good quality photos - sure, with the caveat that a "full monty" digital SLR will do better - the photos come out are a nice colour (not too vivid but also not too tame and washed out) and they aren't a funny colour in artificial light (some cameras can struggle and give you a funny tint under striplights or old fashioned tungsten bulbs).

    Noise levels - definitely there especially at higher ISO's but you get this problem to and exten even with the bigger sensor SLR's up to a year or two ago - and even the best of the modern breed aren't infallible if you read the reviews

    HD Video - check, but in MPEG format.

    This is a very good camera - we have had some excellent photos in the three months since purchase.
    However we have also had a major problem - the LCD screen failed.
    Panasonics answer to this was for me to send it to their authorised repairer for a free of charge check and repair. The repair may have been free (and was fast) but the postage and insurance was not!
    It is frustrating that the customer is out of pocket for a repair conducted under guarantee.

    Of course this is not an enthusiast's camera. It doesn't have all the tweeky bits required. But if you want a point-and-shoot model that produces the goods in terms of photo quality then this is the one for you. Image stabilisation works at the extreme end of the 16x zoom enabling hand-held shots that would be impossible without.
    There is no optical viewfinder and the colour balance may not be to everyone's taste but if you can accept it - and it isn't that bad- then there is little to fault. All in all, it is good value for the money.

    This is all you need in a camera and more! A huge, smooth, almost stepless 2-speed zoom, sharp results in optimal shooting conditions, Good, natural colour and excellent exposure, Effective image stabilization, Fast (and accurate) focus, Bright, clear, high resolution LCD screen, and excellent EVF. Physically, the camera is good build quality in a nice compact package. With a comprehensive range of controls & fast operation, Well designed menu system, and Lots of in-camera image adjustments, it's exceptionally nice to handle. It has a powerful flash, Good movie mode (16:9, VGA, 30fps), usable raw mode (approx 4 second shot-to-shot with a fast card), and a powerful raw converter. Excellent optical zoom (can be extended even further optically by reducing resolution down from 8 to 5 or 3 megapixels), and the long battery life is very handy.
    For travelling and holidays I have found this camera invaluable. It's so light and easy to take around, you never miss a photo opportunity. It takes such great photos, sharp, clear, and bright, and far higher quality than you'd expect from such a small bit of kit! There is very little red-eye syndrome, and it performs well in most lighting conditions. There are even plenty of functions to be able to custom set-up the camera to the way i want it (without the necessary complexity of dSLR's).
    On the downside, there is no facility for electronic remote / cable release, lens performance can drop off slightly at long end of zoom range, and there can be some loss of fine detail to noise reduction even at ISO 100. All in all though, I'd say this camera performs exceptionally well for such a small bit of equiptment. It's great value for money and I am well satisfied with it.

    I was looking for a replacement for my old Sony Cybershot 8MP camera that, although a couple of years old and a lot cheaper at purchase (approx. £150), had always been a bit of a let down.

    Not this one.

    It's easy to use, has a great wide-angle lens, which gives your photos a real sense of perspective, and a good optical zoom. The automatic setting is spot on for most photos, but if you find your indoor photos are a little murky, you'll find a setting to brighten everything up.

    The picture quality is great for a compact. I can only imagine if you want anything better, you'd either have to pay a hell of a lot more money or go for a full on SLR.
