Panasonic - Lumix DMC-TZ5 black
An outstanding product at the Christmas offer price. For me, an enthusiastic amateur, it offers good results in all aspects of use - the lens is astonishing, the screen superb with very clear prompts and the instructions simple to understand.
I found a. It took a while to learn the wide range of macro use.
b. Twin switches for W and T preferable to the single coarse swing type
c. I prefer a smooth zoom for editing on playback as opposed to the jumped multiple magnification
