very good camera,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic DMC-TZ30EB-K Compact Camera - Black (14.1MP, 20x Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD (Electronics)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.
- 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.
