Brilliant little camera,
This review is from: Panasonic Lumix TZ8 Digital Camera - Black (12.1MP, 12x Optical Zoom) 2.7 inch LCD (Electronics)I received my camera on Saturday after ordering it on Thursday lunchtime. Really quick delivery! Spent the weekend flicking through the manual I'd printed off from the web (you get a CD with it on too) and figuring out how to do stuff I did with my other camera. Everything is straightforward, the controls are precise and sturdy and it's just a great little camera.
I make jewellery so the macro zoom is very important for me and it doesn't disappoint. Having the optical 12x zoom as well makes this a fantastic all round camera for my precise work as well as being able to use it as a general camera for holidays.
The only gripe I have with it is that once you've put the self-timer on it only stays on for one picture and then flicks off again. I'll soon get used to having to put it on for each picture but it would be more useful to have the feature stay on. The manual doesn't say anything further about this so I'm going to have to see if there's a way around the setting but I doubt it.
