Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Great functionality, 16 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Panasonic Lumix TZ8 Digital Camera - Black (12.1MP, 12x Optical Zoom) 2.7 inch LCD (Camera)
This is a fairly high spec camera (although not the top of the range - this is the TZ10). At the time of writing (Jan 2011) I think the TZ8 offers good value for the amount of features it has.

To be honest I doubt I'll use the movie function much (I haven't so far), although it is easy to use and seems to give good results. It's the ability to take photos that is the real draw of a camera like this. It has a number of settings as you might expect from a high end camera, and some of these are better suited to those who know about manual use of SLR cameras, but the variety of built in settings cover almost every setting so you don't need to know how to use the manual settings if you don't want.

The zoom is great, the optical zoom goes to x12 (or roughly equivalent to a 300mm zoom on a 35mm camera), the digital zoom doubles this but there is loss of sharpness etc. The anti-shake is fairly good too - but there are limits to everything, so it won't compensate for terrible shake but I doubt anything ever will.

All in all a very good camera, with few if any faults.
