5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome pocket camera for home and holiday!, 4 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40EB-K Compact Camera - Black (18.2MP, 20x Optical Zoom Leica DC Lens, Wi-Fi with NFC, Built in GPS, 24mm Wide Angle, 50P Full HD Video - AVCHD) 3 inch LCD (Electronics)
Awesome camera for holiday snaps and excellent HD video - What I loved about this compact is that it has awesome functions and ease of use - My background is in DSLRs and big HD video cameras, but it was impractical for me to take the two on holiday so I checked out some reviews and brought this.

While there were some issues in transferring videos to the laptop these were minor and could be resolved easily with a bit of research.

Things you may want to know about this lovely gadget: The HD video quality is excellent - Slow Motion video looks really smart and also you can play around with the settings to your hearts content. You can also remote operate this camera from your smartphone or tablet - which is amazingly useful for me as I shoot videos about food for my website and this has some great settings to do that. Allowing me to operate machinery while the camera is on a stand and use a tablet to control it. While the remote operating functions aren't as in depth as on the camera, they are many and highly functional and will help serve you get the perfect little videos and shots that you want with more ease.

If you are thinking of getting this do make sure you get a nice little bag/case for it and also an SD card that holds at least 32gb. I also brought a spare battery and battery charger for this as I did use this thing to the max. Also the screen is very reflective so if you do go somewhere sunny you are going to have problems viewing what you are shooting so make sure you get a screen overlay/protector for it which will reduce the reflection.
