Customer Review

on 15 June 2009
I spent many happy hours with my Lumix TZ5 (the predecessor of the TZ7)and appreciated its superb HD, widescreen, video clips almost as much as its brilliant, multi-format stills.
It's true what they say about Leica lenses.
Shooting stills in 16 by 9 format enabled me to fill the screen on my Panasonic Viera TV just by popping the SD card into the slot provided.
All this and more applies to the magnificent TZ7.
The extra few mil on the wide-angle end of the zoom gives great coverage and has the additional advantage of making the hand-held video sequences that much steadier. ALWAYS shoot your hand-held video sequences at full wide angle; for any other focal lengths use a Gorilla Pod or a screw-in pod cushion.
The two movie modes are a great idea and make the camera sort-of future proof as more editing software trickles onto the market.
My other camera is a Canon 5D and the TZ7 comes close to the results from this top-line DSLR.
To sum-up... a little smasher at an amazingly low price.
