If you're travelling to wide open spaces, you'll need a wide-angle camera

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 review

 

Is Panasonic shooting wide with its 28mm lens?

Lens and zoom range make for flexibility ; Fantastic build and lens quality ; Decent value

Poor in low light ; Burst mode not good enough

There's really only one reason to buy the TZ2: its compact, wide-angle, far-reaching, stabilised lens. But it's a good reason

10x optical zoom and large ISO range make this compact a great contender.

With an effective stabiliser and reasonably high ISO shots, this traveler compact is the one to beat for sharp shots

Merely having a long zoom isn't enough for a camera to succeed these days - big lenses have to be squeezed into stylish packages to raisethe pulses of increasingly fussy consumers

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 is a 6.0 megapixel version of the TZ3 - also released today. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 features largely the same feature set as the TZ3 including the 10x optical zoom but in addition to the smaller megapixel image sensor...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2

 

Priced as a quality camera. Nice looking, stylish camera. Lightweight and easy to use. Takes great photos. Not quite 5 years old though, and with very little use, the sensor goes on it. I tried it get it repaired in a camera shop but, was advised that...

Style & ease of use.

Sensor went on it, not worth repairing according to camers shops.

Short life span, otherwise great

 

This camera has been great, but after about 4 years of light use, and having been well looked after, the image sensor has failed, so it is no longer working and not viable to repair. Camera takes good pictures, and is easy to use with great features,...

Great features, easy to use, good pics.

Short life, only lasted 4 years with limited use.

OK

 

I have loved the camera until now with all its features but would have expected that it would last more than three years given that it has not been over used & has been treated with kid gloves during that period. I Was thinking about buying a new Lumix...

I agree completely with both the previous reviews, having had very satisfied use with the camera over the past 3 years. A very good camera with lots of useful features.

Have just attempted to use the camera & now find that on turning on the camera everything appears normal for the first 30 secs then a pink spot appears in the screen spreading out from the centre of the screen till it nearly covers three quarters of...

Excellent

 

Before i bought mine i did a lot of research into all the models available - closest competitor was the sony touch screen models and the olympus waterproof model (One saleswoman advised against the olympus because she had lots of unhappy customers...

takes great photos! has many different setting that make it perfect for all photo situations from party snaps to landscapes to macro close up shots. Battery life is good. The build quality of this camera is excellent - it is solid and strong - made...

No free carry bag :( No screen protector (mine has not scratched in over a year of use - but it would be handy) Not really small enough to put in ur pocket and take to a party - its also a bit heavier than ur average compact plastic camra - but this...

Good

 

We thought this camera was pretty good value at this price for a 10x zoom camera. Most 10x zooms are quite big and bulky but this camera is nice & compact that I can keep it in my handbag even. The real close up shots we've taken have all been pretty...

Its small & compact yet has 10x optical zoom. The wide angle lens is great, gives you just that little bit extra in the shot. Has a nice large 2.5" screen.

The shots can appear to be a little grainy in night shots using the flash.
