If you're looking for the perfect travel camera, you may have just found it.

Over the week that I’ve been using the Panasonic TZ5 I have come to really like it, and will miss it when I have to give it back. It is a well designed and solidly made camera which is tough enough to survive quite a bit of rough treatment. It handles...

Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ5

 

The idea behind the TZ5 is simple and brilliant: it's barely bigger than most compact cameras, and slim enough to slip into a pocket, yet its lens has a 10x zoom that starts at a wide angle 28mm focal length. This is perfect for anyone who wants to...

It's not big, but it goes a long way. A great lens and screen for a pocket-sized unit.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 has an extensive zoom range extending from very wide to telephoto angles of view. The 10x Leica DC 28-280mm (equivalent) lens provides focal lengths to suit almost every style and subject, in a single very useful unit. The...

A 28mm wide angle lens and 10x optical zoom means that you don't have to crush bridges to get the shot.

Good lens quality; Great build; Wide lens; 10x optical zoom in thin body; Lovely colour reproduction

Low ISO images aren't brilliant

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5

 

The LumixDMC-TZ5 is a nine-megapixel compact camera from Panasonic with a three-inch LCD, 10x optical and 4x digital zoom. The Lumix may measure just 59x103x37mm and weighs 259g, but it has a 28mm wide-angle Leica DC Vario-Elmar lens. The good In these...

The TZ5 costs a chunk more than an economy class camera but the upgrade is well worth it. This all-in-one camera has a superb lens, great ease of use and one of the best LCDs you’ll find on any compact. Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 is tagged with camera,...

Optical zoom at its optimum

Although it’s not the most compact of compacts – it’ll only fit into your jeans back pocket if you’re not planning to bend down – not everyone wants a tiny camera. The upside of the TZ5’s size is a 3in screen on the back, plus room to spare for...

The Panasonic Lumix TZ5 has been a best seller for many months - and after reviewing this camera - it's easy to see why. The camera offers an excellent wide angle 10x optical zoom lens with image stabilisation, all in a relatively compact body that...

An impressive lens for a compact - but is it really a compact at all? David Fearon finds out.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ4 & Lumix DMC-TZ5

 

The world's favourite superzoom series strikes again!

Good highlight detail, Price on the TZ4, Handling

Underexposure issues, Flat colours

It’s a bit of a shame that even at this price, neither camera offers manual exposure or support for shooting Raw images. Nevertheless, both cameras are worthy upgrades with good images and an otherwise healthy dose of features. The better screen and...
