Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS15 (Lumix DMC-TZ25)

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS15 ($279) is a compact ultra zoom camera, and the little brother to the ZS20 that earned a mixed review when I reviewed it recently. Normally I don't review a pair of cameras that are this similar, but since there's a lot of...

Very good photo quality ; Packs a high quality 16X (24 - 384 mm) zoom lens into a small package ; Power OIS" image stabilization, with "active" mode for movies ; 3-inch LCD offers good outdoor/low light visibility ; Good selection of manual controls ;...

Occasional highlight clipping ; Redeye a problem; no removal tool in playback mode ; Photos taken in artificial light tend to have a yellow/brown color cast ; LCD seems a bit blurry (on my camera, at least) ; No RAW, manual focus, or WB bracketing...

While it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the more expensive ZS20 (the omission of GPS being the most significant), the DMC-ZS15 produces better-looking images, while maintaining the robust performance, competitive feature set, and ease of...

While it doesn't have the most Megapixels, zoom power, or features, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS15 is still a very good compact ultra zoom camera. It offers a nice zoom lens in a compact body, along with robust performance, very good photo quality, tons...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS15 Video Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS15 ($280) compact Mega Zoom is the company's second-in-command to the venerable Lumix DMC-ZS20. While the new ZS20 benefits from GPS, a longer 20x optical zoom lens and 60P HD video, the Lumix DMC-ZS15 shares the same sensor...
