Panasonic TZ57 (ZS45) review

 

A 20x optical zoom, inbuilt Wi-Fi and full manual control are standard on the TZ70's little brother

Manual control ; 20x optical zoom ; Inbuilt Wi-Fi

No raw format shooting ; No touchscreen ; Can't change autofocus point

A well-rounded camera which offers a decent amount for your money. Ideal for travelling with, but if you can stretch your budget, it's worth investigating the TZ70 too.

Panasonic Lumix TZ57 Review

 

Reviewed: The Panasonic Lumix TZ57 - the travel zoom camera with a 20x optical zoom lens, and a tilting 3inch "Selfie" screen.

Good battery life ; Good image quality ; Good 20x optical zoom lens ; Tilting 3inch screen ; 10fps continuous shooting ; Full manual controls ; Selfie features

Wi-Fi button position - easily mistaken for on/off switch ; Touch-screen would have helped with Selfie shots ; Selfie features, such as background defocus can't be used with flash

The Panasonic Lumix TZ57 is a compact travel zoom camera with a useful 20x optical zoom lens, it has a tilting screen that lets you take the love-it or hate-it "Selfie" or group shot. With full HD video recording, and good image quality, as well as...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ57 Review

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ57 (also known as the DMC-ZS45) is pitched as a travel camera and was announced at the same time as the TZ70, being a more affordable version of that camera.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ57 offers a good range of specifications for the price, coming in at significantly cheaper than its more advanced sibling, the TZ70. That said, if you do have a little more to spend, it’s worth checking out the top of the...

Panasonic ZS45 Review

 

At the start of 2014, Panasonic launched the Lumix ZS35, a pocket-friendly camera with a powerful 20x optical zoom lens. A year down the road, it makes this versatile selfie-friendly shooter even more attractive with the Panasonic ZS45 -- alternately...

The Panasonic ZS45 will be available in early spring, listing for ~US$300.

Panasonic Lumix ZS45 Camera Review: Powerful Pocket Zoom

 

Perfect for the frequent traveler on a budget, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS45 will help you capture your vacation memories easily -- especially in bright light. Its 20x optical zoom performance is impressive and accurate, and its interface is wonderfully...

Small, lightweight body ; User-friendly interface ; Easy-to-use wireless: Powerful zoom with little distortion ; Plethora of fun filters

Narrow ISO light sensitivity range limits use in low light ; Somewhat slow zoom

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS45 pocket zoom camera captures your memories in great color and detail, but falls short in low light.
