Panasonic TZ80

 

The Panasonic TZ80 is a compact camera for people who want to have it all. It has a huge 30x optical zoom, but is very small and can even shoot 4K video.

Panasonic Lumix TZ80 review: Can't Touch This

 

The Panasonic TZ range is hugely popular when it comes to dedicated compact cameras, especially if you're looking for big zoom in a relatively small package. In 2016 the range is diversifying: 2015's TZ70 is replaced by the similar TZ80 (or SZ60 for...

Touchscreen controls added, 4K video capture, fast autofocus, 30x zoom versatility in pocketable body, image stabilisation, mode dial and lens control ring for easy adjustment and functionality

No tilt/vari-angle screen, lens limitations at full zoom in low-light, 4K/Post Focus mode fun but not must-buy features, autofocus slows a lot in low light

If you're after an affordable compact camera with usable viewfinder and considerable zoom in a pocketable package then there's nothing better than the Lumix TZ80. The addition of touch controls finally bring it into the modern age - although the lack...

Panasonic TZ80/SZ60 review

 

Panasonic's evolution of its superzoom travel compact is now playing second fiddle to the new TZ100

30x optical zoom ; Touch-sensitive screen ; 4K video/photo modes

Image smoothing at high ISOs ; Loss of detail at 30x zoom ; Small viewfinder

The TZ80 goes back to an 18Mp sensor after the 12 megapixel device in the TZ70. This seems to have had a negative impact upon image quality in low light, which is a shame because the featureset it great.

A replacement to last year's model, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ80 is a powerful camera in a compact size. It's designed to be used as an all-rounder camera, thanks to its superzoom lens and 4K video recording, but what is the image quality like? We ran...

Panasonic Lumix TZ80 (ZS60) Review

 

We review the latest travel zoom from Panasonic, the Lumix TZ80, with an 18 megapixel sensor and 4K video and photo recording.

4K video recording ; 4K photo features ; 4K live cropping ; Post Focus technology ; MicroUSB charging (instead of proprietary cable) ; Dual axis electronic level ; Eye-detection sensor for EVF ; 5-axis image stabilisation ; Dual axis electronic level ;...

Small EVF ; Purple fringing ; Post focus is better on larger sensor cameras

The Panasonic Lumix TZ80 brings 4K video and 4K photo shooting to the travel zoom market, at an excellent price point, meaning you get great "bang for buck" which should make this an excellent seller, particularly if the price drops over time, as is...

Panasonic Lumix ZS60 review

 

Panasonic ZS60 with 30x zoom is everything a travel camera should be, but it's time to ditch the small sensor.

At $449, the ZS60 is a good travel camera overall. It’s relatively light, and it’s very compact considering it’s packing a 30x zoom. The older ZS50, based on customer ratings, was very popular, and while manufacturers oftentimes get criticized for not...

Panasonic's ZS60 camera lets you adjust focus after you shoot

 

Along with a bevy of shooting options, including 4K video and stills, the compact 30x zoom camera announced at CES 2016 uses high-speed autofocus to make sure the subject you want is sharp.
