Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1: Reviews, strengths, and weaknesses

REVIEW 1 (Digital Camera Resource Page):

The camera has excellent zoom (10x) and 5.0 megapixels, without the bulk of other cameras that usually has these two features. It has a well built body and has optical image stabilization. It also can delete several photos instead of one at a time. It has a movie mode. It does have it’s disadvantages as well. The camera however, has a tendency to be a bit noisy, and has a problem with red eye.

REVIEW 2 (Digital Photography Review):

It has an AF response time. It has a powerful zoom in a compact design and is perfect for travel. To help even more with travel, it has many built-in scene modes. It has a high sensitivity feature which increases shutter speed. Its auto focus is a bit faster than most other cameras. It has a high resolution.

I have a found doubts about this review. It’s lavish praise about the camera makes me think that the author is biased.

REVIEW 3 (Imaging Resource):

It has an excellent stabilization feature. It has a great 10x optical zoom. All sorts of built in scene modes. It has a decent-sized LCD display, helpful for its option of bringing up several pictures on the screen at once. It has a great, customized shot-to-shot time. However, the LCD monitor has a tendency to be inaccurate. It’s flash range is limited. Has some lens flare problems.

19 built in scene modes.

3 WEAKNESSES:

LCD can sometimes be inaccurate.
