A Concise Review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 Compact Camera by DPReview.com

Panasonic LUMIX TZ5 Digital Camera

“In conclusion the TZ5 is a versatile, user friendly photographic tool that can produce good results outdoors in decent light,” goes the verdict from DPReview.com.

But the camera “struggles when it comes to taking pictures indoors and in low light (the flash performs quite well though). If you are looking for a travel or walkaround camera that is quick enough for the occasional spontaneous street shot and can also produce great quality HD video you should definitely have a closer look at the TZ5. If low light photography or indoor social snapping is more your thing or if you’re into ‘pixel-peeping’ you might want to look out for alternatives.”

The $300 TZ5 is a 9-megapixel compact camera from Panasonic which features a 10x Leica zoom lens and OIS image stabilization. It has since been updated by a newer model, the TZ50 which adds Wi-Fi capability.
