â€œIn conclusion the TZ5 is a versatile, user friendly photographic tool that can produce good results outdoors in decent light,â€ goes the verdict from DPReview.com.
But the camera â€œstruggles 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.â€
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.
