The Lumix offers a luminous shooting experience

The Lumix TZ5 is one of the best compact point and shoot cameras for your buck on the market right now. I've traded in my bulky SLR camera for this model because it offers a powerful zoom, several shooting modes, and a superior Auto mode for quick shooting.

My only gripe with the camera is its slow shutter speed.

What did you think of this review?

About this product


The 9.1-megapixel Panasonic DMC-TZ5 packs a 28mm wide-angle, 10x optical zoom Leica DC lens in a compact design, ideal for the active photographer who needs a versatile camera.

Also new to the TZ5 is the Venus Engine IV, Panasonic's new high-performance image processing LSI. The Venus Engine IV produces higher-quality pictures than its predecessor, the Venus Engine III, by using a more advanced signal processing system. The new Venus Engine IV also improves noise reduction, elevates the detection accuracy and corrective effects in both Mega O.I.S. and Intelligent ISO and reduces the shutter release time lag.
