Panasonic Lumix TZ90 review: The ultimate travel camera?

 

If you're looking for the best all-round near-pocketable travel zoom camera then the TZ90 is the one. Some low-light and full extension issues can

Adds tilt-angle screen ; Easy touchscreen control ; 30x zoom versatility in pocketable body ; Mode dial and lens control ring for easy adjustment and functionality ; 4K Photo is useful

Low-light and full zoom limitations due to limited maximum aperture ; Image quality in low-light isn’t the greatest (especially versus 1-inch sensors) ; Viewfinder will be overkill for some

Panasonic has owned the do-it-all pocketable travel zoom market for some years - and the Lumix TZ90 continues to show exactly why. This versatile, easy-to-use yet advanced camera outs its near competition in almost every regard, making it the...

Panasonic Lumix TZ90 review

 

With 4K and a big zoom, this is a nigh-on perfect travel cam

Huge optical zoom for a compact ; Useful 4K skills ; 180-degree tilting touchscreen ; Room for a viewfinder

A tad larger than some compacts ; Not great in low light

A tidy, versatile travel camera with lots of reach and decent image quality

Panasonic Lumix ZS70 / TZ90 review

 

Panasonic‘s travel zoom line gets a selfie-friendly update

Very good zoom range ; Selfie functionality works very well ; Very effective image stabilization ; 4K very competitive at this level

Viewfinder very small ; Occasional lag upon start-up ; Grip could be better ; Soft results at wide-angle

The Lumix ZS70 / TZ90 boasts enough control to satisfy a broad range of users, and performs well across both stills and video recording. It’s not quite a great camera, but if you’re happy to accept a handful of shortcomings you’ll find it to be a very...
