Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS40

 

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS40 camera is a 30x shooter with an EVF and Raw shooting, but it's expensive.

Sharp lens. 30x zoom range. Integrated EVF. Lens control ring. GPS. Wi-Fi. 1080p60 video.

Images on the noisy side. External charger not included. Difficulties with Lumix Club sharing service. Pricey.

To make a long story short, I wasn't able to login to the Lumix Club Web site with an account that was created on the camera, and the camera couldn't access any accounts created via the iOS app, nor one I had created when reviewing the Panasonic Lumix...

Review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS40

 

You don't need a big camera in order to take crisp, detailed and balanced pictures. Premium compact cameras aim to be the best of both worlds: small like a point-and-shoot; powerful and programmable like a DSLR. That's the space the Panasonic Lumix...

The pictures the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS40 takes are by far better than the average point-and-shoot or smartphone, even when in Auto mode. However, at this price, you want to get the best pictures possible. If you're not comfortable working in one of...

Panasonic Lumix TZ60

 

A 30x optical zoom, built-in viewfinder and neat design make this the perfect travel compact

Great, high quality design ; Shoots Raw and JPEG ; Bright and clear screen ; Huge and reliable zoom lens

Only so-so above ISO 400 ; No touchscreen ; No standalone battery charger

What the TZ60 doesn't have, however, is a touchscreen display. Instead there’s a bright 3-inch, 920k-dot TFT LCD coupled with a 200k-dot Electronic Viewfinder. Although its resolution is quite low, the EVF does have a good refresh rate and is a decent...
