Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 review

 

If you walked into a store and saw Panasonic's Lumix DMC-ZS8 and its Lumix DMC-ZS10 next to each other, you might not immediately see the differences, let alone $100 worth of them. Even after picking them up, you might notice only that the ZS10 has a...

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 is a basic compact megazoom with very good photo quality and shooting performance for its class, as well as long battery life.

The ZS8 is somewhat expensive for what it's offering.

The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 is a fine compact megazoom, if not the best value.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 Preview

 

Panasonic has added two new models to their popular ZS-series of compact long-zoom digicams, the Lumix DMC-ZS10 and Lumix DMC-ZS8. Both offer a powerful 16x optical zoom lens with their proven MEGA O.I.S. stabilization system, 3.0-inch LCDs, and...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ18 Review

 

The Lumix DMC-TZ18 (also known as the DMC-ZS8 in the USA) is Panasonic's latest travel-zoom camera, featuring a 16x 24-384mm lens, 14.1 megapixel CCD sensor, 720p HD movies, and fast continuous shooting at either 10fps or 5.5ps with continuous...

The Lumix DMC-TZ18 is a solid enough addition to Panasonic's travel-zoom camera lineup, improving on last year's TZ8 model, but we'd rather save up for its more accomplished bigger brother, the TZ20, which additionally offers GPS tracking, a...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8

 

A competent long zoom digital camera with fewer frills than its ZS10 brother--unless you consider the 24-384mm lens a frill. An excellent pocket companion.(#2 in our 2011 Travel Zoom Shootout!)Panasonic Lumix ZS8 Overviewby Mike Pasini and Stephanie...

It's just great to have a 16x zoom in a compact camera. Especially when that range starts at a 24mm equivalent, a real wide-angle. That's the real value of a camera like the Panasonic ZS8. You can take the Panasonic ZS8 anywhere and it will be equally...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ18 / ZS8

 

Let's start with the lens, the headline feature of any super-zoom camera. After sticking with the same 12x zoom for a couple of generations, Panasonic has boosted the range to 16x on its 2011 TZ / ZS models. The vast majority of that extension takes...

Broad and well-corrected 16x zoom covers every situation., 720p video with zooming and continuous AF., Image quality a little better than pricier TZ20 / ZS10., Good auto and full manual control modes

Basic continuous shooting at full resolution., Modest 230k resolution screen., Minimal control over image quality - little if any tweaking., Record / play switch less intuitive than a plain play button

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ18 : A 16x zoom in a compact camera shell

One of the best compacts under £300 that lets users shoot with full manual control. If that’s what you’re looking for, you can't go wrong with the TZ18
