PopPhoto have reviewed the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 a 9.1 megapixel (CCD) digital camera with 10x optical zoom (28mm – 280mm), 3.0 inch LCD with 460,000 pixel resolution and 20 megabytes of internal memory.
They write: “Simply put, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 handles noise well at all ISOs, without sacrificing much resolution. It’s less than a 5% decline in rez between ISO 100 and 800, and less than a 20% drop between ISO 100 and 1600. We’ d recommend setting ISOMax at 800 under most conditions (and use EV compensation to gain an extra stop or two), and only jump up to ISO 1600 when absolutely necessary… It is a point and shoot in the truest sense of the word — but a point and shoot that usually delivers images that will satisfy even discerning photographers who want to travel light. Throw in 720p HD video capture with full optical zoom during capture, one of the highest resolution LCDs in a pocketable camera and it gets even better.”
