Panasonic TZ5 Reviewed|
(Friday, July 25, 2008 - 15:08 EDT)
Though it has a 10x zoom the Panasonic TZ5 is still quite pocketable, a great digital camera for everyday carry.
The Panasonic TZ5 is about the same physically as its predecessor, with a new grip and a few shifted controls. Optical image stabilization gives the 28-280mm lens a little more crispness indoors and in low light, and the Panasonic TZ5's new 9.1-megapixel sensor serves up slightly smoother images. Perhaps because they couldn't make the Panasonic TZ5's 3-inch LCD any bigger, they packed in twice the number of pixels, raising resolution from 230,000 pixels to 460,000, great for viewing photos or videos. Overall, the Panasonic TZ5 delivers images that can be printed at up to 11x14 inches, with a high-quality and versatile 10x Leica zoom in a very small package.
