HZ15W vs. Panasonic TZ5
Mar 14, 2009

Hello all. Wow a Samsung forum, excellent.
Got a question on the two cameras, was 3.

I've been considering, like many other people, the Panasonic ZS3, Canon SX200IS, and the Samsung HZ15W.

Since the Canon is mono sound and cannot zoom and doesn't focus while shooting video, its just about off my list as of now.
The Panasonic doesn't have freaking manual controls! Hate that.

The lense is better on the Pana though and its focal range is better IMO 25-300 vs. samsung 24-240.

I could live maybe with manual controls since I had and then sold my Panasonic TZ5. I missed a few shots due to no manual controls, but not a lot. I DID NOT like how much noise was in the picures at all. This was my biggest complaint.

How is the noise level in the Samsung vs. the TZ5? Anyone ever compare side by side?
