Defective ZS15 (TZ25)? Comparison to ZS3 (TZ6)
Oct 25, 2012

My friend has a ZS15 which she bought after she dropped her ZS1 in a lake.  She told me she didn't like the camera because the images coming out of it were not very good.  I have a ZS3 which had been sitting in storage for a bit and I decided to test her camera vs mine.

It would appear that her ZS15 is putting out soft images.  I used iA mode on both cameras.  From what I'm seeing, the ZS3 is sharper and shows a bit more detail.  Is there a way she can set up her ZS15 to come out with shots closer to the ZS3 or is she stuck with these soft images?  Maybe her camera is defective?
