Our local store (UK) has two cameras next to each other on display.  One is labelled TZ70, the other TZ71.  Looking at the headline specs I can't see anything different between the two models. Does anyone know what the difference is?

I am a total newbie with cameras. I just point and shoot. I got the ZS3 several years ago and I just can't get crisp images. My iPhone 5 takes better pictures. Most of what I shoot is outdoors, in mountains, woods, up high while climbing, etc. The pictures I get with my Panasonic in Intelligent Auto or Auto are always dull, soft. Perfect scenery shots come out fuzzy and just off-looking. I guess I am trying to figure out if it's me, or the camera or some settings? I recently reset to factory...

Hi, Newbie here. I have been a happy TZ7 user with Panasonic's 40 meters underwater housing and it's underwater scene mode (which increases the red color to compensate for the effect of deep dive). I would like to upgrade to the latest ZS50/TZ70 or last year's ZS40/TZ60, but it seems that 1.  There is no u/w scene mode to increase the red. 2.  Panasonic no longer makes u/w housing for it. Questions: 1.  This is the case for ZS/TZ for the last several years.  Does it mean that Panasonic no...

I've had my TZ7 for over 5 years.  Both batteries still hold their charge well and the camera works perfectly.  Mostly it lives in my handbag for "just in case" but doesn't see much action. My son has taken it on his travels through Europe and my husband regularly takes it on trips into the back country.  Always point & shoot "idiot" mode - always it delivers!  In fact I feel quite humbled at times at what good photos they so effortlessly take while I agonise over settings, lens choice and...

Hi all. I'm a big fan of the ZS/TZ line.....is there a consensus as to which model had/has the best image quality?  I've heard the zs3, the zs7, and the zs15 were at the top of the list. Which would you guys say is #1?

My main camera is a D700, bag 'o lenses, etc. I have been using a Lumix ZS3 as a point and shoot and for underwater casual photography. I am looking to replace the ZS3 and am considering the V3. Can you guys give me any help in deciding whether or not the V3 would function as an easy p&s? I like the ability to change lenses but also am interested in the ability to put it in my pocket and go. Thank in advance.

Probably a daft question,, I should know this by now but,,, I'm looking to box up both my TZ6 & TZ7 compacts,, just not using them at the moment so the question is,,, Is it best to store them with the battery removed or not,, I'm thinking yes, the batt should be taken out but if there's no real need too, I"ll just leave them in place,, Roland.   http://www.flickr.com/photos/rolandb52/

I have cracked my view window on my new lumix.  Where can I get help with a replacement or is it now trash?

Dear All, We own a TZ7, and have mostly used it in full-auto (iA) mode. The results are acceptable for quick snapshots of our kids, but seeing the photos posted of flickr hints that we're missing out on something :-)What are your recommendations? Program mode? Scene modes? Use ISO: auto or Intelligent ISO? Neither? Which focus mode? Intended uses:- mostly for not quite static kids (playing),- simple portraits,- static family group shots,- landscapes? The Lumix is mostly used by my wife; when...

I've just upgraded from a 5 year old Panasonic TZ7 / ZS3 to the Canon SX700 and while I love the new Canon, I am having a little bit of difficulty trying to hold it comfortably with one hand (right hand). The problem is where to put my thumb.  The Panasonic had a dedicated grip area for a thumb on the back of the camera, but the Canon doesn't.  Without thinking, I keep putting my thumb on the SX700's blue "play" button, as that's roughly where the Panasonic's thumb grip area was, thus I end...
