Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 review

I have this camera for a few months now and I must say that I am really pleased with the results. Of course, the low light pictures are not as crispy as they will be from a pricey DSLR, but in most of the conditions the image quality is more than just acceptable. We've taken the camera to Akaslompolo, Finland in March and the battery lasted for almost 5 days (under heavy cold conditions (-15 Centigrade)). The pictures with a lot (and I mean a lot) of snow are not over exposed or anything at all. Also the startup and auto focus times are sufficient for me (although they may be a bit slower than a DSLR).

I would highly recommend this camera to everybody who wants a 28mm wide angle and a 280mm zoom in a portable format.


Low light conditions produce some noise, although you cannot really make that a problem considering the type of camera this is.
