Panasonic dmc tz80

Purchased the camera in 2017.  I mainly take mountain scenery both photo and video. the spec looked great for me especially the great zoom.

unfortunately I cannot get good pictures out of this camera. the focusing is terrible. I cannot get it to focus. In fact it seems to choose a focus point and that part of the picture is the only part in focus. Most pictures are unusable.

The truth is my phone takes a much better picture in every way be it focus colour or light!

I have tried manual and all auto settings. The auto intelligent setting looks at a distant mountain scene and decides its a flower close up. The manual doesn't make a difference which settings I choose.

I cannot fault the video. It takes good video.

I tried to return the camera and swap it for one that I could use.

both the shop and Panasonic did not want to know. they were totally unhelpful.

A complete waste of money there must be a decent camera out there?

but I'm scared to spend another £350 and waste that again.

A very bad experience.
