... ANOTHER CAMERA 'LUMES' I'm not sure why Panasonic thought 'Lumix' was a good name for a range of cameras. To those of us old enough, it sounds like a figment of Rambling Sid Rumpo's imagination. There's no doubting the camera's pedigree though, even if it does come from a manufacturer better ... Read review

Bye Bye, Viewfinder, Hallo Lumix

AdvantagesMore features than the usual pocket camera

DisadvantagesLarge manual needs a good read.

"...CAMERA 'LUMES'== I'm not sure why Panasonic thought 'Lumix' was a good name for a range of cameras. To those of us old enough, it sounds like a figment of Rambling Sid Rumpo's imagination. There's no doubting the camera's pedigree though, even if it does come from a manufacturer better known for TVs. A lens made by Leitz (aka Leica) with a 12x zoom range equivalent to a very wide (and very long) 25-300mm when compared to a 35mm film camera takes ..." Read review

Great buy for the price

Advantageseasy simple. perfect for holiday shots. Macro as a hobbie

Disadvantagesbutton are very small

"I was given this camera as a Christmas present last year. I do a lot of photography myself , which i mainly use my bigger camera (cannon EOS series). But for someone that wants to take photos as a hobbie. this is perfect. easy to carry about. and the menu is simple, has a good choice of features. Also the flash on this camera is amazing. it doesn't make the photo look to bright as you can change the blance . where as some flashes give the skin colour ..." Read review

Product Information for "Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ8" »

Manufacturer's product description

The 12.1-megapixel DMC-TZ8 features a 25mm wide-angle 12x optical zoom f/3.3-4.9 LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens (35mm camera equivalent: 25-300mm) in a compact body. The 25mm wide-angle lens has about twice the shooting area of the standard 35mm lens. The powerful 12x zoom can also be used in motion picture recording. In 3-megapixel resolution mode, the Extra Optical Zoom function provides additional magnification, extending the zoom power to 23.4x by using the center part of the CCD. The Intelligent Resolution (I.R) Technology gives a high resolution look to digital zoom images as well as ordinary images. The image is divided into contour areas, texture areas and smooth areas. And optimum image processing is applied to each type of area. This enables 16x Intelligent Zoom that achieves about 1.3 times the usual zoom magnification with almost no loss of image quality. The Intelligent Resolution Technology also achieves sharp images in modes that use fewer pixels to enable high sensitivity and high speed.
