Photography Blog has put Panasonic’s Lumix DMC-TZ40 through its paces and we’re thrilled to report they have given it their Essential award and an impressive 5 stars, viewing the camera as a significant step forward for Panasonic’s “wildly popular” travel-zoom range.
The review notes that the “TZ40 is veritably stuffed to the gills with cutting-edge features, while the combination of a 20x zoom, effective stabilisation system and good image quality is hard to resist.” Features called out include the increase in megapixel count from 14 to 18, and the new 60/50p and High Speed modes for videographers.
The inclusion of a touchscreen interface, built-in wi-fi connectivity and GPS, a 5-axis image stabilisation system, a fast burst mode, and high-resolution screen, all in a smaller and lighter package than the TZ40‘s predecessor, “makes it easy to see why we like the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40 even more than last year’s model.”
With a conclusion that the “Lumix DMC-TZ40 is Panasonic’s best ever travel-zoom camera and a worthy winner of our Essential award”, it’s a smart choice for photographers looking for a high performance camera.
