Strengths: loaded with features; zoom is terrific, large screen
Weakness: no view finder.
I've owned several Canons, this is a much better camera. Have had it almost 1 yr, looking to buy another one for my girlfriend. I have absolutley no problem with quality or battery life. A great camera.

Broke in 6 months, Panasonic NO HELP!
Strengths: Big Zoom
Weakness: Poor Operation in Low Light, Weak Construction, Short Battery Life
Bought in December, stopped working June! I take great care of my equipment and LCD screen internally cracked, sent to Panasonic and they would not honor warranty. Even when the camera worked the battery life was awful and the low light weaker than any camera I have ever used. I am semi pro and have Nikon, Canon and Sony cameras that all work better. Sony, Canon & Nikon service exceptional....

Even when the camera worked the battery life was awful and the low light weaker than any camera I have ever used. I am semi pro and have Nikon, Canon and Sony cameras that all work better. Sony, Canon & Nikon service exceptional. Panasonic the worst ever! DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA or anything from Panasonic because if it breaks for any reason they will not honor warranty!

Panasonic TZ5 Camera
Strengths: Pocket Size, Super (10x) Zoom, Wide-Angle, HD movie
This is one of the best pocket cameras available with chock-full of features and excellent performance. one of the best-rated cameras in all reviews, it can do HD video too on inexpensive SDHC memory card. pics are sharp and vibrant. a bit excessive noise reduction is an issue at higher ISO but nothing to worry about in normal well-lit conditions. i love this camera and highly recommend this

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 (Silver)
THE GOOD: Attractive, functional design; generally above-average photo quality for its class; nice, useful feature set; lens can zoom during movie capture. THE BAD: Aggressive smoothing reduces detail in indoor shots, even at low ISO sensitivities; modest performance; poorly placed microphone. THE BOTTOM LINE: Though its not perfect, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5s compact midrange megazoom feature...
