|First thing to say is that I am no photographer. However with this camera I am starting to feel like one. Real easy to use and perfect for an absolute beginner like me. Lots of cool features and settings that can help turn even the simplest pic into something that looks really good.|
A brilliant little camera
The performance of the camera is very good all round. I took it out with my Nikon SLR and took several pictures on both cameras. I was tempted to think, why do I bother with an SLR? For most of the time, the TZ70 photos are quite as good as the SLR. OK, I choose to use the SLR for some very specialised purposes and love the interchangeable lenses, but for general use, give me a pocketable compact any time - and this TZ70 is as good as any.|
The TZ70 has some fantastic features. One is the ability to take a panoramic photograph by pressing the shutter and turning your body round slowly. None of that merging of separate images you used to have to do before on the computer - it does it all in camera. Also if you like HDR images, the TZ70 can be set to take all three in one go and merge them together in camera. Amazing stuff. There are so many features like this is would be difficult to list them all in one short review here, but explore the manual and you'll soon be experimenting with them all. If you just want to take photographs however, leave it on Intelligent Auto and the camera will detect what sort of image it's looking at and choose the best settings for you.
