|Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10 digital camera review : Panasonic has had a lot of success with its TZ-series, and if it’s up to Panasonic, this success will last a little while longer. The new Panasonic Lumix TZ10 is the newest camera in the TZ-series, this time with built-in GPS. Strangely enough, GPS is only slowly being included as a standard specification by the camera manufacturers. Smartphones and GPS are slowly becoming the standard in mobile phones, but many interesting solutions can also be imagined for the camera in which GPS plays a role.
Panasonic DMC-TZ10 camera with GPS navigation
On a technical level, the integration of GPS in a digital camera is not exactly flawless. There are a few things which can disrupt the GPS signal, such as the LCD display and the image sensor, which means that there are a few ‘tricks’ necessary to avoid this problem. The sensor of the Panasonic TZ10 camera has a resolution of 12.1 megapixels and a Leica 12x optical wide angle zoom lens (25-300 mm) makes all-round photography possible. The display has a large format of 3 inches and a high resolution of 460.000 dots, which makes for an excellent view of the display. There is no optical viewfinder, but generally you won’t miss it.

The format is nice and compact, for a mega zoom camera. While shooting, your surroundings won’t be aware of the fact that you can optically zoom in on subjects 12x, which is ideal to shoot spontaneously without being noticed. The handy format invites you take the camera with you often. The small, but present grip offers enough of a sturdy grip to be able to shoot stably. The Panasonic Lumix TZ10’s built-in optical stabilizer helps prevent movement blur.
