Panasonic Lumix TZ40 review


Panaosnic Lumix TZ40 review – Design


Panasonic Lumix TZ40 front angle


Whereas in the past the TZ models haven't changed much in terms of their design, the Panasonic Lumix TZ40 benefits from a few tweaks to the body. The rubber handgrip is slightly chunkier, giving you more to wrap your hands around. This, combined with new On/Off and playback buttons make it enjoyable to operate, while the breakdown of the menu into five sub-categories helps gain quick access to the camera's wireless connectivity options and GPS settings.

We found there's very little to fault with the Panasonic TZ40's design other than a few of the buttons being on the small side. The way the lens sits flush to the body when it's inactive is excellent, and although it's not an exciting feature, it does mean you can slip it inside your trouser pocket much like you would with a smartphone without it snagging or getting caught.
