    Default Handbag Camera!?

    HI Everyone, I am looking for a good quality "handbag" camera! I find when we are out and about and it's not convenient to take my SLR I miss not having a camera, one always see something you want to take a pic of, so I am looking for a good quality compact that I can carry around in my handbag, I have just read about the Panasonic Lumix TZ30 which sounds good. Any comments or advice on compacts would be greatly appreciated..Caroline

    Hi.

    The TZ30 is up there with the best of them.

    I shoot with the TZ7 (It got the highest rating of Essential when it came out, beating Highly Recommended.)

    Here are some test shots taken with my TZ7 http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk...highlight=zoom

    Have a read of its main rivals here http://www.photographyblog.com/revie...review/rivals/

    And don't forget. Post processing is an important part of photography and should be used to sharpen and enhance pictures taken with any camera. If you don't have an imaging editor, then use the one in my signature below. There are 32 video tutorials to get you started. The most useful is the http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/Videoes/...06_Levels.html and for even more adjustment. The http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/Videoes/...07_Curves.html is a must (it's my favourite all-in-one adjuster). My Resize-Crop-Sharpen tutorial below, will get your pics ready for the internet or whatever

    Cheers!

    Many thanks Chris, it's reassuring when a camera has been given a high rating! just looking for the best buy, I think I will pop into my local Jessops to see what price they can come up with! Caroline

    Yes, I always think it's a good idea to have a play before you buy!

    I agree Chris, I phoned our local Jessops store yesterday but they haven't any in store, I hope to ring our Panasonic store in Exeter later to see if they have any in store!..Caroline
