Awards 2010 - Best consumer compact 2010


Panasonic Lumix TZ8

Awards 2010 - Panasonic Lumix TZ8

Panasonic has a long tradition of producing excellent compact cameras in its Lumix range - it scooped this award last year. Despite strong competition from the likes of Canon, Nikon and Fuji, Panasonic has pulled off the trick again with the TZ8. The 12MP compact is the travel photographer's dream. It boasts a 25mm wideangle 12x Leica optical zoom lens with Power O.I.S, an HD video mode, full manual control and Panasonic's Intelligent Auto mode, as well as an ample LCD screen. Overall, this is as complete a consumer compact as you could wish for.
