  • The Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ10 is a very simple camera which is aimed at those who probably intend to use it as their holiday or family camera. If you have a smartphone with a half decent camera, then you might find that you already have something which is just as capable as the SZ10 - but of course you have to rely on battery life lasting you throughout the day.
    Otherwise, image quality is decent in good light.


  • The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ57 offers a good range of specifications for the price, coming in at significantly cheaper than its more advanced sibling, the TZ70. That said, if you do have a little more to spend, it’s worth checking out the top of the range camera as you get a fair bit more for the extra cash.


  • Comparing the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 with its predecessor, the TZ60, doesn’t reveal a huge amount of differences, so if you’re thinking about upgrading from that camera, it’s probably not worth it. Similarly, if you’re on the lookout for a bargain, you should now be able to pick up the older model for a good price and still be confident of having a good camera.
    That said, if you’re in the market for your first travel camera, then the TZ70 is a very good option. Images are great directly from the camera, while it should appeal to quite a few different types of photographer.


  • The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 is an ambitious compact camera with a big sensor, a wide-aperture lens, and 4K video recording, but it falls just short of top honors.


  • The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 is the most capable compact camera that we've ever reviewed, offering a mouth-watering combination of cutting edge technology, excellent image quality, and intuitive handling. There are still a few downsides - most notably the lack of a touchscreen or articulated LCD and a rather narrow control ring - but the new LX100 manages to pull off the trick of being both a technological tour-de-force and a camera that's a veritable joy to shoot with.


  • There may be smaller interchangeable lens cameras, but the LX100 is a joy to use. It gives you bags of control and produces high quality images. Just beware of flare when the sun is near the edge of the frame.


  • - Body materials feel a little plasticky compared to the Sony RX10.
    - Connector compartment door is fiddly to open and close.
    - Smartphone app used with built-in WiFi is a bit clunky and unituitive.
    - Plenty of dedicated, customizable controls keep you out of the menu system.
    - Bright, versatile 25-400mm eq. f/2.8-4 lens with very good optical performance is incredibly fun to shoot with.


  • The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a formidable still and video camera thanks to a big 1-inch sensor and 4K recording capability.


  • The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 is a premium bridge camera for a premium price. And yet, for anyone who requires 4K-video shooting without the need to change lenses, the FZ1000 is a so far unique product within its bridge camera class. But it’s not just about video; as that one-inch sensor and broad focal range equivalent to 24-400mm in 35mm film terms further attests: as it stands Panasonic’s latest bridge camera is arguably its most ‘future proofed’ yet.
