  • In summary the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ35 is admittedly cheaper than the more expensive TZ40 model, but it does concede quite a lot of ground to achieve the more aggressive price-tag, and it doesn't offer that many upgrades over the previous TZ25 model. Therefore, while the DMC-TZ35 is certainly a very competent travel-zoom, it doesn't offer enough to convince us to save the extra outlay for its big brother, or more seriously for Panasonic one of its main rivals.


  • The pricing and feature-set of TZ35 / ZS25 makes sense when compared to Panasonic's 2013 models and comes Recommended if you don't need the extras of the TZ40 / ZS30, but it's well worth keeping an eye on the price of last year's TZ30 / ZS20 while stocks last. At the time of writing, the TZ30 / ZS20 was discounted to a similar point as the new TZ35 / ZS25 in some regions, yet offered a touch-screen, GPS, 1080p video and faster continuous shooting in addition to the same 20x zoom range.


  • Overall, this is a very good camera that should be one of the top considerations for those looking for the ideal travel compact that offers just a little bit extra than the bog standard options available on the market.


  • With on-board GPS, wi-fi and NFC connectiivity, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 is one of the most well-appointed rugged cameras currently available, making it easy to record where your photos were taken and share them with friends and family. While the image quality from the 16 megapixel sensor isn't bad, there are much better cameras available at this price-point, albeit without the tough credentials, so you really need to make sure that you'll use the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT5 to the full to warrant the extra outlay.


  • The Lumix DMC-TS5 is a good choice for those seeking a rugged camera with a robust feature set that includes a well-implemented GPS, plus Wi-Fi. The camera takes good quality photos for its class, has a great LCD, and offers a top-notch movie mode. However, its lens is on the slow side, and the flash is very weak. The Wi-Fi system could also be a lot more user-friendly.


  • The FT5 is a steady improvement on the FT4, we said that an improved screen would be a significant improvement and Panasonic have introduced a 3 inch screen on the new model. You can go deeper underwater to 13m, the GPS appears to activate quicker and the new model also has built-in Wi-Fi. Other than that, much has remained the same, with good image quality in an extremely tough body.


  • Priced at around &poundl;449.99 / $499.95, the LX7 is another recent high-end model that further blurs the line between compact and larger-sensor cameras. Consumers have never had so much choice at this price-point - premium compact, mid-range compact system camera and even an entry-level DSLR are all available.

    Overall, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7 is an excellent premium compact camera. Its fast lens, performance, and manual controls will make enthusiasts drool, while those just starting out can get great results using Panasonic's Intelligent Auto mode. There's very little to dislike about the LX7, with my main issues being redeye, slow buffer flush times when shooting RAW images, and vertical lines in panoramas. Aside from that, the LX7 is a first-rate camera that I can highly recommend.
