Based on 59 user reviews this camera has an average user rating of 83 out of 100.

Panasonic Digital Cameras Have Good Reviews

On average Panasonic compact camera digital cameras have good ratings compared to other brands as do all digital cameras produced by Panasonic.

Good Size

One Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ55 reviewer mentioned in their reviews that the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ55 was compact. Two years ago Pocket-Lint.com said on Pocket Lint “It seems to be selfie season, as Panasonic steps on board the flip-up screen compact camera express with the Lumix TZ55”.

Good Screen / Viewfinder

One person said that it had a good screen.
