26 Reasons For

Panasonic Cameras Have Good Reviews

Panasonic has good average ratings for its compact cameras as well as across its entire digital camera range compared to other brands.

Good Size

One person who bought the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ55 reckoned that it was compact. Pocket-Lint.com wrote on Pocket Lint two years ago “It seems to be selfie season, as Panasonic steps on board the flip-up screen compact camera express with the Lumix TZ55” in their review of this digital camera.

Good Screen / Viewfinder

One Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ55 owner wrote in their reviews that it had a good screen.

Supports Wi-Fi

The DMC-TZ55 supports wi-Fi, unlike most of the other cameras that have been around for around the same time as the DMC-TZ55 which do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other cameras which support wi-Fi to this camera and we think the Samsung WB350F[plb_2134241_price], and the Nikon Coolpix S5300[plb_2272796_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

If you are looking for a digital camera with a better memory card type then you might also want to look at the Canon 105[plb_377573_price] (HC MMC+|MMC|MMC+|SD|SDHC|SDXC), or the Sony DSC-WX10[plb_595125_price] (MS Duo|MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG|SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.
