Why Has it Scored 75?

multiple reviews mentioned that it has very good expert reviews and great user reviews with an average overall rating of 86%, based on 187 reviews. This digital camera has received 18 awards including a "Recommended" award from Trusted Reviews plus three other sites and a "Gold" award from What Digital Camera plus one other site.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer digital cameras with better features are available. However this Panasonic digital camera has good reviews so it may still be worth considering.
The Lumix DMC-TZ30 has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Big optical zoom
1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels video resolution
R zoom camera tz30 - featuring 20x optical zoom, 50p full HD video recording and built-in GPS func
Long camera shutter speed
Tiny digital zoom

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each digital camera by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the digital camera is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec digital cameras come to market, the older digital cameras will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.

What is This Digital Camera Best Used For?

Having compared it with other relevant digital cameras, we have concluded that it is very good for everyday photography. It is also very good for landscape photography.
