On the recommendation of Kenson over at CNTRL.be and after reading some reviews, I picked myself up the new Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 and did a few test shots yesterday. First tests really impressed me.
It has a 25mm super wide Leica lens. Never seen such wideangle shots before short of using a fisheye.
It has some really nice settings for playing around with. Still trying to figure them out..
Ok, this is on full zoom out. The quality of the pictures is the closest to film I have seen yet in a point and shoot digi.
Standing at the same spot, i then zoomed into a place on the mountain you see in the far distance above. 12x zoom! Ridiculous.
The macro is pretty sweet too
So far I am blown away with this camera, it is so much better than any small digital camera I have used before.
Cant wait to start using it properly. Especially the HD Video it has on it too.
