Digital Camera Review has reviewed the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 where they write - 'Bottom line, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 is a joy to use, but with a few downsides. It's an easy to use camera and has a nice 10x optical zoom with image stabilization, especially given its size. A nice set of scene modes provides plenty of options for the casual shooter. The camera's focus speed, cycle time, and quick click to capture speed are among the best around. On the downside, Panasonic continues to fight with noise in their images with some pretty heavy in-camera noise reduction that is evident in higher ISO images. If you're looking for a more compact ultra zoom digital camera (more compact that the Canon Powershot S3 IS or Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7), then the TZ1 is a good option. Its direct competitor, the Kodak Easyshare V610, does take the cake in the size department, but doesn't have image stabilization. You will be pleased with its speed of operation and image stabilization. Also, you will be pleased with your prints, especially if you stick to 4x6 inch print.'
