My Panasonic Lumix ZS15 Review
Look and feel
The size of Panasonic Lumix ZS15 is 4.1 x 1.3 x 2.3 inches and the weight of this camera is only 6.6 ounces, These show ZS15 is really a compact camera. I find there is no big difference between ZS15 and ZS20 on appearance, expect the slight top panel bulge.
The 3.0 inch LCD screen has 460k dots resolution. It’s not high but sharp enough. The menu is easy to use because of built in help which is a good feature for entry level.
How about the Performance
As a point and shoot camera, The Panasonic Lumix ZS15 has a excellent image quality with the 16 MP BSI-CMOS Sensor, But As the Official Manuals this sensor is skilled in high sensitivity, I found the the image quality is great when the sensitivity below 400, and if it pasted this sensitivity, The color noise would appear.
The Panasonic Lumix ZS15 can enable Auto focus when you are shooting video, This a good ideas and don’t ignore the 1080P mode is clear than the 720P in other cameras.
The battery life of this camera is about 260 shots, It maybe a little lower, But if you research on the web, It is hard to find a camera can have over 250 shots at this price.
Verdict and Price
“The Panasonic Lumix TZ25 is a good update to last years model, the TZ18, with a 12 megapixel sensor, it produces lower noise, and has good image quality for a compact camera. Focus speed is excellent as is continuous shooting and the camera has a number of options for fast continuous shooting. Focus is quick even when using the full 16x optical zoom which makes this camera all the more appealing. On top of this the camera has panoramic sweep built in and would make a good choice for someone looking to explore the manual controls this camera offers.” – ephotozine
In summary, If you want to buy a good super zoom camera which is compact, I think the Panasonic Lumix ZS15 would on the top of your list.
