The Mouse from Glasgow, United Kingdom

Can you fault the tz20? Thinking about one for Mrs M.

20 May 2011 11:41am

@The Mouse: Fault it-no. But a couple of comments. The camera has a stunning wide range, right from super wide to supper long. The long end is more of less unusable simply because of camera shake. Even though the 20 has great anti-shake on it, nothing is going to keep a point and shoot steady at over 300 mm equivalent, so it works but don't get into believing you will get much at the long extreme. Second, I only got the 20 cos I lost the 10. It's almost just as good, and costs 2/3 rds of the price!

john4jack from Corvallis, Oregon, United States

superb macro
