Good User Reviews

On average, Lumix DMC-TZ55 owners rated this digital camera 83%.

Panasonic Digital Cameras Have Good Reviews

Panasonic compact camera digital cameras have good reviews on average and across all cameras Panasonic is one of the superior manufacturers.

Good Size

One Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ55 reviewer mentioned in their reviews that the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ55 was compact. Two years ago Pocket-Lint.com said on Pocket Lint “It seems to be selfie season, as Panasonic steps on board the flip-up screen compact camera express with the Lumix TZ55”.

If the memory card type of this camera is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the Olympus SZ-14[plb_1686232_price] (SD|SDHC|SDXC and cheaper); or the DSC-H70[pl_580917_price] (MS Duo|MS PRO Duo|MS Pro-HG|SD|SDHC|SDXC and higher rated), or the DSC-WX200[pl_1609944_price] (MicroSD (TransFlash and higher rated)|MicroSDHC|MicroSDXC|MS Duo|MS Micro (M2 and higher rated)|MS PRO Duo|MS PRO Duo HS|MS Pro-HG Duo|MS XC-HG Duo|SD|SDHC|SDXC and higher rated) both from Sony.
