11 Reasons Against

A Bit Expensive

A number of people who reviewed the product reckoned that it was not cheap. A. Etherington wrote in their Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 review on Amazon “Comparing pictures with other people who had much more expensive (normally Canon) SLR cameras, there was no discernible difference in the quality of the photos”. In November this year Abe Loke mentioned “Handheld? Out of the question!) At a recent visit to a subterranean church, my (much more expensive!) Nikon was totally useless (no tripod).”. Bh said last year “They then point you towards more expensive cameras” in their review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70.

A number of Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 owners who purchased the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 thought it was not good value for money. Lothar wrote in their Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 review “This isn't really a criticism, is that given the price tag, I can't help”. Last year Starrykozel wrote “It can be used as a shoot and click (bit pricey for that though)” in their review of this digital camera.

One customer who purchased it considered that it was not a bargain for the price. Expert review site Techguide.com.au said in their Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ70 review in November last year “Not cheap and nasty” but even so they still rated this digital camera 4 stars.
