27 Reasons For

Panasonic Digital Cameras Have Good Reviews

On average Panasonic compact cameras have good reviews compared to other brands as do all digital cameras manufactured by Panasonic.

Good Size

One person who bought the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ55 reckoned that it was compact. Pocket-Lint.com wrote on Pocket Lint two years ago “It seems to be selfie season, as Panasonic steps on board the flip-up screen compact camera express with the Lumix TZ55” in their review of this digital camera.

Good Screen / Viewfinder

One Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ55 owner wrote in their reviews that it had a good screen.

Supports Wi-Fi

The Panasonic DMC-TZ55 supports wi-Fi. Most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that are a similar age to the DMC-TZ55 do not support wi-Fi.

We compared all the other cameras which support wi-Fi to this camera and we think the Sony DSC-WX350[plb_2163795_price], the Samsung WB350F[plb_2134241_price], and the Nikon Coolpix S5300[plb_2272796_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

There are a number of other cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory currently available which you might want to consider including cheaper digital cameras such as the SZ-14[pl_1686232_price], or the SZ-14[pl_1686232_price] both from Olympus.

Digital cameras with a better memory card type that might also be worth considering include the Canon 105[plb_377573_price] (HC MMC+|MMC|MMC+|SD|SDHC|SDXC) which also has a higher rating.
