Our readers are already familiar with one of the representatives of the Panasonic TZ compact series. Some time ago, we published a test of the previous model – Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7. This time we got a newer camera – Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10 – for our test. Today it is the top model in the Lumix compact line. There are not so many differences from its predecessor camera: a new 12-megapixel matrix, an updated Power OIS stabilization system, support for the most modern SDXC memory cards. But the main difference is the built-in GPS module, which allows you to specify the coordinates of the point where it was taken in the image properties. The Lumix DMC-TZ10 was the first Panasonic camera to feature this feature. GPS receivers in cameras are becoming more and more common. Maybe soon such functionality will go into the “basic” configuration of all cameras? Well, wait and see … In the meantime, back to the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10 test.
Key features of the camera:
- 12-megapixel CCD matrix format 1 / 2.33;
- 12x optical zoom (25-300 mm equiv.);
- built-in GPS module;
- 3-inch display with a resolution of 460000 points;
- Video recording in AVCHD Lite or Motion JPEG format with a resolution of up to 1280×720.
