The shutter speed was nothing extraordinary on this camera.
Low light pictures are quite poor and could use some work.
Design hasn't changed from previous TZ shooters; a bit heavy.
AVCHD lit format needs specific software
Image quality, especially at higher ISOs, is not as good as its predecessor, Heavy noise reduction smudges fine details, even at low ISOs, and especially at ISO 400 and above, Highlight clipping is fairly common, Redeye a problem, though I'm not sure.
Flash may be too close to grip for some hands, Zooming is too jerky for precise composition, Sprawling Menu system, Highlights often blown, Yellows are noticeably undersaturated and have a green or orange tint, more noticeable when printed, Some corner...
No altitude or compass details from GPS, Landmark database not upgradeable, Pressing shutter won't exit playback. Need to switch.
