Optisch ist die Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ18 die kleine Schwester der DMC-TZ22. Mit gleichem Objektiv ausgestattet, verzichtet sie aber auf Touchscreen, GPS und 3D-Modus. Trotzdem ist die kleine Super-Zoomkamera eine nähere Betrachtung...

Remplaçant du TZ8, le TZ18 respecte les caractéristiques de la gamme de Panasonic : compact, grand angle et gros zoom. Petit frère du TZ20 (le haut de gamme), le TZ18 propose un bon compromis entre performances et...
