how does this compare to the TZ7

It depends what you are after. I have a TZ7 and bought my daughter a FS11.

The FS11 is noticibly smaller and easily fits in your pocket.The TZ7 has more options and gives more creative potential.

If you just want a point-and-shoot and aren't bothered about the 12x zoom then the resulting pictures are very similar. Both are great cameras (especially at this price oO)

Probably not brilliant, but about average for a £100 to £150 compact camera.

No Compact camera is going to be a great low light performer, they just don't have big enough sensors. If this is what you need, you will have to spend £300+ on a DSLR, or SLR-class camera.

Some of the coloures ones have 20% off too!! Just got my pink one for £102!!

is this better than the FS9

is this better than the FS9


I would expect the FS9 to be better because it has a more sensible number of megapixels. Reading the reviews the cheaper Lumix cameras were best when they had 10 megapixels and certainly the ones I've seen have been good. The 12 megapixel weren't quite as good but still very decent. I think 14 megapixels is pushing things a bit far with these small sensors. While I wouldn't even consider going for a 14 megapixel camera I imagine that for point and shoot in decent light the differences aren't going to be noticeable to normal people (as opposed to camera reviewers).

I'd spend a couple of quid more on the FS10 (which might be the same as the FS9.

Have to agree here regarding really bad low light performance unless with flash. I have an FX35 (10MP, Leica lens) brought for £125 and it's a fantastic camera during the day but not anywhere near my entry level Sony A300 which cost me £350 as a kit. Moving up to an A580 to be delivered tomorrow.

Previously had a Fuji S8000 (which is highly rated unlike the S8100) for it's price, slightly below the FZ18 at the time. Took a picture of the merry go round at Brighton at dusk. That was enough convincing to move to a dSLR.

One of the reviews on Amazon says it is mediocre in low light.

I continue to find it amazing that these compacts continue to increase the megapixel count. They would be far better spending their development budget on more useful areas.

Last sentence of the review of the Nikon s8000 on Photographyblog:

'The S8000 represents a decent first stab at what is quickly becoming a hotly contested camera category, but market-leaders Panasonic don't need to worry too much just yet...'

http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/nikon_coolpix_s8000_review/

To be fair, they are really talking about in comparison to the Panasonic TZ7/TZ8, which are more in the s8000's price bracket. The FS11, is not that more than half the price of the others and you can't really expect it to be quite on a par.

Nikon has a 10x optical zoom vs 5x on the Fs11 and one or two additional features, but image quality in reasonable light is probably pretty similar.

Ah, yes but all the marketing departments have persuaded all the sheep that more megapixels are better!

Hmmm....depends on what is most important to you. The Panasonic has the advantage of HD video and a 'wider' lens (28mm equivalent vs 35mm equivalent on the Canon, which does make quite a difference, in my experience, for group shots, scenic photography and all sorts of things) but the Canon is over £35 cheaper, delivered (using free delivery code EFD). The Panasonic may be 14MP vs 10MP on the Canon, but I suspect the final image quality (especially in low light) may be very marginally superior on the Canon.

Panasonic may also be a tiny bit faster in use, as it uses Panasonic's latest 'Venus IV' processing engine, as opposed to Canon's slightly older 'Digic III'.

If your only concern is picture quality, then save your money and go for the Canon, but if the extra features are more important, then go for the Panasonic.

Someone on the Amazon comments page says it uses proprietary id-security batteries. Which is rather off putting, to me at least.

Generic batteries now widely available for these 'software protected' cameras. Try 7 day shop.
