hot!!
#2
Is there still a 15 minutes limit on video recordings on this model like the TZ7 ?
#3
Paid more than this a few months ago for my TZ7.
A good buy. Hot
#4
bought one a month back and got the cashback within a week, superb camera too
#5
Does anyone know if this can be done online because the terms of the cashback deal suggests instore only?
#6
Amazon have just increased their price on the tz7 from a low of £181 to £238 this morning. Will I ever understand their pricing policies - but makes this even hotter from me.

Just read the terms and conditions from the pannasonic site and it says:

"1. You will qualify for cashback provided you see an in-store demonstration of a Panasonic Lumix TZ10 or TZ8 Digital Camera and you purchase a qualifying product in store from the same dealer during the promotional period. " - so you can have a demo and then order via quidco and collect instore I would guess?

You must receive a form instore with the T&C's attached, becasue the online T&C's say:

"4. To qualify for your cashback, please clearly complete your details above and include a COPY of your full purchase receipt (not deposit receipt) and a COPY of the barcode from the carton along with your claim, by 30th September 2010" - there is no online form above to complete (unless I'm missing something).

I "think" I want one. Add that to the ipad and a holiday!

Seems like a hot deal if it can be pulled off but I fear that you might have to pay instore price.

I'd agree - a tad concerned.

My theory is to:

Order one via quidco to get the price (have done already and it works)
Go and get the demo - get the form!
Return later with quidco order and buy

Duck out at any time if it's not going my way :-)

Word of warning if your thinking of upgrading from the TZ7.....

The only major differences between the TZ7 and TZ10 are as follows

10mp vs 12mp (you can't tell the difference)
GPS built in (Takes 300 photos without gps enabled or 90 photo's with it enabled)
TZ10 is 10% lighter but feels cheaper build quality

I have owed a TZ7 for about 18 months and after getting it stollen out of my car I decided I should upgrade, so I bought the TZ10 and after about two weeks I sent it back and got another TZ7... Much better camera in my opinion. I really like the build and feel of the TZ7.

Also the TZ10 automatically smooths over any noise which is hardly visable anyway which loses a lot of detail.

You call but if your buying to upgrade you might want to think again

Also I bought my TZ7 for £149 from Vennal Cameras (paid over the phone and they delivered) you can call them on 01292 610370.
#11
Won't Comet match their online price if you take a print out of it to the store?
#12
In Quidco there is a 5% off voucher code if you spend more than £199.
#13
Beware about quoting Quidco at the moment. I have just had an email from them saying the partner that gets the money from the manufacturer etc.and they then pay you has gone bust resulting in loads of claims beging cancelled.. Panasonic do not appear to be on the list from what I can see but the list is preitty extensive. Iooks like I am going to have £170+ in outstanding claims cancelled making over £200 lost this year. INot their fault I suppose but 've givne up on Quidco.

It's back to £251.30.

Why not buy the Sony HX5V, (1080i at 50fps video, not just 720p at 25fps like the Panny) withdrawn from Comet's website since the end of the World Cup, but available in store, discontinued price, from £279.99 to £251.99 with a free Sony branded pouch. Do pay £3 more and get the bigger pouch though!
#15
The Sony does sweep panorama, has a CMOS sensor, 10fps burst photo, withheld twilight.

The Panny has better sound recording and more vivid cold colour, a higher res. LCD.
#16
Cracking camera, worth every penny. Add a genuine Lumix case for under £8 delivered here...

The fact that it's £190 to £230 everywhere else makes me very wary of a place you can only order from via phone :|

That's because it's Comet your meant to be looking for and not Panasonic.

Seems a legitimate company, there is plenty of references to them on the web.

You do not have to pay instore price. I reserved mine online & picked it up yesterday from comet for £238.74, so all i have to do now is claim my £30 back from panasonic. Happy days!

I did the same earlier this month, odered online through Quidco, got 5% off comet + 3% off quidco £234.97 and posted the deal on here on another thread. Was surprised at the time that it didn't get voted hotter as under £240 was already a bargain even before the Panasonic cashback claim. Just got to ge the form now to claim the cashback.

I think that the most important difference is the manual controls of the TZ10

I got the TZ9 from Currys which is the TZ10 without the GPS. Awesome camera verry impressed.

Would recomend to everyone.

Great Find, Just what we wanted, placed an order online at comet to collect today - HOT from me

The TZ8 is also very good however worth pointing out for others reading this thread that there are a quite few differences between the TZ8 and TZ10 and not just the GPS...

The TZ8 HD videos record in Quicktime motion jpeg, but the tz10 offers both motion jpeg and AVCHD Lite. This means the TZ8 can only film to a maximum file size of 2GB per video, approx 8 mins per clip.

There is no HDMI port on the TZ8.

The screen on the TZ10 is very slightly bigger - 2.7" on the TZ8 and 3.0" on the TZ10.

The TZ10 also has a stereo mic on the top.

Does the TZ10 lose the super flimsy LCD screen of the TZ7?

Really stuck between tz7 and tz10, anymore advice, as the TZ10 is cheaper at the minute.

Get the TZ10 while it's such a good price! If it was over £250 i'd say the TZ7 would still be worth considering as it's a good buy for under £200. However after weighing up the pros and cons I would recommend the TZ10 at the deal price from Comet with Quidco and Panasonic cashback. Newer technology, longer battery life, tougher screen, updated software, gps etc etc. Go for it!

Steve
#31
Can't decide between this and the TZ7 too. Will be using it mainly for HD video (gigs, etc), at the moment the TZ7 is cheapest in amazon for £188, would I notice much of a difference with this one? Also, how does the cashback work, is the form just in the box with the camera, or do you have to ask for it from comet or panasonic? And, for spare batteries, would this work for both models with latest firmware (as I'm aware of panasonic's lock to prevent 3rd party batteries from working...) http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=777_3&products_id=106838

Sorry for so many questions, and thanks in advance to anyone that can help!

Found this if anyone was interested: http://www.digitalversus.com/page-panasonic-tz7-vs-panasonic-tz10-p974_8828_93.html

Basically they say there isn't that much difference in picture and video quality between the two. TZ10 obviously has a higher pixel count, GPS (but doesn't seem that useful as reviews say you can only take around 80-100 photos in the mode, and it can take a few minutes for the camera to find a signal) and a few extra manual settings. But apparently it takes just a bit longer to open and to process photos, can't find any information of a better battery life, build quality, etc.
#33
Just got mine, although stock was hard to track down! Ordered online via quidco, reserved and collected to fulfill the T&C's. Leaflets are in store. The very helpful checkout girl told me she had bought the camera and claimed the money and even gave me an extra receipt to send off.

The TZ10 has manual settings which the TZ7 doesnt have. That appears to be an issue with settings like macro, judging by the "demo" I gave myself in store whilst picking up a leaflet. Overall this is a better camera (for me) but it depends on your needs.

Anyone wanting this (but unsure about the deal at Comet) would be better to go to this deal at Camerabox where a five year warranty is included at £234.99 (bargain) but without the potential for cashback via quidco and panasonic.

GSP signal is instant... even when the TZ10 is switched off the GPS is on. Also, i've taken over 200 photos and a lot of testing and learning and only only dropped 1 bar of battery juice. So that review is a bit false in my opinion!

Just reserved at my nearest in stock store. Got it to replace my TZ5, which was a great camera, but hopefully this one is better :-)

Just dealt with Panasonic on their free 32GB SDHC card with selected camcorders, got the SD60... gotta say that a lady called Hannah at HQ was amazing and very very helpful - top marks for customer service ;-)
#37
Got mine yesterday, thought the customer service was a bit naff to be honest. The dude at the til was trying to sell me off extended cover, extra SD cards, camera cases when all I came for was to collect a reserved item! Also, he didn't mention any sort of cashback with the camera, but there was a stack of the leaflets next to the on display camera, so it was easy enough just to grab one on your way in.

About the camera; fantastic video and pictures in low light (from my very short few minutes of testing), but I have noticed that the controls on the top of the camera (on/off switch, shutter, mode dial) felt slightly loose/wobbly. Not sure if this is because of a duff model or it's designed that way. Doesn't actually affect the function of the camera, but it's a lot of money to invest in something that might be not quite right; anyone else notice the same thing or do I have a faulty model?

Just checked mine yos and all seems fine. Nothing out of the ordinary tbh.

They are slightly wobbly, that's totally normal.

Cheers for the replies; was in half a mind to open up the camera to search for any loose screws, etc. Probably not the best idea if it's apparent on other units, I was maybe being a bit too nit-picky. It really is a decent camera and should be great for getting a few clips from concerts (as far as I'm aware it has the best internal mic for a camera in it's price range)
