Product Information The Panasonic DMC-TZ5EB packs a remarkable 10x optical zoom and a 28mm wide-angle Leica lens into a stylish, compact body.
The 28mm lens (equivalent to 28-280mm on a 35mm film camera) allows you to easily capture a large group of people, or expansive architectural structures and landscapes with dynamic width and rich perspective. This particularly handy in situations where you cannot step back or move away from a subject ¨C ideal for shooting group portraits in a small room.
You¡¯ll be able to blow up your best shots to poster size thanks to a 9.1 megapixel resolution and you can frame and playback your stills with ease using the bright 3 inch LCD screen. The zoom ratio can also extended up to 15x in 3 megapixel resolution mode with little deterioration using the Extra Optical Zoom.
Panasonic¡¯s advanced Venus Engine III image processing engine is able to record at high sensitivity settings, and it will reduce picture noise at different stages throughout image processing. The Optical Image Stabiliser (OIS) will minimize any jitter from shaky hands, preventing blurry photos and ensuring your images are captured with excellent clarity and sharpness.
The DMC-TZ5EB-K also records stunning full-size movies in wide-aspect 1280x720 at 30fps, enabling you to view your recordings on an HD Ready widescreen television

Good camera but there is a better deal at Amazon. £178 delivered plus a free Lowpro case (normally £8.99). Plus you can get a 8Gb Transcend Class 6 card with a lifetime warranty for about an extra £12.40.

Hope this helps someone

No problem. Have some rep. It's the thought that counts

Perhaps the Amazon deal should be posted as a separate thread?

The 8GB SD for £12 odd sounds an amazing deal!

I have a TZ5 and I've been very happy with it. For examples of how good the movie capability is on it with the 10 Times zoom take a look at the Stevie Wonder and George Michael clips from ]my youtube page. The other clips were recorded on my older Canon Ixus (a camera I was very happy with except for limitation of the zoom)

The actual video quality is better than what appears on youtube but you'll see what the lens allows you to do when the clips zoom out to reveal the "normal" view. It also does a good job of coping with the high volume output at gigs and not just distorting completely.
