Panasonic Lumix TZ55 Digital Camera £99.99 @ Argos

Found 29th Aug 2015
Our camera got sand in and we needed a new one to replace our Lumix TZ25. We really liked the Lumix so wanted another. Looked around on here for a deal and searched the net. There was a deal for a refurb TZ55 off ebay at £90 (expired now) but I thought for a tenner more I could get a new one. Also if you add something cheap to get the purchase over £100 you get a £10 voucher.
There are a couple of special offers on memory cards too but I didn't need any. Hope it helps someone.

I really want a TZ70 or even a TZ60, but for this price, the TZ55 is great!

And if you dont have the money buy a TZ7 or TZ8 or TZ10 (TZ10 has gps) from ebay and you will not be disappointed.

Does anyone know if there's a suitable case for this?

they don't change much in dimensions, so i'd imagine earlier model cases would fit too.

If the tz57 floats your boat, it can now be had for £111 (£151 at Amazon, with £40 Panasonic cashback), with one of those godawful selfie sticks as a free gift.

(2nd one down: double cash back and gifts)

The issue with all Lumixs is exactly what the OP mentioned - ingress of sand. As the lens extends on switch-on they create a vacuum which pulls dust/ sand into the camera. It's possible to fix them, but you need to be ready for some extremely fiddly work.
Other makes don't seem to be as affected by this.

TZ57 is the updated version of the TZ55.

Have a lookie here panasonic superzoom cameras

I managed to remove a speck of dust from the lens of my lummox by extendung the lens fully, putting the nozzle of a cylinder vacuum cleaner over the lens and using full suction. This tip was found online and has worked for at least some ku mix owners. Hot for this deal.

Pesky spell check - lumix was word intended above.

got this from currys a few weeks back for this price apparently it has been in some stores for something like 59.97 or something similar mostly ex-display at that price I would expect

I just tried Bespoke's Beat My Price and they have come back with £90.37. Together with the 14%+ TCB, it makes it a decent price.

I bought the official Panasonic case but it's useless. I keep my TZ30 in one of these:

TZ30 is similar in size to the TZ55 . It's a well made case and well padded with room for spare card and battery.

I still have a TZ7 that is now used by my son. It is a very good camera with lovely build quality. It gives better results than my much newer and upgraded TZ20.

Can you still get TCB for Bespoke Beat my Price? I have tried several times over the last week and the retailer is no longer recognised i.e. cashback no longer available with this retailer.

The bespoke offers have gone now, the TCB / Quidco cashback must've cost them a fortune.

Voted hot might buy for myself.

Would this be similar quality to the cheapest bridge camera in their range?

that was not the question.

Have just recently sent my TZ60 back for a refund due to the transfers rubbing off after only a couple of months. Not something i expected to happen on a £240 camera. Not sure if this will be the same, but something to be aware of. Now looking at entry level DSLRs instead as wasn't that impressed with it anyway really.

Surprisingly mediocre camera for a Panny (read reviews).

Prefer the output from my 6 year old TZ-10 tbh.
