Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 - Test Shots - Exposure Evaluation

Our Score:


This page consists of resized images so that you can evaluate the overall exposure.

Full-sized versions of some of the following images can be downloaded in a new window by clicking on the sample shots as indicated. However be aware that the average file size is around 3MB, so those on very slow connections will experience some delay.


The 28mm-equivalent wide-angle setting is a real bonus not found on many compact cameras.


Taken from the same position as the above shot, this demonstrates the power of the telephoto end of the TZ2's 10x zoom lens, equivalent to 280mm.


The TZ2 has a 5cm macro range.


It's almost spring again, and the flowers are out. Lovely colour rendition, but a pity about that over-exposed wall in the top corner though.

I bought this camera on a runout deal early in 2008 via the net for only 䀏.99. A real bargain. I had earlier taken a serious look at a TZ3 and like its intuitive menu. It felt good to handle and reassuringly solid but was considerably more expensive. having used the TZ2 thoughout 2008 I have found it to be exceptional. It takes blindly good macro shots and is equally impressive are the telephoto end. I took a great one of Big Ben clockface from ground level about 200 feet away using the full 280mm. The photo fills an A4 sheet of photo paper and the detail is absolutely stunning. A very underated camera that I'm so glad I bought. It replaces a much loved Fuji Finepix F700 that for me, after 4 years good service did not have a good enough range being only 3X optical. I briefly flirted with a Finepix S6500fd but couldn't get on with it - to bulky slow to focus and those awful AA rechargeable batteries, what a faff. Give me compact and a Li-ino battery everytime.
