This means several Panasonic DMC-TZ100 Camera. For one, the ZS can capture roughly four times the total light at every focal length, if you keep the aperture open and use the same shutter speed.

Panasonic Lumix ZS/TZ review: the premium compact with an unfeasibly large sensor T3

Since the sensor is gathering more light, you get a better signal-to-noise ratio, which in turn leads to higher image quality. This will be especially noticeable in low light, when the ISO needs to go up. The lenses used on larger sensors tend to Panasonic DMC-TZ100 Camera more control over depth-of-field, allowing you for Panasonic DMC-TZ100 Camera backgrounds in portraits. The one area in which the ZS60 bests the ZS is in terms of zoom, as you can see by how much further the yellow line extends. Understanding the math behind all of this is a bit confusing, but the end result is the same: Compared to its peers Using what we've learned from above, let's take a look at how the ZS fits among its 1" sensor peers: In this group, which includes cameras from Sony, Canon and Panasonic, you'll notice that the benefit of shorter, faster lenses: Naturally this is accompanied by a larger screen on the back of the camera, and in this instance it's a 3-inch 1,dot unit that is touch-sensitive.

Helpfully there's an eye sensor to detect when the camera is held to the eye to switch off the main screen and activate the EVF. This sits well with Panasonic DMC-TZ100 Camera aperture priority, shutter priority and manual exposure modes that accompany the automated shooting options.


It should therefore be possible to freeze very fast movement and use the widest aperture in bright light. Panasonic DMC-TZ100 Camera, although Wi-Fi connectivity is present, NFC technology is not — Panasonic says that this hasn't proved as widely used as expected. Even in poor lighting and when fully zoomed in it reacts reasonably swiftly, the AF assist light helping to illuminate and focus on relatively close subjects. Contrast detect AF systems also find it difficult to know when the optimum focus point is reached, so they often go past the best focus position before returning to it. Depth from defocus profiles the Panasonic DMC-TZ100 Camera characteristics of the lens in order to help overcome these problems, resulting in faster more confident focussing. What I did notice was that there were fewer instances of hunting in poor light conditions and when fully zoomed in.

Shooting moving subjects with the focus mode set Panasonic DMC-TZ100 Camera continuous is a bit more of a hit and miss affair though. Once the light starts to fade, however, it becomes much less reliable.

And you can expect the hit rate to fall pretty dramatically with faster moving and less predictable subjects like animals or football players. Low 2fps with Live ViewMedium 6fps with Live ViewHigh 10fps without Live View and Super High 5 50fps but only for a three second burst of frames and at a reduced resolution of 10 Megapixels using the electronic shutter. This corresponds to a speed of 9. Set to RAW, I captured 14 frames in 1. Mostly I used the Burst mode, and above you can see an example selected from about a second of burst shooting which gave me a choice of around 30 frames. Post focus mode is selected from the Rec menu and is also assinged by default to the Fn2 button.

You can choose one of four 8M aspect ratios — Panasonic DMC-TZ100 Camera It then takes a short while to process the results before displaying a composite on screen.

You can simply tap the screen to select the focus point. Panasonic DMC-TZ100 Camera second option is to zoom in to an area you want in focus and drag a slider at the bottom of the screen which cycles through all of the bracketed frames.

The Post focus clips are saved as. Diffraction compensation appears on the Rec menu and has two settings, Off and Auto. Diffraction is an issue that affects lenses at very small apertures whereby the edge of the Panasonic DMC-TZ100 Camera interferes with light passing through it adversely affecting sharpness or, to put it another way, causing a slight blurring.

Panasonic DMC-TZ100 Camera In both cases I set the the smallest aperture available — f8 — in Aperture priority mode. The percent crops below are taken from the area marked in red above. The off crop is on the left and the crop on the right is with Diffraction compensation set to Auto.

The one below right with diffraction compensation enabled looks as if a little extra sharpening has been applied, but the effect is subtle. You can also set the app to make a GPS log for subsequent syncing and tagging, create a snap movie, or photo collage. You can tap anywhere on the live image to set the AF area or directly take the Panasonic DMC-TZ100 Camera.
