The TS7 is about as rugged as the rest and outdives them to 102 ft/30m.
Panasonic's successor to the ZS100 "travel zoom" compact brings the lens to 24-360mm, but sacrifices speed.
With a long zoom and loads of physical controls, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ25 is keenly priced and produced consistently sharp, accurate and vibrant results. A great choice for less savvy photographers, the easy access to aperture and shutter priority modes offers plenty of incentive to step away from just auto shooting.
If it wasn't for the clunky mode dial and lack of manual controls, we would have no qualms about recommending the TZ7 to anyone looking for a compact camera with a 12x optical zoom and HD video recording.
Panasonic's FZ150 is king of the superzooms, sporting a long lens matched up with excellent image and video quality.
Another winner from Panasonic. With its wide angle lens, 4x optical zoom and truly accessible design, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS20 joins a line-up that raises the bar for what we can expect from the compact digital camera
The GF1 is the most complete Micro Four Thirds camera yet. If you're looking for the ideal entry-point into the format, the GF1 could be it.
There's a lot to like about the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX33, with it's succinct design, MegaOIS function and efficient wide angle lens. A lack of manual control and unspectacular image quality barely detract from the feature-packed fun of this sturdy, sylish compact
Though it leaves out one fun little shooting mode, the Panasonic DMC-TZ3 improves upon its predecessor in nearly every way
Panasonic's second compact interchangeable lens camera won't disappoint new users with its sleek footprint and very good image quality.
Like all tough and waterproof cameras the FT3 has its downsides, though it's one of the best models you can buy.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-3D1 offers true innovation that makes 3D photography and video shooting easy and intuitive. It's expensive, but you're paying for a lot of duplicated technology under the hood here. It looks good, it's fun to use, and it put in a good test performance overall.
While the FT20 is nothing to write home about, it's a perfectly serviceable tough camera that can easily slide into a pocket.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT1 is very well specified for a ruggedised camera, which makes it a great all-round snapper and camcorder too. It can be awkward to use, though, and, if outright toughness is more important to you than versatility, it might not go far enough
The G3 is a great addition to the already-strong range of Panasonic interchangeable lens cameras, with a few notable omissions holding it back from being top notch.
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10 is a great camera, but its new 'intelligent' image processing isn't especially convincing, and the 'intelligent zoom' and 'extra optical zoom' are an insult to the intelligence. The GPS and manual exposure modes are important steps forward, but, while the TZ10 is better than the Lumix DMC-TZ7, it looks like the rate of progress is slowing down
As long as you avoid high ISO levels and don't expect a true touchscreen experience, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP3 is a decent compact camera.
Panasonic adds a touchscreen and video recording to its latest interchangeable lens camera, which mostly comes up trumps.
