I love photography and digital cameras. So when it comes to the Lumix DMC TZ1 digital camera I would recommend it to anyone looking for professional quality without spending an outrageous amount of money.
This camera is a 5 mega pixel, 10x optical zoom digital. It has a 2.5 inch LCD viewing screen which makes it great to see if your picture came out with the detail you want. There are many different tools you can select on screen to maximize your picture quality, but you do need a basic knowledge of light and digital workings to understand how to use them. The manual helps, but can still be confusing.
The selection dial has many preset options to choose from. Everything from extremely close up shots to capturing the stars at night. I rarely need to manually change any settings to get the picture I want. This makes it very easy for anyone to use.
My brother bought this same camera without even knowing I had just bought it. Once we said we loved it, my mom went out and bought the same one! We all still love our camera and take professional quality pictures everywhere we go.
