Performance

Great camera for still and video. Sure, anyone can spend more money on a larger camera, larger sensor. But, this model fits both perfectly for everyday moments. I save my more expensive cameras for higher quality work. ***Newer models doesn't mean better picture quality. Just check other review sites for comments to see what I mean.

Why this Model?

by Stan on 5/1/2012

I evaluated several different Lumix models before choosing the ZS-15. My decision was based on other reviewrs, features, and significantly- quality of picture and lag time between shots. This is my first Lumix and therefore I have a few new systems to learn because each manufacturer does things a little differently. I now have the camera two weeks and have gone through about 25% of ther LARGE manual. It's a great camera. Read More
