20x Pocket Zoom Comparison – Panasonic ZS19 vs. Sony HX20 vs. Canon SX260
“In the end I decided to go with the PANASONIC. While it only was the best in handling, to me that was a significant portion of the photographic experience. It is not DSLR fast (instantaneous), but it is a zippy camera for a superzoom, is light in weight and has a good grip which makes it easier to hold.” – By Artemaria

Great pics and video – MAC user notes
“I first used the camera to take pics and video of my kids at an indoor TKD event, and several parents asked what kind of camera I was using because the photos were coming out so good! The indoor lighting varied from strong sunset coming in through the windows, to overhead fluorescent bulbs later in the evening, but I still was able to get great pics with and without the awesome 20x optical zoom” – By Lisa

Great Camera
“I just got this camera yesterday, for my 13th birthday. It’s so nice and small! Not too small, though, just the perfect size, for me anyway. Also very shiny! But this camera is amazing. It captures details we can’t even see. Just beautiful photos. And I love the different settings, my favorite is the creative mode, for portraits and animal photos.” – By Kara

Awesome Macro
“I bought this yesterday to replace my beloved Lumix DMC-TZ4 after I dropped her. So far, so great. I’m getting popping close ups of bees and butterflies. The touch screen is going to take some getting used to for an oldschooler. I’ve snapped several pics from sloppy thumb placement. I like the separate instant video mode button. It’s much faster than having to manipulate the mode dial.” – By Pam Roberts

Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS19 Digital Camera
“I purchased this to replace the prior model DMC-ZS10. The camera function was almost identical, but the focusing appeared faster and better. Also the extended ZOOM allowed better focused closeups.” – By Theodor Paulat
