Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ50 Reviews

Wifi-Planet reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ50 and writes;
“While the picture-taking features are plentiful and easy to access, for the money, we suspect that until Panasonic improves its Wi-Fi feature..Nikon COOLPIX 52c, might be a better choice for consumers looking to incorporate Wi-Fi into their cameras. “

LaptopMag reviews the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ50 and writes;
“Generally, the TZ50S’ image quality was very good. Images were clean, with decent sharpness, good color, and nice contrast. However, highlights in brightly lit scenes lost detail, and images shot at ISO 400 or higher exhibited moderate noise”
