No rating available.

Our rating of the Panasonic DC TZ96

Panasonic'c TZ96 (US: ZS80, UK: TZ95) is a portable superzoom with a 30x lens and a compact sensor with a resolution of 20 megapixel. Typical for Panasonic, the camera has a very comprehensive feature set: Wifi, five axis stabilizer, 4K video, even a (smallish) electronic viewfinder is built-in. Continuous drive stands at five photos per second with AF-C, a very good value. The camera supports creating time-lapses and has a dedicated panoramic mode.

For a larger sensor (1") and a shorter zoom (10x) see the Panasonic TZ101 (US: ZS100, UK: TZ100).
