HI ! I am new here. Ive wondering over internet in search for information regarding Panasonic tz7 , and after 2 weeks I found right place
Im very interestin in this camera , however , I have few doubts..
first..Im from Europe , Croatia to be exact . Here , as in all Europe , we have PAL tv-standard . I am thinking of buying this camera over ebay or b&h foto video. all items I see are not panasonic TZ7 but ZS3. I read this whole topic , as you all said , there are two(or one) major difference ; ZS3 has unlimited video time , and , more important ;: american version (zs3) is producing NTSC clips , which might not be playable on TVs in PAL standard ,. Am I right? Maybe difference in number of FPs ?
my question is , If I go with ebay/online sale and got this ZS3 , will I have any problems?
I am not very interesting in editing video material , but , sometimes I do that , like add another sound to do clip .
Thats funny , I have Panasonic tx37x10 plasma , 37 inch plasma which has that VIERA link , as I read , it should be compatable with all Panasonic cameras.
another question ... you mentioned sister model , TZ6 . Here in my country , TZ6 is approx. 100 euros/150 USD cheaper than tz7 .
Is tz7 worth 150 USD more than tz6?
I know it doesnt record Hd videos , I can live with that.Is image quality poorer?in the end , I buy new digi cam for taking pictures , and I see that Hd video got lot of attention of reviewers all over the world, but at the nd of the day , I look at pictures , video rarely .
now about tz7....here in one store its showed like ina showcase , I mean , you can play with it . feels like a king of compact cameras , hard , stiff . In short , I feels like it was made by germans
If I will have choice , Ill defenitly fo with black . Silver looks .. I dont know , cheap.
somebody mentioned that dial on the top .. in time I played with it , dial was good enough.Its not best dial Ive seen , but its ok . Zoom seems like a bigger potential problem , its so..its moves to easily.But that wont be problem for me I dont zoom that much . Which I like on Pany tz7 is that it has fewer buttons than most compact cameras . its more conveniant to use.
