ZS10 is crap compared to zs7. I own a zs7, bought the ZS10 and returned it. It had a few things that were nice, like rapid fire shooting, but image qaulity was really bad.. Think your better off with the new canon or sony..
Agreed. I bought a TZ20/ZS10 after reading and getting caught up in all the hype and sadly the reviews over at Amazon. The only review that I ought to have read was the one here at Camera Labs that attested to the shockingly poor image quality of this camera. Even at ISO 100, the level of noise is simply unacceptable for a camera at this price point. No amount of enthusiast extras, bells and whistles can make up for the poor image quality at the very core of this camera. I had prayed that a firmware update may magically rectify the issue, but alas, it didn't, unsurprisingly. As the kids today say... "bad camera is bad".
I learnt my lesson - never pay attention to all the rave 5star reviewers at Amazon, 99% of whom clearly have very low standards of what passes for a premium point and shoot. Instead listen to the 1% who gave the camera it's deserved 1star rating, citing poor image quality as the reason. And of course, read the excellent reviews over here at Camera Labs!
