"Great camera for travels with nice zoom and autofocus."4.5 starson by gandhalf_thewhite
Pros: Outstanding pictures provided you read the instructions before shooting. 8X zoom is awesome, scene modes are perfect for each situation, easy in using its resources. Battery life is also great. HD movie is clear and perfect.
Cons: Panoramic mode is poor. Mode selector should lock after selection.
Summary: In fact I bought the ZX1 in UK. It's the ZR1 sister from Europe. I studied a lot before buying this camera but it had to be a Panasonic 'cause I'm very used to their layout and the ergonomics they use. Although in manual they say it is not a 100% panoramic mode, I was disappointed with that resource. I really take great pictures with this camera even in burst mode or poor light ambiences. OIS is superb and really helps because my hands shake a little bit. The autofocus and the AF tracking really work fine for me and the colors are just perfect and bright. I would consider this one of the best cameras I have, in special for travels when I leave my Nikon D90 at home.
