New Panasonic ZS10/TZ20/TZ22, ZS8/TZ18 compact-fun-zooms grow to 16x
And now time for the newest models in the TZ-series! Panasonic is rolling out a new duo, the ZS10/TZ22/TZ20 and ZS8/TZ18. The zoom-ratio-wars have affected these cameras as well, as they have now jumped to a 16x zoom ratio starting at 24mm eq. There are differences in features between the two, as Panasonic wants to direct buyers towards the ZS10/TZ22/TZ20 model with its CMOS sensor, GPS, and 1080 video.
Potential point of confusion: I don't know for sure if the TZ22 and TZ20 are the same camera with different Asian and European names. The name is ZS10 in North America for sure. Can y'all manufacturers please stick to ONE name per camera? It's bad enough we have 200+ new models per year, do we have to have 3 different names per camera???
