Herald Sun - Switched On - - Gadgets -

Pana­sonic, $499, pana­sonic.com.au ★★★★ Pana­sonic al­ways packs a lot into its Travel Zoom com­pact cam­eras, and the lat­est model man­ages to squeeze in a few more features. The TZ40 main­tains a slen­der, 196g form and keeps the 24mm wide-an­gle Le­ica lens with 20x op­ti­cal zoom from the last model. What it does add is more res­o­lu­tion, both on its sen­sor that now reaches 18.1 megapix­els and on its rear three-inch dis­play that of­fers 920,000 dots for a clearer pic­ture of the im­ages you snap. More im­por­tantly, this cam­era adds wi-fi con­nec­tiv­ity for fast up­loads and an NFC chip so you can pair this cam­era to a smart­phone to share your creations. The Pana­sonic Im­age App isn’t as easy to use as it could be, but it’s an im­por­tant ad­di­tion users should ap­pre­ci­ate.
