“The Lumix TZ18 / ZS8 […] delivers the same core features as the higher-end TZ20 / ZS10 at a cheaper price, and should therefore appeal to no-frills or budget-conscious super-zoom buyers.”
Camera Labs has posted their review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 / TZ18, a compact ultra zoom digital camera with 14.1MP resolution (on a 1/2.33-in. CCD), 16x ultra wide-angle optical zoom (24-384mm equiv.), optical Image Stabilization, 3.0-in. (230k-dot) LCD, AF Tracking, Intelligent Scene Selector, Intelligent AUTO (iA) mode, and movie 640 x 480 @ 30fps.
