Advice required: Panasonic Lumix TZ7 or Canon Ixus 990?

Discussion in 'Canon' started by Adam Lipscombe, Dec 9, 2009.

  1. Folks,


    I am not an expert, hence the question.
    I want this camera for everyday use, kids, dogs, scenery etc.
    I need excellent pics with ease-of-use.

    The reviews I have read suggest these 2 machines are at the top of the point-and-shoot tree.
    But I cannot decide between them.
    I believe the video capability of the Panasonic is more advanced in that it allows zooming while filming.


    Any comments? Which would you choose?


    TIA - Adam

    Have you handled them both? Gone through some of the menus? Chances are
    pretty good that one will feel better or seem more intuitive to you -
    sounds like the one you'd want.

  3. that's a bit difficult cos I live in the back-of-beyond in Portugal.
    Its a days drive to the sort of shops that might have them. Maybe I will go at the weekend.

    I am going to buy through Amazon, cos they will deliver here for only 1 Euro more than in the UK.


    Thanks - Adam

    Hi Adam!

    I googled "lumix tz7 review vs Canon Ixus 990" and got the following:

    http://www.cameras.co.uk/comparisons/canon-powershot-sx200is-panasonic-dmc-tz7.cfm
    http://www.geekwithlaptop.com/compa...ixus-990-is-panasonic-lumix-dmc-tz7-4316_4435

    This and others might give you something to think about.
    However, there is also the tangible: to see for yourself and try them "first
    hand"

    Some factors: general built, size, ease of handling, manus and other
    specifics such as ISO (one has 80 minimum, the other 100, type of battery,
    what comes with the kit, optical Zoom (Lumix has greater power), etc.

    Take care,

    Marcel

    I recognize that it's not always easy. But, OTOH, you probably wouldn't
    buy a new car without a test drive.
