Normally I don't review a pair of cameras that are this similar, but since there's a lot of interest in the ZS15, I'm doing both. The chart below compares the two models side-by-side. While the ZS20 is the clear winner in the specs department, I have a feeling that the ZS15 will one-up it when it comes to image quality. Keep reading to find out if that's the case! Camera bundles have really gone downhill in recent years, as camera manufacturers try to keep their costs down.

Here's what you'll find in the box with the ZS Panasonic has put 70MB of memory into the ZS15, which holds fifteen photos at the highest quality setting. While buying a high speed card Class 6 or greater is a good idea, you certainly don't need to go overboard. This battery packs just 3. The ZS15's battery life is just a bit above the average for the group. Panasonic cameras can be fussy about generic batteries, so consider yourself warned.

Panasonic has changed the way in which batteries are charged on their models. Batteries are now charged internally via the USB connector, which can be plugged into the wall or your PC. The reason why manufacturers are using this method more and more is pretty obvious to me: it costs a lot less to include a small AC-to-USB adapter than a full external charger. The bad news is that internal charging is a lot slower -- it takes a whopping minutes to fully charge the ZS15's battery. It's more convenient than internal charging, allows you to charge a spare, and it's minutes faster, too.

Something else about the included charger: while it's an AC adapter, you cannot use it to power the camera - it's for charging only. If you want to use the ZS15 on "shore power", then you'll need to buy the hard-to-find AC adapter listed below. Panasonic includes PhotoFunStudio 8. This Windows-only software handles basic tasks fairly well, though the whole "wizard" system gets tired quickly. On the main screen you'll see the usual thumbnail view, and you can view photos by folders, date, or by things as specific as scene mode.

The software can learn to recognize faces much like the camera itself , which offers you another way to browse through your pictures. Available editing features give you the ability to crop, rotate, or change the aspect ratio of your photos, as well as adjusting color, brightness, saturation, and more.

You can apply special effects to photos, overlay text, or remove redeye. Something else that's nice is that the software maintains a history of the changes you've made to a photo, so you can go back in time if you don't like something you've done. PhotoFunStudio can also work with the movies produced by the ZS You can trim unwanted footage from a clip, overlay titles or "stamps", and convert the video to the easier-to-edit MPEG-4 format.

Another option is to record your videos in MPEG-4 MP4 format, which will be much easier to edit in the software of your choice. As with other recent Panasonic cameras, the ZS15's manuals are split into two parts. In the box is a leaflet that will get you up and running, but not much further. The full manual certainly won't win any awards for user-friendliness, but it should answer most questions you'll have about the ZS Instructions for using the included software is installed onto your PC.

This review was first published at www. I loved my ZS15 too - I bought the ZS50 to replace it because I love viewfinders, but it's just not as good; the images from the ZS50 are noisier and not as sharp especially in the corners; the camera is significantly bigger - I was so disappointed.

The viewfinder was not worth it; too small. If you've got one, keep your ZS15 close to your chest, don't let it go I'm hoping the ZS is going to be the one to replace it.

So, I was disappointed when spots began to appear on the lens; first one, then two, and eventually 6, and all were being recorded on my images. He said that small grains that collected around the outside of the lens were occasionally drawn into the camera when the camera was turned off.

The Panasonic FZ II is a worthy successor to the company's first large-sensor, long-zoom bridge camera, and a value-conscious rival to the popular Sony RXseries.

It's not the biggest or the smallest model out there, but it delivers just the right balance of size and features. Exposure Software's latest Exposure X5 app is a surprisingly fast, feature-packed and affordable alternative to Adobe's Lightroom — with no subscription required.
