I love my Panasonic TZ5. I’ve had it just over a year now, and it’s been a flexible friend, easy to live with. Image quality is good too. But it isn’t a DSLR. And it has its limitations. The photo below is one I took recently from atop a monument, looking down on some skateboarders. It’s a very average photo. But it had so much potential with those shadows. But it’s at times like this that you realise the limitations of a point and shoot compact camera. It’s why I’m not getting the Canon S90. This photo, all by itself, made me decide to hang on a bit longer and get the DSLR I need to get the most out of photo opportunities like these.
