This is my 2nd Lumix Camera. I thought my DMC TZ5 was great, but this one really outshines it. I'm most impressed with the 20X zoom and the excellent stability achieved when in zoom mode. I like the fact that it uses a chargeable battery, but am not so happy that the battery is unique to this specific camera. Also, there is not a separate battery charger. It must be charged while in the camera, which defeats the purpose for having a second battery. This camera takes very good quality 3-D photos. Color quality is also very good as well as image sharpness. Another feature is the separate button for recording movies. An action shot is easily missed if you have to fumble with setting your camera up to record. With the DMC ZS20, just point & shoot for stills or live action. I would not hesitate to recommend this camera to a friend.
It's smaller than I expected (I have arthritis so this may be a problem) but it looks capable of doing incredible things -- so many more functions than my old camera. This will definitely require reading the entire instruction book cover to cover. Looking forward to wonderful pictures.
