Rod, Southampton Experienced amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
What I want is a compact with a good lens, zoom, easy to use AUTO, and manual options. These are all present in a neat and well made box.
Bad points:
I am 70ish, and wanted a compact to suplement my , more bulky, and ageing DSLR. I find the many electronic extras being added to recent products unnecessary for a creative photographer and too much to learn for even a reasonably intelligent non-techie. I may never use a lot of what it can do.

Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The 14.1-megapixel DMC-TZ18 features a 24mm ultra wide-angle 16x optical zoom LEICA DC lens(35mm camera equivalent: 24-384mm), including Nano Surface Coating technology which dramatically reduces ghost and flare. The 16x optical zoom can be used both in photo and movie recording. The 24mm wide-angle lens captures approx. 213% larger viewing space compared to a normal 35mm lens.
With the Intelligent Resolution technology, 3 areas – outlines, detailed texture areas and soft gradation areas – are automatically detected. Apart from the uniform enhancement of sharpness, this technology precisely performs signal processing pixel by pixel in the most effective way according to the area. As a result, images are clear and crisp. The Intelligent Zoom extends zoom ratio by approx. 1.3x maintaining the image quality even combining a digital zoom. 16x optical can virtually extend to 20x equivalent.
The POWER O.I.S. nearly doubles the hand-shake correction power of conventional MEGA O.I.S. So you can take sharp, clear zoom shots without blurring. Activating POWER O.I.S., Intelligent ISO Control, Face Detection AF/AE with Face Recognition, Intelligent Scene Selector with Sunset Mode, Intelligent Exposure and AF Tracking, the camera does all the work in the iA Mode. And the Happy Mode optimizes color saturation and brightness for vividly memorable scenes.
The DMC-TZ18 can record movies in high-definition(1,280×720 pixels at 30 fps in Motion JPEG format). The powerful 16x optical zoom is available in movie recording. The DMC-TZ18 can also upload movies onto YouTube, and photos onto Facebook. All you have to do is checkmark images you want to share and insert SD/SDHC/SDXC Memory Card into a computer. Uploading automatically starts just by following the guidance. With operation this easy, you can instantly share your photos and movies with your family and friends all over the world.
The DMC-TZ18 features large 3.0-inch Intelligent LCD. It automatically adjusts the screen brightness as the surrounding brightness level changes. The big screen reflects fine details, making it easy to check the focus before shooting. It also serves as a small photo and video viewer, allowing you and friends to enjoy viewing images together. The DMC-TZ18 provides easy-to-use manual controls. The Aperture-priority creates a soft-focused background effect and the Shutter-priority produces a dynamic rendering of streaming water.
