5.0 out of 5 stars the best X2, Pan ZS15., April 18, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS15 12.1 MP High Sensitivity MOS Digital Camera with 16x Optical Zoom (Black) (Electronics)
Got rid of my Nikon 9100 2 weeks after buying the ZS15. Nikon screen better but the ZS15 does everything else better. ZS15 has best menu setup in business. Preset ISO at 400, great pictures, no noise. Set IR very sharp pictures. Set C1 for flash, you're good to go. Video is very smooth. Camera is very fast,fast. After market batteries work great. Buy a couple & a wall charger at Amazon for $20 & a screen protector & go take great pictures.Note, don't buy this camera if: you want more zoom that you can't keep steady;need more pixels that slow write time;really need a second microphone 1" from other mike; want to play with a pop-up flash that doesn't work at 10';or if you have an extra $70-100 burning your pocket. DO buy the ZS15 at a great Amazon price, take lots of pictures/video & buy a second ZS15 for your spouse who will say, better than her treasured TZ3, & my this digi-cam is f, fast. Read the camera mags, the ZS15 is Camera of the year (you will not miss waiting for a stupid GPS program to eat your battery & tell you your hienie is not on first base).

Hi Randy,
I am debating between buying ZS15 and ZS20. I don't care much about the GPS in ZS20, but was thinking the AVCHD format that ZS15 shoots videos in might not play well on today's interconnected TVs. ZS20 shoots in AVCHD and as well the more common MP4. That and the stereo video of ZS20 was why I was thinking about buying ZS20. But I hear ZS15 sensor might be better for low light, so might save the $60 and buying the second battery. Could you please paste the link from Amazon of the after market batteries that worked for you as I see couple of them selling but since these new models, some of them don't list if they will work on ZS15 or ZS20.

The ZS15 also shoots both MP4 and AVCHD. The only difference is it won't shoot 1080p60; it will shoot 1080p30 if you want it, though. I shoot at 720p30 if I want a video - looks fine on my 42" LCD. It's a touch soft on my 120" projector screen, though.... ;)
