This looks to be a wonderful camera for holidays, and much more besides. It packs a great range of high end features in a nice slim body so you shouldn’t have any problems fitting it into a pocket or hand bag.
The 1” sensor, which is about 4 times the size of the sensor in most compact cameras, is capable of great images, even when used in low light. This big sensor is combined with a really useful 10x zoom from a wide full frame equivalent of 25mm to 250mm so it’s brilliant for family groups or distant objects. The TZ110 also shoots Ultra High Definition 4K video and is really well stabilised, so the video does it’s best to stay rock steady.
A Bag of Tricks
The image quality from the 20.1MP one-inch sensor is great but, in my opinion, one of the very best features of this camera stems from the way it utilises its 4K capabilities to provide unique, and useful, photo features.
Ever taken a photo of an important event, like a family get together, only to find that the camera missed the focus and the picture is useless? Well that could be a thing of the past. The TZ110 can take a 4K image and let you choose the focus point after you’ve taken the photo…brilliant!
There are so many times where I’ve wanted to take an action shot but my timing’s been off and I click the shutter too late. Well this camera has that covered too with something called 4K Pre-Burst. Amazingly, this feature gives you a selection of 60 frames to choose from, 30 are taken within the second after you clicked the shutter button and 30 are taken from the second before you clicked it!
One of the problems with using stills from video footage has always been the poor image quality of the resulting photo. Well that’s a thing of the past, 4k images are the equivalent of 8MP photos. They display perfectly on 4K tv screens but can also produce good A3 and excellent A4 printed photos. That’s as much as most of us ever want.
This camera not only features a lovely touch screen panel but also provides you with an electronic viewfinder, great in our often-harsh sunlight where even the best screens are difficult to see.
