    The ultra-wide-angle 24mm lens is superbly versatile, extending to 720mm at the telephoto end. It is a LEICA DC VARIO-ELMAR lens, and passes Leica’s stringent standards resulting in crisp clarity and minimum distortion and flare. Power O.I.S is on hand to help keep your shots sharp, no matter which focal length you’re using, too.

    A new 20.3-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor is a boost in resolution from the TZ90’s predecessor, the TZ80 (18.1-megapixels). Combined with a high-power Venus processing engine, you can be assured of high image quality in a range of scenarios, even low light.

    Capture the perfect moment with 4K Photo

    Panasonic’s innovative 4K Photo function is available for the TZ90. Use the dedicated button on the TZ90’s body to access the various 4K PHOTO modes. Capture unmissable moments at 30fps and extract stills at 8-megapixel equivalent resolution - that’s large enough to print at up to A3 size. There are also a range of other useful functions which utilise 4K technology. Post Focus means you can change the point of focus after shooting, while Focus Stacking enables changing the depth of field after shooting by combining multiple images.

    Make sure you never miss a moment with super-fast autofocus (AF) speeds. Incorporating Panasonic’s DFD (Depth From Defocus) technology, the TZ90 boasts a 0.1 second AF speed. You can also employ burst shooting at 10 (AF-S) fps or 5 (AF-C) fps. A range of AF functions include Touch AF, 49-point AF points and Low Light AF help to lock on focus in a wide variety of different conditions. For those who are concerned with manual focusing, there’s lots of help on board for that too, including Focus Peaking and MF assist.

    Your all-important selfies are now easier than ever to capture, thanks to the 3.0-inch, 1,040k-dot touch-sensitive screen which, new for the TZ90, tilts to face forwards. Simply flip the monitor and the camera will automatically enter into self-shot mode. You have lots of choice when it comes to capturing the perfect self-portrait, with the new 4K Selfie mode ensuring you get the look you want.

    Another new feature is Panorama Selfie, putting you at the centre of a sweeping landscape - ideal for travel shots. Background control helps to give your portraits a professional look and feel, while beauty functions help make sure you always look your best. Keep it hands-free by using Buddy Shutter or Face Shutter to automatically trigger the camera when you pose a certain way.

    As well as the rear monitor, there’s an also an 0.2-inch, 1,166k-dot EVF (Electronic View Finder), giving you the flexibility to compose your images however you like. There’s an eye sensor which switches the EVF on automatically for seamless operation, while you can continue to use the screen to set AF point using Touch Pad operation.

    Something for everybody: advanced settings and control dials put the power in your hands

    Advanced users will be pleased to know that there’s a range of manual and enthusiast-level controls, giving you the power to adjust settings to match your exact way of shooting. There’s a full complement of manual and semi-automatic modes (PASM), while you can also shoot in the super flexible RAW format. Use the control ring around the TZ90’s lens to adjust settings such as aperture, while the control dial on the rear of the camera is also on hand to change other settings.

    It’s not just fantastic photos you can capture with ease using the TZ90, there’s a range of cutting-edge video technology on-hand too. You can record smooth, high-resolution QFHD 4K videos in 3840x2160 at frame rates up to 30p. Not only that, but there’s a range of functions to help you get the best videos possible, including tilt-correction and 5-axis image stabilisation. Use 4K Live Cropping to pan and adjust composition even after you’ve finished recording. You can also shoot stunning high-speed videos at 120 fps / 100 fps in full HD for a dramatic slow-motion effect.

    There’s a whole host of other exciting and useful features for the TZ90. Create beautiful night shots using the Light Composition mode, while Creative Filters give your images (including panoramic shots) a fun, dramatic or artistic effect.

    Use the camera’s 3cm macro functionality to get close to the subject for gorgeous frame-filling shots of insects, flowers and other small objects. Using Wi-Fi connectivity, you can connect the TZ90 to your smartphone or tablet to take remote control over the camera, or send images across to your device for quick sharing to social networking sites and email. USB charging gives you the flexibility to power up the camera without need for a dedicated battery charging unit - another feature which makes the TZ90 ideal for travelling.

    If you're looking for the best all-round near-pocketable travel zoom camera then the TZ90 is the one. Some low-light and full extension issues can cost it, but that's to be expected considering the overall feature set.

    This was my 2nd long zoom camera from Panasonic. Both of which the zoom went after a short space of time. This one I had literally around 5mths and the zoom kept sticking and creaking. I had it repaired and during lockdown have hardly used it but again the zoom has started creaking.

    I bought this to use on a recent big trip abroad which involved sight seeing, a road trip and a safari. This camera was very easy to use and I was able to take pictures at a wide range of distances and focus. It coped with all situations and circumstances.

    I love the Lumix travel range. This is my second and the extra setting from my TZ60 are fab. I am looking forward to taking it out and about and on my travels.


    I’ve had LUMIX cameras for some years now and decided on this model for its 4K capability and swivel screen, the images taken on the camera are quite outstanding and overall its a great camera.


    I’ve only had the camera a couple of weeks and already love it. It’s quite easy to use for someone who’s not particularly technical minded. I found uploading the photos to my phone and iPad quite straight forward. I’ve already taken some wonderfully clear, sharp and quality pictures.

    I bought this camera to provide more quality than my iPhone but be more portable than my Canon DSLR. I'm delighted to say it fits the bill perfectly, I have been more than impressed with the features it has, very technologically advanced compared my compact digital camera of 8 yrs ago The Leica lens...

    I bought this to replace a previous Panasonic LUMIX camera which I ruined when using whilst dogsledding. The camera is very intuitive to use and feels very solid. It has grown in size from the older model I had which means the old case doesn't fit which is a shame.

    A lovely little camera. Still trying to learn all of the settings but even just in point and squirt mode I have taken some very good pictures. A shame I cannot share one here.

    Very impressed with the quality of the images. I've used it mainly for landscape and some wildlife photography and have found the 30X zoom to be pretty amazing.

    Very versatile camera with all the bells and whistles that gives excellent results
