Panasonic Lumix TZ27

HotUKDeals recently posted details of an offer on the Panasonic Lumix TZ27 – available from Currys – it appears to be based on last years Panasonic Lumix TZ30 – but lacking the GPS feature. This year, the new models are called the TZ35 and TZ40. The TZ27 is still an interesting camera, with a 14 megapixel MOS sensor, 20x optical zoom lens, 3inch screen, full HD video recording, 260 shot battery life, and it’s available for £159.

The nearest competitors for a price comparison are the Panasonic Lumix TZ30 – available from Amazon UK for £210, which adds GPS.
