Panasonic TZ5 Price & Availability Watch

First published on: Tuesday, 3 February 2009

The prices of most digital cameras trend downwards over time, and the same price drop should occur in the case of the Panasonic TZ5 “big-zoom”, compact digital camera.

I’m not planning for any scheduled updates, but do check back here from time to time for the latest prices and availability information on the Lumix DMC-TZ5 and accessories.

The TZ5 is sold in three colors: black, silver and blue, and prices may vary between them.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5K 9MP Digital Camera with 10x Wide Angle MEGA Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Black): $399.95 ($110 price increase since the last update).

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5S 9MP Digital Camera with 10x Wide Angle MEGA Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Silver): $259.99 ($12.96 price reduction).

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5A 9.1MP Digital Camera with 10x Wide Angle MEGA Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Blue): $298.99 ($19.04 price increase).

Typical accessories for the Lumix TZ5

Panasonic CGA-S007A/1B Rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery: $31.24. Get a second, backup battery for your DMC-TZ5. This way, you can be sure your camera continues to have a power source during extended shooting sessions.

For storage, the TZ5 uses SD or SDHC cards.

Refer to Rob Galbraith’s SD / SDHC card write speed tests (done on a Nikon D90) to get an idea on the relative write and read speeds of different brands of cards. At the time of writing (Oct 29, 2009), the SanDisk Extreme III SDHC cards occupy the top two spots.

To ensure smooth recording of video and high resolution images, go for Class 6 or faster cards.

Good luck shopping for your Panasonic TZ5!
