    When I wanted to test a camera, I used my own card to take the pics with then brought the card home and checked out the pics on the computer monitor. This may help you to. Any size card will do to check the actual picture quality. I have taken many pictures and thought they were perfect focus only to find that they were not when viewed full screen (19"). This was not my camera's fault though. Good Luck

Don't know what the implications of getting one to Japan are, but surely you can find something in the same price ballpark can't you?

    Here's the deal at NewEgg.

    Thanks again for the scoop!
    Thanks for the link!

    It's easy to get stuff to Japan. I just have my sister in Boston send it to me.

    Hi,

    I'm sure some review sites from Japan will publish in-depth reviews soon. With help of The Fish (http://babelfish.altavista.com/) we could have some infos soon.

    Only question is: do somebody knows some good Japanese review sites, especially some which will cary DMC-TZ1 review?

    BTW, I'm waiting in Europe for release (mid of April?).

    Bye,
    Ljubo

    One site with DCM-TZ1 review is:

    http://plusd.itmedia.co.jp/lifestyle...4/news100.html

    The Fish http://babelfish.altavista.com/ gives a rough english translation, but there are some pictures too

    Bye,

    Nice photo samples there. The ISO 80-200 shots in particular looked extremely beautiful. From 400 I think you can start to see some degredation.

    Very impressive!

    A few shots with my new TZ1! :)

    I did end up getting one today.

    I just took a few shots so far. Almost every one has come out fine I think!

    Here are a few samples:

    Note that these are not originals. These are screen captures off my monitor, which is why they are relatively small.

    Tomorrow after taking some more I'll upload some originals.

    Finally

    I am so glad I found this site. I have been going to dpreview and have sent them over 20 emails asking for help with registration. I did not get ONE reply.(webmaster, complaints, etc.) Anyway, I have been waiting for any info on this camera and happy to see your post doug. You have made up my mind to buy this camera. I hope I am able to buy it before my May vacation. Amazon.com shows it available May 1 and that wont cut it for me. Keep those pics coming and thanks again doug.

    Thumbs up The pics at > ISO 200 are okay

The ceramic images are not the best test subjects though. I'd like to see outdoor images in bright light to see what the CA looks like.

    TZ1 is an appealing camera for travel, however....
    - the lack of (at least) aperture priority gives me pause;
    - the lens is not quite wide enough at the short end.

    The LX1 (at low ISO) on the other hand is a killer camera.
