Wanna know what the backup digital camera is for many amateur and professional photographers?

Look no further than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5K digital camera. In fact, any of the Panasonic models will do.

Spitting out images that rival digital SLRs, its 9-megapixel resolution supports poster-sized prints. Consider the Nikon D40 Digital SLR camera has only 6.1-megapixels, this simple point-and-shoot camera supports 9-megapixels. It has a 10x optical Leica zoom lens with a new Panasonic Venus Engine that reduces noise, continous auto focus (AF) and face detection anywhere in the frame.

View your pictures on its 3.0-inch LCD and try one of many predefined shooting modes; from soft portrait to aerials to candlelight to night scenery; with its intelligent scene selector.

So it came as no surprise when fellow photographer Nerds Eye View and I unknowingly pulled out the same backup camera on a recent trip!
