    Having looked on the auction sites its going between £50 – 90 and was wondering if it was still worth buying? I was thinking my max budget on one of these would be for an excellent condition model for £65 inc delivery.

    However, with technology/model advances is it worth just paying the extra for the latest model or buying another 2nd model?

    Movie mode HD is a must, not really fussed with manual controls as its all too complicated for me. In summary good pic’s, indoor shots would be a bonus (night time) as I know the above isn’t that fantastic at that. Cheers.

    TZ7 is still perfectly capable and the IQ is probably better than the current models IMO

    Although my main cameras are DSLR I still use this camera to carry around in the country when walking the dog. Lots of advantages - portable, convenient, easy to store in pockets. Good focal range and good IQ in most situations. Wide range of user controls as well.
