Description

Initially I found a user manual for DMC-TZ5 and DMC-TZ50 in the Japanese Panasonic website. However the user manual is in Japanese language. Subsequently I tried to search on Panasonic USA website and found another manual, DMCTZ50.PDF. As the PDF is meant for TZ50 which is a WIFI-enabled version of TZ5, I do not think it is suitable for TZ5 users.

Further search reveals another version of manual, it is labeled as [DMC-TZ4 TZ5.pdf] but unfortunately it is only available in Russian language. I noticed the internal document number: VQT1P92 and I continue the search using this number instead of the keyword TZ5 which do no lead to any useful English version of the manual.

Finally I managed to find an English version of the user manual/guide for Panasonic TZ5. It is from Panasonic Europe website so there might be some differences in features for your local version of TZ5.

This Operating Instruction manual is meant for Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ4 and DMC-TZ5 digital cameras. As usual, Panasonic advises users to read these manuals completely before start using the cameras. The 53-pages long manual is divided into logical sections, according to the operation types:

  1. Before use
  2. Preparation
  3. Basic Operations
  4. Record Applications
  5. View Applications
  6. Connecting Other Devices
  7. Others: LCD monitor displays, messages displays, specifications...
