Just ordered a replacement for my Panasonic Lumix TZ-6 today. I have been keeping an eye on ebay for a bargain and a Lumix TZ-10 came up for sale yesterday. It is a manufacturer refurbished unit and comes with a full manufacturers warranty. My TZ-6 was a refurb one as well and came packaged as a new one would there is no actual difference from buying a non refurbished one apart from the price and the fact the box is plain cardboard rather than the normal printed one.

I hope to post some of the results from it soon.

They really are no different from new products apart fro the fact they have been returned to the manufacturer for a repair, The post repair checks are probably much more rigorous than those performed on a production lone item.

The external casings are always replaced as well so it is returned to as new standard.

I paid £139 for it Mark, it is a UK model which is not always the case when you see cheap ones for sale elsewhere.

It's a good price mate. The TZ20 seems to be double that for not much more spec really.

Just had a look at the spec for the TZ-20, 14 MP instead of 12, 16 x zoom instead of 12 and 24mm wide angle instead of 25mm. The manufactures of electronics are very clever in the way they manage to create a constant demand for their products by releasing newer must have versions of products that every self respecting geek will hanker after, Apple are the masters of this.

To be honest I was more than happy with my TZ-6 it did all I wanted and more.

I used to work for Philips and we used to get the broken TV's in. They were basically stripped down and whole new replacement
parts fitted so yes as good as new except Philips used to pump them back out as new or so I was told. But as I said they
did come with a full manufacturers warranty. Really when you think about it ,if you buy a brand new one then they havent been tested
to there best where as a refurb has and has had all the bad bits removed and replaced.

Took a few at work yesterday, the quality is so much better than the one I have been using. Video clips are much better as well.

Still trying to RTFM, there are so many options available to choose from the various menus Shocked

Will probably use it in idiot proof mode mostly Embarassed
