A few weeks ago, I broke my Panasonic Lumix TZ-31 during a photo walk and got myself the new Panasonic Lumix TZ-41. It has a fantastic 20 x optical zoom which I used it to take this photo of a Red Panda at the Zoo Schönbrunn in Vienna. The photo is almost directly out of the camera. I just increased definition using Apple Aperture [App Store Link]
Additionally to the 20 x zoom, the Lumix TZ-41 [Amazon Link] has automatic GPS photo tagging and it creates 3D Photos.
