    HELP PLEASE :)

    Hi, I am planning a trip on January 12th and I don't know what I should use as a camera for the trip: my good old Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5 or my new iPhone 6 plus. Even though the iPhone 6 plus is much newer, it seems to me that the good old Lumix is still a better camera.
    What would you use as your camera for better pictures if you were me: the iPhone 6 plus or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ5?

    I really have no clue about cameras and I have no idea what all the specs mean :(

    I'd appreciate some opinions (please).

    Thanks,

    Cathy

    The iPhone 6 has a very capable camera. It's probably better than the TZ5 for shooting in indoors or in low light situations. However there are two big advantages in using the TZ5. One is that the TZ5 has a 10x zoom lens, so you can get nice closeup shots. The iPhone 6 uses digital zoom, which is much less effective than the optical zoom of the TZ5. Another advantage of the TZ5 is that it's easier to use (in my opinion) because it only performs one function, unlike the iPhone.

    Why not take along both?

    Thank you very much for your answer, Andy!!!

    I'll probably take both then and use the iPhone for indoor/low light pics.

    Have a great 2015!
