Summary: I am not a photographer. I've never been a photographer. My mom and my sister have skills. I don't. I've always admitted photographers, and I've always wanted to have art on my walls that I have a personal connection with.
Summary: I really do love this camera. built like a tank,great wide angle,great color and lots of bells and whistles BUT. i took it to local bike races last week and was svery frustrated. the time of the lag and black frame shots just were not relative to anything moving. it was all luck. just terrible.
Summary: I think that the people who complain about this camera are comparing it, unfairly, to digital SLRs that cost a thousand $$ more. I took it with me on a trip to China last month, and got excellent results.
Good for What it is...but it's still a point and shoot

Summary: It's a great point and shoot , but it's limitations for the advanced photographer are apparent. Increasing pixels on a small censor doesn't always help image quality, and at higher ISO's it is a negative factor due to the increase in noise. I found images made with ISO's over 100 unacceptable.
Summary: I've been a recent subscriber to the great Canon G10 vs Panasonic LX3 debate. This is a decision you're going to have to face if you're looking for the top point and shoot. I read a million reviews and still could not decided. The Web is great, but the Web is diverse!
