Excerpt: I am probably not your ordinary person who would buy a point and shoot, but am a avid DSLR user. We live in the west where hiking is very hard at times. I don't always like to take my DSLR equipment with me so started looking for a more compact camera with a good zoom to take on some trips and hiking in the mountains. I first found a Lumix point and shoot and purchased it..
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Great backup and sometimes primary for wildlife shooting.

Summary: I bought this as a back up to a Sony RX10 for a long vacation of animal viewing. I added a charger and 4 rechargeables with the AAs as spares. 30x worked great on the long shots. I've always liked Nikon - F and D90 but previously used Canon S50 for convenience - this is my new convenient camera. It's light and relatively quick. My only knock is the lack of a view finder.
Summary: Great little camera ! Sister had bought one and has been pleased .She recommended one for my wife's birthday . My wife found it easy to use and takes quality pictures . Lots of useful features .
Summary: The camera has a great screen, and pictures are very clear. Very easy camera to use. I have a canon at home and use this one for work, I think it is a much easier camera to use. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for an easy camera that takes good pictures.
Summary: I chose to purchase this camera since an updated version was already coming out by Nikon - the L830 and it is more expensive. This Camera - the L820 is a fabulous purchase and I highly recommend this seller and purchasing the entire package deal. You won't go wrong. I am not a professional photographer but this camera has so many options and is very easy to use.
