Great camera for times I want to leave my DSLR at home.

  • Summary: I finally got out and snapped some photos with this little camera. It's bigger than some point and shoot models, but I got it because of the fantastic features and manual controls I can enable, should I decide to shoot manual. I got some great photos. I used it on a tripod with no problems. Navigating the controls is pretty straight forward. I still need to become familiar with many of the settings but out of the gate I am quite happy with my purchase so far.

this is the best camera bargain you will ever see

  • Summary: At this price, this is the best camera bargain you will ever see. It is not a simple point & shoot, and will take some time to learn what it is capable of doing. Good build quality & many features.

Good alternative for professionals, equally good for novice selfie-takers.

  • Summary: I use a d600 for personal travels and work but it's gotten a bit clunky. I purchased this model camera because it was small and compact and had good reviews. The touchscreen is a bit gimmicky, as well as the art filters, but if you're a professional, there are some really good qualities - the fast 1.8 lens and the quasi-manual focus mode with the PSAM dials.

This is a much better than average macro camera

A Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Most of my photos are done in Macro for eBay. This is a much better than average macro camera. Love the manual white balance which gives me the most accurate colors of all the cameras I have owned. The LCD screen is also accurate and sharp. Wish it was smaller for my small hands but I won't be traveling with it. This is the first camera that can photograph a Tanzanite crystal accurately.

Great camera!!

  • Summary: I choose this camera over lugging around my dSLR and have been continuously impressed with the immense range of settings. The lens is super bright. I'm so used to needing a flash for certain low light situations. The xz-2 simply doesn't need it. I got a really good deal on this camera. It is worth more than I paid for it.

I especially like the fast aperture from wide angle to telephoto

A Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera is quite versatile. There are many features on it that make it a pleasure to use. I especially like the fast aperture from wide angle to telephoto. The quality of the pictures is good too, but one really needs to keep the iso ideally under iso 800. The touch screen comes in handy for quick focus point change and reviewing photos. All in all a nice point and shoot camera with plenty of manual features that keep me using it.

Excellent camera. Good size and incredible low-light operations

  • Summary: Excellent camera. Good size and incredible low-light operations. It would be nice if it had a longer zoom and wifi but the XZ-2 easily out performs much higher priced cameras I have used.

  • Summary: Great camera! Takes great shots and is easier to tote around than our Rebel. We took this one to Disney with us and it did a great job! We even had a little fun with the preset features.
