Summary: The Lumix DMC-FS3 is a stripped down Leica. What? Yes, it is true. Leica is one of the most dependable names in photography, often collector items worthy of museum display. Every couple of years Leica and Lumix get together and work on compact digital cameras.
Summary: I've had the Lumix DMC-FS3 for a few weeks, and I'm quite satisfied with it overall. However there are definitely some things to consider before buying one for yourself. Here is my list of pros and cons... PROS: -Starts up really quickly. -Short recovery time after photo is taken.
Summary: Dont use this cemera with the 4G card after a awaile all the pics will be deleted.. Panasonic should have informed about that Error all my pictures from a month of backpacing were deleted. I havnt tried it with a 2G card yet
Summary: I had several criteria for chosing a camera. There are so many choices nowadays :) 1. Decent pictures, always a plus with a camera 2. Movie mode, high quality 3. 720p support on movie 4. Able to record up to 1 hour continously. This camera was a compromise. But I am very happy with the compromise.
Summary: After a short comparison with a few other cameras, I bought this model. Part of the reason was for the Leica lens...it's incredibly sharp. The camera is quite easy to use, and the controls are 'intuitive' once you have used them.
Summary: This camera worked well from the outset, with no need for detailed instructions to get started. It is easy to use and takes good quality pictures for those seeking a record of day-to-day situations, and may be of some use for certain work-related activities.
Summary: I bought this as my 2nd camera (already have a Canon EOS 350). Having reviewed many other options currently in same price range I'm happy with what I bought. It replaces my Casio compact which I'd had for 5 years and broke. It's very lightweight, slim, easy to use.
Summary: Bought this to compliment my SLR. Really pleased with the results. Good value for money. The lose a point because changing camera mode is a bit of a fiddle, but in terms of quality the pictures are excellent.
