Good little pocket sized camera. Great for travel.
1 September 2011
Summary: We bought this camera at an airport on our way to Europe because we had forgotten to pack ours. We didn't have many camera choices and just hoped for the best. Well, turns out it's a good little camera with long battery life. We've since given away our old travel camera and taken this one to several countries. It's light and small and can be tucked into a pocket or purse. Which is great considering all the luggage restrictions these days.
Summary: It was a great price on a nice compact camera. The problem is it started having problems after about 9 months of use. It would do an auto shut down everytime I turned it on after about 15 seconds. I checked for patches and updates to the camera's firmware at the manufacturers website but they didn't have one. I did make sure I had fully charged batteries, etc. If the Camera was in "movie" mode; it would not shut down, only when on "auto" for taking pics.
Summary: This camera delivers where others like sony,canon,nikon,samsung... and many other can not deliver. I say this because ive owned them all and . For the money. This is the best point and click camera on the market. Its so sharp and clear. Makes good video also. Great buy !
Summary: This is a great camera and an excellent buy. I purchased it for my teenage son and he loved it. Too bad he LOST it on our trip to Israel this past summer along with the over 100 pictures he had taken!
Summary: Being a novice photographer I wanted a camera thath would take a clear picture and one that i didn't have to fuss with or take ten minutes to take a picture. The Panasonic Lumix DCM-FS5P-K has proven to be just what I was looking for. Once I have it set up I can aim and shoot and get clear 10.1 MP pictures. The price was excellent compared to others in its class. It is small enough to put in my shirt pocket, but has a large enough screen to view all the action.
Poor focus, slow shutter response, what's the point of using it?

Summary: I bought this as a pocket camera to complement my D-SLR (there you have it, I know what a good camera should produce), and my expectations were low, as I didn't need this to be a 'great' camera. I used the Panasonic to take about 200 pictures in varying conditions inside and outside. In all environments, about 2/3 of the pictures were out of focus as the camera tried to focus on random things in the field of vision. The shutter response (e.g.
Summary: I wanted a small camera to take on vacation. Although I've always used Canons, I decided to buy the Panasonic based on its great reviews, the Leica lens, and the image stabilization feature. Well, it certainly is pocket-sized, but since the monitor covers almost the entire back of the camera, it's very easy to see what you're doing. The "intelligent auto" mode makes it relatively simple to use right out of the box.
