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.
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.
Summary: Too bad I couldn't give 1 star. I had an older Lumix that lasted two years. When that camera was stolen, I purchased this model from my local B & M. The first time I took it out, I used it 8 times.
