Summary: I am a long time camera collector and user(see my other reviews) and won this camera on ebay, along with two other point and shoots for $10. The owner didn't know if they worked due to lost chargers, well they did and this one was mint and had only shot 230 pics! This camera combines 8mp (just right for a small sensor) with a good noise reduction system,an outstanding Leica lens(same one as fx07) and enhanced color processing. The results are Outstanding for a compact!
Summary: I just received this camera Thurday, 3/6 and am loving it so far. I haven't "figured it all out" yet but am really pleased with the ease of use and picture quality. As said in a previous review, the colored casing (I got blue) has a really nice feel to it. I originally wanted the black but most places were sold out. I am actually glad I got the blue - it's a really dark blue and gives the camera a good look to it.
Summary: Really wish Panasonic would go back to making this camera but with an increased mega pixel rate. I've looked at newer ones in this line but they don't offer the same robust features of this great little point-and-shoot.
Summary: My past vacation pictures were typically marginal and I spent way too much time fiddling with the settings. I bought this point and shoot for our spring break vacation and the results are as hoped for. I also bought a Transcend 8 GB SDHC card for $35 and I took lots of 30 fps movies and 700 pics at maximum resolution and still did not max the card out (3.5 Gig left on the card) which left room for another 1700 pics. Here are some of the things I really liked.
Summary: I bought this camera new back in 2008. The camera worked fine for the most part. My only complaint with the camera while it worked was slowness and poor color quality for indoor shots. The main problem with the camera overall was that it just didn't last. Within two years it stopped working entirely. I sent it in to Panasonic for repair. They said it couldn't be repaired. They charged me $90 and sent me an inexpensive reconditioned FS7 as a replacement.
Summary: the camera is fine. the lens cover which is supposed to open and close is a total, miserable failure. after having the camera a month or two, it doesn't close well enough to store safely, nor open enough to take a picture. i have to use toothpicks or my pocketknife to move the cover when it gets stuck. do a little googling to see more commentary on this issue, which is also present in other panasonic models.
Summary: I dont know much about cameras, and this makes it simple. There are options to change and select if you know what you are doing. But for someone like me i can leave it alone and still take great pictures. The manual does not do a good job of fully explaining the options, (it tells you how to change them from one to another, but not what they mean) So you need some camera knowledge to understand some of it...
Summary: AWESOME. Best camera I have ever come across for its size. It takes awesome pictures and amazing video. I spend three months on researching digital cameras. I purchased it for $130 with shipping refurbished. This camera was rated one of the best of 2008 The only parts that you have to remember: 1. Press down as you are going through pictures cause I deleted some sweet video because I thought it was a bad picture. 2.
Summary: I bought this camera just over a year ago for my fiance', as an egangement gift. At first, we were both pleased, the camera was easy to use, and photo quality was good - not outrageous, but good. Then things started to go wrong. First, the LCD viewing frame cracked. His fault, as he did not have a case yet, but the screen is so large that this is bound to happen; it took about 3 days. Secondly, the lens case started sticking.
