An excellent simple camera

Summary: A lovely little camera that I bought for my wife at a good price that takes sharp, bright pictures. It is extremely easy to use and my wife is constantly delighted with it. On the other hand, in light of the high current price and the advances in later cameras (especially the increased telephoto ranges and superior anti-shake programs) it might be worthwhile checking out later models such as the lumix fh-25 or fh-27 or the lumix zs-1.
Summary: This is the 3rd Lumix camera in my household. I wanted a truly pocket'able camera for my hiking & biking activities. My choice came down to the Canon SD1300IS and this FX-48. After reading all the reviews and from my own good experience, I picked the Lumix. So far, I have been using for taking outdoor and indoor shot and the picture quality is superb. The iA setting get most of the exposure etc right most of the time. Highly recommend this little gem.
Summary: Great camera! I bought this one after my FX-9 after 5years of hard use had the backlight go out. Picture quality is upgraded from the FX-9 plus has a higher megapixel. Zoom feature and stabilization are excellent. The iA feature works pretty well. I have yet to have any issues with it. The only "down" side is the lag time between when a picture is taken and when the next one is ready after initial review.
Summary: This camera, which can be bought around $200 plus or minus $25, is pretty good. I have an $800 Leica D-LUX4 and this camera is sort of a little brother to the D-LUX, and even the controls are virtually the same. It's much slimmer and smaller than the D-LUX. STRENGTHS: tiny dimensions, big screen decent battery life wide 25mm Leica lens 2.8 lens relatively fast (though the D-LUX4 for example has a faster 2.0 lens) WEAKNESSES: high ISO performance is mediocre, 800 is just...
Summary: I bought this new camera for my wife shortly before a reunion visit with high school girl friends. She loves it and when the other girls saw the photo results at least one remarked, "I need to get a new digital camera". When the wife is happy, everyone is happy.
Summary: I have 4 cameras because every member of my family buy the own one. And this is the best of the 4. I have a Cybershot, and 2 samsungs. But the Panasonic Lumix is the best! Better pictures, even at night. You need to proove.

Summary: This is a gem of a camera. It outclasses even the more expensive Panasonic models with it's bright lens and other features. I honestly cannot fault this camera for the money. It has never let me down with a bad picture. It does brilliant close ups, videos, portraits - everything. Go for it.
