Summary: This is a superb camera. You can set the camera like a pro if you want to, or just set it on Intelligent Automatic and use it as a point & shoot camera. That's what I do, and I get wonderful pictures. Hint: Don't buy a used one, I did and it was really beat up.
Summary: I bought a used one and it was in an almost perfect condition. I purchased it on Friday and got it on Monday, which was incredible, althought that must have been because it was from Maryland to virginia.
Summary: I found this camera to be well built with lots of features. Good chip sensitivity, good battery life. Very responsive for action shots. Some indoor shots can be washed out by the flash but overall this is a great little rig for the money.
Summary: I was looking for a camera that would be perfect to carry around in my purse and that is what this one is. I have a Canon I use for my big photos and the Lumix is like my Canon in a small case. Perfect for quick photos on the go.
Summary: This camera worked out great for a canoe trip I went on as well as some events I've attended recently. It is small and fits easily into my pocket, but still took great photos! The touch screen is a great feature.
Summary: I purchased this camera for the low lighting features, but I was very disappointed. In full wide the lens is 2.2 and takes great low light shots, but once you zoom in the f stop jumps up, ISO goes up and then the problems start. At 400 the noise in these pictures was so bad that they were unusable.
Summary: Picture quality is excellent. However the design for ease of use is lacking. The menu button on the rear lower right is constantly being tripped while taking a picture. If you are right handed this is almost a certainty.
