Panasonic Lumix FX700: Better for video and bright light

Summary: My chief complaint is that in going to 16 MPixels, each one doesn't collect much light. You need daylight to get a picture that isn't grainy. I think the older cameras with fewer pixels took better pictures. The video and audio recording are excellent. I wish it had an audio only mode.
Summary: I have had my Lumix FX-700 for a month now and I love it. It is compact and slips right into my pocket. The basic features for pictures and video are real easy to use. Just flick a switch and press buttons. I have had it set on the automatic setting and all pictures have turned out great. I have taken a couple videos outside which are excellent of my rocket launch.
This camera is just what we were looking for as a gift for our daughter

Summary: We bought this as a birthday present for our 21-year-old daughter. She had broken hers while studying in Ireland. This is a perfect camera for her. The size is right - small. The resolution is great - high. The pictures are perfect. And the price was a good price for a camera of this high quality.
Summary: I purchased this camera because it was highly rated in consumer reports. I'm very happy. HD video, very clear photos. Now, you can buy a panasonic model without the extras this one has and still get an excellent quality shot and the camera is thiner. This one is a bit thick because of the extras. 5-stars all the way, specially with the price.
Summary: I bought this camera for a European trip with my son. The trip went well as did the camera. After 8 months, the sensor failed and developed a central black area. Unfortunately, this occurred during the middle of a backpacking trip to Yosemite. The entire second half of the trip, all images including video were spoiled with a fixed central black smudge. I was crushed.
Summary: I always look for things that gives most value for the buck!!. This camera is like that it has features of $400 camera and costs like $200. Things I like about it . 1) it is fast, so you never miss the moment 2) video/audio recording is great 3) Intelligent mode works great, so you don't have to worry about choosing different modes for different light setting and conditions.
Great wide angle. Good processing. But there are problems.

Summary: If you want a wide-angle lens in your pocket camera, there's nothing like having it. I do love that. And the "intelligent auto" mode is quite good on light and color in most of the environments I've tried so far. I'm getting good pictures and some I could not have gotten before. So I *want* to like everything about this camera. But I can't say that.
