Problem with shutter!

Sarah S Pouzet, Amazon
16 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought my Lumix in March and started to use it at the end of May when I went on a trip. It was working fine for 2 weeks. I then used it again in June when I went on my 2nd trip and this is when I started to have issues with the shutter. One day while taking photos, the shutter just froze, it seemed to be stuck for a couple of seconds so I couldn't take pictures. I had to turn the camera off and on again. After that it worked again but it is now slower.

  • Excerpt: A very fun camera that does many things well...but out of the box the jpegs are unuseable and the colors are drab. Very disappointed after a great review by dpreview.

Great Zoom, OK RAW, VERY poor JPEG.

Shadow "Shadow", Amazon
8 September 2012
  • Summary: In general, the camera is O.K. for the price, especially with the 600mm f/2.8 zoom which is an engineering milestone. It is small and very usable. However, the in-camera JPEG engine is worthless. It is VERY noisy with JPEG. I have to shoot them in RAW, and get that converted using Lightroom 4.2 RC. At the end, I use the camera to take photos, but the photos came out just OK with too much noise and lack of details.

Cant say its value for money..

  • Summary: I have this camera for a good 5 months now.. and I can say that its not what I paid 34k for.. Looking at the specifications I had very high hopes, and I am sorry to say but they were crushed :) Though its a very compact and a nice camera, my grudge is with the time it takes to Focus on the objects..

Fred, Amazon
13 December 2012
  • Summary: Appareil donné comme excellent d'après les tests En réalité il n'en est rien je lui donne juste la moyenne Prise en main assez aisée, menu intuitifs Rendu des photos juste moyen Mode panorama affreux !!! tellement c'est lissé Très nombreux réglages Bonne vidéo HD Un câble usb plus long serait bien utile !!!

Dans la ligne des FZ

Grive000, priceminister.com
13 December 2012
  • Excerpt: F2,8 constant ne suffit pas. Un hybride ou un réflex ira peut être moins loin en Zoom mais la qualité des photos sera supérieur, surtout à ce prix là on sent le capteur cmos encore mal géré et la gamme FZ a fait beaucoup mieux ne serais ce qu'en CCD . En plus en basse lumière la montée enIso est inévitable vue la taille du Zoom.

Grosse déception

Jean-Claude P., DIGIT-PHOTO
28 September 2012
  • Summary: Digit Photo toujours sans reproche mais une note très mauvaise pour Panasonic : - Pas de documentation (pour un produit de ce prix), une disponible sur CD mais donc pas facile à emmener avec soi, une profusion de gadget mal expliqué dans la documentation. - Le retour à la maison fut ma plus grande déception, le format RAW de Panasonic n'est reconnu par aucun logiciel donc format inexploitable, c'est dommage car j'avais choisi ce produit parce qu'il supportait ce format.
