The package sounds like a great offer but the quality of the products

Theo, Amazon
23 September 2014
  • Summary: I got this camera from this seller because of the total package i.e the camera plus all the other accessories. The package sounds like a great offer but the quality of the products, apart from the camera and the SD card are poor. The bag is low quality with a cheap-like look. The tripod stand is of the Opteka brand and looks and is fragile, the spare battery wouldn't even charge. I haven't not had the chance to use the cleaning products so I cannot comment on it.

I'm disappointed with this camera

GotDesign, B&H Photo
22 April 2014
  • Excerpt: At ISO 400 you get a lot of noise, not even in low light, beside the camera have an artifact that pixilated video footage now and then. This has ruined a lot of family events. Another downside of this camera is that when recording in AVCHD/MTS mode, the footage goes over 3 stop darker. In 1280 x 720p (AVCHD/MP4) the footage is too soft, not sharp enough and the bit rate is way too low compared to other camera that record at the same level.
  • Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Nice Body Color
  • Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Poor Flash, Poor Image Quality

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.

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..

Vaibhav Gokhale, flipkart.com

  • 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..

déçu...

snah, Amazon
3 January 2013
  • Summary: malheureusement très déçu de cet appareil qui s'est montré incapable de gérer les contre-jours - même les plus légers: les parties dans la zone claire étaient complètement brulées (blanchies !). J'ai tout essayé et malgré une bonne connaissance des bridges aucun réglage, même manuel, n'a apporté de solution. J'ai rendu l'appareil et j'ai racheté un Sony HX1 d'occasion, excellent appareil qui ne m'a jamais fait faux bond, même en contre-jour.
