Summary: If you are a photographer of birds and they are small this is the camera for you. I would say no bridge type digital takes a better picture. In my opinion any zoom over 24x is too difficult to hold still without a tripod and I am on the move while bird hunting The battery life is exceptional.
Summary: This "was" a great camera - but it only lasted about 30 months and then ceased to function, period. Considering it was only used intensively during a three week vacation in 2012, and was only used sporadically after that, I am truly disappointed by its short lifetime.
Summary: I love the Leitz optics. This is my second Panasonic Lumix. I'd give this one a five stars, but for a design flaw that is distracting. As a professional photographer I am a user of Leica cameras and optics. Love them.
Summary: This little camera can stand up to some pretty big canons and nikons too for that matter! The lens is at a 1.8 which allows for you to get some sharp images. The easy settings let you change your styles and effects like a pro without any of the meter measuring, saving you time when shooting.
Summary: This camera is easy to use right out of the box. I took this up to some remote parts of British Columbia and took a variety of close up to far away magnified pictures and they all came out beautifully.
Summary: I have been using point and shoot cameras since my Nikon film camera became obsolete about 10 years ago. I have been considering the purchase of a digital SLR ever since. A friend recommended the Panasonic DMC line of cameras. I have been using this DMC FZ-47 for about a month.
Summary: I left on a trip shortly after purchasing this camera, and didn't have time to actually learn how to use it properly. So I left it on automatic most of the time, and the "intelligent auto" did the work for me. I am very happy with the photos and the camera.
