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. I have been very pleased with the clarity of the photos and the abundance of features.
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.
Excerpt: Build quality. 9/10 Ease of use. 10/10 Image quality. 9.5/10 Camera snob appeal. 0/10 Just look at real peoples reviews on Amazon. Really a very, very good piece of electronic equipment. I really like this camera.
Summary: I've owned this camera for a little over a month now, and I am very pleased with this product. Overall, the pictures are crisp, sharp, and color true to nature with the amazing Leica lens. This camera has a lot of options that allows it to be a simple point and shoot under IA control, but also allows some room for creativity for the beginner hobbyist with its manual options. The long zoom range provides a lot of flexibility and is great if you plan to use it on travel.
Summary: Purchased for my teenage daughter. This is the model before the FZ60 came out which added HDR, CMOS sensor, faster continuous shooting, other s/w features. Decided to get this one when the price went down. We where looking for a super-zoom camera that was lightweight and takes great pictures. This camera fit the bill. This camera (and the FZ60) in my opinion is a great alternative to the Canon and Nikon super-zoom/bridge cameras.
Summary: In my search for a Megazoom I first bought a Canon and returned it the next day highly disappointed. I then found the Panasonic Lumix and am very pleased. The camera is much faster than anything else in its price range and some in a high range. The zoom is very good and the features are easy to use. It's on par with the Canon's picture quality, but the speed really enable me to capture the kids and dogs in their frenzy.
Summary: It took me almost one week to figure out which brand of camera is the best in terms of reasonable price (for those in a limited budget like me), easy operation, high quality taken-photos and recorded-videos, long life battery, powered by Lithium battery or AA ones, zoom, etc. Although I am not professional, I relatively master in using and operating camera.
