Great Camera for the price

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: 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: 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.
Summary: To begin with I'm no camera maven. I'm just a little ole lady that takes hundreds of pics on my travels. I do love ZOOMs and easy menus. That is why after finding Panasonic I have stuck with it. Good quality pictures, and zoom quality very good. I tried out this zoom because many time a zoom will get you close but the edges begin to blur. In my tests I was very pleased with the Zoom and no Zoom of the same scene.
Summary: After checking out various cameras in the class, I went with this Panasonic. My reasons: 1. I loved my old Panasonic. 2. LEICA lenses on a camera in this price range is fantastic. 3. On/Off SWITCH, not a button that can be accidentally hit on or off at the wrong time (like Canon!) 4. The pictures are phenomenal without having to carry a camera case full of interchangeable lenses. 5.
