Summary: This was an excellent bargain and it was very quick to arrive. No faults then for speed of delivery and price. However, the equipment arrived in a jiffy bag only and wasn't wrapped in bubble wrap or similar packaging material.
Summary: The camera is great & the 16gb card & extra battery give so much more flexibility they are a must. On the down side the camera case is barely large enough & I wouldn't recommend it for use for this camera

Summary: I have been really pleased with this camera although I am still learning some of the functions. The manual can be downloaded from the Panasonic website and I had no problems locating this. You will need it if you want to get the most from the features on this bridge camera.
Summary: We're liking this camera it's so versitle you can use it as a point and click or if you want to get fancy you can use some of the settings. Could do with a paper copy of the full instructions as they are on disk and if you want to check something while you're out and about you can't.
Summary: Excellent results. Takes a bit of getting used to. Lens cap is very fiddly, so much so that I bought a different very cheap one on Ebay and it works far better than the original. Upgraded to this from an earlier model which I loved. Hope this will be as good (so far it is living up to expectations)
Summary: I have owned two previous Panasonic Lumix compact cameras and both produced excellent results. It is early days yet as I have not been able to use all the functions available and I am still in the early stages of getting to grips with this model.
