Summary: We purchased this camera after having our first child. We live in WASHINGTON STATE where sunshine is usually limited and we need to use a flash indoors for all photos. This camera has a design flaw that leaves a dark shadow on every picture from the lens. It is unnaceptable panasonic!! This should be fixed. If you are onl,y using this camera outdoors when no flash is needed it does take great pictures. But I would NOT recommend for indoor use.
Pros: Easy to use, Durable
Cons: Did not meet expectations, Poor documentation, Poor quality, dark shadow on pictures when using the flash
Summary: bought this camera for christmas as well as vacation where a lot of natural photography is involved. Found functions not easy to understand.and use Instructions are not clear. some pictures come out grainy and out of focus and strangely, some came out black and white!! for price it needs better instructions, and these quirks addressed. I am going to call Panasonic help desk for addressing these problems.
Cons: Expensive, Did not meet expectations, instructions too complicated difficult to follow, picture quality not the best, for price paid it is an okay camera
