Summary: I have purchased 2 of these cameras based on the fact that they had a WiFi remote capability I use these cameras daily for inspection work and the first one got "dark smudges" on the photo receptor. ALL of my photos have 3 "little gray clouds" that appear on the jpeg images.
Excerpt: Panasonic Lumix DMC-SZ5 I have had this product for just about a week now, and having paid less than a hundred dollars for it at Staples Business Depot, I am very impressed with the amount of features this camera has for such a cheap price.
Summary: This camera is no longer made by Panasonic. The shutter would no longer open after about 35 days of ownership. Had to jump through hoops, but finally got this replaced under warranty with a newer model.
Summary: The 1800 number was of no help. I could successfully set up the app to use WiFi for the Samsung Galaxy (so I DO know how to correctly get this to work on a phone), but when using the same app for iPhone, it simply will not work - it gets "hung up" on the Login screen.
Summary: I have a not quite 2 yr old Lumix DMC-SZ5 with a Panasonic lens. I loved it UNTIL I developed spots on my photos, which apparently are from dust inside . Researching, I found Panasonic seems to have a problem with this but they will do nothing for me.
Summary: The only reason this review has one star is because Amazon does not allow no stars!! The camera as a camera, taking pictures and video is awesome, however Panasonic should be ashamed to have included such perfectly awful software.
