Lasted 35 days

JEC, Amazon
14 January 2014
  • 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.

WiFi does NOT WORK for iphone

Mom in NJ, Amazon
13 January 2014
  • 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.

Awful software

Amazon Customer "dlp", Amazon
7 October 2013
  • 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.

BAD Wi-Fi

cylu, Amazon
9 July 2013
  • Summary: Picture quality is definitely good enough for my use. The worse is the Wi-Fi. My set up process was actually pretty smooth, unlike other reviewers. But whenever I connect the camera to my phone or my computer, after a few minutes the camera always completely freezes. I cannot even turn it off.

Panasonic software ruined my customer experience

used to be, Amazon
20 January 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this product from NewEgg (better price) but want to review it on Amazon as well. The specs are great and this may be a great product, but I have lost an entire month and all of my pictures because of the PHOTOfunSTUDIO software that comes with the camera.

DO NOT BUY THIS CAMERA If you are looking to use this Camera for wifi photo transfer or moving shots !!!!!!!!!

tab-el, Amazon
3 December 2013
  • Summary: This is a neat looking camera which takes a good basic picture but there are many better on the market for the same price. The cameras response time is slow so if you want to take a moving picture forget it.

Massive shortfall in performance

kered, Amazon
31 October 2013
  • Summary: The camera as such is reasonable but the facility to use Wi Fi to a TV or pad is pathetic, have also ruined my Sony Vaio computer software after using the cd supplied with the camera to show pictures on my laptop. The software clashed with Picasa which was already on the Sony as standard.
