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: 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: It's a nice small pocket camera which is what I was looking for. Takes pretty good pictures. As for some people's complaints that it doesn't have any filter features, that doesn't matter to me. I've got really good editing software on my computer.
Cute camera takes great pics, when it works properly

Summary: This camera is the perfect size and had really great reviews on consumer reports so I bought one off ebay. An open box model. Unfortunately this particular camera has issues. The lens will not retract back into the camera and continuously displays the same message on the screen 'turn the camera off...
Summary: This is a real nice camera for the price, but the wifi, which is the reason I got it, was kind of a pain to set up. There is a button for a wifi "wizard," which should make things easier, but it didn't.
Summary: Nice little pocket camera that you can take anywhere. Better than a phone camera. But put it in your pocket and eventually dust will migrate to the sensor - all your shots will have fuzzy black dots on them
