Summary: I like this camera, it's easy but there is a real delay between pushing the shutter to take the picture and the actual shot. I also think that the pressure to activate the shutter is too much, so if you're not aware, you can get a blurred phto. I have taken some great shots with this camera, though and continue to use it. A good starter camera.
Summary: This was offered below a hundred dollars for a while and it's a steal at that price. It was one of the few pocket cams that offered an F2.8 lens and a 28mm wide angle in that price range. I find the zoom button aggravating, starts slow and then goes too fast, but I will probably develop a better knack for it soon. I bought this on a trip, and had no time to practice. I consider myself a serious amateur, and I was able to work most important settings within a few minutes.
Summary: I bought this item as a gift, I had to return the first one because it stopped working. I contacted Amazon and after a 5 minute conversation they sent out a new one. Awesome product and customer service.
Summary: I bought this for my wife as an alternative to her digital SLR. For under the $100 range this camera is great! The flash does a great job as long as you're at least 4 feet or so from the subject. It does take some getting used to the settings and which ones to use, but they work really well. My biggest reason for choosing this over many others is that the digital stabilization is optical instead of digital. This makes a big difference, especially when zooming a long way.
Summary: I bought the DMC-FH1 as a Christmas gift for my wife to use for pics of the kids and around the house. This camera certainly won't replace my dSLR (D40x/D70) but it does well with well-lit scenes. Movie mode isn't anything to write home about without bright lighting and has given me some errors on playback with corrupted files. I haven't had a chance to rule out my SD card from causing those, a faster card may complete the files faster and have better luck.
Summary: Received product from Amazon quickly and looked forward to testing it out before an upcoming vacation. After charging the battery, reading the manual, formatting some SDHC cards, and playing around with the modes and menus, I tried it out. As the title says, I immediately received either "system error (zoom)" or "please turn camera off and on again" errors when I atempted to zoom (just out of the box so no drops or sand, etc.).
"Point and shoot compact camera for small budget man."

Pros: I like its HD movie feature and its pretty high quality. Its lumix lens clearity is also cool.Various scene modes and its intelligent auto mode which automatically detects the scene and it really works.Its macro mode also works fine.5x optical zoom.
Cons: Cannot zoom when taking motion pictures.Not clear at its max optical zoom limit.No usb charging.(nikon s3000 has usb charging).no other cons found still untill used..(bought 1 month ago).
Summary: good price, good product, good quality and as always good service delivery. The video camera is excellent. The images are also excellent. The price - product is excellent. If you can not buy cameras from U $ 500 this is a good option. Very comfortable and practical thanks to its size. Ideal for the lover of photography without being a professional.
