Summary: It powers up fast. Takes quick shots. The light settings are good. Picture quality is awesome! The HD Video is GREAT! The ONLY downside is that you can zoom while doing video, but thats common on point and shoot HD video.
"Great Point-and-Shoot for a photographer on a budget."

Pros: Huge amount of tools and settings to make your pictures exactly the way you want them, like the scene modes and intelligent auto. The 12 megapixel (4000 x 3000 resolution) lens takes high quality photos, and the video feature is great as well. I also lo
Cons: Full digital zoom (20x) is extremely blurry, but you can always not turn it on.
Summary: I've had this camera since December 2010, when I got it for $89.00. The price has increased recently on Amazon to $199.00. I wonder why? Now I know: It takes better pictures than more expensive cameras that cost double. I've personally compared the FH1 with the Canon SD1300IS (28mm/4x zoom) and the Panasonic DMC-ZR3 (25mm/8x zoom), and to my surprise the FH1 takes better pictures than both of them. The Canon pictures were a little soft and out of focus.
Makes you feel sorry paying so little for something so good

Summary: This camera shows the lengths Panasonic has come in developing digital cameras. What you pay in this case, $89 is too few for such a product. What shocked me at first was the minute size of it. This camera is a keeper. Before purchasing one I was pondering whether or not I'd be able to understand all the myriad buttons & functions cameras come with these days and surprisingly, I fared better than I even expected.
Summary: I bought this camera for my 10 year old son and have been extremely happy with it. It is easy to use and takes clear pictures. Pretty good in low light even. I love that we can plug in the battery to re=charge. No using a bunch of AA batteries. Overall, I highly recommend this camera. (My daughter has a Panasonic also and we have never had any problems with it. I always try to buy the Panasonic brand.
Summary: A good camera for non-digital, senior citizen learners. Manual instructions and software instructions could be a bit more novice friendly. Takes great pictures despite attributes of novice photographers.
Summary: The price was great and am extremely pleased with this camera.........It has all I need in a camera of this type...Easy to work with great pictures. Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH1 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.7-Inch LCD (Black)
