Summary: My negative review might be misleading. The camera is fine. BUT it's not the one I ordered. It took a long time to get to me, and when it did and I saw it was a silver camera, not the pink I'd ordered, I immediately emailed the company about the problem. What did I hear? Crickets. Lots of crickets. And I still haven't heard anything, one month later. They clearly don't give a darn.
Summary: Excellent camera for the price. Easy to carry around and pocketable. Pictures are great and it is easy to transfer the pictures to your computer. The only thing I wish was different was that there was a viewfinder where you can take pictures easier in bright daylight. Great camera to carry around for the "grab it now" pictures.
Summary: I got this for my daughter for Christmas as she was asking for a real camera. She's only 5 so I didn't want to get anything too expensive but wanted it to be decent. I have a different Panasonic Lumix (from costco) that I absolutely love so was hoping for the same quality. Unfortunately, this is a much cheaper, lower quality camera. The pictures aren't great quality and there is a huge lag time between shots.
Summary: This is my fifth Panasonic camera and the price and size were right. However as with all of my Panasonic cameras, the dust seal between the lens and sensor is poor and I started getting dust specs inside pretty quick. I've gotten quite good at taking apart these cameras and cleaning the sensors but I shouldn't have to do that after 3 months. I also noticed that the quality wasn't as good as previous Panasonics but again, the price was pretty low.
Summary: Wao!!! This is a little monter!! I like to walk and take thousands in a single day, and after a couple of hours, a Lumix ZS-15 is heavy! this will fit perfectly in your hands and/or pockets. I HOPE not to get dust inside the lens!!
