Does what we need it to do
28 October 2011
Summary: This is our second mid-range model Lumix, and I like it even better than our first one. It's small enough that we really use it; it fits into pretty much any pocket and doesn't weigh much. The biggest bonuses are the image stabilization feature and the non-delay between hitting the shutter button and actually taking a picture. We get many more usable pictures because of those two things, and with fewer shots overall.
Summary: I'm totally impressed with this camera. I'm just a point and shoot guy; don't need anything fancy. But my simple needs include no/very small delay between pushing the button and taking a picture, very little pause between taking pictures, a very good zoom, simple controls and fits in my pocket. This camera delivers them all. Particularly impressed that I take very few fuzzy pictures anymore due to the quick shutter.
Summary: I've waiting a couple of months before giving my review, and I am still getting acquainted with the camera. I have not used it for videos, nor have I tried every mode setting. However, I have used it extensively for still photographs, including close-ups, and am very pleased with the ease of use and quality of the photographs. I did have to get a new (inexpensive) card reader, as the built in slot of my older computer would not read the SDHC card.
Summary: *** ALERT: This is NOT a technical review. *** I spent almost a year reading about different point-and-shoot digital cameras. Talked to a few professional photographer friends for their suggestions and input. Had a few cameras on one of my Amazon wishlists for a while before removing them after a couple of months because I didn't feel the same way about them after the time lapse. Tinkered with a few point-and-shoots at every electronics store I found myself in.
Summary: This camera has really impressed me! In the past I had a really old sony cyber shot that work ok but never did a great job has I've always wished. I've seen how Canon Power Shot work, delivering pictures that have great colors and focus very well, with no blur at all. However the price of the Power Shot, when I was comparing cameras, were way higher than this Panasonic lumix. They offered less MP (14 MP and 12 MP vs 16 MP) and just half of the zoom (4x vs 8x).
Summary: This is the best canera that I have ever had for always taking with you. It fits nicely in your pocket. It takes excellent pictures, even when in direct sun light. The extra 10X also takes great looking pictures, not like the old digital zoom. The many settings make it all-in-one camera. So far the included software is easy to use and allows you to edit the "bad" shots so that they look good.
Summary: I honestly really love my camera. I've always bought Casios, but I was getting tired of their really bad flash (washes out people's faces really bad). I didn't want to pay for a Canon and I heard good things about Panasonic Lumix. This camera is great. The picture quality is amazing (not like a professional, but still great for what I want) and the flash doesn't wash anyone out.
Summary: I think this is a great little camera for the price. I was replacing another pocket-sized point and shoot that got bounced one too many times on my bike, and my criteria were size, image quality, and zoom range (especially wide angle, which I'd had on my previous camera). I use a DSLR for "serious" shooting, but the point and shoot in my pocket gets a lot more use than the DSLR in the camera bag at home!
Summary: After my Olympus FE-340 quit working after 3 years (I am still trying to have it repaired), I looked around for a new camera that could take its place as my every day camera. The requirements are for a camera to be small and light enough to fit in my bag with all the other odds and ends, as well have at least 5x optical zoom and a decent picture quality, sensor, start-up/shooting speed and hardware-accessible (not buried in menus) shooting modes.
