Summary: Update: Panasonic CS called me wanting to correct the mistake and replace the Pink camera for a Black model. I must credit them for stepping up. I had already purchased a new camera and the Pink model is already planned as a gift. Very Poor Warranty Return/Exchange Policy I am looking to replace a DMC-FH3 with another model. But hesitant to purchase another Panasonic camera after my recent exchange experience.
Summary: Very convenient shirt-pocket camera that produces pleasing images. Versatile and plenty of features for such a small package. Good enough to substitute for a Super Zoom on a casual day trip. Bought the camera while on vacation in the Caribbean, and never pulled out the D-SLR again. Good video, not bad indoors and in low light, and nice iA feature for immediate situations. Would like a bit more than the 5x zoom, but otherwise would buy it again.
Summary: I needed a good knock around camera to take with me for just snapping pics and to keep in my bag. This fits the bill perfectly. good zoom range, fast lens for low light shooting, fast response and can take rapid shots. This ia a good little camera! The images are clean and crisp and at 14 MP I can blow them up to a decent size.
Excerpt: Great pocket P&S - especially when deeply discounted. Excellent outdoor photos, especially macro mode that can make pleasing photos up to 16x10. Noise increases exponentially above ISO 400 but usable for 4x6 prints. Fairly typical of this class of camera. Flash has narrow focus when shooting wide-open close to your subjects. Some barrel distortion at widest setting (28mm); seems to decrease about 35mm. Limited settings - but you buy it for P&S simplicity.
Summary: I bought this camera in April 2010 after doing a fair bit of research into the quality of pictues for cameras of this price range. I was told Panasonic do the better type of lenses too. I have had no problems with this camera at all, though I do not do much with it other than holiday and kid snaps.
Summary: Nice little camera. Very easy set up and first class results so far.No problem uploading to PC. Great screen with clear image. Only used on auto so far but as a novice this is the only setting I need. The Li-on battery pack far better than the AAA batteries in my old Olympus.
