I Forgot To Send It Back

Suzette Foscett, Amazon
6 August 2014
  • Summary: I ordered the camera to take on a trip and when I got home it had stopped working. Battery is good. I got busy and forgot to send it back. Now it's past 30 days. I believe now I'm stuck with an useless lemon.

Expecting New, but got used/opened

Mike, Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: The camera I bought was supposed to be new, but the packaging of the box clearly showed it had been opened and taped over several times including both masking tape and clear packaging tape. The box had some damage to it and looked to be smashed. The mailing envelope was padded with some bubble wrap, but the box was loosely positioned in there and offered almost no buffer to collapse. I didn't open the camera box, and am expecting a full refund.

Lumix failed to deliver

K M "Homeland", Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: I will express here much dissatisfaction from this DMC-FH5 Panasonic Lumix and also from my other Lumix, the FZ40. Both I bought on Amazon. Both failed to do the job they were build to do.

Black spots in all images after a few months, warranty a joke!

W. Rothrum, Amazon
20 November 2012
  • Summary: After just a 4-6 months of using the camera there were black spots in images, that got bigger with zoom. Likely dust on an inner lens due to an ineffective seal, they'd move around sometimes. Amazon wouldn't replace it and gave me contact info for Panasonic. After spending copious time on hold and completing a warranty return, I sent the camera back. A few weeks later I received a replacement, to my surprise that is an FH6 and NOT the FH5 that I sent them.

Grainy photos, I'm sending it back :(

Paula fitz, Amazon
10 June 2011
  • Summary: I ordered this camera from a big box store after reading all the reviews here on Amazon. I'm disappointed that the 16mp do not come close to the 10mp Norcent camera I had prior to this one. I've only had this model a few days and I am not happy with how grainy the pictures come out. When blowing up a photo, you'd think 16mp would keep the image crisp and sharp, not so with this camera. Everything had a bad grainy appearance to it, and I did try many different settings.
