Simple to use, takes good photos but beware of the RED color choice

Summary: I'm a long-time fan of Panasonic cameras, my first being a TZ4 from 2008. The FH-8 is one of the simplest cameras I've ever come across, including brands other than Panasonic. The screen is bright and easy to see, the photos are sharp and true-to-color, and the menus are so easy to navigate, I bet anyone could use this camera. If in doubt, just push Mode and put it on iA.
Yet slimmer, yet lighter, yet cheaper... I love Lumix!

Summary: This is my 4th Panasonic Lumix camera in a row. Nine years ago I bought the Lumix LZ5SE, which I loved and used until I lost it at a concert. I then bought the Lumix TZ-5, which was smaller, better and cheaper than the previous one, and I equally loved it. Eventually that camera got damaged during a trip (my own fault). Next I bought the Lumix ZS-8, which I again loved and I used the camera a LOT.
Summary: I have not used the camera a lot yet but have down loaded the manual so that I can look at what I need to when I need it! We are going on a trip to the southwest this winter and I am hoping for good luck with the Lumix. I Hope to use the panorama feature at the Grand Canyon! I purchased this model because Consumer Reports gave it a good rating. It seems simple to use and from what I have seen, the photos look great.
Summary: I love this camera. Originally I wanted one with greater magnification, but this one has allowed me to "film" Hummingbirds at a feeder, Belly dancers in a dark theater, and to take the best portrait photos of family members ever. If you have a nice big heavy SLR that you keep leaving at the hotel because it takes over your life on vacations, buy this.
Summary: Camera is fine, but they don't tell you that the camera can only take about 10 pictures. You have to buy a memory card if you want more pictures. I was very disappointed when on vacation, I could only take about 9 pictures. It was of little use. I have ordered a memory card, but I would have ordered it with the camera had I known.
Summary: Light weight and excellent photos and easy to use. Excellent wide angle lens and very compact and fast speed and pocket use. Should have come with a case, used previous Samsung case and memory card.
