Summary: Found NIB old stock, Went with Black for $90 with free shipping. This is my 3rd one "I damaged 2nd one" June 2014 - dropped it 4 feet to the cement. I was not using safety strap :0( - Worked still, however autofocus and flash is OOC. See my reviews below: February 8, 2014, Recommended!!!!
Summary: I have owned this for 2-3 years. It still works like a charm. Two features really impressed me in addition to the quality of the pictures 1: it can take close up shot, like a macro lens. 2: the quality of the video. A great camera for everyone especially for teenagers or senior folks.

Summary: See my original review bellow: This is my second one of this model, "I broke" my first one in 2011, I was skiing and made the mistake putting in an outside not insulated pocket and the lens motor got frozen=when i turned it on; the screw interface bracket broke.
Summary: I have had this camera for 3 years and it has been just great. The battery/sd card door broke after about 18 months and I just tape it on and it works fine. I owned two Canon point and shoot cameras before this Lumix unit and they both failed me within 2 years.
my favorite walking in place i can get robbed camera ever

Summary: so i bought this together with a lumix lx5. of course it is not a competitor in the quality of the photos of this other amazing camera but is a great camera for packed streets and other dubious places. it survived me for 2 years so far and around 15000 photos.
Summary: I got this as a gift for my birthday after buying one for our daughter. I liked hers so much I asked for one for myself. I like the front panel that slides down and that is what turns the camera on.
Summary: I first bought this camera a while ago as a gift for a work associate. His computer skills and photo knowledge was about zero but did he ever shoot great video and super nice photos! This outperformed a similar class Nikon digital camera that my wife had been using.
