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. It takes great pictures - each to use - zooms great and has a BIG screen on the back for viewing pics. Love it.
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. She tried this one and was amazed at the 1. Ease of use to get great photos'. 2. Excellent testimonial by the gifted camera recipient. 3. Compact "self storing" lens, (i.e.
Summary: I had issues with two previous cameras (Sony CyberShot and Nikon CoolPix) The lenses that came out got broken and bent and the camera became obsolete! A drop shouldn't kill the lens. So this camera is great! There is no lens that out, but the camera is great. I have taken wonderful sunset photos among others! I highly recommend it!
Summary: We were completely surprised we got so much bang for the buck. At first I was very sceptical and was about to return the camera because it is true that when you review the photos on the camera's display, that it's like looking through a smoke screen as one reviewer said. But be assured that when you download your photos onto your computer, the photos turn out very nice.
Summary: I am by no means a photographer of any kind. But i'll tell ya. Was almost imposible to take a bad picture. in fact the only pics I don't like the look of... are the ones with my face in them! You won't be disappointed at this price.
Summary: Les recomiendo mucho la compra de ésta camara, es facil de usar, es muy liviana, la pantalla es muy nitida, tiene muchas opciones que puedes utilizar de acuerdo a la ocación cuando se vaya a utilizar, además que a mi me salió en muy buen precio en comparación a otras marcas...Comprenla!!!
Summary: I like the manual operating lens cover. Takes very nice close up shots. 95% of pics I have taken have come out beautiful. The ones that did not I was moving and they were blurry. Fantastic battery life, very pleasant surprise! For the price, I am ecstatic. However, I have only had it for 2 months.
Loved canon pics, but lenses break...this is a good option so far

Summary: We loved the canon powershots until we had a lens failure...then read just how common that is. The panasonic lens is protected and a friend recommended their cameras. So far so good. It's a little less user friendly to get a great shot than the canon, but you can get great shots, you just need to navigate the settings a little. Frankly it's not difficult, just more difficult than the canon we'd become accustomed to. I like this camera a lot...it had butter not break!
