Summary: I did research this brand and model before final purchase. I used it for about 2 months and camera started to act out and finally stopped working all together. If I did not have warranty, I would have lost $190! However, Panasonic shipped me two different models which did not meet my expectations.
Summary: I bought the Panasonic DMC-FP3 for travel and general use. I wanted decent photos under varying conditions, nothing professional or fussy, and easy to use and carry. I wrote a glowing review when I first got it. I've now used it for two years, and I don't like it.
Summary: I used this camera for a while before reviewing to make sure that my review was valid. This camera captures good quality videos and pictures and has good audio also. Unfortunately there are way too many complex features to operate in retrieving pictures, storing or even selecting the appropriate...
Summary: Cons: Image quality is not so good and the indoor IQ is a disaster... Low light and High ISO produces terrible noises. Even ISO 400 looks blur. In addition, the white balance is not accurate and don't trust what you see on the LCD screen. Pros: Nice design and perfect size.
Summary: Great looking camera, small and sleek. But I was so dissapointed with the pictures that had to return it. Indoors pictures, forget about it, blurry, fuzzy and weird colors, outdoor pictures ok, as long and they they are taken while on daylight.
Summary: I feel like I bought a different camera than most of these reviews talk about - because this one really sucks! After reading all the great reviews I bought this and was totally disappointed. I passed on the Nikon FinePix because it didn't have an HD Video mode which this does.
Summary: I have owned this camera for about 6 months now. The only reason we got it was because it was on sale, and honestly, I wish we would have waited and done more research. Here's why: 1) The biggest annoyance is that the lack of options to manually configure the camera the way you want it.
Quality camera let down by terrible interface and poor features

Summary: After a glowing review on Cameras.co.uk, I ordered the Panasonic DMC FP3 fully hoping for something that was at least a match for my old camera, a Casio Exilim. Within 30 minutes of trying out this item though, I'd printed out a refund slip and repacked it for prompt return via DHL.
