Great little camera for the price.
14 July 2012
Summary: I bought this camera to take on a trip. We were going sailing in the Virgin Islands on a small catamaran and space was limited. I didn't want to take my much bigger and more expensive camera equipment. This camera worked nicely and was very convenient to carry around. It's two biggest drawbacks were that it was sometimes very slow to focus and there is no raw mode available. The jpeg files have a limited dynamic range which is fairly normal for a camera of this type.
Summary: I got this as a present for a friend, because I have the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX150 and like it. My camera cost over $100 more than this one, but it came out sooner. Both take great pictures, but mine is a bit better. Still, for the price, this is one fantastic little camera, and my friend was very happy with it.
Summary: I purchased this camera towards the end of last year. I wanted a good all around everyday use pocket camera. Pros * Small and portable * Sturdy build * Easy to use * Easy to use menu system. * Decent daytime pictures Cons / wishes * Wish the lens would go a little wider. * Terrible in low light and I noticed lots of noise * Weak flash. However, good enough for up-close portraits. * Some shutter lag Overall for the money I think it's a great buy.
Summary: Able to buy in silver which was unavailable in local outlets. This is an improved model over prior Lumix cameras. shutter lag is much quicker. picture quality is vey good with a wider angle lens for better party shots. also good for real estate photos. would buy again.
Summary: It's a good camera takes great pictures the only thing i dislike is the switch button to change the camera mode to review pictures mode, it looks it can be damaged with the time, a push button can work better
Summary: Likes: Good clarity, auto focus, related indicators and associated light. Instructions are hard-printed rather than on a CD. Excellent apparent overall quality , fit and finish. Nice leather carrying case. I decided to buy it due to the Leica zoom lens which came with it. Dislikes: Camera apparently has a "smart function" which precludes the use of non Panasonic branded replacement batteries-this greatly adds to operating costs.
Summary: I got this camera for my wife for Christmas based on the many reviews I'd read from both individuals and various professional review sources. We've only used it a few times but so far it has worked great. We went to a hockey game and the pictures there turned out to be well lit and not yellowy like some taken with no flash. I really like the various modes that I've used but there are still many to be explored.
Summary: This is a great camera.Very good quality for a digital,not as good of course as those huge chunky ones, but if you don't want to lug one of those around with you all day i highly recommend it.Worth the money, especially the Amazon prices.It takes very good pictures.
Summary: This is a good camera to carry around, not to big or expensive that you worry about it on vacations. Takes good pictures, my wife complains that the zoom could be better. I did manage to take pictures of everybody a few too many times on Thanksgiving, hope they invite me back for Christmas.
