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 bought this camera because it is portable and I can carry it at all times with me. I use it to always have the ability to take pictures of stuff I want to remember. I've been using it for 8 months now. Pros: -Fits easily in my pocket -Has a very decent battery life -Has a definitely good enough picture resolution for me Cons: -I had to return it because it got dust in the sensor (you could see dust in the pictures).
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: 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: Compared to my old 6 MP Canon, this camera takes noticeably better photos. Its flash doesn't wash out photos too much, but it's very very good at taking low-light photos, and I almost never need to use the flash. Image stabilization is really useful when taking heavily-zoomed or low-light photos. Its wide-angle (fully zoomed-out) is wider than most cameras of this class.
Summary: I personally like Panasonic cameras. This camera is also a good product. It is small and looks nice. I noticed that it doesn’t have a traditional switch of camera regimes. But if you never had Panasonic cameras before, you will don’t have to care about that. For less than $150 you will get a nice 12 megapixel camera with famous Leica lens.
Summary: This is a great little camera with easy to locate features. This camera sees the light and gives a perfect exposure in many low light situations. Great for scenic photography. Beautiful exposures. Has many scene modes - night-portrait-sports-macro, etc. I think around 12 different scene modes. It also has easy ev adjustments. This is a super little camera for the money. I haven't dropped mine, so I have nothing to say that's negative.
