Poor quality.

maddylynn, Amazon

  • Summary: I replaced my Panasonic Lumix that I had before, wasn't this model but similar. The quality of this is poor. Pictures were of poor quality and blurry, never clear like some of the comparable cameras out there in this price range. Sent it back.

Panasonic DMC-FH2 - AVOID IT

Barbara Shaw, Amazon
13 October 2012
  • Summary: I bought the Lumix new in Hong Kong. Paid too much, but liked the HD video feature. Trouble is, the video uses up so much battery power you are dead in a few minutes. Boo. Also, the image quality at any light level and any amount of telephoto is seriously disappointing. And up close, focus is always problematic. Yeah, it may have a Leica lens but it can't do much good with it.

Disappointed with low light. What's up with small point and shoots these days?

Michele, Amazon
19 January 2012
  • Summary: After having owned Sony Cybershot point-and-shoots exclusively for the past few years (in addition to a DSLR Canon RebelX) I decided to try a new brand because the current line of small Sony cams are mysteriously way worse in quality than what's come before. I just got this Lumix today and have been fiddling with it in low light situations and it's nowhere near the quality of the older model Cybershots, which created much more sensitive images without the big...

Disappointing x 2

Steve Basile, Amazon
10 December 2011
  • Summary: Within the first ten shots the camera died. Amazon did a product exchange within days. Second camera has serious low light issues. Grainy like a cheap cell phone. Low light is supposedly one of the strengths of this camera. So one of these things is true: 1. another defective unit or 2. the camera really stinks in low light. Either way does not reflect well on Panasonic.

Dust inside lens

Mr S A Payne, Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: Had this camera for 15 months. It is easy to use and impressed with quality of pictures - but, dust seems to have got into the lens which now shows up as spots on images, thus ruining the image. I am not alone with this issue, when you start searching for Panasonic DMC and dust inside lens. No easy, cheap or permanent fix. It cause by the lens zoom which sucks dust in apparently. Dissapointing.

Well documented problem

Dreary Berk, Amazon
9 November 2013
  • Summary: A brilliant little camera, marred by one thing: It is prone to getting dust on the image sensor, which ruins pictures. The problem is well known and documented on the Internet, including a video on YouTube showing how to clean it! Comments suggest it has been a problem on previous models too; yet Panasonic has done nothing to sort this.

Bad build quality

Tobias Funke "ralfwiggum81", Amazon
19 November 2012
  • Summary: Brought this Panasonic camera to replace a lost Canon Ixus which had given me 4 years great service traveling all around the world. What a mistake! The specs of the camera were really good for the money, especially with the Leica lens, and Lumix offered better value for money than Canon, or so I thought. After a few weeks usage and I noticed when I took photos of the blue sky, there were dark marks which were showing on the photos, especially when zoomed in.

Poor Indoor Performance

Siggy, Amazon
30 October 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camera for my teenage daughter after reading various reviews for loads of compact cameras on Amazon. At the time of purchase, all reviews for this one were favourable. The camera looks good, handles well and has some very nice features. But when it comes to the crunch, it's all about the picture quality. Outdoors, the pictures are superb. Colours, exposure, focus are all spot on.
