A solid, simple camera.

Summary: This thing is so compact that you forget you have it. Picture quality is good, but I'd rather see fewer megapixels and greater ISO sensitivity. That said, it's a point and shoot camera, and most of the time you'll get good pictures. I like cameras that let me adjust shutter and aperture manually, and this camera doesn't. However, the scene modes let you have a greater degree of control over camera settings than the regular Program mode.
Nice, compact, well built, good overall performance

Summary: The Panasonic FH2 is affordable, has a nice design, EZ to navigate system and slips in any pocket or purse. This camera does not offer HDMI output to TV but does have AV connection as well as PC -USB cord. Does not re-charge from the USB cable however. So there are affordable plug-in chargers inexpensively you can obtain. Screen is small, but high quality 2.5 LCD screen.
Summary: Bought this product for my dad who isnt very tech savvy at all and who was going overseas on a vacation particularly because of the easy to use reviews. He was able to take many pics and videos fairly easily and loved it. He lost the charger and battery and its been a bit of a challenge to find replacements on amazon.
Summary: Wonderful camera. Great pics and the stabilizer thing actually works. It so cute and small. Bought it as a gift for my sister and she absolutely loves it. The great test will come when we go on vacation :) We'll see if it can hold up to the debacle.
Great pictures, portability... not so sure about the battery.

Summary: I'm no photographer. Never taken a class. Never owned a particularly expensive camera. But everyone needs a point-and-shoot even in this age of cell phone cameras. For years I've been a Canon Powershot user. My second is still in good working order and in spite of its bulk I will continue using it. I was really excited, however, to give the Panasonic Lumix a try. It has lots of features my old Powershot just doesn't have and double the MP.
Summary: I am by no means a professional photographer or even an enthusiast--I just like to take pictures of my family and places we have been to capture our time together, at home and on vacation. This is the perfect camera for that job. The picture quality is excellent, whether taking closeups or views from the top of a mountain. At first, I stuck with the basic modes, and then started to discover some really great features.
Summary: OMG! Finally a camera that takes a perfect picture every time! This camera is compact, easy to use, lightweight with great picture quality. This is one of the few Amazon Vine Program products that I would actually purchase with my very own money. I would highly recommend it. Thank you Amazon Vine.
Summary: For such a small point and shoot, this camera is wonderful It is extremely easy to use and the picture quality is stunning. It is a 14MP camera, but it has the option to take widescreen 16:9 photos at 10.1MP. It has built in presets that you can use, but the automatic setting does a great job so I didn't feel the need to use the specialized settings. The camera is incredibly light and easily fits into a pocket or purse.
Summary: This is one of those digital cameras where you find yourself thinking that it is ok ... For the price. On a plus side it is a pretty good form factor, small enough to carry, big enough to use. I personally dislike not having a traditional viewfinder but this seems to be coming more common place. I expected terrible shutter lag but was pleasantly surprised. The zoom is also quick and provides a decent range.
