Summary: My second Lumix camera.
It is a great compact camera and lives up to the Panasonic standard.
I just love this camera.
After reading a lot of reviews I can not understand some of the petty criticisms.
Summary: I'm still getting to grips with the menus but it takes great photos. It's definitely bigger than the smallest Canons, so if you want a really compact camera, they might be better. Good looking camera.
Summary: I use a DSLR when I want great photos, and a "snapper" when pocket-size portability for travel and for fun are more important. My excellent, old Casio "snapper" was 2-1/2 years old, without image stabilization like my DSLR, so it was time for a new one.
Summary: I had lots of cameras and i did not like this one.
the pics come out fussy almost of the time
its not so small
the battery does not last .
I own the panasonic fx9 and its much better then this one
and the pics are much nicer.
Summary: Before you get into this, please note that the 4 stars above should really be 3 and a half. I bought this camera as a replacement for my Casio Exilim EX-Z750, which was damaged by sand. I did a lot of research, and was almost set to buy the Canon SD870 IS, largely for the wide angle.
Excerpt: We used to have digital camera a few years ago but it sadly got broke after my clumsy husband dropped it on the floor. Then with the introduction of smart phones and us using our camera phones to take pictures we never found the need to replace.
Pros: Easy to use, good picture quality, easy enough to navigate around and use the menu
Cons: Perhaps could be a little bit more weightly, does feel a little flimsy
Summary: Good pictures for the price range and Panasonic quality is unbeatable. Typical Panasonic it's not AA batteries so don't forget recharger. This is the only slight down fall but wouldn't let that stop you from buying!
