Summary: I needed something other than my cell phone to toss in my motorcycle saddlebags that would provide high quality pictures, ease of operation and a reasonably good zoom to suck in distant objects. The Panasonic offer all of those capabilities and more.
Summary: This product is so good...I had the last version of this camara and I decided to bought the new version because I know is an awesome product... you don't need to buy batteries... you only need to charger the battery of the camara.
Summary: I've had my camera exactly a month. Nothing was wrong with it until the today when the zoom kept going out of focus and then a screen telling me to turn the camera off then back on. I did this and it finally said zoom error. It won't work at all now and the 30 days return was up on that day.
Camara was sold as NEW but box had been opened and NO manual
15 March 2010
Summary: I gave this camera 3 stars for the plain fact that the box had been opened and there was no manual in the box. When you pay for a new product is it too much to ask that you recieve an un-opened box.
