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.
Summary: bought camera and used for a couple days.. one morning while in mexico got camera out and discovered lcd screen cracked.. read up and found it has happened to owners before.. sent it back to panisonic and got repaired at no cost. has worked fine since..
Summary: I loved the way this camera looked and it's portable size. But I had problems with the flash and/or color in the photos I took at night. My friends and I love to take pictures when we are out on the town. On the night I took some test shots, we had multiple cameras taking the same shot.
Summary: It's true this camera comes with all sorts of bells and whistles, but the bottom line is picture quality. It's 12 MP can't compare with my previous Fuji that's 4 years old with 6 MP. Every picture that comes out of this Panasonic needs to be edited for improved clarity and sharpness.
