Summary: Many reviewers on amazon.com and other sites seem to not like the touchscreen. I LOVE the touchscreen interface. It is easy and very fast! I never want to use a pocket camera with buttons and switches again! This camera has many settings—almost too many. However, the basic settings are easy to access. A nice feature is the ability to drag two of your favorite settings (shortcuts) to the main screen so they are literally at your fingertip.
Summary: Hello!!! Has received camera Lumix DMC-FH27 delivery to Russia 17.01.2012. With quality it is happy!

Summary: After our pseudo-SLR died, I decided I wanted a very smart P&S that I could carry in my purse. After two weeks of daily use, I am very fond of this camera. It took a little while and some quality time with the PDF version of the manual to even begin to figure out what it was doing... the contextual settings can be pretty confusing. Now that I've got it set up the way I want, I'm quite happy.
Summary: We took our new camera on a trip to Maui and it worked very well. The only exception was on a sunset cruise, when the battery ran out and I missed many good photo opportunities. I'm still adjusting to the camera, but so far I'm liking it.
Good for the casual photographer with a bent for gizmos!

Summary: I've owned a Lumix (DMC-ZS5) before and have been very satisfied with it. I bought this for my sister, though I did use it initially to test it out and I'm just as satisfied with the picture quality. It's nicely compact, well built and fairly good looking camera (black and silver looks conservative while the other ones look funkier!) Boot time is really really fast and so is the time it takes to capture a picture.
I found an OEM battery that works with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH27

Summary: I bought my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH27 camera in May 2011. I love this camera given the low price point. It does have a few things that could use some improvement. However, the biggest beef is the battery life. Like most of the reviewers here, I did have problem with the battery not lasting long enough for the day (ran out of juice after less than 200 shots).
