Summary: got this for Christmas and was great. very sleek and takes beautiful pictures. its kind of unusually light (like a plastic toy) which scared me in the beginning. the only thing is, you got to keep the camera warm as it gets stuck when its too cold.
Excerpt: This opinion is on FS4. This camera is almost good for my mother in law. I did not try the A480 but I have the feeling it is a better camera. I have chosen this one over A480 for its wide filming format. Problems: 1. Cannot set White Balance (bug?).
Summary: Not going into too much detail but great all round camera. Great size wise as not bulky when taking around with you or for holidays as it fits nicely into the pockets and top breast pocket for a man. Easy to use as very straight forward. Great pics and video. Nothing to lose if you purchase one
The entry level camera in the Lumix family is no poor relation.

Excerpt: After four years of hard use my old compact digital camera died. Although I also own a dSLR camera there are times when you don't want to lug a big camera and lenses around, so the search for a small camera to compliment the SLR began.
Pros: Build quality, range of useful features, ease of use, price, flash
Summary: La panasonic Lumix es una cámara de fotos muy aceptable para un público que no espere retocar fotografías con ella. No es una cámara fotográfica profesional, pero sí que hace muy buenas fotos para tratarse de una digital.
