Summary: I love my first Lumix, the FZ10, so the comparison is against that. I bought the FS7 for my wife to use, and when I need something 'pocket-size.' The FS7 takes great pictures in auto mode. The image stabilization is better than I expected.
Summary: This camera takes great pics for its size, and it's SO cute. The color is absolutely beautiful, and it is very durable and well-built. Use is easy and very intuitive for the average person, but it still has a lot of fun functions to play around with.
Gives Canon a Run for the Money. Some Compromises in Exposure
17 August 2010
Summary: After my overwhelmingly positive experiences of owning Canon PowerShots (SD700 and SD800), I was was pretty sure I wanted another. I looked at three: SD1200: only 3x zoom, 35mm not wide enough SD980: 24mm wide, f/2.8, 5x zoom, touch screen. Wow! But no thanks to focus problems.
Summary: I had the older version of this that just one day gave up, it worked very hard, so it was no surprise. Looking for something equal and priced the same didnt happen in any of the stores. between the price, the features and the lens , this is a SUPER deal!
Summary: This is only my initial review since I have only lived with the camera for about 2 days. Lets start out with the background. I am a professional photographer with a couple big boy DSLR's (NIKON D200 and D300s)so I know my way around a camera. The GOODS 1) Drop dead easy to use.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace an Olympus pocket digital camera that broke when I dropped it. Now I tell friends I'm glad that it broke! This is a super little camera that takes high resolution shots. Its easy to set up and use.
Summary: This a very good portable camera for day time photography. Built in flash is not that powerful. Photos are in natural colors. Sharpness and contrast are really good too. I'm a happy buyer...if you are looking for portable camera this is a good choice with good battery life.
Summary: I bought this camera for my wife for her bday. She loves it, and I like it also (im usually the one caring it). It is very thin, gets great pics, and is very easy to use. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because it does not zoom very much.
