Excerpt: I can't afford to buy a $1000+ fancy DSLR right now, so this is what's I'm rockin' in the mean time. Amazon sells this camera for about $160 (price goes down sometimes though if you watch carefully) and I think it's a great mid-priced point and shoot. It's easily comparable to Canon point and shoots (Canon makes the best point and shoots in my opinion).
Summary: This camera is great with one minor detail, the cord it uses to connect to your PC is not a standard USB cable - the end on the computer end is and fits fine into any computer with USB, the end that goes into the camera is slightly smaller and boxier than a typical cord end (like the one that you would charge a camera with) so I would imagine if I were to lose this cord it would be difficult and costly to replace.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Small / Compact
Summary: I picked up this camera for a few reasons. 1.) So I could have something in my purse for the odd random photo opportunity that tends to come up during the day and 2.) So I wouldn't have to carry my larger nicer camera with me on short vacations or day trips when packing light is a must. So far I am very happy with this product! The picture quality is great, it's easy to use and it's compact and light.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good battery life, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I was looking for a camera that could take great pictures and not break my wallet in the process. After doing a lot of research on point and shoot cameras I came across the Lumix. It has been a wonderful camera and takes great pictures both indoors and outdoors. It allows me to capture still as well as video and is super compact and easy to carry. Highly reccommend!
