I wasn't very impressed
4 September 2007
Summary: This died on me at just about the 3 month mark. I was taking pictures with it one morning and then hours later went to turn it on and nothing. Even before that I was kind of upset with myself for giving in and buying it because for the price, it's not really great quality. The noise is far above what is acceptable to me. I understand most cameras will have noise troubles in low light settings, but even in bright sunlight my pictures were not crisp.
Summary: I bought this camera a while ago mostly because I heard it was decent for recording video. What I found was that the video picture is fine but the audio has major noise problems. The microphone has so much noise that it is basically worthless as a video recorder. I didn't expect anything fantastic, but I have a fairly old/cheap casio exilim that records much better audio. The camera takes decent still shots but don't plan on recording any kind of audio.
Excerpt: "Overall this is a very good camera, it is relatively easy to use and you can navigate your way around it using the wheel at the top. It looks good, feels good and its a great tool for taking photos. However for my personal tastes is this model dissapointing. I don't like the zoom fuction and how it is operated, to zoom with this camera, you dhave to turn a notch on a wheel, something that i find very annoying, it is designed that way in order to siplify ...
Pros: looks good, does the job and large LCD display
Cons: Picture quality disappointing, very expensive for what it is
Nach drei Jahren Schrott, bis dahin gute Aufnahmen

Summary: Meine alte Ricoh Caplio hatte ausgedient, das Batteriefach war kaputt und mit ihrem Plastikgehäuse war nichts mehr anzufangen. Sie hat gute Dienste geleistet und wird nun als Notkamera ihren Lebensabend geniessen.. ;-) Kurz vorm Urlaub musste dann neue Kamera her, mit der ich auch Tonvideos machen wollte. Meine Wahl fiel, nach Studium diverser Berichte und Tests, auf die Lumix F07, da sie ein Weitwinkel und ein Metallgehäuse hatte und Tonvideos aufnehmen konnte.
