Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX30 gives you plenty of bang for your buck. It's great for people who don't want to break the bank when trying to capture quality photos. It;s compact, comes with it's own photo software and is so easy to use.
Excerpt: Great camera for a great price. This camera takes great pictures and has a variety of settings to pick from and get even better pictures. Very durable camera, had it in a mud fight, cleaned it up and it worked great! Large screen size makes it nice for viewing pictures! Really like this camera and will get another one when it is time to trade this one in.
Excerpt: My husband gave me my Panasonic Lumix camera for my birthday almost 2 years ago. I have overall been pleased with it. The screen is nice a big so its easy to see to take a picture and also to review pictures. I was pleasantly surprised by the video feature on it. I've made videos that are at least ten minutes long and the picture and audio are a good quality for watching on our tv or posting on the web.
Excerpt: I bought this camera three years ago, and it still works well. It never has a breakdown during this period. It is really easy to use for the beginners. You don't need to have much skill, and you can take clear pictures. Just holding on the top button for a while, the camera will adjust its focus automatically. It have a really convenient function is that you can choose the scene, when you take pictures at different places and weather.

Summary: After having purchased a silly Kodak waterproof, to fill in the gap between my first LUMIX being sent back because the probing lens would not return, yet it advised us to o shut it off to return the lens, they were nice enough to send "it" back. Ninety dollars, and many phone calls to find it (9 months later). there wasn't a "tracker" for them to find it. My name [apparently] was not good enough.
Panasonic makes a very easy to use camera. Recommended

Summary: I researched digital cameras and found the experts loving the Nikon but users saying the Nikon in unnecessarily difficult to operate. I own a Panasonic Lumix and found the user recommendations to be all pluses. I agreed and bought my 91-year old dad and my daughter Panasonic Lumixes. My daughter went to Greece right afterward, left the setting on "intelligent photos" and came back with wonderful pictures.
Summary: This camera is good for the price I got it for. It's easy to use and I love the color! The outside also has a nice rubbery type texture that feels nice and makes it easier to handle. I wouldn't see myself paying over $200 for it since now you can find some nice 10mp cameras for not much more than that. But overall it's a good camera. The video quality on it is also not bad. If you can find it for under $200 I say go for it!
Superb build quality, responsive camera, great lens.

Summary: Build quality on the FX30 is exemplary. This camera is dense, feels hefty for its size when picked up, unlike many similar cameras that feel like a piece of plastic. This is a fine example of Japanese craftsmanship. It is fast and very responsive in operation. The lens is simply fantastic, 28mm (effective) wide angle is rare among such cameras. The lens is sharp edge to edge with very little, if any, in the way of distortion and chromatic aberration.
