Summary: Bought this camera two years ago from Amazon as a present to my wife, for $230 at the time. It was discontinued then, it is still discontinued today. Having said that, it was one of the best cameras out there *for its size*. It is still a great camera today - my wife loves it. The large aperture (f2.8 at the widest angle) improves the performance in low light.
Summary: I need a new camera since my last one broke. I wanted a camera which take picture without delay when I pushed the button. This one is perfect, no delay the picture are quality crisp. It easy to use it, no need to read the owner's manuel, it's open and play. You don't need and extra battery since this one stay on for days and days. Very happy with it.
Summary: I purchased the Panasonic FX37 because I needed to get a good portable camera for a special vacation trip. It has been 6 months since, and I am still absolutely loving this camera. Not only is it very portable, it is very versatile as well: its 25mm wide angle lens is great for landscape and group photos, and its 5X zoom should be sufficient for most occasions. My favorite aspect though is how great the colors come out. They are absolutely stunning.
Summary: Pros: Auto scene mode. A good variety of scene selections. Wide angle lens. Takes very decent pictures indoors and out. 1080i HD video. (NOT true HD 1080p though, but better than 640x480 most other compact cameras have for sure!) Compact size, 2x as thick as an iPhone, but 3/4" shorter & 1/2" narrower! Cons: Can only take video up to a certain size at a time, no matter how big your memory card is. (eg.
Excellent Choice, Does Much More Than 'Point and Shoot'

Summary: I wanted a small, shirt-pocket size camera for travel. I love photography and wanted the best possible quality shots without getting into the size, bulk & general baggage of a DSLR (too bulky, we're talking traveling light here). I thought I'd have to compromise, and did a lot of researching (like others I considered the Canon Cybershot , Nikon, Elph & other products).
Summary: Love this camera . . . have had it for about 3 weeks or so . . . keep it handy for spontaneous shooting in San Francisco, where there are a lot of interesting sights to photograph! The wide-angle lens is truly great; autofocus is a joy to use and is VERY good. Have one complaint . . . could use a view-finder, as is obviously hard to see the screen in bright light. Computer software included is cool, also!
