A great portable all around camera for family events
7 August 2011
Summary: I have tried several models of these little Lumix cameras and this is the best for battery life,size, and quality of the images. The display is large and easy to see and images can be enlarged to check for crispness of focus. I can carry it in my pocket and "never be without a camera" for important events. The controls are easy to use and the flash is very effective for such a small camera.
One of the prettiest compact cameras ever created!!!

Summary: I've had this camera for a few years along with many other newer cameras, and it's still one of my favorites. First and foremost, it's one of the prettiest cameras ever. Secondly, the pictures come out very clear and detailed. Thirdly, the build quality is second-to-none; very solid and nice. Fourthly, it's easy to use with straight-forward layout. And finally, it's one gorgeous, gorgeous camera! I have a red one, btw.
Summary: I have had this camera since March 2006, and in February 2009 the LCD screen went black, making it unusable. I liked the camera for the most part, but I found that it often produced pictures where the subjects looked unnaturally white. There was also a problem with red eye. I tried to fix these problems by changing the settings, but I didn't really know what I was doing, and the options were not very clear.
Summary: cant believe this little camera does such a great job. i have lots and lots of cameras i this is the winner. i got this really cheap on ebay for my kids and im going to buy it for the whole family ! its fast ! its very colorful pics and sharp! what else you want ! i do recommend this camera.
Summary: I have had this camera for sometime and I have always had good daytime shots, nights shots are inconsistent and with adjustments in many case it is fine. It was one of the first image stablizers and it works the camera is nice and small has a good look and feel and the screen is fine. As for a protector, all of them should come with one period, however, I am always conscious of the screen and thus have virtually no scrathes even with all the use and travel the camera has...
Summary: The high resolution screen is excellent especially when operated in the brightness-boost mode (which I use all the time). The viewing angles for the LCD screen are very good horizontally, but not so good vertically. By this I mean that you can observe the screen from either side without the colors changing much but there are fairly major changes if you tilt the screen towards or away from you. The movie mode is excellent, especially in 30 fps, VGA (640 X 480 pixels).
Summary: Excellent digital camera for the cost. Just about 2 years now and the only problem I've found is that the dial slighly slips between playback and picture taking mode but apart from that the images are excellent. Easy to use menu and the image stabilization works great ... did a firework shot witout a tripod and it came out perfect. I've paid about the same price as it is now about 2 years ago so obviously Panasonic is doing wonders with staying power.
Summary: I bought this camera, the anti shake is good but the auto white balance sucks, i never realized the value of the feature until i got this camera. if you take flash pictures they came out fine but then if you switch to no flash they come out very yellow, and if non flash where good then the flashed photos came out very blue...
