Excerpt: I saw some people hating on this little camera and I wanted to add my two cents. I own a rental house and have many Canon DSLR's, Nikon DSLR's, High End glass, expensive video cameras like the C-300, FS&, F-800 and such. I like to shoot stills with the Canon 5D Mark III, but it is heavy.
Excerpt: I owned fz100 for few years, used it where ever we treveled and at home as well. Its not very good for low lihgt situations, produces noisy pictures and noise reduction feature does not looks improve it too mach ..
Excerpt: Its a very light and conenient for travelling if you dont want to lug around 600+grs of toysaround you days and weeks. Pretty sharp images and fastAF since the lens are made from legendary LEICA.
Excerpt: This is my third Lumix and I've extremely happy with the FZ100. I bought my first Lumix (FZ20) in 2005 and almost wore it out over 3 years. Late in 2008 I lashed out and bought the Olympus E-520 with extra lenses and remote flash.
Summary: This camera reads wonderfully on paper. Tons of features, unbelievable zoom range. I am also a die-hard Lumix P&S user and Nikon pro gear shooter. I own the Lumix FX01, TZ3, ZS7, two TS2's and a TS3.
Excerpt: This is the 3d Panasonic Lumix that I've owned. I keep trading up because they've continued to upgrade the product. This one has a feature that my other 2 did not have. It has a swivel rear screen whose light intensity can be adjusted to fit the shooting conditions.
Summary: This is a great camera. I have had it for a few weeks now and am completely satisfied. Just by chance, the day I recieved my camera, I had been invited to an Indian birthday party. So I took my camera and my Canon Rebel XSI DSLR along with me.
Summary: I wanted to replace my Kodak Z812IS that I bought 4 years ago with a better camera. Out of the box the 'auto' picture comparison of the 2 almost got it sent back. A little web research and a switch to P mode and a few changes to the setting and things are great.
Pros: Very adjustable. Raw pics are a great feature. Zoom zoom zoom. I like that I have to engage the flash manually as I change modes etc so I don't get an unexpected flash whenI'm shooting wildlife etc. The movie modes are really great.
Cons: The auto mode does not show the best this camera can do. Noisy pics on auto. Digital zoom is worthless as usual, best to turn iit off so you don't accidentally zoom out to far and wreck a fairly good shot. Extra batteries are back ordered till the year 2022.
Summary: Thia was my first venture away from the compact point-and-shoot, and I'm really glad I did this. The images look so great, and the features are convenient. While it's also considerably larger than any of my previous cameras, I've gone on a few long walks through the woods carrying it without ever...
