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 .. 2.8 apperture + about 1/2 sec shutter, may be with longer shutter delay and tripod it will better , but Im not night-photographer too mach to test it :) Pictures of objects behaind window/net (aquarium/cage) some time good some time its focusing at front...
Summary: Haven't had this camera long, but it fills the niche I was looking for to a tee. Low light pictures could be better, but I knew that before I bought it (have another camera that is super at low light shots). I set the ISO limit at 400 and have had no failure shots since. Macro results have been very good. Sharp detail and good depth of field.
Perfect camera for any type shot or motion picture.

Summary: I bought the FZ100 Lumix to capture close up pics of my jewelry pieces. I have used this camera previously and was quite impressed with it's clarity and enhancement features on very small objects. My purchase did not disappoint! The vendor was true to his word and delivered the product in excellent condition accompanied by additional accessories. This camera is also perfect for action, stills, panoramic and rapid fire photos.
New and improved only means cheaper, less quality and less user friendly

Summary: I loved the FZ 35 and the FZ 50...but there are a few features missing from this camera and I did not research them well enough...First there is no "O" ring for the manual focus..there is manual focus but with a very inconvenient toggle switch instead of a "O" ring. That I do not like at all. second, Panasonic ought to be ashamed for not including a paper manual....it is inconvenient to have to go to a PDF file on line..
Summary: I am an amateur who wants to take great pictures from something a little better than his phone camera. So far, I am loving this camera. It is light, takes great shots, and I am looking forward to exploring its on board features.
Summary: Lumix by Panasonic is a brand I have been looking at for several years because of their feature set and extreme zoom capabilities compared to other P&S cameras. Previously I have owned Canon and Olympus cameras with few complaints. But this is my first Lumix. This camera has almost everything you might want in a point and shoot camera - and more. Its feature set surpasses many DSLRs I had been looking at (even the Panasonic G1 and 2).
