  • 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...

Fills a perfect niche for me.

  • 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.

Great as a video camera, not-so-good as still camera

  • Summary: I recommend Lumix FZ100 for video enthusiast that need external microphone, good zoom and creative options with full HD. If you need great stills, look for a four thirds.
  • Pros: External mic input Control for Speed, Aperture, ISO while shooting video Great Leica Zoom
  • Cons: Far from perfect quality for still photography A bit bulky

  • 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. The weight of this kit required a pack-horse and I found it difficult to have the appropriate lens on the camera at the right time. I added the Lumix TZ5 to reduce the bulk and travelled extensively with both through 2010.

Great camera IF you take the time to make it that way

  • Summary: First of all, I should say I am NOT a professional photographer; most days I probably don't even qualify as an advanced beginner. So please forgive my non-technical review :) I read several of the reviews before deciding on this camera, and while there were several negative reviews there were far more positive ones so I decided to give it a shot.

Great, Versatile Camera

  • Summary: UPDATE AT BOTTOM! I've only had this camera for a few days, but I'll go ahead and give my initial impressions. I'm headed to the Grand Canyon next week, so I'll update the review when I get back with more detail as needed. I had been contemplating this purchase for a while. Then, I decided to wait for the Nikon P500.

"Good camera"

  • Pros: It feels good to hold this camera.Super speed. Hold the button and it goes Tak, Tak, Tak as many as you require,and real quick. Turn it to Aperture mode and you get good shots. No complaints at all at ISO 100 in A/S/M modes with any light.
  • Cons: Manual focus buttons.

Excellent camera for long-zoom point-and-shoot

  • Summary: After reading many reviews, I decided to order this camera. I'm not disappointed. I made many of the adjustments to the settings as recommended and find that it takes excellent picture once these adjustments were made. The image quality is not up to a DSLR, but that shouldn't be expected. It has some problems in low light and as long as I keep the ISO below 400 and make the recommended adjustments based on the various reviews recommendations it takes great photos.
