  • 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.

  • Summary: Definitely a "bridge" camera, with lots of functions and great automation for snap shooters and advanced amateurs

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.

  • 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.

Great camera (if you work at it)

  • 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.

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...

  • Summary: ********** Yellowstone update: Last week, I took over 7000 photos of bears, bison, wolves, elk, moose, geysers, mud pots, etc., and I'm thrilled with the FZ100's performance. It was comfortable in my hand and on the strap around my neck.

  • 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.
