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.
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).
Summary: First of all, ALL of today's digital cameras are amazing. I've used several different brands and they are all fantastic in terms of quality. The FZ100 is no different. Of course, for the money it had better be good, right? After using the FZ-100 for about a month now, I am totally impressed with how much quality and number of features are packed in this gem. I pretty much use the "auto" exposure feature for my shots, and haven't been disappointed in the least.
Great value for the traveller.........awesome product

Summary: I bought this 14megapixel camera, feeling it would be better than My Nikon P-100. I do feel that although this camera has 24x vs. 26x of the Nikon it has superior zoom although using lower MP and can attain a whopping 289x @ 3mp!!! It additionally has a rotating LCD screen whereas the Nikon only had a restricted partially up & down screen. Additionally it has an external flashshoe whereas the Nikon does not. It can take 5 frames with multiple flash.
Summary: This camera is light and there is no need to take extra lenses. It is loaded with features and is as easy to use as the point and shoot cameras in the auto mode, only better. The zoom is just awesome.
Great choice for those who don't want to lug around extra lenses

Summary: I'm very pleased with this camera. Picture quality, speed, video, zoom etc. are all outstanding. I made a mistake buying the Kodak Easy Share which has great features (though not as good as this camera), but is just plain SLOW! I love the burst mode: great for action situations and group shots so you can get that shot where everyone's eyes are open.
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. I find it useful to use when shooting macro so I don't have to bend all the way down to capture the image. I am now into Infra Red photography. I take black and white. I use a Hoya R72 filter.
