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: 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...
Summary: Took awhile to get things set properly. Recommend that digital zoom feature be turned off. The viewfinder tends to give impression that image is great when it enlarged too much and finished picture looks bad. Great images can be made with it off.
Summary: I spent about 6 years off from camera work and in the past I used a 35mm film camera with a bunch of lenses. I wanted to get back in to my passion again, but didn't want to get an extremely expensive DSLR. So I went with the Lumix FZ100 after going over many different bridge cameras.
Pros: With good lighting it has great quality video and picture that is hard to tell the difference between a DSLR and this. Even untouched photos turn out great if you take the time to set the camera up correctly.
Cons: Low lighting with filming is really hurt hard, but with an additional light source it changes it to be a great camera. There really isn't anything else I can think of as a weakness on this camera.
Summary: Bought this camera after hours and hours of researching mega zoom cameras. Based on reviews, price, cnet, and talking to professional photographers, I decided on this camera. And I am not disappointed. It is easy to use, has incredible photos, and ever feature known to man.
Summary: I own the fz-35 as well. I am NOT a pro or anything at all but i take a lot of pictures and I am trying all the possible functions and all of them work perfect i don not know how to take professional pictures but, the fz-100 Is way better in my opinion i do have a and it is very fast.
Summary: Reasonably light anyway. I was looking for a still/hd video camera that could be carried on a belt pouch and not be more than say twice the weight of an A710IS, and small enough to fit when wearing a rain jacket on top. Decent image quality and camera ergonomics was important too.
Summary: I've taken this camera on one trip and have taken about 900 photos with it. I've discarded very few pics and am in love with the camera! I shot mainly on auto and am very happy with it having exceeded my expectations.
