Value and Excellence.

Summary: The Lumix DMC series of camera gives you all the features and quality of more expensive cameras. I have purchased 4 of this type of cameras. One for each of my two children and one for myself. The oldest one had a flash problem and I replaced it with the LUMIX DMC-FZ18K.
Excerpt: I bought the Panasonic FZ18, it truly has an amazing lens. I got excellent shots at 18x zoom w/auto settings. Also the face detection is a nice feature! I am very enthousiastic about this digital camera!
Summary: I bought this camera off of ebay as a used camera, but I swear it was like it had never been used, perfect condition! Takes great pics and movies. I recently upgraded to a FZ28 so I sold my FZ18, but only because I could not afford to keep both cameras and I really like the high def video of the FZ28. But this model is fantastic - can't say one negative thing about it....
Summary: A friend was enthusiastic about the same model camera he had purchased. After researching digital cameras, we chose this model. It has excellent features and is fairly easy to operate as well as being light-weight. I also desired to have a unit that "looked" and felt like a camera. I am very satisfied with the detail of the pictures I have taken thus far.
Summary: I'm a tech teacher for a high school and I've worked with lots of different cameras and the Panasonic Lumixes have always been my best buys for the price range. My students love the built in zoom lens (no need to change lenses on the run) and they feel like they're using something more sophisticated than a basic point and shoot. You also get a large number of pictures on one battery charge even if you constantly use the LCD.
Summary: i got this camera as an entry level piece before i would get an slr. this is surely a dlsr replacement camera. reduces the hassels of lens and manual controls.. had a lot of good pics with it. it also has an awesome batt life, around 400 shots. this camera has convinced my friends around me to buy one as it had all they wanted..
Summary: I've tried the earlier versions from Panasonic, but this is really ultimate... The product was delivered on the said time.
I have a suggestion for Panasonic - to provide zoom functionality in video mode. If the camera had a zoom while taking a video, then there would be very few cameras to beat it.
