Excerpt: I LOVE this camera! This is my second digital camer and I have really enjoyed it. I am a graphic designer Mom who was looking for a point and shoot with short lag time and great photos without requiring the flash. Yes, I would love to get an slr, but with a 2 and 5 year old boy running around, who has time to focus and futz with setting? This one is so perfect for me!
Excerpt: i have had my Panasonic DMC-FZ18 for a few years now. i love it. it is easy to understand the settings control, quick to zoom and focus. nice, large LCD screen to size up your shot. the rechargable battery has a good long life. i am a casual user and i have not tried out some of the manual controls. i like having the option of controlling whether or not to use the flash. i also like the "fast action" control.
Excerpt: I absolutely love the Panasonic Lumix digital camera. I have never in my life seen a camera produce such professional quality pictures. I have used my Lumix in just about every light condition possible, even in the rain! Its amazing clarity will leave you wanting to take more and more pictures. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-LC40 is an amazing little piece of equipment. It offers a 3.0 mega pixel picture quality and even a 30 second video capture capability with sound.
Excerpt: I've had the FZ18 for a few weeks now and am loving it more each day. It's easy to use, creates fantastic photos in decent light, and is small and light enough that it doesn't bother me when I carry it around my neck for hours.The camera has features for everyone from the beginner to the enthusiast. Put it in "Intelligent Auto" mode and click away without another thought, or put it in Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority or full manual mode for more control.
Excerpt: I am an interior designer and use the camera for inspiration and to document works in progress and finished projects. I Just returned from 3 month trip to Singapore, Bali and Thailand. Professional photog friend suggested the Panasonic Lumix (any model is great). i bought the DMC-TZ3. It has a great zoom (10X digital). it has 2 pre-sets that make it easy to store my favorite settings. (i hardly ever shoot with flash..
Excerpt: The Panasonic DMC-FZ18 is my third Panasonic diital camera. I also own a DMC-FZ3, and a Panasonic DMC-LZ7. While all of these cameras are easy to use, and take excellent photos, the DMC-FZ18 is the one I use the most because the bulk of my photos are taken at the local baseball stadium which is home to the AA affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Excerpt: The Panasonic Lumix FZ-18 digital camera is an excellent package for intermediate amateur photograpers, who want more than what is offerred by a point-and-shoot, yet aren't sure they want or need the multitude of choices, complex environment and higher expense of the SLRs. The zoom lens can take the picture from 35mm to 18X enlargement smoothly to facilitate framing a distant shot, while the constant autofocus allows the photographer to quickly zoom and shoot.
Excerpt: I love the Panasonic Lumex FZ 18 I am able to take fantastic bird shots and flower photos as well as great portraits of my dogs, I have taken amazing Wedding photos with my Panasonic FZ 18, It has an 18 time zoom which is great for photos of Hummingbirds and other birds that visit my flowers and bird feeders, I have been able to make some awesome greeting cards from the nature shots and bird photos I have taken with my FZ 18.
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!
