Summary: The camera is one of the best I've owned! I love the zoom on it! Even if you happen to get into the digital zoom, it still takes awesome pictures!! The only thing, now that I've had it a while, the battery doesn't seem to want to last as long, once its charged. Other than that, I still love it!
Excerpt: Well it's getting towards the end of 2012 and we've come a long, long way since the release of this camera. I've owned a number of Panasonics as well as around a couple of hundred film and digital cameras in total since 1979.
Summary: I purchased this camera for my wife in 2005 and I don't know how many thousands of pictures have been taken with it. The photo quality of this 5.0 MP camera is far better than the much higher resolution point and shoot (plastic lense) cameras that I have owned or used.
Great camera and still performing great after 4.5 years!

Summary: Hi, i bought this camera on January 2006 and till now this camera is still looks and performs like new. I am still using original battery and it lasts for more than 200 shots per charge after 4.5 years of usage!
Summary: I bought this camera used for $99. What a bargain!! It takes fabulous pictures! I downloaded pictures I took at Niagra Falls and use them as my screen saver and I can't believe I took those pictures. They look like they were taken by a professional!
Summary: At 5 megapixels this camera is somewhat outdated, yet with owning newer and supposedly better cameras I still grab this one most often. The lens is stunning, fast and clear with an amazing zoom ratio. I got this camera when I was fascinated with photographing ducks.
Excerpt: This point-and-shoot digital camera has been called “SLR-like” and the label is well deserved. With independent manual settings for aperture and shutterspeed, it offers flexibility not usually found on alot of P&S digital cameras. It also has one of the lowest ISO settings I have seen, even …
Summary: I've had this camera for a few years now and love it, BUT I have discovered that I cannot do long exposures needed for most night photography. The maximum built-in exposure time is 8 seconds, far too little for most night photography.
Summary: Update June 2009. Well it's been a couple years and this camera is still my all-time favorite. Lumix has come up with some really nice cameras that are more compact and have that advantage, but wow, the photos from the FZ20 are just spectacular. Hope it lasts forever.
