This is a great entry level camera for the novice that wants something more
7 December 2011
Summary: I was told about the quality of the pictures that this camera took from a friend. When I noticed the higher resale value I knew it was something special. I found one selling for the price I wanted, bought it, and I have not been dissapointed. It is a good entry level camera for someone who wants something more that the typical point and shoot.
Summary: Great camera. This little guy will do almost everything a DSLR can do in a compact size. Optical zoom is 18x and if you include the digital zoom for far away landscapes you get 72x zoom. Great lens, easy operation, and every function at your fingertips. To save battery life, use viewfinder instead of lcd for taking pics. If you are looking for a great compact camera that has everything, this one is it.
Summary: Nice zoom excellent design 18x optical zoom quick menu i used to have this camera and couldnt give up,bought again i have also standard 8.1 mp 10x zoom model lumix and panasonic(japan) correct choice

Summary: This is a great small camera whos 18x magnification and very fast lense change spoils the normal amateur photographer, great pictures with camera settings automatic. Easy to set and use getting consistent vibration free shots. I take a lot of outdoor scenes using the pre sets and a-1 settings. both are great, but i'd give the scene a slight edge. location of buttons and switches very convenient. I am a one handed--right-- shooter and find every thing convenient.
Summary: Pros: almost everything. This camera takes fantastic, quality photos-it has to with a Leica lens.It's also made in Japan, not China. I love it and would buy it again in a heart beat. It's the perfect balance; RAW or JPEG (or both), 18X zoom, 10 MP (any more is a waste of time unless you're going to make huge posters)THE BATTERIES SEEM TO LAST FOREVER, not like many cameras that eat them.
Summary: Best camera for a first time DSLR user out of the box. Auto mode setting and features provide very good pictures and allow room for experimentation.
Pros: Night photos, Clear Snap shots., Excellent video
Cons: AF beam located in a bad spot and can be blocked while holding camera at base of lens, Under some lighting situations you have to fight some of the auto features., Photos other than night shots not as clear as Nicon or Canon in the same price range., Focus is awkward in video mode, Hard to find replacement lens caps
Summary: I purchased this camera for taking pictures at a family reunion. The camera is fantastic. I was able to take pictures comparable in quality to my cousin using a high end Nikon DLSR. One of my other cousin's was pointing out for amateur photographers that don't know how to use all of the features of a DSLR that that cameras targeted for the amateur will produce much better pictures because the learning curve on how to produce good pictures is much less steep.
