Summary: This is an excellent camera for its time. Two distinguishing features are the zoom ring and manual focus ring which are not found on many other cameras if any. I've had two of them and loved them both however they lack the sharpness of the FZ47 and FZ150.
Summary: I am not a camera expert, I was trying to find a camera that could capture my son's lack of desire to hold a pose for more than 2 seconds. This camera is a huge improvement over my Nikon point and shoot.
Summary: I have several Panasonic cameras with Leica lenses. All are extraordinary: they are very easy to use and are mainly photos with exceptional quality thanks to the excellent quality of their lenses.
Summary: If you want to feel like a professional photographer without paying much this is your camera. The 8 megapixel camera that gives you show you pictures of excellent quality, with all the accessories that you can incorporate as wide angle, telephoto and much more like a really low price.
Summary: This is a very nice camera for taking on my bike rides. Though it is not a pocket sized Point and shoot camera, it weight much less than my Nikon D-200. I love the 12X optical zoom. I was able to photograph a nest of Sandhill Cranes every day, as I biked the trail next to the nesting pond.
Summary: Well, to start out i must mention , i am a happy owner of in order: FZ15, FZ20x2, FZ7 , FZ10 and now FZ30. About FZ30: for the price its a very affective camera to have..its full of features like no other P&S camera has.
Summary: Obviously, if you are looking at this camera, you are looking for a bit more than a simple "point & shoot". I have been using this camera for 8 months now and have taken thousands of shots. This camera and its controls are very easy to find and very intuitive.

Summary: I am just starting to get into this camera. As with most digital Cameras this one has many buttons to learn about, and many modes to choose from. I went to my usual digicam review sites on the internet and read a lot about this camera.
Summary: First off let me say that I'm coming from a DSLR to this camera and it was quite a change, but I did it to get rid of some camera weight when traveling. I was very disappointed with the first images that I shot with this camera as the highlights where blown out, which is typical of the small sensors...
Summary: I'm a pro, working for a large city daily newspaper for 22 years, and shooting professionaly for 25 years (and counting, with enthusiasm for the job). My previous cameras: Sears 500MX (my first SLR), Nikon EM, F2A, FM2, F3, F4, F5 ( all film)...
