Great pictures, great buy
10 June 2012
Summary: Love the light weight and the picture quality. Took pictures of birds on my bird feeder and close ups of flowers in my garden as soon as my camera came and they all came out clear with vivid color. Even took pictures of the "big moon" we experienced shortly after I bought the camera, even with the telephoto wide open and no tripod to steady the camera the pictures were beautiful and clear.
Summary: This camera has all the features I had been looking for a camera with a 24x zoom. In addition it came with a large numbervof useful accessories. I much prefer Panasonic Lumix to Canon and Nikon for it's quality and features. This camera is exceptionally light and easy to use!
Summary: Perfect camera for its class. A simple point and shoot and/or a tool of higher precision. Sharp, quick, fun. Easy to handle - Easy to use. Bright, crisp display and view finder. The lens damn near shoots macro as well as telephoto and stays sharp through out its focal length. Accepts additional lens and filters. 3 year extended warranty which covers drops and spills available from manufacturer at a reasonable fee.
Pros: This camera represents an excellent combination of price & performance. It does everything well and it's extremely easy to use. If you pay attention to the compromises that the manufacturer makes to hit the price-point then you should end up being ver
Cons: Image quality suffers with decreasing light - but a tripod helps a lot. Brand name batteries are BADLY overpriced. Panasonic is very proprietary when it comes to batteries so aftermarket batteries must be selected carefully to ensure compatability. Best
