Summary: This camera is great! I love that it's compact but still has a big lens camera feel. It fits nicely in my purse, and the picture quality is really good. I don't really know much about photography or cameras so this is an easy to use camera for me.
Great buy, 5 years later, still the best camera in the house

Summary: This is my quick review: 1. Per usual, spent 2 weeks pouring over the specs, reviews and ratings prior to purchase 2. I have small children and need something durable and responsive. 3. I'm a casual user...just a little more than a point and shoot queen.
Summary: The Panasonic Lumix FZ5K (K for black, S for silver) is came out on February 2005. In tech terms, it's a little old but still a great camera and an even a better value. It has dummy-proof modes that allow newcomers to digita photography to focus on the composition and is advanced enough for all but...
Summary: I LOVED this camera, everything about it, until it jammed for no apparent reason after having it just over a year. I've seen other users with the same problem on this website so I guess I'm glad to know I'm not the only one.
