Great Camera for "Dummies"

Gina, Amazon
8 July 2011
  • 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.

Over 3 years now, and still works like it did out of the box.

  • Summary: I have owned this camera for 3 years now. I have used it wherever I have went to capture pictures. Although it is not as sharp and clear as an SLR, it does everything I've wanted it to with exceptional quality.

Compact body, sharp photos, easy to use

GUILLERMO MADURO-VAZQUEZ "Guillo", Amazon
4 July 2007
  • 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...

24 February 2006
  • Summary: So far this camera is great, everything it said it would be. I am still learning all it can do. I would recommend it to anyone! I am only holding the fifth star to see how it lasts in the long run.

Terrific Zoom

R. Tang "Electronic fan", Amazon
2 January 2006
  • Summary: Great camera, zoom and OIS. Manual not great at all. With good lighting indoors using the party mode able to take relatively low noise pictures without flash. Printed out a 48X(optical + digital) zoom picture and was quite clear.

Very nice, but not perfect

DN, Amazon
29 December 2005
  • Summary: Nice image quality, great zoom, lots of features. But some nits to pick: - The "simple" mode produces pretty poor pictures, with no flash and no image stabilization (that I can see) - User manual is barely comprehensible -- poor content, poorly edited English - Support (updated drivers, software,...

Awesome pictures, poor video

Eryn Smit "gadget geek", Amazon
12 December 2005
  • Summary: I purchased this camera and took some amazing still photos with it. Images were crisp and clean with very vivid colours, and the interface was easy to use. This camera has a powerful flash and the 12x optical zoom plus image stabilization are both very effective.

Bordering on excellence

Amazon Customer "T. T.", Amazon
16 October 2005
  • Summary: I've had this camera for about 3 mos. now. Several of the good things you've probably already heard about it are absolutely true; it is light for an ultra-zoom, the image stabilization makes hand-held low-light or long zoom shots possible, the optics are excellent, it's got a full range of options,...

Not bad but the noise bothers me

W. Zhu, Amazon
5 September 2005
  • Summary: I bought this camera after quite some research and I have had great time with this camera for a few months now. Image stablization and the big zoom have probably doubled the "good" pictures I can get from each trip.
