Great, compact beginners camera. You can't go wrong!

Summary: I purchased this camera used on eBay about two months ago. Since then, I've had the opportunity to challenge it in a variety of situations. It has come through with shining colors(?). First of all, I was amazed at the size.
Summary: like -- light, easy to use, quick on, battery lasts forever, nice ability to take videos, photo quality is great dislikes - it occasionally, (actually rarely, about 5 times in 1500 pictures) does not focus on the image it is taking.
Great buy, 5 years later, still the best camera in the house

Summary: I bought this camera shortly before my first daughter was born in January 2006. I hunted around a lot for a superzoom camera with a good lens, good picture quality, and optional manual and automatic modes.
Summary: This is a great camera with high end, (expensive camera), features at a low end price. It has a good zoom lens, is upgrade-able to a 1Gb sim card (can you say 1,400 plus pictures before needed download or delete?
Summary: THIS LITTLE JEWEL MIGHT BE A LITTLE OUT DATED AS FAR AS PIXELS GO BUT THE LENS IS WHAT COUNTS AND THIS LITTLE BABY HAS THE BEST LENS IN THE BUSINESS LEICA LENS FROM GERMANY TURNING OUT SHARPER PICS THAN TODAY'S HIGHER MEGAPIXELS CAMERAS THIS LINE OF EARLIER PANASONIC PRODUCTS ARE SO GOOD THAT I OWN...
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.
