7 years and still going

Summary: I purchased my camera in 2007 so I've had it for 7 years now. It has been literally all over the world. From China/Vietnam, all through Europe, a couple stops in Africa and several places in South America. The only place I had an issue was a day trip to Antarctica.
Summary: This is a very nice camera. I've owned the fZ7, fz8, fz30, and now the fz50 and I'm not disappointed. I would have given it five stars but for the fact I haven't been able to get macro photographs with it like I could with the other models mentioned.
Great camera and image quality. Big camera body for a point and shoot

Summary: I agree in full with what everyone says about the image quality and ability to take raw pictures. It is a remarkable camera. One complaint I had was its ability to autofocus in low-light levels. Even manual focusing, which appeared on the screen to be in focus later turned out to be out of focus.
Summary: The Panasonic DMC-FZ50 I have been reading about this camera for months now both pros and cons I'll will soon be taking a trip to Cambodia and needed a better Digital camera then what I have now, I have been a Leica owner for years and wanted to by the DMC 1 but too expensive and too much stuff to...
Summary: The FZ-50 is a Leica lens with a very simple body attached to it. The body has a very simple interface, especially if you have ever confronted the back side of a Nikon D200 with its many bells and whistles, menus, buttons, dials, etc.
Summary: I have had my FZ50 for about 6 months now and I really like the camera, but I feel they could do more. I've taken the camera on two trips to Africa and a few other trips and have gotten some good shots.
Summary: I've been using this camera just a about 4 weeks now and I must say I'm impressed by what I've seen so far. I used a Fuji s5100 for 2 years prior to this and so I had to get used to the larger size and weight of the FZ50.
Summary: Too often people purchase a digital camera expecting the purchase price to increase with it's ability to capture high quality photographs. The reality is, a seasoned photographer could take better pictures with a good cellphone camera than a novice with a dSLR (digital single lens reflex) camera.
Summary: This was my first point and shoot camera. Oh man! the images are stunning. I have been using it for a year and have tried a dozen of point and shoot cameras. This is the best among them. It is very easy to use in auto mode. Great that it has rings for zoom and focus.
Summary: I have been shooting regularly with the FZ50 for about a year and this is my second Lumix camera, my first being a FZ20. I am a wildlife photo-artist and the pictures I've taken with this camera are often the stars of my portfolio.
