Excerpt: This was my first digital camera. I didn't want the typical flat point & shoot. Was looking for something more like the film carmeras that I loved. After researching, I found this was the camera for me. Have not been disappointed. Easy to use camera & software. Pics are delightful. Battery life is pretty good - have had over 3yrs w/out replacing. Nothing negative to say about this camera.

Excerpt: I am proud to be the owner of this fine camera. The overall quality and the great lens make this an exceptional digital camera for the thousands of pictures I have taken with it. The zoom and stabilizer feature make it easy to take great pictures. Motion picture ability is another plus! Shuts off automatically if you fail to turn it off, to conserve battery life. For the price (check WalMart) it is the best buy you can make.
Excerpt: This camera is a 6 megapixel, lightweight camera with a high-quality 12x Leica zoom lens. It powers up very fast, almost like a single-lens reflex. Focus and shutter response if very fast. Picture quality is good. Because of the fast focus and shutter lag time, it is great for taking sequential shots at nearly 3 frames per second. You can take photos at this speed until the memorty card is full.
Excerpt: I have had this camera for about a year and have taken about 3000 pictures with it, most of the sports photos of my boys. The zoom is great for getting that close up on the football field and I use the burst shooting mode all the time. I get great action shots. The camera is very easy to operate and the feel in you hands is great.
Great camera for people who love to take pictures!

Excerpt: I've had this camera a little over a year now and I love it! It has a lot of different options for picture taking and yet is pretty easy to use. I love the pictures I've taken with it. It even stands up to a fall. On our vacation to Hawaii, I dropped the camera on a concrete sidewalk. All that happened was that it got a scratch, I didn't lose any pictures at all.Great camera!
Excerpt: I received my Panasonic-Lumix camera for my birthday. At first I was disappointed because it was only 6 megapixels. After using it I soon learned that the 12x zoom was more valuable than the number of pixels it had. At my daughter's graduation we were unable to get seats that were really close and I didn't think my pictures were going to turn out very well. I was wrong! I was absolutly amazed at how well the pictures turned out.
Excerpt: Panasonic Lumix DMC-F27, is the best camera that I have ever had. I have had it for years now and I am not sure how much I paid when I bought it, but I remember it was like 3 or 4 hundred dollars. So a little pricey but worth it. All the pictures I take are such great quality, many look like they were professionally taken. The flash is really bright too, I have used it in our backyard at night and majority of the pictures still turn out great.

Excerpt: I've owned numerous cameras, both film and digital. I've also owned several cameras with digital OIS including an FZ5, FZ20 and two FZ7's. Over the last year the Panasonic Lumix DMC FZ7s have become my cameras of choice. Yes, they are light weight, but not toys at all. Rather, they are impressive working tools. The results are impressive, and if you learn to use its features, including noise suppression, it performs wonderfully.
Summary: This camera is excellent; I cannot believe i get it at that price. It is worth three time the price i pay for it; it's just a phenomenal camera, regarding the quality of the pictures you can take. Thanks a lot. I decided to buy it because i was looking for a camera to replace mine i gave to my daughter; but i was not excpecting something that great for the price
Great camera for those who don't need top of the line

Summary: My wife and I love this camera. So much so that we bought a second one (used) after our first one was damaged. I like the use of SD cards, and the availability of lens adaptors, etc. Very nice quality camera that was really great about 3 years ago. It can't compete with the newest models, but a second-hand model would be a great value.
