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: 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.
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!
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.
"Awesome camera. A little too big but great photos!"

Pros: Takes really great photos. Sensor size of 1/2.5 is really solid - especially for its release. Has very easy to use menus and buttons are perfect for me. I love the Aperture and Shutter, Manual settings for taking pictures with a tripod.
Cons: The lens sleeve for attaching lens protectors blocks the flash on the bottom of the photos. Just too big for me, buying a new camera that will fit in my pocket.
lightwieght, simple to use and all around fun for any person.

Excerpt: It is a easy camera to use. It is good for starters in digital photography. For the most part the quality is very well, it does get a bit uncrisp if zooming in but it is a quality of pictures that can be both professional and regular if you learn how to take the pictures correctly. For the most part it is great, I have had one snag and sometimes when holding down the button it takes a few seconds extra before clicking, however that is rare when it happens.
Excerpt: There were not any issues with resolution or picture quality. The best feature of the Panasonic Lumix Digital Camera is the zoom feature. The auto zoom works really well. I like that I can snap pictures of subjects rather quickly. This means that I do not miss an opportunity and have a moment gone because I am fumbling with the camera trying to get the zoom to work. I highly recommend buying the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 Digital Camera.
