... could write for ages why this camera is so good, the zoom is fantastic
23 October 2014
Summary: I could write for ages why this camera is so good, the zoom is fantastic, the quality of the camera is excellent, its durable and well made but its not too bulky, it fits in your bag or the GEM large camera case perfectly. Camera has a good weight to it, so its not heavy on your neck.
Summary: Excellent camera, does what it says on the tin. Very well built, nice to hold and simple to use. Any 20-1200mm lens (35mm equiv.) is not going to be perfect, but I have tried it out across the full range and its good enough for the family/amateur, a single camera for the beach, walking in the hills or a day at the zoo – this is it.
Summary: Loved the camera at first. Beautifully made and feels nice in the hand. Zoom is awesome. However, when taking photos without zooming. I noticed the left side of a number of images would be blurred. Even had the camera replaced, only to discover the same problem. Spoke with an engineer at Panasonic and it seems this is due to the power of the zoom lens. So a great camera for zooming. But no use for standard photos.

Summary: I have had a Panasonic Lumix camera for some time , but this is something else the Zoom is fantastic and no need to carry a big lens with you . I took pictures up to a mile or more away and they were still good quality pictures . for close work the pictures are so clear. I LOVE IT.
Summary: This is the third Panasonic camera that I have owned. I have stayed with the brand because of the quality of the product and the capabilities. Each Panasonic I have had has been better and better. I keep thinking there is nothing more I could want from a camera but they keep enticing me. This one is so unbelievably good - the 60x zoom is fantastic.
Pros: 60x Zoom, Amazing Facilities, Durable, Ergonomic, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Simple Controls
Summary: This is well worth the money as long as you keep your expectations in check. 1) Image quality. In good light conditions with this camera it is easy to produce great images. In lower light conditions, the small sensor will require you to work harder. On longer zooms, you will work very hard to maintain good focus and good pictures especially above 900mm (35m equivalent) but images are good enough up to 60x with a solid tripod, they tend to diminish with intelligent zoom...
Summary: This is the best purchase I've made on Amazon. Amazing Camera, wonderful quality photos, easy to use. I will admit I am an amateur but it's easy to produce amazing results and learn more about photography with a Camera like this. The 20mm lens means my landscape photos have been amazing and whilst it isn't brilliant in low-light, it isn't shabby by any means and the optical zoom and wealth of options on the camera make up for anything this camera might appear to lack.
Summary: Satisfied with this camera,bought it mostly for the zoom.Image stabilization and focus are very good.Does need a lot of light to take good pictures otherwise it will increase ISO or exposure to compensate,which will result in not so good images.Also Jpeg pictures are not so good(I'm using only Raw because of this)but I think so most bridge cameras with this kind of sensor .It has a lot of features and for this price I think it's very good.
Summary: People will buy this camera for TWO reason only the ZOOM ability and ULTRA WIDE ability so I assume most people will just want to read about them so: 1) ZOOM - is exceptional, no obvious distortion and the stabilizer keeps the image pretty shake free. 2) ULTRA WIDE angle is as it says much wider than a standard lens and wider than most.
