I like it!

  • Summary: I bought this camera about a month ago and have been using it in my digital photography class. It had all the options I needed to be able to learn all I needed to know about manually adjusting your ISO,f stops, shutter speeds, and all that good stuff. It allows you to become an artist in the process and not just a button pusher, so it's better than a basic point and shoot. Also, it has RAW format which conserves more of the data for later use in Photoshop editing.

  • Summary: Bottom line - This is an excellent camera. Not just an excellent compact or point and shoot but an excellent camera period. While not a complete replacement for an dSLR, the FZ8 is pretty darn close. Given the current price in the low $200s, it is one of the best values in digital camera available. Details: This is my 5th digital camera - 2 Nikons, a Minolta, and a Kodak. Of all, the Nikons have the best picture quality but the Panasonic is not far behind.

Value for money

  • Summary: I had used many point and shoot cameras and wanted to move on to a SLR but was way out of my budget. This lumix FZ8K is good for intermediate enthusiatic photographers. It gives you a good manual control as well as automatic functionality of a point and shoot. If you are not going to use the manual controls then i wouldnt recommend this camera, as it would be little bulky for a casual user. The image stabilization is good and the 12X zoom is awesome.

  • Summary: I am still learning to use the camera, but this camera set had everything I could need. I am very happy with the value and half my first pictures turned out. - I never used a digital before. But It has a great zoom on it and a nice screen along with a memory stick, and great carrying case.

  • Summary: I have used quite a variety of point and shoot digital cameras over the years and for not much more money this camera is infinitely better than all of them. I really appreciate the size and quality feel of this camera's construction, the intuitive controls, and all of the included accessories (Leica lens, lens adapter, lens hood, etc). I was able to figure out the controls and start taking great pictures within a half hour of opening the box.

  • Excerpt: I would endorse 'noselot's' review entirely. As probably one of the worst photographers in the world I bought my FZ8 in an attempt to, at least, get the objects that I wanted to take in focus. The results are amazing, certainly for me. On our recent trip to Lanzarote I took over 300 pictures, half of which I discarded because I wasn't happy with the layout/angle/light but the remainder were exactly what I wanted. The zoom is quite phenomenal.
  • Pros: All
  • Cons: None
