worst ergonomic design - power button beside the shutter ends up turning the camera off instead of taking the picture...

Chito P, Amazon
6 July 2014
  • Summary: i have purchased 6 lumix cameras over a period of 9 years. so far this is the model with the worst ergonomic design. i bought this camera because of the viewfinder. it's not perfect but it serves my need for a viewfinder in a compact camera. but i don't understand why panasonic design engineers placed power button beside the shutter... as a result, i always turn the camera off instead of taking a picture.

poor focus

ssc, B&H Photo
11 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought it and things seemed fairly decent for the price (barely any shutter lag, decent write speed for RAW were my big concerns). I would have kept it except for the fact the images were all soft when you opened it up in Photoshop, and most of them where just blurry. The autofocus was having lots of issues. Overall, there was also more noise than expected.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Great Zoom, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Poor autofocus, Poor Image Quality

the power cable does not fit !

christophe, Amazon
23 April 2014
  • Summary: We have a pb. We have used the camera for those last weeks. It is nice, We are happy with it. The pb is that the power cable does not have the correct size so as to enter in the camera itself....!!! :-( We would like to know if Amazon can fix this and send us a new and useful one ! thanks. Otherwise, WE CAN USE THIS CAMERA ANYMORE ! or buy another power cable. But honestly we can not understand how it happened ! thanks in advance.

Very poor quality for a mid-range point-and-shoot

Scott, Amazon
24 March 2014
  • Summary: I've had lots of cameras: everything from full-frame DSLR's to more point-and-shoots than I can count. This is the least impressed I've ever been with a camera! I love technology. I was excited to try out this WiFi and NFC with my phone. What an absolute waste of time! After spending nearly an hour alternating between the instructions and the camera and constant dropped connections, I gave up. I've never been defeated by tech before!

Definitely NOT a Leica in disguise.

One Click Cubby, B&H Photo
10 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought this camera because it is the prototype of the newly released Leica C, but $300 less. It was a joy to use initially, but everything fell apart when I viewed the images on my computer. The resolution was poor, and the noise at any ISO above 200 was unacceptable. I returned it the next day.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
  • Cons: Poor Image Quality

fine camera - that's sure to make your life hell.

A Customer, Amazon
10 October 2013
  • Summary: This camera is fine. BUT Panasonic and its retail partners say it has a micro USB port for charging/data transfer. THIS IS NOT A STANDARD MICRO USB PORT so don't be fooled, like I was, into thinking that the myriad of micro USB chargers that litter our lives will fit! You'll need to buy a whole 'nother dozen cables for the car, office, home etc, and they will look so similar to your phone charger etc, that your life will turn to misery as you realise you've taken...

kein Micro-USB

Votecman, Amazon
19 January 2014
  • Summary: Wie blöd ist denn das, ich ärgere mich jedes Mal wieder das Panasonic keinen Stecker im Micro-USB eingebaut hat sondern irgend ein anderes Format. Micro USB wie (fast) jedes Handy heutzutage wäre doch zu einfach gewesen.
