Summary: the included charger would not work. in talking with Panasonic tech. support, they indicated the equipment was probably not produced for the US market. Also, the model number for the charger was not the number for the charger that Panasonic supplies with the camera.
Powerful features in a small but frustrating package

Summary: I bought this to replace an older and larger Sony digital camera that always takes beautiful pictures. I like the compactness of this Panasonic camera, and it does have the "theoretical" ability to take excellent photos.
I'm not happy this is happening to a brand new camera

Summary: I have had the camera for 5 days, and have already had problems with using the charactors to sign into WIfI. They have referred me to an expert. If this problem can't be fixed I will send it back for a refund. I'm not happy this is happening to a brand new camera!!!
Summary: I have had this camera for 5 1/2 months and it's broken already. The spring inside the battery compartment is keeping the battery from going in. I love Lumix cameras but I am not at all happy with the quality of this camera.
Summary: The battery lasted less than half of my original battery. Considering the price, may be it was expected. I would put 1 star, but since I was able to use the charger for the original battery and priced low - making this 2 stars.
Summary: I bought this for my wife for a trip abroad. We are dismayed by the poor quality image. She is shooting at ISO 80, Aperture priority, and processing the RAW images (JPEG Fine is lousy) with Silkypix or PhotoDirector, converting to TIFF, and doing further editing with PhotoStudio 6.
Summary: The batteries fit great and the external charger seems to be made well. So far the batteries seem to last just as long as the OEM battery. I can't attest to the longevity of these batteries yet which is why I am giving it only 4 stars.
Summary: pensavo fosse più semplice da gestire, il menu non è intuitivo, ho anche scaricato il manuale integrale e, tra le tante cose cercavo come formattare la mia mmc da 32gb e non è descritto da nessuna parte!
