Almost perfect pocket sized point and shoot.

R. Mcclymond, Amazon

  • Summary: It's better than the average point and shoot camera but more expensive too. You generally get what you pay for. The sensor is bigger and the optics better than the average point and shoot so you can control depth of field better. It's not as good as a full sized SLR as far as depth of field control goes but it's definitely better than an average point and shoot. The image quality is also much better.

On-off button is annoying

LT-Auburn, Amazon
19 June 2014
  • Summary: It's a great little camera and takes beautiful pics. I gave it a 4 because the on-off button is in a strange location and makes it too easy to turn the camera off when you think you are snapping the photo. After 600-700 pictures I'm starting to get it, but it's annoying.

Sharp photos, accurate colors, good dynamic range

T. Fiero, Amazon
24 April 2014
  • Summary: I've had the Lumix LF1 for 2 months and have been pleased with its performance. Image quality is generally very good--though you can't expect it to match the output of a good DSLR or more expensive point-and-shoots with larger sensors, such as the Sony RX-100. I'm particularly impressed with the excellent image stabilization (evident when taking hand-held videos), the good dynamic range (for capturing detail in brightly lit or shadowed areas), the panorama function that...

Ideal Pocket Camera

Charles West, Amazon
19 April 2014
  • Summary: The LF1 size and weight is as advertised. Easy to carry. Some controls are a bit small for adult male fingers; as an example, the diopter wheel works for the EVF, but is very tiny. Build quality is very good, as to be expected from Panasonic. I'm still learning the camera, but the scene mode shots I've taken with the LF1 are nearly as good as my Fugifilm HS 50 set on the same mode. I was surprised and pleased.

Great photos; form factor could be better

Rich B, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: This is small and easily pocketable, which is what I wanted to replace my Canon Elph. Takes great photos, with almost no shutter lag and has capabilities that most people will never use. With the downloadable software, through Wi-Fi can transfer photos to computer (slow), or even use my iPhone as a remote. Menus can be a bit confusing, but have worked through that.

Great camera, terrible software

John Rundle, Amazon
12 March 2014
  • Summary: The camera itself I like very much. It is the best pocketable camera with a viewfinder that I am aware of. The manual is another matter: To format a memory card, for example, you need to take the camera off the default iA setting and then scroll down the the 8th page of the setup screen. The manual only says the you need to format the card. Battery charging is also a problem. Battery charging can only be done in-camera with a proprietary, too-short cable.

Jury STILL out!

dalman88, Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: Just got it and still learning all the bells and whistles. Far more complicated than my lil' old Canon SD1100 IS. Which I have taken all over the world with GREAT results. Controls are NOT intuivitive. YOU have to RTFM. Not easy to do since it's only on PDF. The battery life is abysmal. Not sure why. Does WiFi suck it down? How can I turn THAT off? I would say beware of cheap batteries and chargers on Amazon and pop for OEM. However.

Great compact camera -- except for the non-standard USB connector

Randy Prakken "airpor41", Amazon
25 February 2014
  • Summary: Takes good pictures. Easy to use. Fits in my pocket. Would be 5 stars but for the stupid USB connector. I selected this for the WiFi remote shutter release for bird pictures. WiFi was a bit difficult to set up on a Samsung S4 but once I found the right S4 setting * it works fine. I have transferred pics to my S4 and then up to the Internet which works fine.
