Excerpt: Bought this camera because of its having an eyepiece viewfinder. My wife takes daytime landscape shots where as often as not the LCD screen is washed out by sunlight. The viewfinder makes accurately seeing what you are taking possible. So far she loves it, we both do, as I use it as well. It has many more customizable options than we are likely to use, but that's fine. The lens is Leica, none finer. So far no complaints.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Summary: When you want a P&S that is capable (with the right input from the user) of very good results, that will fit a pocket, have a VF that is half decent, and not cost a small fortune... this is pretty much the bees knees. I purchased one for my wife, who will not tote anything larger, but wanted very good IQ and a viewfinder. After using it for a 2 week trip to the UK, I have to say it covered 99% of what I wanted too.
Pros: Inexpensive, Compact, Easy to use, Exceeded expectations, Convenient, great lens range for the iq and size.
Excerpt: I mostly take family travel pics, bought this for a Hawaii wedding trip because it fit in my pants pocket!I loved having a viewfinder and zoom lens on a pocketable camera. Pic quality is great in good light.I found the viewfinder very usable and used it on 95% of my shots in Hawii. (I don't wear glasses.) However the v.f. diopter dial on mine was very notchy & hard to set.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: This is the best pocket camera I have had and since it shoots RAW I am using the DSLRs less. The viewfinder has made for good photos when the lighting was bad for the LCD screen. The battery/SD card cover is solid with good latch, while another P & S latch went bad and camera went to recycle. I seemed to get only a bit over 100 photos before the last bar of the battery indicator went away which is far less than advertised.
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom
Excerpt: It's small enough to carry easily. Takes very sharp crisp photos with good color. One problem is that the ON button can easily be pressed by mistake when taking it out of one's pocket, thus extending the lens - I'm afraid it will get hurt. Feels well-made.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact, Viewfinder
Excerpt: I am happy with my new Panasonic Lumix. I got it to take on a European vacation when I didn't want to tote my Canon EOS 50D and large tripod. My Canon S 100 was being repaired and I wanted to make sure I had a top point and shoot, with manual controls, and an excellent sensor. Had fun trying out the creative settings, though I doubt I will be using them: Toy, HDR,etc.etc. And it has a viewfinder!
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Small / Compact
Excerpt: The LF1K is a small camera that fits in a shirt pocket very well. In the little time that I have used it, the pictures and movies look very good. I did not use it in low light indoors or at night at this time. Movies in IA mode can zoom to 14x, but, if you use P mode you can zoom until the movies get too grainy(i.e. lots of zoom). Great little camera. The view finder id great in bright sun light, much better then no viewfinder.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Great Zoom, Small / Compact
Excerpt: If you are looking for a good backup camera (backup to your SLR) or want to have a simple point&shoot since is the camera to go with. Just bought it for a vacation in very challenging environmental conditions and I am stunned by the quality of the pictures.
Pros: Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
