Excerpt: I often have probs finding a camera that takes good pics in a variety of lighting and actions, with 2 kids and pets we are active and need this. Oddly enough while at a pumpkin patch a stranger asked me to take a pic of their family using this same camera, when I saw how the pic looked on the screen I came home and googled it immed. Reviews were great and so was the price so we bought one. It has traveled all over with us and is a great size to carry in my purse.
Summary: I bought this camera specifically because it had a wider angle lens than most other point and shoots out there in the same price range. As someone who shoots mostly indoor pics in tight spaces (a shoot a lot of apartment interiors), I need the widest possible lens I can get. And in that regard, this camera works very well. I've had the camera for about a year now and I have it on me pretty much every single day.
Summary: This is and excellent camera. The Leica lens is a star performer for sure. Ease of point and shoot and much more for the more experienced or inspired photographer. Despite what the manual reccomends, Lithium batteries are the best option for this camera.
Summary: This is the 2nd Panasonic Lumix I have bought. I bought this compact for my wife based on the quality and value of the Panasonic Lumix brand cameras.I have owned the Panasonic Lumix DMZ-F27 for 3 years and really appreciate the ease and quality. My wife is still working on using her Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ10K and really likes what the camera has to offer!
Summary: The price on this camera has been fluctuating a lot. when it is less than $110 it is hard to beat for the combination of features. Probably not a good deal for greater than $150. I agree with many positive reviews, just want to highlight some pertinent negatives for some users. Lens is relatively slow (3.3- 5.9), so in low light the ISO will be bumped up a lot, producing grainier pictures.
Summary: I got this camera as a backup for when I am going to a place I dont want to take my larger Nikon d60. As for what it is advertised to do it does do the job. Its a nice alternative to the nikon when I can't bring it. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because to two things. First, it takes a lot a battery power, and when I say a lot I mean A LOT! My rechargable batteries only last a max of about 3-4 hours.
Summary: Great quality for outdoor shots. Could have a better flash for indoor shots. Outdoor landscape photos and Architecture quality photos are as good as cameras costing twice or three times the price.
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, GREAT PICTURE QUALITY, Great Zoom, Small / Compact
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Not good for low light, Poor Flash, Short Battery Life
