Bought It For the Wide Angle Lens... & the Price

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 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: Was luck enough to buy this few weeks ago when it was $99.99. Unit arrived on time. Great photos although havent printed them out yet or downloaded to computer. Lots of nice features like the 5x optical zoom, manual controls available aside from Auto. Lots of flexibility. Anti-shake function too. Downside is flimsy, plastic, matte construction. User manual has some flaws in terms of clarity. Hard to find a matching camera case though.
A good camera for a casual user. Great price. Easy to use.

Summary: I got this camera for my mother for her birthday; she was long overdue a digital camera upgrade (say 7 years late). I read the reviews and got the camera based on them. I think the reviews were right on the money. The quality is good, the picture is more than acceptable and it is easy to use the basic functions and setup. I did not get to explore the video capabilities with her nor the wide angle feature (sill do on her Thanksgiving visit).
For those of you replacing a 3-4 year old camera, it's tough to beat this

Summary: I had a Sony DSC-P9, which was all the rage a long time ago when I got it - after all, it had 4 whole megapixels. I decided it was time to replace the camera, and I didn't want to spend anywhere near what I did on my Sony. This camera works great as a replacement for an older digital point-and-shoot. Images are clearer, there are fewer chromatic aberrations at higher ISO ratings than older cameras, and low-light performance is better. Time to shoot/flash recharge/etc.
Summary: I bought this camera last month. Haven't had the chance to experiment much. So far, the only downside is lack of view finder. I love this camera. Has great quality picture. Sharp little thing!
