Excerpt: I have an older point and shoot camera, the Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ2. The 5 mega pixels available are enough for my needs and I managed to take great quality photos with it, some of them very professional. If the resulted picture didn’t look very well, I retouched it …
Summary: I'm just a point and shoot guy. I don't use all the fancy settings on this camera and I only glanced at the manual. The pics are awesome. I've gotten numerous compliments on my photos with very little thought and effort on my part. The colors are accurate and vivid.
Summary: Purchased this camera for the 6x zoom. Worked well for about a year. It is pretty much impossible to see anything in the LCD outdoors in any kind of daylight. You often have to just point and guess. When it took pictures the quality was very good. After about a year the LCD screen when black.
Summary: This camera has been my pride and joy for about 3 years, survived a three foot drop onto a concrete floor, and it takes quality pictures. My only complaint is that now that I'm learning a bit more about photography, it lacks a lot of options for aperture and shutter speed.
Excerpt: This is quite a good camera, though lag times are on the high end. The Sony light sensor is its failing - The Sony light sensor has a VERY LIMITED life. For the Australian prospective purchaser - DONT!!! Panasonic are abysmal for user support.
Summary: After doing a bunch of research, I bought two of these for my teenage kids since they were said not to have the defective Sony CCD that late model 2005 point-and-shoots all seem to have had. The first zamera lasted six months before the lcd display began to worsening exhibit dark striations.
Summary: The only thing I will tell you is for the money,this is a simple camera to operate. The pictures are crisp and the anti-shake mode is excellent.I would have liked to been able to crop pictures in the camera,,but you can't have everything. It really is a great little camera...
