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 quickly using a basic program and the results were satisfactory.
Summary: I wanted a camera with with more than a 3x optical zoom for my trip to the Great Wall in China. The Panasonic LZ2 fitted the bill. It had a 6x zoom and it was the right size to handle with gloves on. It took excellent mementos of my trip. I wish though that the body would have been of a heavier material than plastic.
Summary: The item had many scratches, but works fine and my son loves it. The camera doesnt have a viewfinder, so the LC is likely to drain the batteries faster. All the features of the camera seem to work just fine.
Summary: I bougth this camera a month ago. I am very satisfied with this buy. It is an used camera, but it's in excellent condition. Looks like new. Like other Lumix Camera it has an awesome picture quality. The 5 megapixels CCD and the aspherics lens took excellent pictures. The only negative point it that in landscape mode, daylight or night, the autofocus often doesn't well focus the pictures. My general impression is that i have made an excellent buy.
Summary: I have owned this model for 2 years and just bought another on ebay. I would agree with all the positive reviews in this forum except that the camera is hard to use in bright sunlight as the screen in not bright enough and there is no viewfinder. I ended up buying a 3rd party screen shade that glues on the screen and folds up when not in use.
Summary: This is an excellent bang for the buck camera. Of course the LZ3 took its place now, which is also an excellent camera. Unless you need or desire full manual controls and you don't have much to spend, then this camera is the one for you. Superb image quality, super accurate color reproductions, excellent macro mode, top of the line lens/glass, image stabilization, 6x zoom, compact, and I could go on.
Summary: The camera is very easy to use with simple controls for various conditions. The antishake function is great and one can get near perfect pictures always. The photo quality is awsome, even with the zoom at full. I was looking for a camera that I could carry in my shirt pocked that had zoom and micro capability as well as good resolution photos - I was not disappointed here.
Summary: This camera has more optical zoom than average, which is good for enlarging prints This camera also has image stabilazation - good feature The lens and zoom are not as good as my other camera, but it is much more compact, and lighter.
