Summary: I've had this camera less than a year and have already outgrown it. I love the idea of it looking like a real dslr but it really do not compare. First you can only view the pics you take on the LCD screen. Second, it takes a realllllly long time for the shutter to go off.
Summary: This camera is a joke. This camera is hard to focus close, normal and zoom. It also takes forever to snap a picture. I should have purchased from companies that make cameras and not tv's. For what I need it for it doesn't work so i have to buy another camera soon.
Summary: I bought this camera as a gift for my son. I wasn't getting grand children pictures. He wanted it for pick and shoot. He drives on country roads and gets to see much wildlife activity. I bought the faster card so the camera would write faster. I visited this weekend and used it.
Summary: Basically you get what you pay for when it comes to cameras. Not meaning this is a bad camera, its not. It's a pretty decent camera for scenery and basic photos not photography quality if you need crisp and clear shots at any distance.
EXTREMELY Disappointed with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ30!
2 April 2014
Summary: I've had this camera one week and no way no how does it even come close to my Lumix DMC-ZS5, my all time favorite Panasonic camera! Yes, there is a 2-3 second delay with snapping a digital image with the LZ30.
