Took too long to focus

Amazon Customer "Larry F", Amazon
31 October 2013
  • Summary: I didn't have this camera long enough to explore its features. I received it at work and tried it out. The camera took at least 2 - 3 seconds to focus. In this amount of time, you can miss quite a few shots. I returned it the next day. In the camera's defense, I may have simply received a defective unit.

No Audio Notes On Still Frame Still

Panasonic
13 January 2013
  • Summary: Since the making of the DMC-fz50k all subsequent cameras have lacked the feature of being able to record audio on a still frame, also referred to as voice memo, or photographer notes --- I hope its in your next camera------- it beats GPS hands down--- However both features would be good.
  • Pros: Durable
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations

Very Slow at Focusing

Joe Haracz, Amazon
21 December 2013
  • Summary: Was really keen to get this camera but was disappointed with the results. Already have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10 so was expecting great things from this camera. Unfortunately that was not the case, it took to long to focus at most zoom settings so unless the object was still you would miss the 'moment'. Expected clear and sharp images but they were a let down to. I used 2500mAh NiMH batteries and found that they didn't last anything like advertised.

Returned to Very

Joseph, Woolworths

  • Summary: I was really excited about getting this camera and spent weeks reviewing it against various other camera's but after playing with it a few times I ended up really disappointed and returned this camera. The AI setting was very poor and most photos I took were blurry and took a while to capture- if you want to capture pictures of animals or anything fast moving I wouldn't recommend this camera.
  • Pros: Lens Cap

Dissapointed in this latest model. DMC-LZ30E camera

Mr. G. Gamble, Amazon
24 August 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this camera thinking that an higher magnification zoom would be helpful with my bird photography. I was wrong though for the following reasons. At maximum zoom it struggles to find the correct focus. There is no viewfinder so on bright days it is hard to see the image screen. Unless the day is bright then there is not enough light getting through the lens to get any speed due to low aperture on lens.

disappointing camera

1234d, QVC
11 May 2013
  • Summary: same review as erica plus you are unable to use optical zoom when shooting video, you have to stop filming , zoom in and restart !!! NO PAN and ZOOM facility. The pictures on maximum zoom when in auto mode for some reason seem to lose depth and colour, my old compact takes a better picture.

За эти деньги - лучше взять другой

OBSOLETE, Onliner
19 September 2013
  • Summary: Неплохой фотоапарат за деньги которые я платил в европе - 180 евро, но для цены указанной в Беларуссии лучше задуматься о покупке другого фотоаппарата. Фотографии выходят хорошие, чуть зернят по темноте. Видео которое он снимает просто ужасно!!! С мобильного телефона видео лучше. Эффекты, выспышка, зум, управление - нормальные, не фантастические, а посто обычны. За указанные 315 у.е. я бы выбрал бы что нибудь другое.
  • Pros: Качество фото. Долго работает от одного заряда аккумуляторов.
  • Cons: Видео. Ночная съемка. Завышенная цена в РБ.
