Summary: Takes pretty decent pictures. Auto focus detects very fast when you're outdoors during the day or exposed to heavy lighting. However low light settings practically distort your pictures or videos. Definitely a photography camera for beginners at best.
Summary: Nice big lens, super zoom, but slow to focus, mediocre low-light and it froze up a bunch of times. After using it for about a dozen times, we sent it back because it froze up about a third of the times. It might have been a fluke - a flaw in that particular camera, but..
Summary: Just bought this today. I love the camera but zoom isn't very impressive. 20 megapixel is great with 42X zoom but pictures are too blurry in 42 zoom. Thinking of returning it, but will try it for day or two..
Summary: try to ask for a brochure in your language: the box we received was with european ones like swedish, cesky, suomi, no english or spanish; I have to look for by internet. great camera, nice service!
Summary: This camera takes okay photos, but the video is very bad, you hardly see what your videoing I have never had a camera with video this blurry. Also when you zoom in all the way it is extremely blurry I will be sending it back very soon.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ40 20 Megapixel Compact Camera - Black
21 April 2015
Summary: I like Panasonic point and shoot cameras and this is my 4th purchase. I am finding this camera more challenging as I learn about exposure, shutter speed, and lighting. I have not figured out the shutter lens and its speed so most pictures are hit and miss.
