Summary: This was my first digital camera when it was first introduced (i think). It had been replaced by a Sony cyber Shot. I loved the pictures from the Lumix so much better. I had taken it on its last voyage...a trip to Bermuda on a cruise back in 07. The shots were gorgeous.
Summary: I have owned this camera in the silver version since it was first introduced. I paid one hundred and fifty dollars for it at Best Buy at the regular price. The image stabilization was a really big deal back then. The prices being charged now for the cameras being offered here are beyond ridiculous.
Summary: Excellent buy - great pictures and great video (video records sound but you must play it back on something else to hear it as the camera will play the video back but not the sound - easily overlooked with the quality obtained anyway)
Summary: I don't know how many of you can identify with this, but I started out on a Brownie Starflash as a kid in the 50's. I have loved cameras ever since. I am sure there are better cameras out there, but for my use (which is the occasional inspired photo, but mostly the grandkids), this is the one.
Summary: I bought this camera because I was tired of the lousy picture quality from my Canon PowerShot SX10IS. I was a bit short of $$$ so I didn't buy the Panasonic camera I really wanted but this one beats the Canon hands down so I'm happy.
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 6.0 Megapixel -- VERY SATISFIED
8 August 2010
Summary: I purchased the Lumix DMC-LZ5 as a replacement for the similar DMC LZ-3 which my wife really liked. This unit was recently stolen. The LZ-5 has 6 megapixels vs 5, and a 2.5" LCD screen vs a 2.0 on the LZ-3.
