Summary: I have this camera since 2007 (6 years) and works perfect! The quality is good for a point and shoot camera. I am not a photographer, so I used it on birthdays, vacations, partys and for me is enough. Easy to use. Deserved 5 stars, considering the 6 years old of it!
Summary: After buying 2 Sony digital cameras that malfunctioned within months, I decided to try Panasonic digital cameras and was highly pleased with this one. Images and colors as crisp and well focused. Definitely very satisfied!
Summary: Back when I ordered this product for a few customers it was top of the line, other image stabilized zoom cameras with 7.2MP or better were too expensive to afford, so this was a great inexpensive option.
Summary: I have been using the camera for a month now and have taken more than 200 pictures. Here is what I think about the camera: Pros: - Fast auto focus - The camera, with easy-to-read user manual, is easy to use - High/nice picture quality.
Summary: Just not dependable. My old 3.2 mega pixel Toshiba has more continuity. Not bad, just not great. Panasonic, although usually not cutting edge is almost always of outstanding quality. They missed the mark this time. (IMHO)
Pros: Takes AA batteries a real plus for me since they are readily available and I use rechargables. Good size, not to small, easy to read on screen icons and functions are great for even a beginner. Battery indicator is a real plus.
Cons: When you get a good photo the detail is this cameras sweet spot, just don't count on it all the time. Grainy images, focus is never consistent even taking multiple images of the same shot. This occurs even at ISO setting of 100.
Excerpt: As any camera this one has its highs and lows. AA-NiMH Batteries last very long and the interface is easy to use. Unfortunately, the noise at ISO 400 and higher is ruining many pictures. I also tried action shots at the long end of the zoom and they are just terrible.
Summary: This is a good camera, compact, takes great pictures. The only con is you can't see the LCD in the sunlight and no view finder but I knew this when I bought the camera. They have a cover for the LCD screen that I am going to try. Camera was delievered earlier than promised. Thanks.
