LCD inadequate outside, image stabilization good for person with a tremor

Raquelita, Amazon
1 April 2013
  • Summary: Lightweight beginner camera but looks as if I will only be able to take pictures outside in early morning or at dusk. In bright sunlight the LCD reflects my shirt. Bought it for the good image stabilization but will probably return it. I wonder why other reviewers haven't commented on the LCD problem except for one who mentioned the "tight viewing angle." This is the first camera I have had without an optical viewfinder so I didn't anticipate the problem.

  • Summary: I already had a luminex S53 which I love. I bought this for my daughter. She wanted a blue color camera! This is more of a toy camera. Not very good picture quality or features. Spend a little extra and get a higher model Luminex.

A disappointing Panasonic, which is a first for me

Yarii "fifty shades of blonde", Amazon
9 January 2012
  • Summary: I love Panasonic cameras, having owned 5 of them now, but this one was VERY disappointing. This was intended to be just a good inexpensive camera to carry around in my bag, but it's too cheap-feeling for even light-duty use. Shiny, slick plastic, hard to grip, the lens motor sounded weak so I fear it wouldn't last long - and it also made strange noises now and then when turning the camera on. Defective camera?

you will get what you paid for

newbie, Amazon
29 November 2011
  • Summary: I wanted to like the product because of the low price (I got it from lightning deal for $69) but it is much below my expectation. Note that this review is only based on my short experience before I return it. I ordered this product since I like the color of the pictures taken by Lumix cameras. When I power on the camera, the lens was coming out while making buzzing noises; it buzzes also when retracting.

Great camera, BUT.......

Nancy "trsgirl", Amazon
15 August 2011
  • Summary: Okay I will admit I have only had it for 2 days now. First and foremost, if you plan on actually loading the pics into your pc, STOP. Can you use it if the cord is 23 1/2" long? From tip of USB plug to end that inserts in the camera. I HAVE a front USB jack and I cannot set it on my desk. SHEESH. My main PC with jacks in the back--nope, can't use it. AT ALL. So I have to use the spare one, and that's not the one I NEEDED IT FOR.

  • Excerpt: Покупался ребенку на новый год. Сейчас придется нести в сервис, но судя по поиску означенной ошибки, она типична для фотоаппаратов этого семейства.
  • Pros: Цена.
  • Cons: Сломался в течении месяца. Перекосило механизм объектива, выдает сообщение "системная ошибка фокус". Пробег меньше сотни кадров.

  • Excerpt: Много лет использую недорогие фотоаппараты Panasonic. Всегда отличные снимки, компактность, и не жалко. Было их штук 6 примерно. В поездки брал 2 шт. в разные карманы. Топили, теряли и т.п. Покупал новые. Но линейка DMC-S сплошное разочарование, объектив рядом лежал с предыдущими моделями, например DMC-FS4, DMC-F2. Снимки плохие даже при хорошем освещении. Цвета блеклые. Смазы...
  • Pros: Цена. Компактность.
  • Cons: Низкое качество снимков. Блеклые цвета. Много брака.

  • Excerpt: Жалею, что купила - слово Богу продала и купила Samsung, качеством фото которого довольна, хоть он и более медленный
  • Pros: Фотографирует быстро, компактный, симпотичный дизайн
  • Cons: Ужасное качество фото как со вспышкой, так и без нее. В вечернее время без вспышки фотграфирует похо. Первый месяц вроде было все хорошо, но потом качество фото становиось все хуже.. По итогу стали получатся фотграфии вообще размытые и с оттенком желтого. Фотографии получалось скидывать только лишь вытащив карту памяти, для чего тогда кабель в комплекте - непонятно...
