Good as a spare camera

I.Peters, Amazon
31 July 2011
  • Summary: The Lumix DMC-S1 is the second Lumix model I own, my first one being a . The DMC-S1 is a good basic camera, suitable for beginners or people who do not want to have to read manuals to be able to shoot decent pictures. The Pros: - Size: Very small and thin, perfect for stashing it in a shirt or pant pocket. The lens is flush with the camera body when retracted so nothing protrudes uncomfortably when carrying it.

You get what you pay for

Georgina L. Sparks, Amazon
31 July 2011
  • Summary: What my parents have always said is true with this product: you get what you pay for. For under $100 you are getting a small point and shoot camera. It will fit easily in your pocket or purse and will reliably take decent shots. If that is all you are looking for, you will be satisfied with this camera. It is a good value for under $100!

Okay Camera for a Beginner

K. Groh, Amazon
29 June 2011
  • Summary: I've had Panasonic Lumix cameras in the past and have loved them. This one is not really up to par but is offered at one third of the price so I wouldn't expect it to be of the same quality. It is very light and the case is made of a very lightweight plastic which unfortunately gives it a very cheap feel. The zoom is okay but it has trouble focusing on anything from about 20". The pictures are basic, not a ton of detail but okay for a beginner's camera.

No English instructions...European Plug !

Paul, Amazon
25 July 2012
  • Summary: Received the camera in double quick time so no problems there, and in fact the camera is very good, however there were instructions in all the major European languages ...but not in English!! The plug on the battery charger was also a two point plug, and had a convert plug that you had to use. I guess I am lucky to have a girlfriend who can read German !! If you're in the UK and going to buy from this seller check that there is an English instruction book contained...

MALA DESICION..... HAY MEJORES

Luis Alfonso, quesabesde.com
9 September 2013
  • Summary: LA CAMARA PARA INTERIORES TIENE MUY MAL ENFOQUE PUES SUS IMAGENES NO SON NITIDAS LO MISMO SUCEDE EL ENFOQUE A DISTANCIA, UNOS 15 MTS SON DE MALA CALIDAD, PARA QUE EL FLASH, CON LUZ SOLAR LA COSA CAMBIA SIEMPRE Y CUANDO EL OBJETIVO NO ESTE LEJOS, ME DECEPCIONE DE LA COMPRA TAL VEZ UNA DE MAYOR PRECIO EN ESA MARCA SEA MAS CONVENIENTE.

  • Excerpt: В общем для использования в качестве рабочей мыльницы вполне себе ничего. Использую для съемки на объектах и пересъемки чертежей. Вполне хватает.
  • Pros: Оптический стабилизатор Легкий вес Адекватная цена
  • Cons: Очень слабый аккумулятор Очень короткое время работы при температуре в районе 0 градусов (из-за предыдущего пункта)

DESILUSIÓN TOTAL

ADRIAN, quesabesde.com
16 December 2011
  • Summary: Para el precio que la pague ($ 1100) es un verdadero fiasco. Mi vieja kodak c-533 tiene una resolución mucho mejor. En interiores, el flash es totalmente deficiente. La imagen aparece pixelada, con puntos blancos. Incluso la lleve al servicio técnico por si tenía algún problema, pero me confirmaron que no, que esa es la calidad de una foto con esta cámara. Trate con todos los modos y todos los seteos posibles (balances, iso, etc.) pero la imagen es realmente mala.

Lo que le falta

Juan carlos, quesabesde.com
16 October 2011
  • Summary: UN poco complicada en el metodo de "modos". Hay camaras muchos más sencillas a ese respecto (p.ej. la Kodas C 195). Una gran falla: no tiene "recorte". Por lo demás no es superior a cámaras del mismo precio. Optica un poco floja. Muy bueno el sistema de sonidos, tamaño excelente para llevar en el bolsillo,bueno el sistema de recarga de bateria.En resumen :es una camara más. Relacion precio-calidad aceptable. Yo la pagué $ 1.100 incluidos memoria 4 GB y estuche.

  • Excerpt: Жалею,что купил.
  • Pros: Оптический стабилизатор дает о себе знать,даже без вспышки фото в 90% случаев получаются четкими.Хороший дизайн,отличное качество видео.
  • Cons: До этого был Kodak C433,не идет в сравнение с панасоником у кодака фотографии намного лучше ярче.Шумная матрица,если мало света видеоискатель очень уж сильно тормозит(на качество фото не влияет),интеллектуальный режим сьемки очень глупый,фото получаются как на мобильнике.
