Summary: I collect cameras and got this on Ebay for $20 with battery. I am VERY surprised at the quality of the pics with this camera. Mine is sharp center to edge and sharpness hold up well even at 112mm. It is a slow lens so flash distance is limited but everything else (including the HD video) is great.
Summary: I bought two of these cameras (one pink and one blue). The first one was for my 10 year old and then my 13 year old wanted one too. It has very good quality pictures. Much better than the kids could take on their IPODs. A memory card is a must. We have had very good luck with this little camera.
Summary: the Lumix series of Panasonic is the best cameras I used, I'm using 3 cameras of this series and I'm very setisfied, it's easy to use, make clear pictures, and nice videos. one thing I'm not happy that I can't make zoom with videos.
Summary: This is the second camera of this model I purchased: first was for 11-year old, who was able to figure it out easily and is capturing some remarkable photos. Second purchase was for a old-fashioned film photographer (o.k., a Luddite...) who has no clue about new stuff.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace an old Kodak that had quit working. I am very pleased with it's performance. Lots of good features not available on the Kodak that make it a very user friendly camera. Works great! Nice clear pictures.
