Summary: This camera is just what I wanted. It has a feature where the screen is viewable while in bright sunlight. The pictures are better than expected. The reason for 4 stars: manual is lousy and Panasonic customer help is chaotic. Movie-making is too confusing, I can't get it to replay on screen, but I'm new to digitals and probably should blame myself. I haven't dealt with the added Loilo software, so can't say if it's useful.
Summary: One BIG criticism: The directions w camera are in SPANISH. I live in Mass...give me a break! I printed 42 page online instructions but can't carry them w me! Seller KNOWs this! Shame on them! Needed cheapie 4 my lost Canon. NO memory cd w camera. Plusses: CS is primo! NO prerecorded menus! English speaking here in USA. Psonic Lum.
Summary: We were looking for the best inexpensive digital camera we could find. This is it - it takes good shots, is easy to use, battery holds very long charge. You do need to buy a memory card for it or you'll only get about 12 pictures before it's full. Once we got the card, it's great and takes many, many pictures. Works best in good light and outdoors.
Nice size, fairly easy to use, good quality pictures and video

Summary: I got it for the price and convenience and the reviews here. It is a good little camera. I like the red because its easier to find in your purse or among your things if you're traveling. The picture quality is nice, pictures are easy to upload to your computer, the battery length is good if you dont play too many videos back. The biggest gripe with it is the non intuitive menu. No logical place where you move from looking at a picture or video to taking another.
Summary: I buy this camera for my sister,she loves it.Have the basic of a digital camera,easy handling,4 optical zoom,auto detection mode,its very lightweight,and the battery life is ok.The negative point of this camera is the base is made in plastic,if the manufacturers replacing this for steel we would have a solid camera,more durable.
Summary: I bought this camera right before I headed off to Asia. It is a good, reliable camera with a good battery life. This is exactly what I needed given that I am a novice and the photos were for personal use and to post to facebook. If you're someone who needs complicated photography features, this is probably not your camera (you will probably have to spend much more $$ though). All-in-all, this camera is sleek, easy-to-use and the quality is pretty good for the price.
Summary: Received this as a gift. Was looking for a small point and shoot that would be easier to fit in my purse than my Fuji FinePix S6000. This camera is smaller than my phone, light, with decent quality photos. Flash works fine, but shots outdoors look the best. Bought a generic SD card which works with the camera, but not in my photo printer. Overall, good for the price.
