Dusty dusty dusty

Maggie P., Amazon

  • Summary: I really liked this camera at first. Easy point and shoot, could often get decent pictures of my squirmy 3 month old, held its charge, etc... But after a month a spot of dust got inside the lens. No big deal, right? Just move the camera off-center and no one will notice. Then the spot moved closer to the center. Then a second spot appeared. I tried using a can of air, gently knocking the camera, turning it on and off, etc.. Nothing worked. Now I'm irritated.

Had to return it

Laura J. Wellner, Amazon

  • Summary: This is my second Panasonic, I loved the camera first one and used it for about a year before dark spots started to appear in my photos. This new one also developed two spots that show up in the center of the screen and my photos, I sent it right back. It's disappointing to have the same problem, I've barely had it out of the box for a week.

Slower than expected when taking pictures

Haendel Castillo "HFC", Amazon

  • Summary: I own a Google Nexus 4 cellphone. It has one of the greatest cameras out there. And for sure is a lot better than this panasonic. It is absurd that a phone camera is better than a camera-camera, for me it just doesn't make sense. Zoom=Super great (in fact this is only reason for me to by this camera) Size= Excellent (I like small cameras and this is a very small one, very compact with great zoom) Speed=Horrible.

Lumix

  • Summary: Camera arrived very quickly so no problems with shipping. As for the item itself, it is OK, has extra lag time in comparison to several other digital cameras I've had which can make it difficult to capture those candid moments with children or pets. Quality of pictures is nothing special, perhaps I need to play around with the settings a little more but on auto the pictures don't really come out too great.

Disappointing .....may improve now

Jill, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been disappointed with this purchase, but a friend has just pointed out that it was operating with 640x480 pixels instead of 2448 x 3264 pixels! Why would the factory settings be like this? Also its a pity the motion picture setting isn't more obvious- but that's a lesson in reading through the instructions. Hoping I will get more out of this now.

Black Spots

Delta, Amazon
6 February 2013
  • Summary: Bought this on the basis of reviews and functionality. Received today, and first impressions were very positive. It is a lovely little camera to hold and looks great. After putting in the battery and memory card and setting the clock I took 5 photos. Looked at them on the PC and there is a dark spot on all of them, the spot is most obvious on the photo where I had zoomed in to the max.

Good, but not brilliant!

Flosska, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this to replace a Sony Cybershot but a bit disappointed. It has a very good zoom, great for outdoors, esp scenic shots. Managed to get close detail of things, without being obtrusive. Used it for 3 weeks on hols in USA, took 1700 photos in New England. Daytime fine, almost all evening pictures not very good colour. Tried amending it to no avail. Got home & started taking pics in evening for eBay sales, not at all impressed. Colour is wrong, zoom blurred.

  • Excerpt: В принципе, аппарат соответствует той цене, которую за него заплатил. Радует то, что его удобно брать с собой для ежедневных прогулок, походов в лес и пр. Фотоаппарат реально не мешает ходить, бегать, путешествовать, ползать, прыгать.
  • Pros: низкая стоимость, 10 крат. зум, относительно качественное видео, компактность
  • Cons: качество фотографий
