Disappointed.

  • Summary: I had an older version of this camera and loved it. I lost it. This replacement does not take photos of the same quality and does not have the flower close up feature. I'm disappointed.

Totally bailed on me

Ahimsa Kerp, Amazon

  • Summary: It's not a bad camera; I like the small size and it has some fun features. But less than 6 months into buying it, it utterly crapped out on me, leaving me cameraless.

Low Quality

S. M. Barnes, Amazon
18 April 2014
  • Summary: Right out of the box, you can tell that the camera is not quality. It feels and looks cheap with a plastic, flimsy body. I started taking test photos around my living room and couldn't believe how awful the photos were. I ordered this so I can take better everyday, casual photos than my outdated phone, but my old cell takes better photos than this camera! I should have known the price was too good to be true and I will be returning this ASAP.

Looks nice out of the box but mediocre results

G. L. Munn, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been very pleased with other two Lumix purchases but this camera was a disappointment. The iPhone 5 camera takes far better pictures than this. The lack of a macro mode means that close-up shots will be impossible. My wife was dissatisfied with this gift.

Initially thought it was ok but on closer look, it was not as great as what I thought it was.

Romeo P. Venes, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this to replace a Lumix FS7 which I lost but which met all my expectation for point and shoot camera for the last 3 years. This replacement is much better than the old one I lost. I am updating my review of the SZ3 I got after 2 months of use. The former Lumix which I lost was found and I got to compare the picture quality of the 2 Lumix I have now; i.e., the FS7 with 10MP and the 16MP SZ3.

  • Summary: The photo quality is not good, and the camera is very basic. It almost seems old-school. I wouldn't recommend it.

I really wanted to like this camera

iguanamom, Amazon

  • Summary: I had to switch from a really nice Canon (not a point and shoot) to a compact camera due to extensive traveling. I didn't want to spend more than $200 on one and I wanted one with a fairly good zoom. Everything I researched kept bringing me back to this camera. At the time there were only about 10 ratings on it but they were mostly positive.

Hoping for Better Photos

  • Summary: Used yesterday and photos were not clear, colors not bright. A disappointment. I have two other small, point and shoot cameras (other manufacturers) which are far better.
