Summary: Decent - not as clear as a ZS3 I had previously. (I thought it was the same but they are different; ZS3 has more zoom too). Also I prefer a removable battery - this one requires a special cable to charge and plugs directly into the camera. On the pro side, easy to work and very portable. Overall I am happy with Lumix, just have preferred ZS1 and ZS3 (but not ZS10).
Summary: Panasonic Lumix cameras are the best in my book . We have 3 different size Lumix cameras and they all take amazing photographs. I bought this one to carry in my purse when we go on jaunts around the area we live. The outdoor photos are amazing.
Summary: this compact camera does its job very well. I works well in low-light, a feature I need for documenting building evaluations. The only disadvantage I've found; it is more difficult than some to hold - there is no built-in 'handle' as some have. It makes this camera more difficult to hold and aim with one hand than some others. Other than that, I would heartily recommend this camera.
Summary: I had this camera once, hit it on the side of the kitchen sink which shattered the screen and almost cried. Great little affordable camera that easily fits in your pocket. Zoom is quite good. My only downside is that it sometimes takes a couple of tries to get the correct focus on a subject (but when you do it's wonderful) and there isn't really a good setting for flowers. There are a couple of really neat editing features right on the camera.
Summary: Okay, I'm fairly certain I was sent a used or returned camera. As I opened the box, I could tell it had been opened before. Then the bubble wrap pack holding the camera was unsealed AND there were fingerprints on the LCD display of the camera. Geez. Really? You're sending me USED stuff now for NEW prices? (I'll be filing a complaint in addition to this review). That being said, the camera appears to be fine, works just fine and all that. I'll play with the settings, etc.
Summary: I also shoot a Nikon DSLR but I always keep this little camera handy. It's size and quality make it great. I call it my "cheater" because most people can't tell the difference between photos taken with this camera or my DSLR. My only complaint is that it doesn't have obvious access to a macro mode. A little exploration revealed that the "food" setting works the same as macro mode on most cameras.
Summary: I lost a Lumix overboard while kayaking. Bought this as a replacement. Very happy with it but discovered the battery is not the same as my previous Lumix so I am not able to swap batteries. Why did they do that!?
