Summary: The first one lasted 3 months before it failed by turning all pictures into deck-chair stripes. My wife loved the camera and a replacement in time for Christmas was essential. Unfortunately Amazon did not have any so I had to return it and purchase a replacement elsewhere.
Summary: This is a wonderful camera, so easy to use and wonderful photos and videos. Unfortunately it was stolen on holiday so I have ordered another one.. I would say that is a very good recommendation on it's own.
Summary: Very pleased with the Lumix SZ9 camera, exactly what I needed; works well. Unfortunately then I took my eye off the ball and made the mistake of ordering another item costing in excess of £300; problem is, it was from an Amazon independent vendor, and they are complete s***e; the order arrived in...
Summary: I picked the SZ9 because it seemed, on paper anyway, to have picked up on the points that my wife's previous Panasonic lacked. Particularly zooming when in video mode and it panoramic, both of which she is over the moon with.
Summary: wanted small but responsive camera that could be placed in shirt pocket and used as snap camera. This fits the bill but purchased when price was high (£139.00) Lumix great but consider should have purchased TZ range as bulkier and more tactile when taking pics.
