If you want to capture some memories than this is a must have.

Summary: Honestly this is one of the best cameras I have ever owned for the price. Usually I take super crappy pics and NO a cell phone isn't a replacement for a true camera. This camera takes all of the guess work out of good picture taking. Worth price and also it can't take some really great distance shots.
Summary: I read about this camera at length before buying it. I have a professional camera that I take on vacations most of the time and I purchased this one as a second "point and shoot" camera to carry along with us for quick shots or to use when I did not want to carry the larger camera. I admit, some of the photos that I have taken with this camera rival the ones that I have taken with my professional camera that costs a whole lot more!
I think this is a low quality product and I can argue it because of the following situations:

Summary: I think this is a low quality product and I can argue it because of the following situations: Before the expiration of the warranty, the camera failed and we had to sent it from COLOMBIA to USA IN ORDER TO MAKE EFFECTIVE OUR CAMERA WARRANTY AND THE CASE WAS REGISTER AT PANASONIC, LIKE THIS: 1) warranty for PANASONIC request, before the first year: CAMERA'S PROBLEM INFORMATION. Case No.
Excerpt: Excellent all rounder in a compact body. I use mainly as a back up to my DSLR and for when the full kit won't fit. Great zoom reach and very usable (just don't creep into the digital zoom!), good quality video, limitations are really only those of any compact - relatively slow AF, difficult to use manual settings, can't easily attach a polariser for landscapes etc..
Excerpt: Like it's close sibling, the ZS5, the ZS7 is an excellent camera. It provides all of the core capabilities of a modern point and shoot, coupled with the addition of GPS tagging. Most of the review below follows my comments on the ZS5. They are essentially the same camera with the ZS7 throwing in GPS support. From a point and shoot perspective, the ZS7 automates most of the common functions by the use of Intelligent Auto.
Excerpt: when i dropped my camera about a year ago i was just getting used to it and i really didn't know what type or brand i would get to replace it but i decided on the panasonic lumix mmc zs7 because i have a techy brother and that is the one he said he was considering if something happened to his. i ordered it from ebay and i really like it. it took me a little while to get used to it and i am sure i could be getting more out of it if i read the instructions a little more.
Excerpt: I just bought this camera in June, and love it! It takes great pics, up close as well as zoomed out. Picks up colors nicely. It does average in low light--not as bad as many other cameras out there, but could be better. Overall a great point and shoot! The GPA is nice to see where you took your pics as well. You do need to be sure to turn this option off if you travel by plane though, so that's something to remember that is new.
Excerpt: I used to have a Canon Powershot G3 since ages and just did not want to change my camera although it was high time - until I saw the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7. The pictures and video are so amazing that I was ashamed I didn't buy this earlier. It comes with 12x optical zoom (Note: this is optical zoom and not digital zoom unlike a lot of cameras which advertise digital zoom. You can digitally zoom later using Photoshop or equivalent photo processing software.
