Summary: I bought this camera (panasonic lumix) 2 years ago and its CCD is totally crashed now and shows nothing. Warranty of CCD is 6 month. So, if you want to use a camera for 6 month and ready to trash it, then I recommend you to buy this.
Summary: Bought this camera in February 2008. Being very careful about my cameras, I was totally disappointed to realize that, suddenly, last September 2009, the display showed only blurred and purple "images". When looking at menus, display was perfect. Diagnostic from Panasonic Service Center: CCD dead!
if you are taking pictures indoors SKIP THIS CAMERA

Summary: I have had this camera for a few years now and i am just your average person taking pictures of my child. This camera takes the WORST pictures indoors. If the lighting is low, even with a flash the picture will be washed out or too dark. Outside the pictures are lovely.
Summary: Bought the camera because my daughter had high praise for it, I read many good on-line reviews, it has a large viewing screen, and it could take flash pictures in quicker succession than my previous camera, the Canon PowerShot A520 (whose screen broke followin a severe fall).
Summary: I tested this camera extensively. For casual point-and-shooters, who print small prints, this camera is small, has a great zoom lens, and gives usable pictures. For those like me, who like enlarging pictures, or cropping, this camera blurs details.
Excerpt: The Panasonic TZ3 is an 8.5 mega pixel digital camera with a 10x optical zoom, 4x digital zoom and a 3" LCD screen with a resolution of 230,000 pixels. The impressive battery life allows for 270 images to be taken. Available in black, blue and silver.
Summary: I bought this camera to take on holiday at Christmas, I went to the Canary Islands for some winter sun. The Camera takes great photos, if and its a big if, If you are out in the sun trying to see the beautiful big screen with the sun behind you, all you can see is yourself.
Summary: He tenido esta camara y la vendi porque la calidad de las fotos eran pesimas. Me la compre porque sobre el papel era la camara perfecta, pero a la hora de tirar fotos no consegui que salieran bien casi ninguna.
Pros: Buen diseño, muchas opciones, muy completa
Cons: Fotos de muy mala calidad, falla en lo basico
misleading item title and camera totally out of order
24 November 2009
Summary: The seller did not use the word "defekt" in the description. He just mentioned the misleading expression "suitable for doityourselfers" The description states : Leider fährt das Objektiv nicht mehr ein und der Auslöser zum Fotografieren funktioniert nur manchmal. Für Bastler hervorragend geeignet.
