Thoroughly disgusted and will never use Panasonic again!
13 March 2015
Summary: This is the second Panasonic camera I have owned that broke a little over one year old and out of warranty. The repair cost is half of the price of the camera. Customer service is terrible. When you try and start the repair process on the Panasonic web site, there is a web link.
Excerpt: Very disappointed to find out that when I shoot video, the camera records a loud whirring sound. Unusable footage. Also, if you wear polarized lenses, you cannot see the screen when the camera is held vertically.
Summary: I bought the camera with the perception that the manual and instructions were in Japanese. This was not a problem because I found a manual on line in English. When I received the camera and turned it on everything was in Japanese.

Summary: Took this to South Africa with me and got the most amazing shots of wildlife without lugging around giant lenses. LOVE this camera. Can't recommend it enough. My brother, who is a professional photographer and a perfectionist, found it for me online and said it's an amazing bargain.
