Excerpt: Bought this camera last autumn as addition to my dslr. Objective was to take the holiday snapshots with the small TZ40, making more pictures and movies. Looking for decent quality in a convenient small format. Also to venture somewhat more into the digi-scoping realm.
Thoroughly disgusted and will never use Panasonic again!

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: We returned this camera! The entire camera menu and manual were written in Japanese! The details said "Japan Import" which to me meant made in Japan; it didI not mean written in Japanese! The camera may work perfectly, but unless you can read Japanese do not buy it!

Summary: This camera lasted for 3 months before it froze. Then Panasonic made us pay to send it back to them and ignored our request by enclosed letter to have it returned in time for our vacation 1 month later.
