Disappointing

Amazon
22 February 2011
  • Summary: I've had this camera for over a year, and really wanted to like it. It takes fantastic photos of still objects in bright, direct sunlight...but then things go downhill. Photos inside, even with all lights on and people posed, are very burry. I have taken hundred of indoors photos and only have a handful that are good enough to frame. I had a Canon Powershot for years that took great photos inside, so I don't get it.

Buyer Beware

Allison, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this camera for 2 years. About 6 months ago, I noticed if I zoomed, the camera would say to shut it off and turn it back on. About 3 months ago, the flash stopped working. After googling, these are very common problems, which is nice if you are Panasonic and charge to fix this, but not so great if you are the customer. Yesterday the camera stopped turning off unless I removed the battery. I loved the camera while it worked.

Don't take it outside!!!!!!

Mr. R. Forbes "Rick Forbes", Amazon

  • Summary: Yes, in common with everyone else I thought it was great when I first got it until the day when it rained. A small amount of typical English summer rain caused £300 of damage to a £200 camera. Panasonic were very sympathetic and directed me to page 2 of the instructions where it says "do not expose to rain". so there you go, if you buy one of these keep it indoors just in case.

Very Over-rated

Janniebelle "jb", Amazon
26 July 2009
  • Summary: I recently bought this make of camera and am extremely unhappy with the quality of the photos. There is lack of sharpness and definition even when used on the automatic setting. We have tried changing the settings with no success, in fact the camera will not now access the White Balance area. Great! The instruction manual is not sufficient to help solve problems encountered. I cannot recommend this camera and consider it very over-rated for the money it costs.

Appalling indoor performance

J. Reed, Amazon
17 June 2009
  • Summary: I totally agree with Mr Cripps review and I am pleased its not just me! I have juts returned back from a second friends wedding this year and the pictures inside the church (fairly low light) and the reception are all pretty much awful. The focussing took so long the bride walked past me up the aisle before it took the picture, missing the shots altogether.... BOTH WAYS!!! It's going on Ebay soon.

Display defekt nach 2 1/4 Jahren...

T. Schröder "salsero", Amazon
8 June 2011
  • Summary: Mit Funktionsumfang, Akkulaufzeit, Bildqualität und Bedienbarkeit bin ich zufrieden. Aber: nach 2 1/4 Jahren, also kurz nach Ablauf der Garantiezeit, beginnt das Display sich Zeile für Zeile zu verabschieden. Wegen mangelnder Dauerhaltbarkeit also nur 1 Stern. Update 21.7.13: Displayschaden ca. 6x6 mm, wird zur Zeit nicht grösser, Kamera funktioniert ansonsten.

Tolle Ausstattung, die UNGLAUBLICH langsam und "anfällig" ist!!

sommermensch1, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Bitte meinen Bericht mit Nachsicht behandeln. Ich schreibe gerade all meine Klausuren, deshalb gerade nicht sooo viel Zeit mich diesem Bericht die notwendige Zeit zu widmen. Ich habe diese Cam schon 1 1/2 Jahre. Und nach ca. 1/2 Jahr kam beim Einschalten plötzlich die Meldung: "Bitte schalten Sie die Kamera aus und wieder ein". Das tat ich, und es kamm "immer wieder" die selbe Meldung. Die Cam zur Reparatur abgegeben und was kommt als Ergebnis?
  • Pros: Macht Bilder
  • Cons: Extrem anfällig !  Unglaublich langsame Auslöseverzögerung ca 1 Sekunde !  !

Übers Ohr gehauen

mohair58, eBay.de
11 November 2009
  • Summary: Der Artikel wurde vom Verkaufer als neu angeboten, er hat angeblich nur ein paar Fotos gemacht, um die Kamera zu testen. In wirklich keit war die Kamera gebraucht, es waren über 170 Bilder deamit gemacht. Es fehlten im Zubeör zwei Kabel, die ich auch nach mehrmaligen Anmahnen nicht bekommen habe. Der Verkäufer hat zu keiner Zeit zu erkennen gegeben, das er das Problem lösen will. Ich überlege ob ich eine Anzeige starte.
