Summary: I purchased this camera for my daughter's trip to France. After having the camera one month, it developed a "lens error" problem. This was one day after the period to return the camera expired, and three days before she left for France.
Summary: Buyer beware!! This camera does not even survive the warranty period and Panasonic does not honor its warranty for the Lumix ZS3. If you have to send something to Panasonic be sure to completely document it - 3-D pictures of the item, serial number, ...
Summary: I bought the ZR1 and was extremely Disappointed. So I decided to return it. Then I ordered for a ZS3 considering that it has been in the market for quite a while and that its reviews are quite positive. After I recieved the camera, I fell in love with the camera general performance.
Summary: I got this camera and really liked it but in less than three months, it developed a severe problem (A dark crescent on every image). I returned it and said I wanted them to either fix MY camera or give me a new one. I did not want a refurbished one. They have changed their policy.
Good luck with Panasonic!!! Battery/Charger problems take a LONG TIME.

However the lens cover started playing up occasionally (not shutting or opening properly from time to time) a few months ago, and now, just 18 months after I bought it, the focus has given up and...
Summary: I had read the reviews of the TZ7 and they were very favourable. I wanted a small camera as I was unable to lug around my Nikon D300 and lenses because of a back problem. Initially I was pleased with most aspects of the camera apart from the close up function which had problems focussing.
Excerpt: I am not an experience photographer so I struggle with camera settings, but this Panasonic Camera is a dream to use, just point and shoot for top quality photos,I was surprised by the quality of the video, almost as good as a dedicated video recorder.and not to big to fit in my pocket which is a...
Pros: small size, fantastic zoom. good quality video,easey to use.
