  • Summary: Easy to handle and works good in burst mode. It captures nice pic in daytime but not very good in dark.

OK

  • Summary: For all the great reviews, I thought this would have been a better camera. The shutter speed is SLOW. Make sure to use a very fast card with this one. In fact, a slower SD card won't allow you to take video. When it works, the pictures are great. Unfortunately, because it is so slow, most (75-80%) of my pictures end up blurry, I've never had this with any other digital camera I've owned, so I truly believe it's not user error.

  • Excerpt: This is my third Panasonic superzoom, and the only one i have a few complains about! The first is that the camera build quality is definitely lower than the past Lumix superzooms, which is a crying shame. However the video is great, the zoom range and wide angle is is fantastics (competitors now offer high zooms and wider wide angles!), the optical stabilization is the best in the market.

Panasonic Customer Service / Warranty

  • Summary: It is really hard to rate this item, without discussing customer service / warranty issues as well. For the first week the camera worked well, but after two usages the LCD screen became pixilated and the camera was sent to Panasonic for warranty repair. The warranty department stated that NO EXTERNAL DAMAGE IS COVERED AT ALL.

Love some things... Others... not so much!

  • Summary: This camera is loaded with features and the it does do alot of what it claims. It does zoom really well. However, the more you zoom, the worse the quality of the picture. Still something worth having in many situations. I took a shot of my husband down by a swimming pool from my eighth floor condo balcony on vacation. I was surprised that I could get as much of a shot as I did. My biggest disappointment was when we went out on a whale watch in the bay.

Their warranty isn't worth the paper it's written on.

  • Summary: While the camera itself is great, if it breaks down for any reason you are basically screwed. When my camera broke, I was never able to speak to a real person. Panasonic's automated phone line and web help both directed me to send the camera and all its accessories to their center in Texas. I shelled out $15 to send the camera back.

top notch point-and-shoot

T. Stahl, Amazon

  • Summary: Length:: 0:50 Mins The attached video was made straight out of the box, without reading the manual. Note that the original HD file has much better resolution (you get some loss going from 160MB to 22MB). The video shows the zoom function right up to max zoom. The image stabilization keeps the picture very steady, even at max zoom and in low light. It's so easy to use it's embarrassing.

  • Excerpt: Pros: -Well built, save the battery door. -Usable zoom range. -Accurate, fast focusing. -Great HD video. Cons: -Horrible image quality in anything but bright sunlight with an ISO < 400. -Poor battery life. -AVCHD is nearly useless. I've owned this camera for nearly half-a-year, and I no longer use it. It's nice to have such a large zoom. But the images from this camera in anything dimmer than bright sunlight look like a watercolor painting.
