"I expected much more when I bought this camera."

  • Pros: I really see no pros for this camera. Picture quality, poor construction and dust make it a poor camera.
  • Cons: DUST and less than great picture quality. Low light is very poor, and the lens is not as good as my old Kodak Z650.

  • Summary: Since my first 'digital' camera, I have owned 6 other small digital cameras. I have paid as much as 4 times the price of my Panasonic Lumix for one camera. I paid less than $100.00 for the Lumix and it is by far the BEST digital camera I've owned. I would give more than 5 stars for 'value for money if I could! Great Ebay price..

You'll never buy another camera

  • Summary: Absolutely love this camera - bought it as a backup for my other, which is the exact same one. Great pictures, easy to use, lightweight. Would highly recommend, especially for a novice. However, you might want to note that it does not take abuse well; the shutter will stick if you try and use it in the rain. I would also strongly recommend buying the plug-in car charger. The bottom line is I like the camera so much that I have two.

  • Summary: Picture quality not as good as I would like. Close up pictures are good. I had the canon sx100 and it is much better.

Excellent picture quality with lots of pro features.

  • Summary: I thought I'd post this as a counter-balance to the negative reviews that trash the camera based strictly for battery issues.
  • Pros: Great zoom with real wide-angle. Even greatly enlarged pictures show very little pixelation. Offers lots of manual and semi-auto shooting modes for photo geeks. Easy-to-use. Scene modes work well. Excellent build quality with most metal body.
  • Cons: LCD display could be brighter in sunlight. A little slow shot-to-shot. Flash could be a little brighter.

  • Pros: I have taken this camera to Washington D.C and from morning to night it performed amazingly well. The automatic mode does its job if not on a little low key mode. What I mean is that it doesn't take that many risks in the pics it takes. However, if you le
  • Cons: The Zs5 does have some drawbacks however. Anything above 400 ISO will produce some minor but still there grain and anything above 600 unless played with is very noticeable. The camera can be temperamental when dealing with its setting at times...requiring
