it's okay, except

Summary: it came with no manual. okay there WAS a manual, but it's a folded piece of paper with small images from an actual manual which are very hard to read or fully comprehend the images / diagrams. An actual little booklet would be good as would a PDF (which would be searchable). Hunting for the desired info on the folded sheet (and refolding) is very frustrating and as a result, I'm not good at the controls, hence the camera is not so useful.
Summary: The only thing is when recording a video at a place that is exceptionally loud such as Electric Daisy Carnival, the audio quality of the camera lowers itself to a really muffled sound and it is quite annoying if you're an audiofile. Other than that, picture are good.
Summary: My last point-and-shoot camera was a 12MP Sony DSC-W220. I decided to go for this camera (ZS-5) after my brother showed me pictures he took with the ZS-7, they were so good I could not believe my eyes. I did not want the GPS, and according to the specs the ZS-5 had the same lenses and would perform nicely.
Summary: I purchased the Panasonic ZS5 camera in early August. I have taken a cpuple of hundred pictures and several videos with the camera. The camera is user friendly but I would like to be able to refer to the operation manual while learning the features of the camera. The Instruction manual comes on a CD in the form of an Adobe PFD file that is some 170 pages in length.
Summary: I am pretty pleased with the camera video and picture quality they still have not improved much on the sharpness of the pictures from previous models that i have had but they have improved a lot on the colour it is fantastic very rich. the only thing that lets the camera down is the build quality. prevous models i have owned have been rock solid but on this model switches and dials are very loose and comes accross as being cheap.
Summary: "Curruculum Vitae" 09/04/2010: Compra de una LUMIX Panasonic TZ8 . Me la regalan unas semanas después. 19/05/2010: Rayon en el objetivo de la cámara. Se lleva a Worten. No lo cubre la garantia. 08/07/2010: Tras pagar 98 e. y muchas llamadas recibo la cámara "reparada". 19/04/2011: Repeoducción de video "HD" paupérrima. 03/08/2011: Aparición de un borrón en cuadrante superior izq. 15/08/2011: Justo debajo, aparece otro borrón. Mi pregunta es, es normal todo esto?
Summary: hace 1 semana que compré la Tz8. La verdad es que estaba dudando entre la Tz10 (con GPS, HDMI y sonido estereo) y l Powershot SX210is. Al final, me compré la TZ8, porque no tenían la TZ10 y porque la calidad de las fotos y el manejo manual, etc, es el mismo que la de la tz10. Y como muchos usuarios han comentado, cuando hay buena luz, la calidad de las fotos es buena y no deja nada que desear, pero cuando no hace solazo, y la luz no es tan buena, o incluso en interiores,...
