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.
"Great pictures but toss software and turn on the lights"
4 January 2011
Pros: Love the 12x zooming, the menus are easy to follow. The facial recognition work great and the quality of the videos are great.
Cons: You do have to over compensate if there is poor lighting. Used AI feature hoping it would adjust and it never did so I went manual - once I did the pics totally rocked. Poor placement of audio features. Plus, toss the software, its useless.
Pros: Honestly, I haven't found anything that overly impressed me.
Cons: I did alot of research for months before deciding which to purchase. Previously I have an older Sony Cybershot overall I feel still takes better consistant pics. Too many blurred pics and the quality is inferior unless you enhance each picture.
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.
