Summary: Used this camera now for 3 weeks in fairly rough conditions (900 mile, 15 days circle bike ride through Idaho). The camera performed very well. I have found that you really need to learn the camera and all the setting option and the effects they can have on your photos.
Summary: I got this point and shoot as a smaller and quicker alternative for when I don't want to lug around my SLR or spend time adjusting aperture/shutter settings. I've generally been very happy with its features and photo quality for the price.
Summary: I purchased this camera in July of 2010. After 11 months of totally satisfied use the dreaded "Dark Spots" began to appear in the view finder and in photos. The dark spots are the result of dust getting into the camera and clinging to the CCD sensor.
Summary: This was my second Lumix point and shoot and It's an excellent little camera that I use whenever it isn't practical to take my my larger DSLR. My first Lumix somehow got dirt between the lens elements and it left spots on all the final shots.
Summary: Have used the camera a few times. Tried the auto setting and the shutter took a long time to actually shoot the picture so people would move. Switched over to the sports to get a quicker shutter speed at an indoor kids birthday party. Thank goodness there is editing with digital.
Summary: I recently got the ZS5 to shoot pictures of my kids and to have something small and portable to capture those quick moments when I would miss the shot trying to get out a DSLR and mount a lens and.... I chose to go with the ZS5 instead of the ZS7 for a few reasons.
Summary: Very pleased with the functionality and the design. For our consumer needs we are happy with it. The optics are great, and with the SDHC cards we use -- we don't have to worry about exceeding the kind of small on board memory - I think 40Mb - with full capability photos.
Summary: The image quality of this small 12.1 camera ia amazing !! Battery life is super. fits in a shirt pocket. I have a Panasonic/ Lumix slr and the pictures are as good or better. One better aspect is the 24mm wide angle. It will photograph 3 walls of a room.
