Summary: I selected this economically-priced point and shoot to replace a similar Canon SureShot that jammed presumably due to an electronic failure after only a few uses--but after the warranty had expired. So far I'm happy with the Panasonic. It's easy to take in my pocket and easy to use. I do have other larger digitals with stronger zooms that I use for certain purposes.
Summary: Given as a gift and our daughter loves it. Not larger than an iPhone so she can carry it all of the time and use it quickly. Lot's of functions for the beginner or the weekend shooter. As always I can trust the Lumix to deliver.
Summary: Obviously there is going to be a bit of trade-off when it comes to compact cameras. The great advantage with this camera is that it will truly fit into your pocket comfortably (even with fairly tight pants on), it has a nice alloy build, it looks great, and it takes reasonably good pictures. For what it is (you wouldn't expect DSLR quality images from this camera), it is a steal.
Summary: I am a photo entusiast and this camera is now my everyday one that I can take anywhere. The pictures I have taken outside are fine and inside without flash (if it is bright) are also OK. If you need to use flash make sure the subject is not more than 10-12 feet away. Remember, it's a small point and shoot so don't expect stellar results otherwise. Between the 12 filters, different shooting scenarios, sweep panorama and low price you can't go wrong here.
