Just OK for the price, but is it any better than my iPhone camera?

S. Goldstein "toys for big boys junky", Amazon
28 July 2013
  • Summary: I have only had the camera for a few days, and I have taken a few shots of friends at lunch to test it, and no videos yet. So, my remarks may not be terribly helpful. I will try to return and write more after I get to use the camera a little bit. First, the camera package includes a hand strap which is very useful and one Panasonic DMW-BCL7PP Li ion battery. But, no case and no SD micro card.

Perhaps it is too small?

Eric Lukens, Amazon
10 July 2013
  • Summary: First, be sure to buy a Micro SDHC card with this camera. While Amazon shows full-size cards as accessories to buy, it actually uses Micro SDHC, as written in the description. Further, it uses a proprietary USB cable to charge and download pictures. This is absurd in this day and age, though admittedly common in the digital camera market (why do we as consumers put up with this?).

it is good looking

Zhiyi Guo, Amazon
10 June 2013
  • Summary: Looking is good. I bought the white one. It is very small like a mobile phone,just a little thicker. The image is not good although it has wide angle function (to 25mm). If you take picture in the night, you can not get good image. So I give the 3-star meaning it is small and beautiful but you can not get the good picture quality.

  • Summary: Instructions for deleting pix were not easy to understand. Those are my thoughts and they do not need to be any longer

Lots of potential but too glitchy

Todd G, Amazon
26 May 2013
  • Summary: I really wanted to like the XS1 because the small form factor was perfect for dopping in my pocket and taking along wherever. As they say, the best camera is the one you have with you. But if the camera's software locks up after taking multiple photos and doesn't save the photos to the card, it's worse than having no camera because of the disappointment of losing once-in-a-lifetime shots that should have been captured.

Nice Camera but you may need a better memory card...

Jonathon Bell, Amazon

  • Summary: Not taken many photos yet but writing to the memory card takes a long time. I wonder if it's a poor quality card?

Für die Schnapschüsse ausreichend, mieses Display.

ORKE "Ole", Amazon
24 May 2014
  • Summary: Ich habe mir diese "Kamera" für Schnappschüsse unterwegs auf dem Fahrrad gekauft. Der Fokus taugt nicht immer. Auf dem Display ist bei Sonne nicht viel zu sehen, das Motiv lässt sich erahnen. Da heißt es oft schätzen und abdrücken. Leider kann man in der Sonne das Bild dann auch nicht betrachten. Schade eigentlich.... Spätestens beim optischen Zoomen lässt der Focus schlagartig nach. Nettes Spielzeug, wenn man aus der Masse der Bilder eine Auslese treffen will.

Gut für Schnappschuß

Andreas W., Amazon
28 January 2014
  • Summary: Für sehr gute Fotos würde ich eine etwas größere Lumix wählen mit besserer Bedienbarkeit. Für den Zweck den sie erfüllen soll ist sie ideal. Mein Zweck: Für zum Weggehen und als Foto im Auto wenn man mal einen Schnappschuß machen will. Der Auslöseknopf ist etwas unsensibel zu bedienen. Vor allem Für das Scharfstellen.

Mycket liten kompaktkamera

larseinar, electroworld.se
14 December 2013
  • Summary: Fungerar alldeles utmärkt som snapshot-kamera, då den är så liten att den alltid finns till hands. Hyfsade bilder, mycket bra för att ta macro-bilder. Enda negativa är att man måste starta kameran för att titta på bilder, inte som andra kameror att man bara startar bildvisningen.
