Summary: I was attracted to the Panasonic Lumix DMC-XS3 by its retro design and exceptionally small size. It's so tiny, it fits into the palm of my hand and so lightweight, I felt it was a store display dummy. For such a tiny fellah, it packs a big punch; 2.7" LCD, 14 megapixels, MOS sensor, 5X optical zoom (and something called extra optical zoom which gets to 10X), and a wide angle lens.
Good value compact camera - ideal for quick snaps.

Summary: I'm really pleased with this great little camera. It was a replacement for a canon IXUS 100 that has stopped working after 5 years use. It is really compact and lightweight, it fits into any pocket and looks quite retro too. As with all panasonic cameras, it is well made and should last a long time. The picture quality is good for the price and suits my needs - I use a larger high zoom camera for a lot of my photography but keep this on me for quick snaps.
Summary: This is a brilliant product. I was going to buy a cheap video camera but a review on Amazon put me off and recommended the Panasonic. Really good advice. It is a really good camera and has an excellent video function too. It has really useful special effects including sepia and black and white for stills AND movies. As a very keen photographer I can't praise this highly enough. I hardly ever use my digital SLR anymore! This does it all.
Summary: For" fussy" photography I have my LX5. For "fun" photography I now have a DMC-XS3. It feels good, looks good, takes good photos and is flat," dinky " and a pretty hard" punching" featherweight..........even the stabiliser works fine. I RATHER LIKE THIS LITTLE BEAUTY.........*****!
Summary: Its been a week that I am using this camera. I already own a DSLR and hence wanted a point and click camera which is very slim so that I can carry it in my pocket everywhere I go. Of course not to forget descent images. Also to mention that I am not a fan of smart phone cameras though in recent times they have improved a lot and offers various image processing schemes on the spot. Hence I needed something to go with my iPhone. Then came across this product and bought it.
