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.
Summary: Who needs a smart phone when you can have a stylish, accomplished piece of kit like this? Very advanced pocket camera easy to use, quality lens plenty of fun with camera settings and great price.
Summary: Fantastic camera!! I consider myself technically challenged but I can use this! High resolution results and enough manual abilities for those who want a bit of a challenge. I use it on AUTO needless to say and this dear little camera sorts everything out. Love it.
Summary: Good for everything except photographing in dim light where it will be very noisy. Great HD videos too. You can't take a picture if you don't have a camera on you. Better than mobile phone cameras.
