Summary: Distortions are really incredible. People's short legs, perhaps, can be controlled by careful grid aligning with some verticals if available, but you can do nothing about ugly horizontal stretching of anything off the picture's center.
OK camera, TERRIBLE customer service with Panasonic
25 November 2013
Summary: Camera might be OK, but customer service was TERRIBLE. I've never experienced anything like this. Over 5 months, going on 6, to receive a refund check for a camera that crapped out under warranty. While the camera worked (read on) it took OK pictures. In low light, it was very difficult to take decent pictures, even with the appropriate settings.
Three Panasonic cameras - all got dust on the sensor!

Summary: There is a lot I like about this camera - very nice video; zoom lens is amazing for the price. But it has taken me 3 Panasonic Lumixes to realize that they ALL get dust on the sensor, which totally ruins a lot of pictures. I can cover the spots sometimes with Corel Paint Shop, but videos are ruined. Fortunately I purchased the warranty with my last one so I hope I can get it fixed - as soon as my new Canon camera arrives.
Summary: I took a couple of photos with this camera and then placed it in a safe camera case. A few days later, I open it and the lcd screen is not working. I send it to Panasonic to be repaired under the warranty, they make a few useless "courtesy calls" back to tell me that "it will be sent to the technician" or "it has been sent to a technician", and next thing I know they ask me for $180 (more than what I paid for the camera!) to fix it.
