Excerpt: My wife wanted a new camera before we went on an overseas trip late last year. She knew exactly what she wanted. It had to be compact, white, have a grip and a reasonably long telephoto. Image quality was not a consideration! This camera gets pretty good reviews. It got damaged last week, with some pressure on the the lens protector cover, thus it is refusing to fully retract. Thank God. I'll be glad to see it go.
Summary: Love this Lumix camera. Have always been very fond of the Lumix Panasonic cameras because of their Leica lenses. Great shots and wireless mode. I carry this in my purse and us always with me. This is the 4 th one I buy.
Summary: I have many small cameras, but this is the one I seem to grab most. I am no longer willing to drag professional equipment around as the small stuff has gotten so much better. Wish it shot RAW but don't want the expense of upgrading to the ZS40. I'll wait for prices to drop after the next model after that arrives.
Summary: I have a tendency to be too physical with my cameras.When I need a replacement I turn to a newer version of the Lumix. The zoom is excellent and the quality very good. The retouch feature is a plus. I will buy another when I've damaged this one beyond repair.
Summary: I bought this as a surprise for my wife before she goes on a trip. The description of the Lumix doesn't begin to explain all the features that the camera actually has. It gives the ability to take some fantastic photos, and then manipulate them in a variety of manures if you should choose. I'm very happy with this purchase, and will recommend it to anyone who loves to take pictures.
Summary: I had a smaller Lumix in the past and loved it. When this one arrived, I wasn't sure if I would like the size. It is a little bigger but still fits in my little running pack. I really like it though. The expanding lens is really helpful to zoom in. I have been taking amazing pics with this little camera.
Summary: The sharp, long zoom lens is handy for wild life photography. This is the best camera that I have ever owned - and I have owned many of them from the Leicas, Rolleis, Nikons, Cannons, Fujis, etc. I like the GPS and WiFi features, too.
