Summary: I am a pro photographer using Digital backs and Pro DSLR's. I wanted a point and shoot for everyday images as I'm an artist and use photos jb my work. This camera is so bad I coyldnt believe they even risked their reputation releasing it to the public.
Summary: Fantastic camera. works in all light conditions. Amazing zoom range. Excellent movies with much better sound than anything this small should be able to deliver. I have gone through many stages of photography over the years from carrying 3 camera bodies and a bank of lenses to large bulky digital...
Summary: This is a fantastic camera. It is compact but very powerful. It has many good features and it can be used by novices or expert photographers because of the automatic and advance shooting modes. The zoom is really great. Also, the macro shots are sharp and easy to take.
Summary: Bought this for traveling and well pleased - l love the camera. Photo quality is excellent both on automatic settings and the many manual choices. Camera is easy to use immediately, but will take time to learn the extended functions.
Summary: I bought this to film my son pitching in slow motion and to analyze the footage at PowerChalk.com. There's a trick to getting it to take 120 frame per second footage. You can't dial that in with the direct settings.
Summary: I won't go into the heavy-duty photo-wonk stuff - that's much more expertly covered by lots of other reviews here. For me, the picture quality is FANTASTIC (see attached picture - that was shot fully hand-held at a distance of approximately 8-10 feet - data pegs it as ~20x zoom.
Summary: I love this little camera. I do a lot of hiking and backpacking so the tiny size is important.... no longer do I need to lug a whole camera bag full of lenses to do what this does. The whole thing weighs less than a single lens in my camera bag.
Summary: Really good. Good clear pics and easy to handle. Still learning the settings, but the auto is easy and the zoom is fantastic. Will probably use this camera more then the last one that was a camcorder with a flip out screen.
In my opinion this may be the very best Panasonic camera ever -- for us at least

Summary: We have several Panasonic cameras ranging from tiny, inexpensive pocketable ones to bigger bulkier ones in the FZ series. In my opinion this may be the very best Panasonic camera ever -- for us at least. What I love about it: 1.
This would be a GREAT camera if it wasn't for the truly abysmal support

Summary: This would be a GREAT camera if it wasn't for the truly abysmal support. The instructions, documentation and technical support are pretty much useless. Took me 6 calls to tech support to get the much-touted wifi connection done.
