Summary: It's great for portraits and everything the Leica lense make me vibrate with joy I love the wide lense . I bought mine in 2011 it has wonderful filters like the art and the black n white grain. I've enclose a pic I took with the art filter . Love this thing.
Summary: Great little camera with easy to adjust functions. Very portable and took excellent photos under various conditions. Only problem after thousands of photos - dust got into the lens mechanism, and I was told it would be cheaper to replace than to send it to Panasonic for repair.
Summary: I was really impressed with this camera when I first got it. Nice LCD screen, good zoom (although I wish I had found the shortcut to quickly zoom in all the way before going to yellowstone), and a decent mic if you only plan to use video on a rare occasion. Overall a very nice little camera.
Summary: Love this camera! Easy to use automatic settings. But also has manual settings if you want to get creative. Great zoom. Only complaint is that the colors are not always true to life. But that's true for all cameras in this price range.
Leica Wide Angle Lens and sturdy. GREAT point and shoot.

Summary: fantastic camera, sturdy, wide angle lense. Mine is a little "beat up" and will buy same camera again. easy to use you can take nite photos of fireworks with the scene feature. fits in your purse or backpack.
Terrible mic quality during video, poor low light concert shots, and dust collection in lens.
