Great photos until dust show up inside lens; very horrible service! Do not buy.

Richard H., Amazon

  • Summary: I have 2 of these Lumix DMC-ZS8 cameras. They take great photos until dust, within less than 6 months show up inside the lens and cannot be removed unless one take apart the camera. Extremely irritating!

Good camera BUT!

Minkfield, Amazon

  • Summary: The "one star" is for Panasonic customer service. The "DMC" line are decent cameras and this is the second one we purchased. The first one lasted four years then stopped working. I figured It just wore out so bought a new DMC-ZS8 which is basically a newer model.

Poor quality, lousy company support

Michael Taylor "Ancient mariner", Amazon
17 July 2013
  • Summary: This was my fourth Panasonic ultra-zoom camera. I wrote an earlier gushing review of the ZS6, and I've even had a couple of photo's in Panasonic's "Focus on Australia" (a competition for Lumix users there - I spend about four months a year working down-under). But this will be my last.

Does not live up to Lumix reputation

Careful Buyer, Amazon
16 July 2013
  • Summary: I couldn't wait to get a Lumix, but I guess not all Lumix models live up to the Lumix reputation. I got this after someone dropped my Canon Powershot and dented the lens so it wouldn't retract anymore. I figured it was time to trade up, but after a few weeks it was clear I had traded down.

DON'T BUY THIS CAMERA ...

Sandro Martinez Placencia, Amazon
12 June 2013
  • Summary: After using this camera for about 1 year, dust started to appear in the pictures I took. For what I read it seems it's a problem in the fabrication facility. It only got worst and worst week after week.

Takes Nice Pictures But Defective Camera

JLAFLA "ja139", Amazon
30 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera in July 2011 and it takes excellent pictures. Recently it will not connect with the USB cable to my computer. I called Panasonic and they told me it was probably a defective cable. I bought a new one for approximately $10 including shipping.

DUST

  • Summary: Love the picture quality. Fantastic. But the dust issue requires taking the thing apart and cleaning off the sensor far too regularly.

Junk. Dust on photos

calart, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: Google this model to see how many users report dust entering the camera through the extended lens and ruining their photos. Some report bad dealings with warranty coverage. I did not bother trying. Finally the multiple dust blurs became too numerous and I have junked this camera.

poor focus, color and sharpness

  • Summary: I will not be recording my memories with this camera- dissatisfed and looking for something else. The rest of my family has the DMC-zs7 and this does not compare at all.

Same problem with three different cameras.

Tony, Amazon
24 September 2012
  • Summary: Bought this camera in June, 2011. In November 2011 dark spots started appearing on the image. I sent it in for repair under warranty and received back a refurbished replacement. Five months later in April, 2012 the replacement camera developed the same issue with spots on the image.
