Dust issue on sensor..beware!

K. Hansen, Amazon
21 January 2015
  • Summary: Beware of the dust bunnies...either learn to clean the sensor yourself, pay someone big bucks to clean it or get another camera. I love the quality of the photos, but it now has a dust spot... This makes for a very nasty situation, and Panasonic needs to clean up its act.

Lousy tech support

Tina from Brooklyn, Amazon
26 April 2014
  • Summary: The camera is ok but the one star is for the terrible Panasonic tech support. First the printed manual is eliminated and then when I email for a problem answer I am told to call an 800 number. I call the 800 number I am told I would have to pay $7.00 for an answer. So, buyer beware!

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

Richard H., Amazon
24 November 2013
  • 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
1 October 2013
  • 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, 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.
