Short life

luvboox, Amazon
17 November 2015
  • 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.

Spots on your photos taken at night time

Raymond's_musing, Amazon
8 March 2014
  • Summary: Its true about the other reviews about the spots on photos taken during dark places. I used this camera on halloween, for some reason there were spots in my photo. During daylight or situations where there is ample light, I don't see it.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 Digital camera

Marty L., Amazon
24 September 2013
  • Summary: I loved this camera when I bought it in May 2011. Now, September 2013, I have sent it back to the company and told them do not fix it and do not send it back, but to use it to see if they can improve their product. First, it is a much larger point and shoot camera than others.

Dust on Sensor

Harlow Pinson, Amazon
8 August 2012
  • Summary: After a little over a year of use this camera is falling apart. Dust on the sensor is a constant problem, and this appears to be a known issue, though Panasonic continues to sell these.

good camera with design flaws

akroamer, Amazon
28 July 2012
  • Summary: This is a nice camera from the standpoint that it takes good pictures and is easy to use. However there are lots of cameras out there that are just as good and this one is quite stupidly designed. After 7 months of use dust got on the inside of the lens.

Disappointing - Not As Good As Previous Models

John Burness "DigitalJack", Amazon
14 April 2012
  • Summary: I got the ZS8 to replace a ZS3 which was (and still is) a wonderful camera except for a problem that I'll describe with taking videos. One review that I read said that the ZS8 solved this problem. It didn't. First of all let me say that both the ZS3 and the ZS8 are in general very good cameras.

Great pics, easy to use, easily gets dirt inside the lens

E. Davis, Amazon
18 March 2012
  • Summary: This is my second Panasonic camera. I've only used it a little so far, but so far the pics are great, it's easy to use, and the construction of the camera is as good or better than my earlier Panasonic.

worse than the zs3

user of the zs8, Amazon
15 October 2011
  • Summary: i own the zs3 and am very happy with the pic quality but when i started using the zs8 side by side i saw that the indoor quality of the zs3 was a lot better with the zs8 producing a crummy low quality picture

Decent little camera, but fatally crippled by dust issues

J. Notis, Amazon
3 June 2011
  • Summary: The bad: I've only been using the camera for a month (503 shots so far), and it's got so much dust in the lens and on the sensor that I think I'll try to return it. I've had lots of cameras over the years, and none has shown this kind of susceptibility to dust.

After brilliant predecssors, a disappointing camera

Eliot Pooh, Amazon
28 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camera as an upgrade to my Panasonic TZ5, which I absolutely loved. It took amazing pictures for two years, and I had become a fan of Panasonic cameras after also having used, albeit briefly, cameras like the ZS3 and the ZS7.
