GREAT for the first year........ then, not so great

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: This is my third Panasonic Lumix camera... I LOVE them. However I have a major issue with it. After about a year / year and half of regular usage, random black marks show up when using the video feature. It has happened with all three of my cameras so I just assumed I was misusing it. However, with my latest purchase, I went out of my way to care for it and it has never been dropped. So when the black marks showed up, I totally lost faith in my beloved camera.

  • Excerpt: Buy this camera 5 months ago I really like because besides having good design is very easy to handle
  • Pros: I like the image resolution, the duration of the stack, the quality of your photographs.
  • Cons: It could improve the menu to use it more quickly.

Great pix, poor battery needing replacement

girlypooo, Ebay
9 August 2012
  • Summary: Pro: Great photos, easy to use, small, easy download, overall very good. Con: Battery failed after 92 days on a 90 day warranty. Replaced at my cost, and failed again after a couple of months. I'm charging it using the Panasonic-provided wall charger, when I get the signal from the camera that the battery is low. It's kept in a case and the "on" switch was never accidentally turned on, and battery was never drained beyond the notice of low battery.

Somewhat fast camera but grainy images!

M. Stone, Amazon
6 January 2012
  • Summary: I wanted to like this camera after reading so many rave reviews about the Panasonic Lumix line. At this point I've tried what seems like every P&S digital camera known to man (except for a Fuji or Nikon). I've had a Kodak, Samsung, several Sonys and 3 Canons. I've come to the conclusion that I'm just going to have to keep using my older model Sonys (a DSC-S75 and a DSC-V1) for regular everyday snapshots of people and pets, etc.

would never buy a camera that does not have a view finder

albertdussault, Ebay

  • Summary: The problem with this camera is that in the light you can not see the screen. In the light the glare prevents even a hint of the picture that you want to snap from being previewed. The camera would be a heck of a lot better if it had a view-finder and a screen that could be seen outdoors. In doors it is not a bad little camera.

User Review

Jim_H_, DP Review
20 July 2011
  • Excerpt: I bought the ZS8 as a "take everywhere" camera to accompany my GF1 on our trip to Greece. The ZS8 performed pretty well in P, A, S, M modes with ISO 100 and iExposure set to Low. This was my default setting for the camera most of the time, IIRC. I also dialed in -1/3 stop exposure compensation most of the time while in P, A, and S modes. And of course I changed applicable settings when necessary to get better results under certain conditions.

Failed within 2 years

Ann P. Dukanovic "anni-d", Amazon
6 October 2013
  • Summary: I was initially very pleased with this camera , which was purchased as a point and shoot for use when I felt my DSLR was not needed. However, within 21 months, this has failed, I have a black shadow on one corner of all my photos, and the lens sometimes does not open when you switch the camera on. All in all, very disappointing for a compact camera which was not a cheap purchase.

everything but the picture....

simonb53, Amazon
18 August 2012
  • Summary: I had been looking to upgrade from my old nikon4100 ... only because I was after a better zoom and a bigger view screen....I wasn't too fussed about the number of mb's on offer.....4 has proved more than enough and the picture quality on the nikon brilliant. Which is where the panasonic let's itself down. Brilliant zoom. Good sized screen. Well built. Contrary to another review, the silver model in my opinion is much smarter thanthe glossy black one.
