Best nighttime and point and shoot camera. Love it!
4 January 2014
Summary: I had an older model of this same camera and loved it. This camera is awesome..takes great pictures in the night time setting (never ever did I have any camera that took great pictures at night)..I ended up with this model as I still had 2 newer batteries for my older model. I knew that I liked the panasonic with the lumix lens, so I just checked out which model still used the lumix batteries and wall charger that I still had.
Summary: I bought this for a family member who lost the one I gave her last year. I bought last year's camera on ebay as well. She liked the one I had. It is an easy camera to use and is still very compact. It also has a good zoom.
Summary: I wanted a small lightweight, REALLY GOOD CAMERA. For some time I have liked Panasonic products. They tend to be well made, logical and user-friendly in design, having clear and understandable manuals. I read lots of comments by users for this and other cameras of this size. I haven't had a chance to explore all the possible settings yet. The results of simple, let the camera figure it out shots are fine, sharp, excellent. The zoom works.
Great product, superior pictures, make sure charger and cables are included

Summary: It is a great camera. The battery charger and cable were not included in the item I purchased. So I had to oder after the fact...Be sure and read the whole package included part when making a purchase.
Little camera with big zoom, modified for IR photography by Kolari Vision.
9 December 2012
Summary: I originally bought this camera from Kolari Vision because I was interested in "night vision" equipment and the ability to take pictures in complete darkness with an IR light source. However, I've since fallen in love with the stunning daylight effects of IR photography. The small size and light weight means this camera goes where I go, while a larger heavier camera might not. Having the camera on person definitely lends itself to more interesting photo opportunities.
Summary: I have a DMC ZS10. I wanted another one to keep in my bedroom for grabbing pictures of wildlife in my backyard. This ZS8 was available at a good price so I bought it. It is a super camera. It has most of the features of a DSLR and has a good optical zoom. I have taken some good pictures with it and enlarged (after cropping) to 8x10 with excellent results.
Bought it for someone else, but she's seems to be happy
5 September 2012
Summary: Bought it for someone else really. I checked on the details and it looked like a good camera. my friend doesn't know much about cameras either, but another friend of her's has the same model and he's very happy with it. I saw some of the pictures he took and they looked great!!
