Summary: I used this camera for just under three years every day at work. I ran over 17k exposures through it and then passed it down to my Assistant when I upgraded to a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS 10. ¡It continues to work very well every day!
Summary: Using not for too long, should say that it's really fabulous camera I used ever. Of course I'm talking about compact digital cameras. Great features, quality fitting, long time of battery and beautiful pics&video!
Excellent Ebayer, very well packed and was as expected.

Summary: I bought this camera for my parents after searching through millions of point and shoot cameras. I did my homework, but i'd never used it before. I had it shipped to them while they were on vacation for my mothers birthday. What can I saw, not only did they love it. But now my brother wants one. I still have not used it myself, however my non-tech savvy parents and brother think it's incredible.
Summary: I purchased this camera just over a year ago. All of the sudden there are black spots on my pictures due to dust on the ccd. Panasonic said it would cost $120 to fix. A friend of mine had the same problem with his same type of camera. Also, Panasonic's customer service said they have received calls on the same issue. This is poor customer service for something that is clearly a major design flaw. I will never buy another Panasonic camera.
Summary: Purchased this to be my primary camera for real estate appraisals. The wide angle, zoom, strong flash and small size were the main things I was searching for. Generally the performance has met my expectations, but there is apparently a design flaw which permits dust to get inside the lens system. Within a few months of use I noticed a speck of dust on an internal lens.
Summary: I am strictly a point-and-shoot photographer and this camera does all I could ever ask. Great video and trouble-free photos. A quick recharge was important to me and this has it. I would definitely recommend this camera!
Summary: Gets the great reviews for a reason it works as advertised. Nice sturdy fast shooting unit. Photo quality will hang with the best of them,video too. I like mine especially cause it slides in and out of my shirt pocket so easy-makes me WANT to carry it. Think its a nice bang for your buck refurbished or used.
Summary: I had one of these and needed to replace it, going with the refurbished this time. This camera was hard to locate, and new ones still on market were very pricey. My disappointment was loss of speed in taking the pictures that my previous same model had; my favorite feature to capture my grandchildren.
