Dust on CCD

Gift Card Recipient, Amazon
28 March 2011
  • 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.

broke down

B. Townsend "batboy", Amazon

  • Summary: Sorry to report but my camera stopped functioning the other day after moderate use over 8 months. Battery is fully charged and the screen lights up but the lens won't open. There has been no drops or bangs to the camera to my knowledge, so the malfunction is probably a manufacturing issue for this camera type with 8x optical zoom. Disappointed greatly by this failure and will move onto another brand.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZR1 did not deliver

Kindle Customer, Amazon
3 February 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this camera for my wife to replace her Sony Cybershot I lost while in Mexico. I selected this camera for it's large optical zoom range, the ability to zoom while taking videos, it's small size, and it's reported ratings. Ultimately I wanted decent quality photos and decent quality video. Unfortunately the photo and video quality were unacceptable. Indoor photos were grainy and generally of poor quality. The video was glitchy and also of poor quality.

Noise at all ISO settings

Brummers, Amazon
23 December 2009
  • Summary: There's a lot of good things which can be said about this camera but unfortunately all are over shadowed by the fact that the picture quality is poor, very poor. Noise (grainy quality) is visible at all settings above 80 ISO, so it's difficult to get good results in anything but the brightest of situations. I have used much cheaper and much older compact cameras that produce far sharper and clearer pictures. Very disappointing.

Nicht haltbar...

W. Müller, Amazon
9 August 2012
  • Summary: Nachdem ich bei einem Freund die Kamera sah gefiel Sie mir so gut das ich Sie auch kaufte(279€). Anfangs alles o.k.,nach Ablauf der Garantie (2Jahre)war ein Fremdkörper im Objektiv (nur beim Reinzoomen der Fotos erkennbar und nach 2 Jahren und 3 Monaten bekomme ich nur noch die Meldung "Systemfehler(Schärfe einstellung). Seltsamerweise waren bei meinem Freund die gleichen Fehler in exakt der gleichen Zeit vorgefallen(nach der Garantie).

Attention, fragile!!

  • Summary: Après avoir eu ces dernières années des compacts Canon (Ixus 50 et Ixus 80), j'ai décidé de me tourner vers une marque proposant un appareil avec une meilleure sensibilité en basse lumière, ce qui n'était pas le point fort des Canon. L'envoi de l'appareil s'est déroulé de façon irréprochable et j'ai pu prendre l'appareil en main pendant 2 mois.

Sehr schön aber schlechte Fotos

SellOut, Amazon
3 October 2009
  • Summary: Habe mir die Kamera vor kurzem geholt und noch am gleichen Tag zurückgebracht! Die Bilder waren sehr schlecht, haben extrem gerauscht (auch wenn man die mega pixel anzahl begrenzt) und haben auf verschiedene licht quellen geradezu allergisch reagiert. die bilder erinnerten mich teilweise an Bilder von sehr guten Handy Kameras. Das Leica Objectiv scheint das Licht nicht wirklich gut aufzunehmen.
