Nice camera for it's size and extreme zoom capability.

Summary: I like this camera but had to return it due to problems. This was purchased as an open box, so I can't complain about the camera itself. I have a large format camera and this was purchased (due to the price) as a glove box camera for emergencies.
Summary: Still using this camera as of 11/21/2013, and still working great. However, it's been eclipsed by newer models (the XS20 that we've since bought) but if you want a good quality camera for a beginner or someone who doesn't need a whole bunch of bells and whistles, this one's for you.
Summary: I love love loved this little camera and it served me well for almost three years. Then it got dust on the sensor. So I learned from YouTube how to take it apart and remove the dust. I congratulated myself on being so handy. Three months later, dust on the sensor again. Fixed it again.
Summary: So good I now own two. Very sharp pictures and easy to use. Video is nice but acvhd mode required separate program on Mac to convert. I have been using Borosoft conversion software. You don't have to use acvhd as there is another mode for video. It may be that Imovie 11 will read acvhd so check.
Summary: the camera itself is a solid digital camera. it's made in japan (not china, like 99% of digital cameras), which was a key factor in my purchase. HOWEVER, panasonic's warranty and customer service are terrible.
