Summary: A friend has a Lumix and even though I use a Canon EOS, his photos could always match mine or best them. Most of the time having a small point and shoot is the easiest way to do your photography when having a large camera is cumbersome, not practical for having a camera with you all the time for spontaneous shots and puts your pricey equipment in situations for either equipment damage or theft.
Summary: Bought this camera to replace my Kodak EasyShare, which I was happy with except for "closeups". Being 60+, the "learning curve" was intimidating, but once I set aside time to actually read how to use it, it turned out to be very easy. I am very happy with this purchase. It will be the last camera I ever buy...does everything I need it to do. Maybe I'll tackle that iPhone thing next...
Summary: The perfect traveling companion. Pro:s Great clear pictures 1A automatic mode sets almost every thing anti blur works fine in low light long lasting battery great movies fits in pockets 8x zoom and wide angle make for great photo's Con limited flash range of 8 feet
Summary: I first saw this camera in a store, but still wanted to shop around. I am still getting use to all the features on it. However it takes great pictures and I love how easy it is to transfer them to my computer. SO SIMPLE! In fact when I showed my mother in law it. She wanted one. So I went back online and purchased the same one for her. Now a friend of ours wants the same camera. What does that tell you? :) GREAT PRICE hands down.
Summary: Got a NIKON Coolpix for Christmas and the lens cover broke after 3 uses so I retuned it and got the Lumix to replace it. I get amazing photos even at long range. (this mini camera has an 8X optical zoom and 10X digital zoom. After dozens of uses, the automatic lens cover still works perfectly. A great buy for the money.
Summary: I love this camera! It's the perfect point and shoot for an amateur photographer. It's small and compact with a sleek and stylish design and has a 2.7" LCD screen. It's not a touch screen, which I personally prefer, since touch screens don't seem to last as long. My favorite feature is its 25mm Leica lens, which is one of the best lenses money can buy.
