I bought this camera in July 2004. My idea was to get a camera that gave good quality pictures and was small enough to carry in my pocket without being seen, as cost-effective as possible. As far as one can tell for his first digital camera, I think it takes good quality pictures. I found this camera for about 130 Euros (about the same in US dollars - because it was discontinued, I suppose), and I think it is a very good deal at that price. Problems: It has a proprietary battery (instead of ...

I bought this excellent camera at a very low discounted (and discontinued) price, as a "happy snapper" for my children. I had read reviews about the other range of Panasonic cameras and was considering by a high-end model, particularly because of their great Leica optics. But i cound not find any reviews about this camera For the low price, i thought it would be ideal for the children and their school trips, scouting weekends, parties, etc...but first i tried a few shots myself and was really ...

The F7 is a relativly good camera. For 350$ I wouldn't expect anything better. The image quality is excellent for 2 megapixel, it's sharp and clear. Macro focus is also very clean, which I really love in this camera. My problems with it, are the lack of manual features: The focus- it's so hard focusing on a flower, when the camera keep trying to focus on the background, and aperture- I had to come up with some tricks to override it. Overall it's a really nice camera, good worth for the money, ...

I purchased my F7 as my first DC. I have been impressed with the picture quality both on monitor and printout. The camera captured high speed action images extremely well for a camera in the price range and available features. My only complaint (very slight) is the access to required functions through the LCD and the low battery life. Apart from these minor pains the camera is an excellent point and shoot and can surprise with the quality of images produced. I replaced my ageing SLR with the ...

Well this is my first digital camera so its hard to tell if its generally a good or bad camera. I have found that in a brightly lit room, or outside on a sunny day, this camera works very well producing good image quality. I've only ever had one lot of images printed out. They were from a formal and they turned out quite well. These photos were taken at night and i was happy with how they turned out. In the first few days i took lots of photos of flowers and trees etc. This camera ...

I've had the F7 for several months now. It can be picked up for fairly low prices as it is being replaced by the 3 mp F1. There aren't a lot of nice features to the F7 to speak of. The zoom, UI, and operation are sub-par. Most notably the UI requires a considerable amount of digging through menus to alter settings. But this does make it a good camera for beginners as there isn't a whole lot to play around with on the outside. It is a well designed camera from an aesthetics standpoint. ...

There seems to be little substance to the above reviews. I bought this camera after not doing a great deal of research and regret it. It's a nice small build with convenient size and excellent looks, but I have two main problems; 1) image quality, and 2) clanky menu system. i'm going to take mine back - i'm a 35mm slr photographer that thought i'd at least get moderate quality for holiday snaps from a compacy digital, but was left quite disappointed by the less than ordinary image quality. ...

I just bought this camera a week ago after loosing my Canon IXUS 330 (Powershot S330) at my work Christmas party (very drunk). I work at Officeworks as a Business Machines Specialist and have had a Panasonic Rep. come to our store when they introduced there Lumix range. We were all happy with what we saw and with using the Leica lens and with Panasonics reliability and quality with any electrical products, well we were excited. So i went out and bought the F7 as a cheap ($580AU) compensation ...

Have been using this camera for about 6 months. I like the compact size, go anywhere, easy to carry profile. Menu structure is straight forward and easy to use. Things I wish it had, are a faster response when taking photos and a bigger memory (I had upgraded mine to 64M) I shoot most of my snaps using the mid-resolution setting and am happy with the quality once downloaded onto a computer. I find a 2 Megapixel camera is fine for what I do. This is a great little camera for everyday use ...

Just an ordinary digital camera, nothing special to mention.If I have another choice, no more this camera. Problems: Panasonic is not an expert of digital camera, so the product may be not the best.
