While user opinions are often colored by what other camera they are used to, this camera is typically Panasonic in image style and quality. Despite being at the lower end of the range, the lens is excellent - sharp and clear with little distortion, fringing or corner vignetting. Unlike many low end cameras the images are not oversharpened with resulting annoying artifacts, and the three color settings - Natural, Standard [Canon?], and Vivid are well done. AWB is slightly warm which is better ...

I've had this camera for almost a year now and am continually pleased by it's combination of very good image and video quality. It's become my "take it with me wherever I go" camera.

Camera is almost really point and shoot. With the iA picture mode, the camera really ...

I'm using a Canon 400d and bought this Lumix for my daughter/wife. I've tried the camera today and these are my first impressions. First, I must say the camera is a real pleasure to use: fast, small, handy. You pick it up, point and shoot. Real simple. The build quality is good. The screen looks nice and works fine. The zoom is a bit akward: zooming too fast and not precise. The camera has lots of features: intelligent auto, shake reduction, different programs... Everything works very well ...
