After so much of research and comparisons with other brands in this range I bought this camera and after using it I can say that I made a good choice and decision. It has everything which a good camera should have like: Face detection, good zoom, amazing picture quality and a decent battery life. If you are looking for a low budget camera with good features, then go for this camera.
Most people are not familiar with Lumix, I have always used Panasonic cams from my early school days...they make pleasant pics...I think panasonic cams are much better compared to the other (point & shoot)level of famous brands ...I have tried the other brands too but this brand does not disappoint, best assured known for its quality...:)
This a really nice camera. Amazing image quality with 14 mega pixels. I recorded my college events and fests with this camera. everyone just loooked great and they all loved it. It is not expensive too, worth every penny.
Its amazing for family outdoor shoot, best quality, and what a video quality as it is a HD. Best camera at this price please buy it collect your memorable moments, battery life is durable, it has sexy look specially in black color, handy for use.
I am really satisfied. This is very good camera with really good features. The best thing about this camera is that it does not drain very quickly like the other battery does. I tested its flash by switching off the light and turning the fan on and then clicked the picture. The fan's picture was static. There was no blurriness at all. Next i tried testing the zooming function. I kept a box with some sentences printed on it at about 10 feet far and clicked the picture. To my surprise i could read each and every letter clearly. I also zoomed it to max and i could see my neighbor's house clearly which was just across the road. Next i tried zooming a already clicked picture and even after full zoom the picture did not showed pixilation. Now i tried different modes of shooting in it and every mode was functioning properly. Overall its a very good camera and not many camera has so many features at this price tag. Canon, Nikon and Sony has the same features at a higher price. If you don't want to spend too much on a camera then this will be your best bet. Go for it!
