I was already familiar with the Panasonic Lumix. I had a smaller version that was given to me. I purchased this camera with the old one in mind. I liked the fact that the camera had 32GB of storage and it came with an Accessory Bundle. She was truly surprised and pleased to get the camera for her birthday.
I usually shoot with a prosumer DSLR, but didn't like carrying it around with me everywhere. Although this camera is still lacks some of the speed and features of my DSLR, I carry it almost everywhere I go; thus using it more than my DSLR. I wish it were a bit smaller, but other than that, I love this thing. For me it was worth the price, but those who have no problems with some deficiencies of cell phone cameras will not see the value or need of this camera.
