I like Panasonic point and shoot cameras and this is my 4th purchase. I am finding this camera more challenging as I learn about exposure, shutter speed, and lighting. I have not figured out the shutter lens and its speed so most pictures are hit and miss. The video has a lower volume than the others and I never know how much I hear in its replay. The aspects I really like are the distance and close up shots. I am reading photography books and asking other photographers for help. This is not a camera for beginners.
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.
I have only just received my camera so I haven't had time to take any "real" shots. I've just been playing around with the features. So far I love having the different types of pictures; animated, watercolor, etc. I bought the camera to chronicle the next year leading up to my daughter's wedding. I'll try to come back at some point and add more comments to my review.
This camera is everything and more than advertised. I managed to snag it when the price was very low, so that sweetened the deal even more. I'm able to use all my lenses from Rebel Xti that I have purchased through the years. The only minor negative I have is the wireless feature; it's a bear to setup.
