The Panasonic Lumix camera is a truly wonderful piece of hardware. The whole camera is a masterpiece. It has 7.2 megapixels inside of it working with a superb 3x optical zoom. The display on the camera is just as good. It is an LCD screen but does make the pictures look worse than they acctually do (if you look at pictures of yourself on this camera it truly does destroy your self esteme, but that just shows how detailed the pictures are). The camera is also very compact and comes with a nice wrist strap so if your one of those people who have a tendice to drop things, you wont drop this. The face detection system is pretty awsome, I have taken a photo of about 15 faces before and it picked up all of them with there own focus square which makes any group photo look as good as any proffesional one. As you can see by the picture the design is pretty dam sexy, the black one is much nicer than the the silver one. I wouldnt reccomend this camera though if you are a serious photographer as you can get way better but its still nice if you a general camera user who likes good quality pictures.
