Prosleek, elegant, sharp, attractive

Conspicture quality is not that good

Panasonic has dissappointed us with this product of theirs. It Simply doesnt look to be Panasonic. I have used many 8 mega pixel cameras and this seems to be the worst one. But if you go for the looks and easy handling camera than you could have this as your choice. It has a stylish slim compact...

ConsDoesn't take good pictures

Having had this camera for a little over 5 months now, i can safely say it is probably one of the worst i have ever had the misfortune to use. Handling and feel. top marks for these, it is a cool looking camera, and very useful for taking with you. That aside it is hardly what you purchase a...

I got this camera for christmas a year ago and as somebody not particularly technilogically competant, I find it extremely easy to use. I have experimented with the different settings available (such as soft skin, party, landscape) and find that some of them produce excellent photos. In fact...

Conscamera case slightly difficult to fit

Very lightweight and comes in a variety of colours which makes it that little bit more personal. Comes with a detailed user book which may take some sifting through but gives you advice on how to get the best out of the product and discover features which aren't publically advertised. Fantastic...

ConsNoise on large prints

This is an excellent camera and for the price it s great value for money as well. The first thing you notice about the camera when you pick it up is the size of the LCD screen on the back, it could not be any bigger without making the camera bigger. Straight away when I started using this camera...

And I...
