This is the first Panasonic digital camera I've bought, and I'm quite pleased with it. It's very easy to use, the menu works really well, and even novices can figure it out quickly. It's small and compact, easy to carry around, which is useful for vacations. Takes no time to start, so you don't have to wait for it to load or anything, and it takes really high quality pictures in most conditions!
The optical zoom is excellent, and the camera takes really sharp pictures on even the maximum zoom! There's also an electronic zoom if you need to use that.
For a camera that takes pictures with this high a zoom, and good quality, I'm extremely happy! I'd suggest you get it if you want these specific features!

Hi I ordered this camera a couple days ago, I wish there was a more detailed review on here :(, still your words sound encouraging. thanks.

I need to buy a camera and there could have been more about what the camera could do.
