Advantages: A great all-rounder
Disadvantages: zoom is perhaps slightly limited in comparison to other cameras
I was given this camera as a present about 4 or 5 years ago and I still absolutely love it. It really could be brand new still today in terms of the technology and it is in excellent working order. My previous camera was a Sony and unfortunately had a manufacturing fault which meant that the display screen died after only a year of use. My Lumix however is a sturdy reliable camera. It is 10 megga pixels which means it has a good level of clarity and it is possible for images to be blown up effectively.
I like taking pictures but am certainly not a camera buff or expert. The Lumix is therefore ideal for me as it is really easy to use and very intuitive and logical in the way that the settings have been laid out. There are not too many confusing buttons to press and the view finding screen is nice and large and produces a high quality image. The camera also has a great night mode setting which produces a really good image, better than some of the other cameras I have seen I think. However in comparison to some of my friend's cameras I do not think the zoom is quite as powerful as some other cameras. Although I have noticed that the quality of some of the zoomed images on other cameras are not as good as the quality on this camera, so I think picture quality is something that Panasonic never compromise on.
There is the usual timer delay mode, and also an autofocus zoom for close range objects and an autofocus that compensates for hand wobble.
The camera can also record video which is a great feature, however it's sound recording quality is good but not great.
Overall I would say that it is a very easy to use, reliable, good quality camera that is also quite versatile and has all of the basic key features that you would want from a digital camera. A very good safe buy in my opinion.
Summary: A quality, reliable easy to use camera
