TERRIBLE TERRIBLE CAMERA

By

I got this camera for xmas and I was very excited to use it. I started to use it, and I was soooooo mad because it is a terrible camera. The features are terrible and the quality of the photos are just terrible. In addition, the lens would not open all the way. DO NOT BUY THIS !! A WASTE OF MONEY!!!

Not MAC compatible

By

Just got this camera for Christmas and 1st time using it. It has great digital zoom clarity, even at 24 x's zoom. You need the right setting for the pics to turn out good. I would like to keep this camera and play it with some more but when I tried to view the pics and videos on my MAC, I found I can't play videos. Apparently you have to download software at a cost to use on a mac. The CD that comes with it has PHOTO fun studio on it but again not MAC friendly. I am also having trouble playing back videos on the camera. I am following the manuel directions and I got them to play back a couple of times after several tries but then couldn't get them to play back at all. Also I was disappointed in the plastic case. It feels cheap.

3rd Panasonic camera

By

This is my 3rd Panasonic camera over 6 years. The menus and control are familier and improved on each new version. My wife is able to pick any of the cameras and just use them. They are consistent in quality, constuction and materials used, great.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  How do you feel about shutter speed and clarity. I am mainly interested in taking wildlife, ie birds. Do you need a tripod for long distance shots, or only for darker shots?
TRUDY H  SO FAR I LOVE THE CAMERA. THAT IS WHY I GOT THE CAMERA ALSO IS TO TAKE PICTURES OF WILDLIFE WHEN WE GO TO ALASKA. GRANTED I HAVENT USED IT ALOT SINCE PURCHASE BUT NEVER NEEDED A TRIPOD SO FAR. ITS TAKEN REALLY GOOD PICTURES PRACTICING. WE HAVE BEEN TO ALASKA NOW 4 TIMES. WENT ON A BEAR VIEWING FLOAT PLANE TRIP THIS LAST TIME. SAW 30 BROWN BEAR FAIRLY CLOSE. GOT AMAZING PICTURES OF BEAR, MOOSE, AND CARIBOU. WE FLY INTO ANCHORAGE THEN DO ALOT OF HIKING. REALLY ENJOY TAKING WILDLIFE PHOTOS UP THERE.
Shopper  What is the lens hood used for?
LINDA P  I haven't used mine yet but I think it would be helpful when shooting in the sun.
