      Comments about Lumix DMC-FX35 Digital Camera (Black):

      I just got my Lumix DMC-FX35. I replaced a DMC-LC33. I love the new camera. The photos look great. It starts up quickly, and the lens no longer comes out when you are uploading to the PC. It does not have a viewfinder, but it has a big screen, and for what I use it for (kid shots), I don't miss that. I like having a button to toggle back and forth between viewing and taking pictures, and this new version is so compact. I look forward to learning how to do movies.

        Great for general picture taking. Love the small size.
        Still learning about all the features. sometimes the screen is a little hard to see in sunlight, but i think there are some adjustments for that. Just need to figure out how to do that. Might even have to open the manual!

              Just got back from Korea and Japan and everything worked perfectly.
              The 2nd battery was a life saver!
              Thanks for all your help, I'll be back!

                  Comments about Lumix DMC-FX35 Digital Camera (Silver):

                  I wanted a p&s to carry around with me, because a DSLR just isn't practical for that. I've only had it for a few days so I haven't had time to check out all of the functions yet. But from what I have seen I'm very happy with this camera. I am use to using a DSLR, so a p&s can sometimes be disappointing. I chose the Panasonic because it has the Leica 25mm lens. I am impressed by the image quality & I like the wide angle. If you are a casual user you may not notice the difference in image quality, but if you are an experienced user, you'll like this one.

                  So far I have been very satisfied with this camera. It's easy to use, looks good, fits well in the hand. I wish that it had more manual features- I know it's a point and click, but it's a little harder to get exactly what you want than I might like. Other than that, the picture quality is excellent and I would highly recommend this camera. Oh, and it really does fit in your pocket- it's amazing, so if you are at an event you can easily put it away and not have it be too bulky.

                    This camera is all I expected. With the ultra wide angle lens and the high resolution the need for zoom diminishes greatly. The problem of not having enough space to shoot a picture is virtually eliminated. The problems associated with taking pictures of large groups of people indoors (like prom groups and family reunions) are a thing of the past. It is very easy to use out of the box. The Leica lens give amzing clarity.

                      This is a wonderful pocket/purse camera. It takes clear, sharp pictures, while being sleek and compact. I was told the Lecia lens is worth every penny, and they were right! The quality of the lens makes all the difference, and the Lumix line has the best to offer on the market. The menu offers a lot of options, while being user friendly.

                        I bought this camera for my mum when she was going on a trip to Israel. She found the camera really easy to operate. Though she is not a gifted photographer by any means, she came out with some great pictures. The depth of field on this cam is great in the auto scene selection mode and there is virtually no shutter lag.

                          I'm still getting to know the camera but the menu options are very easy to figure out. I recently took photos outdoors when the sun was directly above. But the photos came out great. The camera adjusted and nothing was too bright. The photos were crisp and beautiful. Overall, I would say you were getting the best of all possible worlds - high mega pixel resolution, wider lens size, and plenty of zoom.

                          The on and off switch couldn't make turning it on/off any easier.
                          Normal picture mode is easier than intelligent iso mode.
                          Many scene selections-i recommend party for indoors.
                          I have to keep my exposure up a third.
                          Great amount of megapixels.
                          Annoying little red light on intel. iso mode.
                          Just about everything can be turned off or on.
                          Wide angle.
                          Face selection.
                          Goes on and off quickly.
                          No viewfinder, though I haven't found i needed it yet.
                          You must zoom Before pressing record in video mode.
                          Better than my previous, old Olympus.

                                Great overall camera - intelligent mode works very well and the wide lens really captures great shots in small areas. I like the cameras movie mode and it works well with my Apple Mac.
                                I wish Zoom was available during movie recording

                                  I have been waiting for a small simple camera with a wide (25mm) lens for a along time. The 4x optical extends to 100mm and more 3mp and less. Leica lens & 10.1 mp. Enough said!
