Comments about Lumix DMC-FX75 Digital Camera (Sliver):

Did some research before buying this camera and was pleased with performance. I find the images a little noisy for my liking, even at ISO80 during the day the shots were lacking detail when zooming in to check small details. However, compared to an Olympus STYLUS TOUGH-8010 that my friend had when we were both shooting pictures on Heart Island I was able to capture much better low light shots and the wide lens allowed for better shots of scenery. Battery seems pretty decent, I was able to shoot about 150 shots and about 5 minutes of video before the battery even dropped a bar. Touch screen is easy to use and fairly simple to navigate to get desired results during shooting. I did find the screen a little to dull at times when shooting during bright daylight hours ( if the suns beating down on the camera you're likely not going to be able to see the screen at all until you get some shade or completely shield it. Overall this is a great camera if had at a good price, not much out there that can compete with it's feature set and capabilities.

    Comments about Lumix DMC-FX75 Digital Camera (Sliver):

    I got this as a Mother's Day gift for my wife. She wanted a camera that was simple to use and would take the picture without a lot of complications, the essence of "Point and Shoot". This camera with it's very wide apperature takes great shots in all kinds of conditions. We are getting very few blurry photos from this camera. My wife is very content with it.

          This camera was really easy to figure out how to use. I was a little nervous about the touch screen at first but I got used to it quickly and like it now. The pictures I have taken all have been crisp and clear. I have taken some video as well and have been happy with the results. I have always had larger cameras in the past so I especially like the compact size of this one.

          Comments about Lumix DMC-FX75 Digital Camera (Black):

          I have been an amateur photographer now for some 50 years, starting with a Kodak box-camera to Nikon SLRs and upon winning a coolpix in 2000 switched to the digital format. Being a Nikon and canon follower through all these years, the need for an affordable digital camera motivated me to get the Lumix. It is a reasonably small camera with great features, good picture quality. The zoom function is pretty smooth and less jerky than other comparable small cameras. I did not find its image stabilization to be very effective or at least consistently effective, and I miss the optical viewfinder which my canon powershot had. It really becomes a hit and miss when shooting in broad daylight. I will try to rig up a sun-shade around the screen to make it usable.

          The flash though small is reasonably powerful and illuminates evenly, even in the extreme wide-angle (24 mm equivalent which adds a nice perspective to photos).

          For a price of 159 dollars, it is still a great bargain. I love the slight softening that Leica V-S lenses are designed with. Great for portraits etc.

            Comments about Lumix DMC-FX75 Digital Camera (Black):

            Excellent camera for those on-the-go moments when you need a solid pocket sized camera to get a good quality photo but don't want to be lugging your full framed SLR. The newer feature of being able to zoom in on subject while shooting HD video is also a fantastic improvement over the previous FX model I owned. In the first few weeks of using it I think I like the touch screen-it seems to speed up the usual tasks between shooting such as previewing shots and changing settings. No serious draw backs with this model. The usual limitations of this type of camera are there, but if you're looking for a good back to your SLR this is a very competitive choice. Good bang for your buck.

                Comments about Lumix DMC-FX75 Digital Camera (Sliver):

                Just returned from 3 weeks in Europe - - lots of pictures taken, all fantastic! This camera dealt with lowly lit churches where flash was not allowed, sweeping scenery, and images out of a moving train. The extra wide-angle is great for scenery as well as places where you can't get back far enough. Constantly surprised at how much I could get in.
                For the "quick, take a picture", the camera turns on and is ready to go in a flash. Movie feature also nice to be able to zoom while filming. Touch screen makes finding modes, etc. easier. This camera didn't take a bad shot out of 1,000.
                Compact size, fairly light, battery lasted through 2 1/2 days of heavy photo taking. I have no complaints.

                  This camera performs beautifully in Intelligent Auto mode. I'm used to using an SLR and am comfortable with all the advanced settings. However, when I tried to use the advanced settings on the Lumix, I ended up ruining some good pictures. Trust the Intelligent Auto setting, even if you think you know what you are doing, and you will be very happy with the camera. Overall, very nice features, almost no shutter lag and easy to use (if you let the camera do all the thinking for you.)
