    Comments about Lumix DMC-S1 Digital Camera (Black):

    An easy product to use. Even my 3 year old son can use this product. Amazing quality, solid (tested by a 3 year old) and good quality photos. A bit of a lag when you go from camera to preview function. In all it is a good point and shoot cam. This is my first Lumix cam and I think will save up to buy the higher version.

      Comments about Lumix DMC-S1 Digital Camera (Black):

      Very low profile, easily fits into my pocket. Most components are plastic making this a very light camera. Very good pictures. Not as many settings as I would like, mostly automatic. I let my kids take pics with it because of this. Easy for them

      Comments about Lumix DMC-S1 Digital Camera (Black):

      I got the camera as a compact one for weekends that I go out to Red Bull games to take pictures and videos of friends and fans, without draining the battery on my Nokia N8 (Smartphone with 12MP Carl Ziess camera). The Lumix fits nicely in the pocket, and shoots quality pictures for a point and shoot, as well as HD video.

      There aren't any qualms to be held about it, but I came into the purchase knowing I wasn't buying a DSLR, just a camera to take pictures for Facebook and YouTube videos. The two issues that you may need to consider are:

      1 - The camera doesn't reset to picture mode after being turned off while last mode was video mode.

      2 - You need a Class 6 or greater SD card for shooting video.

      Comments about Lumix DMC-S1 Digital Camera (Blue):

      Bought this camera for my niece who turned 13. For the price ([$]), you'd be hard-pressed to find another quality camera that packs as many features. Picture quality is great - optical image stabilization system is best-in-class. It would have been nice if panasonic had used their Leica lens, but I guess they had to cut costs somewhere. However, unless you're a serious photographer you probably wouldn't notice any difference. This is a great little camera - even has some advanced features such as face-recognition and HD video. I would definitely recommend this camera.

      Comments about Lumix DMC-S1 Digital Camera (Black):

      When keeping in mind that the price of this camera is one of the lowest for a point & shoot that comes with rechargeable battery pack, this camera should meet everyone's expectations. One can't expect to get flawless images, but you do get an inexpensive camera that you can toss in your glove box, your back pack, etc and not worry that you'll ruin an expensive gadget. The camera is easy to use and it's easy to carry. It would make a great gift for your kids, small nephews or anyone that just wants an easy-to-use camera
