    Comments about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP7 Digital Camera (Black):

    If you're looking for a pocketable travel/snapshot digital camera at a great price, you've found it. It is easy to use and the menu system is intuitive. It has auto-focus and image stabilization with a large display so that you can what you're doing. The display is easily scratched (they all are), so get a protection kit. Battery life is good for regular use, but if you display the pictures already taken or use the retouch cosmetic modes, you may be disapointed. So, get a spare battery. Battery recharge is fast and the charger is small and plugs it without a cord.

    Very east to learn all the tricks it will do. Great fun camera to take anywhere. Small, easy to tote and quick to use. Very good buy for the money and it was cheaper at B&H than anywhere else I checked, [@] and [@] included.

        Comments about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP7 Digital Camera (Black):

        I purchased this camera specifically for the 'cosmetic' feature that allows you to choose someone's (or everyone's, one at a time) face in a photo and make them look, well, better! You can make subtle enhancements like smoother skin, less wrinkles, more even skin tone, and even rosier lips and cheeks. When used sparingly and with practice the results can be amazing! My girlfriends and I travel frequently and take 'chick trips' all over the world. I took this camera on our last vacation and we had a blast with it! Almost everyone who saw the photos from our trip commented on how 'professional' the photos looked, and how 'fresh and happy' we all looked. This camera is like our little secret weapon. I loved it so much, I have since purchased one for my best friend and plan to purchase another one for my sister! I also love that it is very small and travels well. If you are looking for a simple to use, compact camera tha takes GREAT photos and has some amazing features, this is the camera for you!

          So far the camera is great. I love it...takes great photos. I really like B&H...Very professional, Knowledgable and very helpful. Since then, I have ordered one of their camcorders. I had questions and the saleman was very nice and very helpful. Will order other products without a doubt.

            Comments about Lumix DMC-FP7 Digital Camera (Black):

            We use this as a back-up camera to our very fine FZ-100 that we also own, also from B&H! This is really primarily a recreational camera, one we use when we don't want to fuss with our more advanced FZ-100. This unit fits into a shirt pocket, has an great display, takes Fast pictures and the touch to capture feature is just cool. It works very well. Perfect for taking on a plane, a hike or keep it with you in a car for those impromptu photo opportunities! I use it a lot at work for that, if there is a service issue, or we are quoting on an installation I'll grab some quick pic's of the situation for file reference. Works like a charm. I don't personally use the "beauty re-touch" feature, you need a minimum of 3 batteries, at least 2 back-ups to the original and the screen is sweet but be very careful. It scratches VERY easily. Keep those finger nails trimmed!! Overall though, it is a great looking easy to use, stylish and functional point & shoot camera that also happens to be surprisingly fast and takes some pretty snappy photo's! I am totally enjoying it and I would recommend it to anyone. It is the perfect pocket camera. By the way...check out the cost! The fact that you can get a camera like this for less than 200.00 is amazing! 2 years ago this thing would have come to market at 350.00 minimum. We got it on sale at B&H [$]. Got it. Use it. Like it. 2 big thumbs up!

                  I had been waiting for this camera to come out for a year. I love the color, large zoom lens. What I don't like about it is that it's to darn hard to use. When you take a picture you have a few seconds to get the shot. With this camera you have to hit this and that before it works. The touch screen is a nightmare. I've taken pictures of my feet, walls etc. You barely touch it and it goes off. If you are good at understanding intricate goings on of cameras this is a great camera. I'm middle aged and over my prime to figure things out. It takes wonderful pictures.

                    I just bought this camera, and I love it. It is lightweight and very easy to use. I like that I cannot take a blurry picture: fantastic as my subjects are babies and dogs! I haven't yet used the "makeover" tool or video. This is only my second digital camera, and I was able to instantly use it, even without pouring over the user's manual. It s very intuitive. This would make a wonderful gift.

                    I love this camera! I'm the type that just likes to take snapshots. The added features are fun on this camera. I don't know of another camera where you can clear up skin, remove wrinkles, get a tan, apply make-up, and whiten your teeth, all within the features of the camera!
                    You can access the controls and scroll through the pictures like a popular smart phone.
                    It's wonderful for taking pictures of the grandkids that are always on the move without getting blurry images.

                      Profile pictures, parties,happy hour. Family events.
                      I love that the camera has close to 100% blur free photos. The profile shots come out gorgeous. The camera has a cosmetic feature, soft skin mode and make up mode. It's fun but packed with quality features and photos. This is my second Panasonic camera this year. I bought about six other cameras and returned most of them from other brands cause the shots were blurry, the color was off and the pictures were disappointing. The Panasonic takes gorgeous shots--like Canon but the profile pictures make you look more beautiful. I love that. All my profile shots on Facebook are from my Panasonic cameras.
