          Comments about Lumix DMC-GF5X Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens (White):

          I am an amateur photographer that made the switch to point and shoot a few years ago in order to capture more shots on the fly. I'm just not one of those people who wants to carry a heavy camera and special camera bag along with me everywhere I go. I got back from a recent vacation, though, and was appalled when my boyfriend's iPhone took better pictures! I knew I needed an upgrade. After much research, the Lumix GF5X was my choice: versatile, compact enough to fit in my small purse, and it takes beautiful shots. I take it everywhere, which opens up a lot of unexpectedly great photo opportunities. My hands down choice to those looking for a step above point and shoot, without all the fuss (and price!) of a heavy DSLR.

          Comments about Lumix DMC-GF5X Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens (Black):

          The camera takes great still pictures, the standard 14-42 lens is good and the sensor must be amazing when you look at the output. The video is good but not fantastic, although you can at least use the zoom and the autofocus while recording.

          But...one major ommission in the camera is a viewfinder, so you can only frame shots in the touchscreen

            Comments about Lumix DMC-GF5X Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera with 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens (Black):

            This is a great camera for someone who has outgrown the limitations of their point-and-shoot but doesn't want the complication/weight/cost of a DSLR. This camera would be best for someone who has experience with digital cameras and has knowledge about manual features, but it can be operated easily in Intelligent Auto mode to yield great results. The camera is very versatile and can be used in full manual mode. The resulting photos require little to no color correction. I've owned a lot of Lumix cameras and love the photos I get with them but this one is the best of all of them because of the huge sensor, the manual features and the interchangability of the lenses.
