The Canon A2000 took brighter pictures in low light. Panasonic flash seemed weak, leaving pictures a little on the dark side. During zoom, the Panasonic was critical of the zoom area only, and lost quality of things within a few feet, whereas the Canon was able to also pick up the immediate area with decent clarity. Panasonic zoom was not very clear in low light situation, but okay in good light(see attached image). For the most part, when enough light was present, the Panasonic was a good choice, and the colors were very good. The Panasonic was easy to use out of the box. I did not try many of the features that were available on it. All pictures were taken in 'auto' mode, as all I need is a point and shoot. I was doing an apples-to-apples comparison of photos that I would normally take, and the Canon was slightly superior. Both have good and bad, so it was a tough decision. Canon was available for $50 less, so this plus the issue with low light photos, such as the normal inside shot, I went with the Canon.

          Comments about Panasonic Lumix Series DMC-ZS1 Black 10.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

          We have owned this camera for about a year. Bough it prior to a visit to Europe (Paris, Netherlands, UK); Leica lens is amazing. I owned a canon and this is by far a better and simpler product. We love it. Takes photo contest level of pictures. I used to be a pro photographer, and now I have a real job. This is an amazing package. It takes high speed volleyball pictures indorrs with limited light, the beach panoramics, portraits and scenery are amazing. Fireworks at the Mouse Trap came out awesome. In doors during parties, you can caths the lights, and candids. Shopping for a new camera for my daughter and haave eliminated the plastic Canon line for a new panasonic. Probably should ad a few cons, just so I don't come across like a TV commercial. Scene mode menu is hard to see in the daylight. My guess is that thereis a setting to change the backlight, but I really don't care. Second, could not find a cool case for it.

              Comments about Panasonic Lumix Series DMC-ZS1 Black 10.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

              The controls are laid out well and easy to use. The best part of this pocket camera is the 25mm wide angle with 12X telephoto, plus 10 MP is just right. The anti-shake is good to go. I don't think any other camera company offers a camera with these specs in this price range, so this camera is a bargain. No it won't compete with a G11 or a DSLR, but then the price difference is substantial. Highly recommend for every day shooting. I have no idea why another reviewer was having trouble with the battery, as with one charge I can shoot close to 400 pix at max resolution. Good luck and have fun out there.

                        The low-light performance of this camera is really spectacular. On Xmas day I snapped a picture of my wife sitting in a dark room -- the only light was from the fireplace -- sitting in front of a window. Outside it was just twilight and the ground was covered with snow. Impossible, right? Not only did this unit give me a perfectly-balanced photo but the colors were all perfect as well.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Shipped very quickly, packed carefully (with sealed-air bags.) Excellent.

                          Comments about Panasonic Lumix Series DMC-ZS1 Black 10.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

                          The camera is a difficult to use as the user makes it. The camera feels good and is easy to handle. Usually if the camera is operating slow is because the operator didn't set something correctly. This is easily corrected by resetting the menu. This camera has Leica glass and it doesn't get any better than that. Excellent macros and beautiful prints.
