          Comments about Panasonic Lumix 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

          I got this camera for xmas and I was very excited to use it. I started to use it, and I was soooooo mad because it is a terrible camera. The features are terrible and the quality of the photos are just terrible. In addition, the lens would not open all the way. DO NOT BUY THIS !! A WASTE OF MONEY!!!

          Pros

          • Exceeded expectations
          • loved the 24x digital zoom

          Cons

          • Difficult to use

            Comments about Panasonic Lumix 12.1 Megapixel Digital Camera:

            Just got this camera for Christmas and 1st time using it. It has great digital zoom clarity, even at 24 x's zoom. You need the right setting for the pics to turn out good. I would like to keep this camera and play it with some more but when I tried to view the pics and videos on my MAC, I found I can't play videos. Apparently you have to download software at a cost to use on a mac. The CD that comes with it has PHOTO fun studio on it but again not MAC friendly. I am also having trouble playing back videos on the camera. I am following the manuel directions and I got them to play back a couple of times after several tries but then couldn't get them to play back at all. Also I was disappointed in the plastic case. It feels cheap.

                    This is my 3rd Panasonic camera over 6 years. The menus and control are familier and improved on each new version. My wife is able to pick any of the cameras and just use them. They are consistent in quality, constuction and materials used, great.
