I love my Panasonic Camera. It is very user friendly and is very reliable. It has a 12X zoom and Image Stabilization.

I've owned the FZ15 for about 10 months now, and with a few exceptions, absolutely love it. The shutter lag can be more than just a minor annoynace at times, as is the lack of any external flash connection. I've now got the FZ30 as well, but haven't had the time to really put it through any decent shooting yet. This weekend, maybe...

Very sharp images, very easy to operate, greate macros, flexibility, functionality: earlier used Canon - this is, in my opinion way a better camera and especially the lenses. Stabilizer really works.

I am very, very pleased with this camera. It has fabulous macro capability as well as full manual control. It *feels* very much like an SLR in my hands; that, combined with its user-friendliness, makes it a wonderful camera to own.

Very good camera for the money. Quick response, full manual capability as well as total automatic. Hopefully my next camera will be a digital SLR!

This is a great camera. I love the decent zoom on it as well as the abilty to macro real close. It will do everything for me (or my wife) and still lets me do everything I want when I want. Panasonic is the best digital camera under the SLRs in my opinion.

Great camera with 12 optical zoom. Battery last very long and has many settings to try (night scenery, day scenery, fireworks, party, etc). Has both manual and autofocus.
