    ### I have owned other cameras of this size and price range. I wanted a bigger display and easy to locate separated control buttons, too many integrated funtion selections in one location is not good design. The 'quick zoom' takes getting used to but I c...an see it can be an asset in some situations.I looked at Canon, Nikon and Olympus versions but liked the Lumix and still do. Read more Less

  • Good features for the money, but poor low light preformance

    By Professor  Dec 23, 2011

    ### I bought this because it got great reviews and Leica optics are very high quality. Out of the box it appears very well made, the pdf manual is good and comprehensive, although the paper manual that comes with it is useless. It has lots of outstanding...features including a nice face recognition mode where you can store certain people's faces for identification and lots of scene modes. The problem I had with it was that in low light situations when I took photos without a flash the resulting photos turned out very grainy. I tried adjusting the settings to prevent the reduction in quality that automatically takes place in low light, but then photos just turned out too dark. As a result, whenever indoors I ended up using the flash, which added significant delay between being able to take shots which meant that I missed lots of photos. While on paper this camera looks like a great deal, in practice I'm not happy with the photo results. Read more Less

    is a basic compact megazoom with very good photo quality and shooting performance for its class, as well as long battery life. THE BAD: The ZS8 is somewhat expensive for what its offering. THE BOTTOM LINE: The Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS8 is a fine compact megazoom, if not the best value. Read more
