The DMC-F2 also records video at 640 x 480, at a smooth 30fps. The 2.5-inch 230,000-dot resolution LCD is designed so the user can clearly see the subject while shooting still photos and videos. The Panasonic LUMIX F2 is for the casual but frequent photographer who wants a digital camera that is not only small and stylish in design, but that has sophisticated features to help enrich the photo-taking experience.

I bought this camera to replace a 2007 model Lumix (LS-70) that broke due to water damage. This model is more advanced in some areas (more megapixels and longer zoom) but less advanced in others (no optical image stabilization [OIS]). It was the latter point that was my main misgiving upon ordering the F2, but the lack of OIS so far has not seemed to be an issue. I am still able to take sharp ISO 80-100 photos indoors with the flash or reasonable ambient lighting.

Overall, pictures from this camera are very good and of higher quality than my last Lumix. Colors are fairly accurate as long as white balance is set correctly. Barrel distortion at wide angle, one of my pet peeves, is minimal. Noise is kept at an acceptable level from ISO 80 through 200. (I have not bothered to test higher ISOs as I would probably not use them.)

Sharpness is very good in the central part of the image, especially at wide angle (35 mm equivalent being a respectable 33 mm), and even at 100% resolution for 5-megapixel images (I have little need for the 10 MP setting). However, moving out toward the edges, problems begin to appear. Severe blurring affects the right upper and especially lower corners at wide angle and extends to a lesser extent along the edgebetween the corners. Along the bottom right edge, blurring extends into at least a third of the image.

This may seem like a minor point, but it is noticeable in certain textures even at a much reduced resolution (less than full screen size for 4:3 images on a 17" widescreen monitor). The best solution I can think of for this issue is to favor the upper left corner when framing the image, leaving the opportunity to crop out the right edge for a crystal clear and vivid image.

This camera is sooooooo easy to use! It took me about an hour of playing around with this camera to find all the features (and more) that would meet my needs. The pictures come out so beautiful with just a simple press half way to focus and shoot! I've purchased more expensive cameras that gave me less than beautiful pictures (probably due to user error), but this camera is MUST I emphasize VERY EASY TO USE! I'm sure my other cameras could have done the same thing, but they were more complicated and I'm sure I messed up the settings by playing around with it.

There is a scene mode that allows you to take pictures in different settings (parties, snow, aerial views, indoor, night sky, babies, pets, etc.) There is also the normal shooting mode which allows you to shoot in color, black and white, sepia.

There is the coolest feature (i found) where you could shoot in bursts with or without hold the shooting button down and it takes continuous one of those flip you don't miss any moment! I don't know if my other cameras had this function...if they did...I could not find it.

I am very satisfied with this camera! So 5 stars for ease of use, and great quality photos with simple and easy to use modes!

I already own a more expensive Lumix camera so I know the great quality cameras that Panasonic builds - but I didn't want to carry my other camera around in my bag on a daily basis, so this DMC-F2 fits the bill for me.

It is not fair to compare the two so I will just say I am impressed with this camera, even though it does not have OIS like my other Lumix (optical image stabilization - helps with camera shake). Truthfully, so far I cannot tell the difference in most instances. But if OIS is a must-have for you, for a little bit more this Panasonic Lumix would be a better choice Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH1 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.7-Inch LCD (Black).

We were thrilled with the camera at first. It took very nice pics and was easy to use. However, after less than a month, the display went blank. It still takes pics, but it is a blind point and shoot--Can't see the menu or anything that is needed to make selections either. The unit was never dropped. It was stored in an inside pocket of a purse. It was working fine when it went in, but was blank when it was pulled out. As I said, the purse wasn't dropped or anything; clearly the camera must of gotten knocked but there was no "oh-oh, there goes the camera" moment. So I don't think this camera can handle normal day-to-day activity like other cameras can.
