I bought this camera because i wanted a small camera that was easy to carry around for a 3 day trip to Yosemite National Park. As the owner of a panasonic lumix fz35, I was very excited to see this small and compact camera, since my other lumix is bulky. When i saw the price for this camera, a 14mp, 8X I knew i had to have it. I took it to my trip with a fully charged battery and the battery sustained up to 14 hours of continuous photo sessions in different places around the park, it never died on us. The pictures are great, they do have a drop of noise in low-light situations but that is to be expected. The image stabilization does an amazing job with pictures taken in the dark without flash, which actually surprised me. We took some really awesome pictures with this camera. It weighs close to nothing and it fits right in my pocket, best purchase I made for the trip. I do have to say I am not particularly impressed with the video quality, except for the HD. The HD is pretty cool, but you need an sd card with massive storage to get a good recording time because it takes up a lot of space. I bought an 8gb sd card which held about 1200 pictures at 14mpx, but i took my pics at 10 mp since i don't think i will be printing this pics at a large size. Overall i think this camera is amazing, it also has a pretty awesome touchscreen lcd which is big enough for you to know what you're doing. I love this camera!!!!!!!!

The optical zoom is great. The Intelligent auto setting is great. The ease of use is great. The pictures are great. Note the digital zoom is great too...but you have to be in normal picture mode to get the full zoom....but with 8x optical zoom, you'd probably only want the digital zoom in special situations. The touchscreen is easy to use and works great.

I haven't dropped the camera, so I can't comment on how it does when dropped or submitted for service (as another reviewer has). It has a nice sturdy feel so I don't think I'll have this issue (knock on wood).

Have had this camera for almost a year. It is a good value with a solid performance. Does not have all the bells and whistles that some competitors have, but this camera will last more than six months. Lens, made by Leica is one of the better on the market. How many cameras offer a Leica lens at this price? Camera construction is rugged and durable. LCD screen could be larger but the one offered is adequate. Battery life good..expect about 100 photos per charge. You can also charge the battery and leave the camera idle for two months with the charge almost full. One draw back is the touch screen control features. Screen react is slow and you may have to tap your command option twice to get the camera to respond. Overall good camera but do not spend more than $125.

It's really not that bad, the touchscreen is quite useful for quick adjustments in settings. Where it gets bothersome is when you're trying to pan around a picture while zoomed in. It's so annoying that you'll just forgo panning around.

Pros:
-Great price for camera with lots of features.
-Great picture quality for Point and Shoot
-Fast start up.
-FAST autofocus, very fast
-Good battery life (300 pics)
-Up to 1600 iso (better than not having it)
-Pretty decent 720p video at 30fps
-Touchscreen actually very intuitive for changing settings
-Auto white balance is good in most light conditions, indoor lighting sometimes throws it off but not that big of a deal, that's what Lightroom is for.

Cons:
-A bit on the beefy side, but still very pocket-able.
-Overall construction seems okay, but doesn't give the me confidence it would survive a fall.
-Takes awhile if you want to pan around a zoomed in photo
-Firmware update to 1.2 doesn't seem to make a noticeable difference in touchscreen responsiveness.

Final Thoughts:
If you have the option of buying the FH20 at less than or equal to the price of Fh22, then GET IT. Otherwise, this is probably one of the better cameras at this price point as far as picture quality goes. I have a Casio that has taken a beating for years and still going strong, hopefully this Panasonic will be the same way.

Verified Purchase
I bought this less than a year ago and it is broke already. All of a sudden the lens stopped working. Get another brand!

After reading reviews of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH20 I decided to get it. I also noticed that this, the FH22 model, was the same camera but upgraded with a touchscreen (and bigger price tag). I was not interested in the touchscreen but when I went to BestBuy to get the FH20 and it was sold out I was faced with the last FH22 in stock and so I went for gold. It was a Christmas gift being bought the day after Christmas and so time was of the essence. This was a bad idea because I was only visiting the USA and returning it is almost impossible now that I am back home in Jamaica.

So I was expecting the touchscreen to work like a modern touchscreen on a phone or ipod or something like that. WRONG! The touchscreen is HORRIBLE! First I was hoping the images would have auto-rotated based on how I held the camera...no such luck but that's ok. Here is where the problem lies. Scrolling is horrible! It is so unresponsive you really feel retarded. In review mode there are 2 arrows that appear over the image, a left arrow and a right arrow and you have to tap on the arrow for it to scroll. The fastest you can scroll is about 1 image per second, if you are lucky. That may sound fast but it is NOT!! You can also drag your finger across the screen and the image goes to the next or previous one depending on the direction you dragged your finger. Sounds good? WRONG again! this is even slower than trying to tap on the tiny arrows, and this method works about half the time. You find yourself dragging your finger across the screen 3 or 4 times before the image moves.

If scrolling was say..3 out of 10, then panning on a zoomed image would be -3 out of 10 (yes that is negative 3).
