Excellent little camera for travelers. Bought this for an upcoming trip, and I've been testing it for the last few days on walks around a local lake. One day I took about 150 shots, and the battery was starting to wear down. No way this will shoot 200 without a recharge, which takes a couple hours. Realistically tho, how often do you shoot more than 100 shots in one day?

On the other hand, this is the first camera I've owned that makes me look like I'm not a terrible photographer. The Intelligent Auto mode is everything a point-and-shoot idiot could wish for. It focuses quickly, sets all the settings, and all you do is shoot. The Lumix sensor gets the colors just about right, with a little kick to make the world look just a bit more vivid. It's also fun to fiddle with the focus point, which you can pick by touching a spot on the viewer.

28 "Scene Modes" are available in groups of four, but you probably won't use more than a few. I wish I could rearrange the order of the Scene Modes so my favorites were in front. I also wish Panasonic's PhotoFunStudio 6.0 software didn't crash every time I try to offload photos to my PC, but I'm sure that bug will be fixed fairly soon. Meanwhile I copy photos using Windows Explorer to see the camera's SD card as a folder. Drag and Drop will do for now.

The touch screen has decent contrast, but could be brighter in daylight (as could all LCD's). In Playback Mode you can slide your finger left or right to go to the next or previous photo. Some of the menu icons are really cryptic, so be sure to get the PDF of the full user's manual so you can decipher them. It also takes awhile to get used to how the menus work in different modes. I'm still puzzling over some of that.

I bought this camera for a family member who wanted a camera that would be easy to use. And boy is this easy to use! This is by far the most intelligent camera I have ever used in terms of the accuracy of its Auto mode. Just point and click, and the camera will select the appropriate settings every time. No more blurred action shots, and no more washed out flash pictures where the entire background is just black. This camera selects the appropriate ISO setting for each shot - in milliseconds. Very short shutter lag, I would say unheard of for a point and shoot. The touch screen is very intuitive and simple to use, and I like the absence of "confusing" dials of settings that most point and shoot cameras have.

One feature I like is instead of having to choose the shooting mode (i.e. Portrait/Landscape/Night Scene/etc.) the camera automatically detects which shooting mode it should use, and switches to that mode - again, in milliseconds. This is easily the most user-friendly camera I have ever come across, and my grandmother is already delighted with it.

To be clear, this camera is not for a photography enthusiast, as you really have almost zero control over the settings. This camera is fantastic for the demographic it was designed for: those who want to be able to push a button and capture the moment every time.

This is a nice little camera that I bought to capture high definition photos when I'm out and about and not carrying my Nikon DSLR. It doesn't do so well with real close up macros but it takes great photos overall and they are clear and fairly crisp. The files size is large (over 6 MB for the high setting). The battery life is definitely a problem and spare batteries are available but still expensive at the time of this review ($35-$50 range). It eats up battery power even when the camera is turned off. In bright sunlight the LCD screen is difficult to see. Operationally the camera is easy to use and turns out good photos.

I bought my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH27 camera in May 2011. I love this camera given the low price point. It does have a few things that could use some improvement. However, the biggest beef is the battery life. Like most of the reviewers here, I did have problem with the battery not lasting long enough for the day (ran out of juice after less than 200 shots). Thanks to the reviews here, I brought along an old Canon camera as a backup and did have to use it on two occasions during a Baltic cruise.

I am happy to report that after some research on the web, I bought an OEM battery Wasabi Power Battery BTR-BCK7-JWP that works with Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH27. At $12 (plus shipping) from Amazon.com, it is rated at 1100 mAh and should last longer that the stock battery (rated at 680 mAh). I did not take enough pictures (only 100+) to deplete this new battery, but the charge was still pretty full after that.

I bought this from costco. Everything was good until I found one tiny little design flaw. The flash is so close to the zoom lens, if you take a close up shot the shadow of the zoom lens spoils your left hand corner of your picture.It all dark at the left bottom corner. Initially I thought it is my finger was on the flash and later discovered that the lens zoom is getting in the way of the flash.I wouldn't recommend this camera until they fix the flash issue. Wondering how it passed all the QC from Panasonic.
