From the Manufacturer

Panasonic's new Lumix DMC-LS80 digital camera features advanced, yet easy-to-use settings that help every type of digital photographer take great photos. Encased in a compact design and powered by AA batteries, the LS80 offers convenience and increased usability. With a newly-developed Lumix DC Vario lens system, 3x optical zoom and 8.1-megapixel resolution, the LS80 is feature-rich and user-friendly digital camera, all at an affordable price.

At the core of the DMC-LS80's easy-to-use operation is a comprehensive system of intelligent technologies that operate within the camera automatically, without any extra effort from the user. The Panasonic Lumix LS80 integrates four distinct features aimed at making it easy to capture perfect images.

Another new intuitive technology of the LS80 includes the Intelligent LCD, which means the brightness of the LCD automatically adjusts as the ambient light level changes. With the Intelligent LCD, which comes with 230,000-dot high resolution, images are clear, bright and easy to see -- regardless whether it is day or night; inside or outside.

Panasonic DMC-LS80K Highlights

Mega O.I.S. Gyrosensors detect hand-shake and an Optical Image Stabilizer (O.I.S.) lens system shifts to compensate, preventing hand-shake from creating a blurry image and instead, providing a clear and crisp photo.

Intelligent ISO With this feature, the digital camera can determine if the photo subject is moving and change ISO setting and shutter speed accordingly, thus enabling a blur-free photo.

Auto Macro The LS80 automatically switches to the Macro setting when in close proximity to the photo subject, ideal for those extreme close-up shots.

Quick AF With the Quick AF (Auto Focus) system, the LS80 will focus on the photo subject without the user needing to press the shutter button, producing the fastest shutter speed by minimizing the AF time.

Venus Engine III processor High-quality, high-performance image processing with the Venus Engine III. With its multi-task image processing capability, the Venus Engine III boasts outstanding response time. Shutter release time lag is as short as 0.005 second. In the consecutive shooting mode, it is possible to shoot at 2.5 frames per second in full resolution; and in High-Speed Burst shooting mode, the LS80 fires off an incredible 5.5 shots per second. Also, with unlimited consecutive shooting, the user can snap photos continuously until the SD Memory Card is full.

High-definition compatible With the Lumix LS80, consumers are able to take 1920x1080 pixel photos, ideal for viewing on wide-screen (16:9) High Definition televisions. The complete Panasonic Viera line of Plasma and LCD HDTVs comes equipped with an internal SD card slot, so viewing digital photos is as easy as taking the SD card out of the LS80 and inserting it into the front of the Panasonic Viera.

Video recording In addition to recording standard VGA (640 x 480), the DMC-LS80 can also record WVGA (848 x 480) motion pictures at 30 frames per second. Fitting a wide-screen HDTV perfectly, these wide-aspect motion images make for impressive viewing.

I researched and found this camera for my wife. She is not technologically oriented so I needed one that was simple yet took excellent pictures. This is it. So many features and the automatic settings are so intelligent. It is must have with image stabilization. Now, no pictures get blurred. It also has regular batteries that I replaced with rechargeable ones. She was thrilled at receiving it and the ease of using it. Panasonic did a great job. I bought a more advanced model for myself. My Lumix DMC-TZ3 model is great also.

picked one up at Fry's but getting 2 more here since it's much less $. I take a lot of photos for work up to 2000 per day on some days .. so I go through a few cameras a year and I've tried many. So far Canons were my favorite until I came across this one.

This is a very well though through camera since almost all budget cameras out there take good photos it really comes down to comfort & functionality. This is where it shines

-IMAGE STABILIZATION !!!! - no more blurry pics (a must have especially when using zoom)
-INSTANT AF (auto focus) this comes with CCD sensors - fast focus time
-front facing zoom wheel control (don't have to loose grip trying to work those w/t zoom buttons on the back of other cameras)
-Excellent grip for large hands and still flat profile to fit in a slim case
-fast turn on time
-4.8X zoom at 3(and less) megapixel setting
-flash setting memory - it remember flash mode used, so if you turn on/off your camera often you don't need to change your flash mode again (answer to my prayers)
-2,5" excellent quality LCD with auto adjusting back lit,
-ISO 400-1600,
-real switches for on/off and shoot/play (not buttons) - won't press any by accident (as with Canons and others)
-AA batteries and SD card(up to 16gb high capacity) - the most practical combination for traveling and work
-separate doors for batteries and SD card so you don't wear the plastic battery door yanking the card in and out.
-nice quality natural photos

-5-6 second flash recharge time
-lack of accessories (case for underwater shooting etc)

Well built, solid feel, good looking camera: black case, chrome trim. Real work horse.

I bought this camera when I was in Anchorage, AK in the middle of winter to take along to the Iditarod race. I didn't want to take my Nikon DSLR as I was going to be volunteering, therefore I didn't know what to expect as far as accommodations for my things. I was glad I made the purchase, let me tell you.

It has a compact design, but it is weighty and lacks protrusions other than the feature knob at the top. This is key to keep from things breaking off with normal use. I've dropped this camera several times and it has not broken once! When I took it to the aforementioned Iditarod race, I fell on it (long story) and it suffered no ill effects. I, however, did!

That was over a year ago, and the camera is still going strong. The functions are easy to use and even though it is an 8 mp, there aren't a whole lot of unnecessary bells and whistles to it. Which is good, since I hate seeing pretentious point-and-shoots touted with attributes that only someone using a DSLR should be using. There is simply no comparison between the two as far as quality, depth and focus.

But, if you're looking for a cheaper, well-built camera to carry in your purse or pocket, this is the camera for you. My great-grandpa always said Lumix lenses were the best, and he was right.

My only gripe is having to use AA batteries. I always try to get cameras with battery packs, but I was in a bind and yada yada. It sucks the power out of those pretty quickly. But considering I was outside for 8 hours in 10 degree weather, the batteries held up well enough to take quite a few pictures and videos.

And a note on the videos, there is no microphone in the camera, so you get some great quality silent movies. Can't have everything I guess.

Color: Silver
I just bought this camera on March 25, 2009, so I am still learning its functionality. I wanted a camera which could reproduce fairly accurately, the colors on a watercolor painting. Myprevious digital camera had just a few settings for close-ups and distance photos. This camera has a lot more options. Yesterday,the 26th, I was experimenting with the different scene modes. I randomly took pictures of one of my paintings using 6 different scene modes. Three of the photos were too dark. The other three were good, but only one of them was spot on. Unfortunately, I can't remember which scene mode it was.

The camera is relatively small, about the size of a deck of cards. I like how the tripod mount is away from the battery area. I can easily change the batteries without removing the camera from the tripod. This is a nice feature.

The camera has an intelligent mode which is okay, if you are not too particular about the results. If you want the color to be spot on, you should find the scene mode that most closely matches your settings. Intelligent Mode hasn't proved to be that intelligent so far.
