The camera is as easy to use as the 3 previous Panasonic Lumix I've owned over the years. I try other brands, but the Lumix is my favorite. The only problem I've found with it is that there is no viewfinder. The screen provided for viewing is too prone to glare, and I can't see what I am viewing. I've been told I can get a shade for it, but I have not found one yet. Disappointing, as I am an outdoor photographer.

Nice camera; great wide-angle and long zoom. I must admit I miss the viewfinder, though. I feel like a tourist holding the camera away from my face to compose, and shooting in bright sunlight is difficult.

Still learning the operations, as it is much more complicated than my past Easyshare with a wide angle lens. With a few trials, I believe it will be a great Real Estate camera, as the built in wide angle lens shoots with little or no fish eye effect. so far so good...

This is a fantastic camera for the price. The photos are of a decent quality, just make sure to steady yourself before​ you take a picture with an extended zoom.
