5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Point and Shoot for quick capture moments., November 30, 2012
This review is from: Panasonic Lumix SZ7 14.1 MP High Sensitivity MOS Digital Camera with 10x Optical Zoom (Black) (Electronics)
I really don't understand some of these reviewers. They buy a nice little point and shoot digital camera and expect it to have the features of a five thousand dollar SLR and high end video all in one. This camera is inexpensive, compact, and produces great pictures indoors without a flash. It also compensates for uneven lighting. I used it outdoors to take pictures of Christmas decorations -- it was perfect. I used it indoors to take pictures of gatherings of long-lost relatives. It was perfect with or without a flash. Macro was perfect and zoom was perfect. Sure you can't take 300 pictures without a battery recharge and you can't zoom in on something miles away. Maybe you can't make a huge poster from a picture of a bumblebee taken from ten feet away. But there is really no shutter lag and the pictures really look good. This camera doesn't pretend to be something it's not and people who want it to be something it's not have their head in the sand. It's a nice little camera perfect for those quick capture moments that are so often missed because you're busy with all the dials on your fancy Mount Olympus whatever superzoom SLRs. There is a battery indicator so you know up front when you need to recharge AND there is only one cord for downloading pictures and recharging right in the camera. If you want a spare charger and battery it's available as well. Granted, if you want to use this camera during a category five hurricane outdoors to film your opus, it will probably not do the job. For those who complain about the detailed users manual only being available on line -- I don't use all of those fancy features anyway and the users manual included in the box had enough info for me. Bottom line: I like it!
