"Good Pictures but Do Not Buy!"0.5 starson by mjpoling5
Pros: The picture quality was very good. I was impressed with the clarity and detail of the photos.
Cons: Single worst customer experience of my lifetime. I absolutely cannot recommend anyone spending their money due to Panasonic's customer support (as well as possible quality issues).
Summary: I recommended this camera to my daughter based upon very positive online reviews. After 2 uses and only having the camera for 6 weeks, a piece of plastic that sits over the lens came off. I called Panasonic and they had me send it in for repair (at my expense). They asked and I specified that the camera had not been dropped. I received no acknowledgement (other than my own tracking through UPS) that it was received by Panasonic or where it was in their workflow. I called them after 2 weeks and Customer Support told me that I'd be receiving a letter that week from their center in McAllen, TX, that while it was 6 weeks old they had not seen that issue and would not be covering it under warranty. I have now received their letter. I can pay $128 to repair a $160, 6 week old camera. With my repaired or refurbished returned camera, I will now have a 90 day warranty even though the camera came with a year warranty. Under no circumstance can I recommend this camera to anyone.
