"Generally excellent for a Super Zoom"4.5 starson by Jeralda
Pros: So far I have shot some test shots in good light that have impressed my DSLR-toting amateur but very experienced and award winning photographer friend. We blew them up as far as possible with my software and they still looked pretty darn good. The zoom
Cons: No Super Zoom will take the same quality low-light shots that a good DSLR will. The FZ100 will, however take very acceptable shots in low light but not in the auto mode. You have to get into the manual and learn the settings.
Summary: I bought this camera primarily for outdoor, daytime shooting. I give it a full five stars for that function. For indoor, lower light shots I give it four stars...but only after learning the appropriate lens settings. In other words, if your primary interest is in a camera that takes decent photos without ever having to use manual settings, save some money and buy a regular point and shoot. But if you want excellent zoom/burst/video capabilities and are willing to spend some time with the manual, this camera is a bargain.
