Panasonic Lumix DMC-LC5

 

Panasonic digital cameras have never been a favorite of mine. They've always been an "also ran" in digital imaging, with their SuperDisk and Secure Digital cameras being very mediocre

Well designed body, nice fast lens ; Lots of manuals controls ; Robust performance ; Good movie, playback modes ; Included LCD hood a nice touch ; Interesting focus bracketing feature ; Supports for lens, flash accessories

Hideous photo quality (this is the deal breaker for me) ; Scrolling" in playback zoom & scroll feature is too slow

(Updated 8/10/02: Some people have pointed out that the photos look fine when downsized or printed. I am of the belief that you should have acceptable photo quality right out of the camera. The LC5's photos do look decent at 4 x 6 inches, but the flaws...

Great lens and camera feel but not reliable.

 

Before buying this digital camera for my wife, I already have 4 film cameras, including a medium format Mamiya 7II, Nikon F5, Ricoh GR1s, and Samsung Evoca. Therefore, I was hesitant to get another camera. However, the wife wants something that she...

SD format promising but expensive, possible issues with picture quality, bigger size

I have looked long and far for a successor to my Casio QV-2000UX 2 MP camera, and have finally found it. There are so many digital cameras out there with different strengths and weaknesses, so your personal preferences may differ from mine.
