Good budget camera

 

At $100, expectations shouldn't be very high, but this camera takes decent pictures and shoots nice HD videos. Build quality could have still been better. Works fine overall and is a good deal for non-hobbyists and absolute beginners who want to stay...

Panasonic Lumix DMC-F3

 

Very simple and basic camera to carry around everyday.

Decent pictures for a cheap camera ; wide angle lens with sufficient zoom (4x) for daily use

The main drawback is that the camera is slow to record the pictures

so far so good

 

Bought this at a great price, and Lumix cameras generally have a good reputation (other models are usually highly-rated and recommended on consumer and photo magazines). Very small and compact; light! Not quite but almost as small as my old Canon...

USER FRIENDLY - EVEN MY HUSBAND CAN USE

 

Bought this for my husband and already he is a pro taking great pictures. He has had several cameras and never quite figured them out. This one takes great pictures every time. He carries it to work with him every day.

Great camera for the price

 

I bought very expensive point & shoot cameras before, I am just tired of paying so much money and when they drop, they all stop working, I decided not to spend too much this time, this is the perfect camera for the price. Quality is not bad, the
