Very nice little compact camera. Very easy to use and with useful selection of features. There are not that many manual options but selecting some of the preset scene modes will give you more options.
Image quality seems to be very good. The focusing is accurate and the colours good, if slightly cool. Indoors the flash does a decent job as long as the subject isn't too far away, small cameras tend to have small flash and this is no exception. Select ISO 400 flash off and you can get reasonable shots with not too much noise. Indoor/night quality is good for a compact.
Very easy to use and reliable camera. Little to annoy you. Good video quality. Build is good although you can tell this is FS and not FX as the lumix writing on the front is quite sharp and LCD has no glass cover to protect it. Lightweight so its comfortable to put in a pocket. Big enough to be able to use without camera shake. Mega OIS helps here.
For just over £100 this is an excellent purchase.
