Great camera, don't regret buying it at all, even though it's now been superseded by the FZ28 etc. Great image quality, fantastic zoom, and even though I usually leave it on 'Auto' it's got enough manual settings to do some creative photography occasionally.
Highly recommended. (read more)

I love the 18X zoom, and the 10 Mp which I rarely have to use, but if I want a really long zoom effect, combining the 18X with the 10Mp allows me to crop a picture and get a mega closeup.

All in all, the Panasonic DMCFZ18 is one good camera; it is portable, SLR-like in feel, but uses a fixed non-interchangeable zoom with a wide range. 8.1 mp and a Leica licensed lens allow for moderate cropping.

Light weight yet feels like a high quality camera - easy to wear around my neck for hours at a time.
Pop-Up Flash for good illumination of subjects for nice indoor pics; average low-light sensitivity is fine for most outdoor pics under 400 ISO; only OK to poor for anything... (read more)

The Panasonic DMC-FZ18 camera provides the serious amateur with a near-perfect bridge between a pocket-sized compact camera and a full-size single lens reflex camera - still beyond the budget of most amateurs.
Easy to use, intuitive when it comes to learning, and with instructions on screen if you're unsure of anything, this is a great camera to learn about photography. You can set the camera to "Intelligent Auto" and it will do everything itself, providing you with more than adequate... (read more)
