Reviews

DMC-SZ8K is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent camera for the price I have mostly used this camera in the point and shoot mode, so I can't address the more advanced features completely. I'll cut to the chase: I like the Zoom, although by the time you get all the way out, you lose some clarity. I tend not to go all the way out to 12x for this reason. I hear LUMIX uses very good lenses. Wgile the zoom is far better than my camera on my phone, on more than one occasion I was surprised how close my 8 megapixel iPhone camera gets to the LUMIX quality. Sometimes for that reason, I just bring my phone. But, for more serious travel pics, the lumix does a great job for its size. I like the video I've made with this camera and I like the convenience of the wifi. Would recommend to someone looking for a small camera to take on the go for quick pics.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Android app is really nice and its really compact. I bought this camera because it would be an upgrade from my older point-and-shoot because of the 12X zoom and Wifi features. The picture quality was what I expected for this price range. Good enough for prints, sharing on the web, and viewing on tablets. I was disappointed that the menu still involved a lot of clicking around between menus. The Wifi features is really nice on the smartphone, but sharing to the computer is a HUGE PAIN! They should have a made an app for the PC/MAC to find and connect to the camera. So I'll be using drop box to access the photos shared to my phone. It's a nice upgrade compared to my older point-and-shoot and its super compact.
