After my old Lumix DMC-FX150 broke, I decided to replace it with a relatively cheap Lumix camera, having had a good experience with that one. I decide on this camera, due to the good reviews by other people, as well as its cheap price tag. And I must say, I was not disappointed.

I've only had the camera a relatively short time, and haven't really had a chance to play with all the settings yet, but from what I've seen so far it's a good camera that takes good quality pictures. It has a range of photo settings that can be adjusted to a certain extent, perfect for the amateur photographer like myself, as well as pre-made settings for beginners.

It has a re-chargable lithium battery, and comes with the charger for this, which I prefer as it saves me having to buy batteries all the time to replace it! Although I know some people prefer to be able to change the batteries on the go, so it all depends on your own preference I feel. But the battery lasts quite a long time (depending on usage obviously) so I have never felt this has impacted me significantly.

The camera does not come with any kind of SD memory card, which could be an issue if this is your first camera, however I used my SD card from my old camera which was fine. The camera does have a very small built-in memory itself, which would be okay for a couple of photos, but not any more than that.

It's very lightweight and slim in size, which makes it easy to slip in to my pocket if I wanted to, which was a slight problem with my previous Lumix.

Overall, I'm very satisfied with this camera so far! High quality product for a good price. Definately one I'd recommend!

Was concerned at the lack of reviews on here but found good pro reviews elsewhere so went for it. Best camera ive had for a novice. Takes gret picures and the movie mode is also good. I went for this camera because I didnt want to use AA batteries. If you want an easy camera that takes good pics this is one to look at, I found it hard to take blurry pics ( Wanted to see if I could, so shows the technolohy works) and ive had no red eye issues. Very Happy I bought it.

A great camera especially for simple instant tourist pics. Fits (and survives) in the pocket, doesn't need re-charging too often and when it does it doesn't take long. Takes excellent pictures over a wider range of conditions of distance and light than e.g. the RICOH Caplio R1V of 5 years ago and all the menus are easy to follow with further explanations in little 'on-screen' trails. Only criticisms so far are the on/off switch is a bit fiddly but seems robust enough and the factory setting is to take just a few pics (of enormous size) on the memory available. The little set-up booklet doesn't tell you to adjust the picture size to get the usual 300-400. A bit of a puzzle until the penny drops. Thoroughly recommended.

I have only had the camera for a couple of days but initial impressions are very good.

I decided to replace my old Fuji Finepix A202 which is very basic and bulky by current standards. I am only an occasional picture taker so did not wish to spend a fortune and was baffled by the number of different models and range of features on offer. I must have spent eight hours plus reading both professional and user reviews and was still baffled.

Eventually I plumped for the FS 16 on the basis of size and the good reviews for its image stabilization system.

Pro's
Size and "feels" substantial

Image stabilization system is very good

Once you get used to the menu logic, configuration and operation is straightforward

No qualms on image quality, HD movie is just.....wow

Con's
Battery cannot be charged in situ, it has to be removed from the camera and charged in a remote unit. I am concerned that the battery door seems rather flimsy and that it may prove vulnerable with regular use.

Image protection is too good. I have been unable to find any way to delete camera images via my pc when connected to the camera. Images have to either deleted using the cameras menu system or by removing the SD card from the camera, inserting it into the pc card reader and then deleting them from the card. Again this operation involves further use of the battery door.

I realise that the Pro's are "real" whilst the Con's are perceived and I hope my concerns prove unfounded.

In conclusion, I am very pleased with the camera, overall, the quality of the pictures and the price - I may even take more pictures now I can just tuck it in my top pocket.

Unbeatable point and shoot camera that can do much more.Great size for carrying about and great pictures from straight out of the box on fully auto.
Very good price and worth serious consideration if you want good 'snaps' without having to learn a full range of photography skills.
Highly recommended.

I bought this to replace my trusted and reliable iXus 60 which, after several years of heavy use, gave up the ghost. I have a Lumix TZ8 which I absolutely love,but is too heavy for keeping in a pocket for daily use. After a lot of hunting I decided on the Lumix FS16 which I received just before Xmas.

As an ex-pro photographer, I am very fussy in terms of sharpness and colour acuity and want a camera that feels solid - this one ticks all the boxes.

On opening the box, I was pleasantly surprised at the build of this camera, especially after having just returned a Fuji Z90 which really wasn't up to scratch in terms of build quality. The battery charged to capacity very quickly and I inserted a class 2 card which was a mistake - you really need a high-speed card with this camera.

The images produced are clean well-balanced shots with very little distortion, fringeing or jpeg artefacts, and have that 'lively' feel that you want for social shots.

Pros - great build quality, pocket-sized, good optical zoom, fast shutter response (very little lag), fast accurate focusing - including a good face-tracking mode, easy menu and interface with shortcuts for flash, macro and exposure compensation (up to 2 stops each way), fast retraction of lens when reviewing, solid (though plastic) tripod bush, easy card change, well-placed controls

Cons - the card / battery compartment lock is very finicky, the battery has to be externally charged, a fast card is a necessity, the flash can feel underpowered but this is easily remedied via the menu.

The only other observation is that the camera, though it works well out of the box, does benefit from fine-tuning via the menu - I found that 1/3 stop extra exposure made a difference to the shots.

All in all, an excellent small camera for regular daily use.
