Smart Phone size Camera Takes Spectacular Photos,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panasonic DMC-SZ1EB-R Red 10x Super Zoom Compact Camera with 25mm LEICA Lens and HD Movie (Electronics)I just purchased this Panasonic Lumix camera to stand in for my Canon EOS7D that broke down, while on vacation in London. I needed a small inexpensive camera to take pictures of familty and friends. The Panasonic Lumix so far has performed flawlessly. It is so small it fits in my jeans pocket comfortably. But it takes incredibly sharp images even when enlarged. This is probably due to its Leica lens which creates images of startlingly good sharpness and depth of field - both for landscapes and for portraits including close-ups. The camera is also very easy indeed to set up. It only took me about four minutes after it arrived to start using it. The flash also works very well - allowing indoor group portraits to come out very well. I would strongly recommend this camera. I plan to use it as a smaller lightweight back-up for my heavier - and less reliable ! - Canon EOS7D, which takes excellent pictures but is very temperamental, and lacks any effectively customer support from Canon. I haven't yet found out how good customer support is from Panasonic. For its price, the Panasonic Lumix has to be one of the highest quality cameras on the market.
Very Highly Recommended!

How is the quality of night time images please. Only I read a review on here from someone that was not impressed with the quality of night time images they had taken. This may have been down to a one off camera problem. But I would be interested in you opinion please.
