4.0 out of 5 stars great for pics and hi def video, 17 Aug. 2010
By 
This review is from: Panasonic Lumix FZ100 14.1MP Digital Camera - Black (3.0 inch TFT LCD Display, LEICA DC Lens with 24x Optical Zoom and Full HD Movie) (Electronics)
Brought this to avoid the need to take DLSR, lenses and camcorder on holiday. Most pics are similar quality to my Nikon DLSR and hi-def video quality is amazing as are some of the hi frame rate videos. Focus tracks properly throughout the zoom range and does this for video as well as pics. Optical stabilisation is generally very effective.

Only negatives so far are that the lense rattles slightly if you tilt the camera forward quickly and that Panasonic doesn't include a hdmi cable . Also its expensive compared to its rivals (though the video quality does partially justify this).

Overall - great piece of kit...

I believe the "rattle" being heard is likely the autofocus mechanism working. Try setting the camera for manual focus and see if it goes away.

I have tried hard to create this rattle in my FZ100 but failed. Suggest get it looked into to confirm if it is a flaw at all.

The rattle is not a fault,but as has been mentioned elsewhere,it's just a feature of the autofocus/image stabilisation technology.
As you have to physically shake the camera to hear it,in normal use you won't hear it anyway.
In my long experience with Panasonic cameras,they're well built,reliable,and have never caused me any problems at all.
