    I am a complete beginner to photography, so I am not qualified in any way to talk about the technical aspects of this camera. When I was looking around I wanted a good camera that I could point and shoot in the knowledge that I would get half decent shots as a result. The previous posts on this camera encouraged me enough to make the purchase. I also bought a panasonic gold 16GB SDHC memory card to go with it. So far I have had some fantastic fun, and results, taking photographs of anything that moves, and some things that don't, so personally I could not ask for more. The video side of the camera is excellent as well, but from what I read on this article elsewhere then some of that could be down to the quality of the memory card. Hope this helps in your deliberations.

    I have recently purchased the Lumix FZ45, Wow what a piece of kit. I am very pleased with what it can do. I like the fact that it has so many auto modes for various differant shots and scenario's, and has the advantage of using your own settings as well. The 24x Optical zoom is amazing and still keeps its quality at full zoom. A friend who has used Olympus all his life has commented on the FZ45 as the dogs b------s... and went on to say if he needed to purchase a new Digital the FZ45 would be his preferred choice. After all thats said, I am still only very much a beginner at this new hobby but thought it was worth leaving a comment for all the other novices out there...

    This is my second Lumix after the first (FZ38) was stolen. It works extremely well in daylight as it does on low light. Have used it without flash in a theatre an taken fantastic pics. With a bit of tuition, I could do even better as Im strictly and amateur. Great if like me, you tend to just point and shoot on automatic - but equally so if you know how everything works and can use all the features on it.

    Having taken delivery of this camera I can say that for the money paid it is good solid build as you would expect from the Panasonic brand and a handy tool to support our DSLRs as a point and click. It's main use for me is to keep in a car for those "wish I had a camera on me" situations. Personally I think it is a great tool for someone thinking of getting into photography giving them enough options and manual settings while learning to keep them very occupied before shelling out on what is to be honest a very expensive hobby.
    I'm sure the more hardened photographiers will try to compare it to their thousands of pounds camera which makes as much sense as comparing a stair lift to a sports car. In a nut shell - it's a great "bridge" camera and unlike some other makes in this range it doesn't run off AA batteries.

    Bought this camera 16th May 2011. Have been to Oulton Park race meetings, Southport Marshlans to photograph Birds (feathered type ). Up Snowdonia for landscapes.
    The results have been exceptional. I was a Free lance photographer 30yrs ago, and there is no comparison with the results that have come out of my printer.
    I am an old age pensioner now and have a bit of a shaky hand but this compensates very well. The zoom is quite something.
    Down point is the Manual. I just print off the relevant page that I need to read, and put it in a folder. Far too much waste of paper and ink to print it all out.
    First saw this camera at the Gadget show at the NEC Birmingham at the panasonic stand. Had a demo and was quite impressed. Didn't buy it there tho as thaey wanted £299.99, and I thought it best to shop arround first. Got it from Amazon in the end.
    I am pleased with it and I think you will be too.

    I brought this after my 4 year old Fuji bridge cam packed it in. I was quite surprised by the technology on offer with this product. I am no expert on cameras, i tend to use one as a hoby and i am still very much learning, so seeing as i dont have a few £1000 for a DSLR with all the lenses i would like, this camera type is perfect for me, its a jack of all trades, not fantastic at one thing, but pretty good at everything.

    The best feature (and perhaps the reason one might buy this) is the zoom, it is quite incredible what you can see. If you have steady hands/TRIPOD or are using the iA feature you can take max zoom photos with out too much loss of quality.

    I took this camera up to a hill a few miles from where i live (where you can see for 10 miles all around to all the various towns/villages and land marks in my area) and I was quite startled by how close up i could get with photos and video! Being able to take a video and zoom in on a place 6 miles away so it fills a 19 inch monitor back home is quite astonishing if you never done it before.....although at that distance you get a fair amount of haze. I also tried it out on a passing plane about medium height up (for a plane) and could almost make out the number on the underside of the wing (i could see it was a Ryan Air quite easily).

    When you take a photo at max zoom you might be thinking "meh cant see much more" when you look at the LCD display or the eye piece....but when you get home and see it on the "big screen" you really see the magic of how clear the photo is (i cant find how big 14 mega pixel images are if "printed" but its bigger than your monitor) so you can then go about cropping the photo with very little loss of quality!
