    UPDATE:
    This is a 2010 camera. At the time of writing it's now the end of 2012 and things have moved on. The FZ100 is a great camera and a lot of fun to use, but it's comprehensively out-performed by the FZ150 and the new FZ200. The rest of this review contains useful information, but should be read for interest, not as buying advice.

    The FZ100 is an excellent enthusiast's camera, but it is not a point and shoot camera. If you leave it on the admittedly very clever "Intelligent Auto" you will not get the best from it. If you prefer a camera you can leave on "auto" and not have to spend time and effort learning how to use it, save some money and buy the FZ45. Panasonic Lumix FZ45 14.1MP Digital Camera - Black (3.0 inch TFT LCD Display, LEICA DC Lens with 25mm Wide-angle and 24x Optical Zoom) You are paying a premium for a high level of creative control with the FZ100 and you'll need to spend time to get to know it. Anyway, here's my thoughts on the good and bad points about it.

    Plus points:-
    * It has a fabulous 3" articulated 460,000 pixel screen. This makes manual focussing is a cinch, especially as it implements a snap-zoom to the central portion of the screen when using manual focus. This is the first digital camera I've had (and this is my 7th) where manual focussing is quick, easy and reliable. Low res. screens flatter to deceive and it's great to be able to quickly see if a picture is really sharp. The articulation is something that I'm surprised more cameras don't have.

    I recently did some volunteer work for the cheetah conservation fund in Namibia and decided i needed a camera with a good zoom, good burst mode and 1080p movie and this camera had the lot.
    I had only used a small panasonic pocket camera before.
    I don't really understand all the technical aspects of taking a photo, ie. iso/aperature etc, so i left it on the intelligent mode.
    Ive just come back and going through the pictures/movies , im so impressed with the results.
    To exercise the cheetahs they use a rag tied to a pully system. I got some great burst mode shots - the zoom was quick enough to change as the cheetahs flew by.
    But for me, the best bit is watching the movies on my home cinema projector - its so clear.
    I would highly recommend this camera for anyone like me, happy just to point and shoot.
    It so simple to use - want to take a movie instead of a picture - just press the record button - want to use burst mode - press the burst mode button !
    The only downside for me is the software provided with the camera. I use a mac laptop for everything and a pc for just gaming - but some of the software will only work on a pc.
    When it came to printing the photos, they were perfect when using the mac, but when using the supplied software on the pc, they came out dark and the colours were dull.
    I did make sure the pc had the latest print drivers. So if your going to print on a pc, might be best to use another photo software package.

    Having read all the reviews on Amazon and elsewhere, I chose this camera as an upgrade from my Canon Ixus 850i which has superb portability and gives excellent results. But I wanted to try experimenting with more control over my shots yet didn't want to lumber myself with the physical burden of a full DSLR. I've only been playing with it for a couple of days but I'm very pleased with the purchase. The menu system is easy to understand and navigate in spite of the numerous buttons and settings. As far as I can see the resulting photos are very good and my one trial of the video gave results equal to my camcorder. Of course, I'm still learning but to help me I've also bought Collins Complete Photography Course by Garrett & Harris which supplements the info in the FZ100 manuals by giving a clear explanation of the various terms and settings as well as some lessons to try. I've uploaded a photo of a rose which has NOT been computer enhanced, it's just as the camera produced it - seems OK to me, which is what counts after all!

    Owning two Leica cameras, C Lux 3 and D Lux 4, I was keen to purchase the Leica V Lux 2 as the electronic viewfinder and extensive zoom was just what I needed to have a camera as close as I could get to the Nikon DSLR system I had previously used. The price was just too much particularly as my product researches showed that the FZ 100 was as near as the same camera. I have just had the opportunity to use it extensively in various light conditions. I set the Intelligent Auto mode and just concentrated on the pictures. ISO was on auto and I just let the camera do the thinking for me. My initial response was this was a camera I could work with, especially as I would not have the burden of lense swapping and my wife's ire if I had chosen the DSLR to take on vacation. Those pictures taken in normal outside daylight conditions were amazingly precise and clear - no doubt Leica optics played a major role here. I also used the camera in churches with stained glass and in conditions of available light only. These in the main, especially if there was sufficient back light through the window, were also very acceptable. I also took several outside night shots (not using flash)and on the cameras viewing screen looked ok, but when downloaded onto my PC were disappointingly grainy. It appears that using auto ISO the camera will take the shot OK but don't be surpised when the photo info shows that the photo had been taken at ISO 6400.

    Other than that I found the camera easy to handle and I look forward to using the other programme modes. Considering the LEICA version is another £300+ more, I am happy to have made the purchase through Amazon of the Luminex FZ100.
