This has to be the worst camera I have ever bought in my life, no mater what settings you use the images although in focus are soft and have strange colour patterning. Although a 16 meg camera the images the 5 meg camera in my phone produces are superior! Panasonic came up with yards of excuses and told me I did not know how to use it, interesting as I was a professional photographer. They eventually had me send it their "repairers" who said that there was nothing wrong with it and what did I expect from a cheap camera. Then to make matters worse despite it being returned under warranty they demanded that I pay the cost of the return post and packing. As if that were not enough Panasonic no longer reply to my emails. PANASONIC, NEVER AGAIIN NO MATTER WHAT THE PRODUCT.
