Leica 3x optical zoom lens
Features fast f2.8 maximum aperture at wideangle setting to give great low light performance as well as pin sharp detail thanks to the Leica Vario-Elmarit design.

Extra Optical Zoom
This is a useful feature incorporated into many of Panasonic’s designs which allows extra zooming beyond that of the lens but without losing image quality when set to (for this model) 5 megapixels or lower resolution. Safety Zoom for the DMC-FS3 varies from between 3.8x and 4.8x depending on resolution selected.

8.1 Megapixel High Resolution CCD
Has 8.32 total megapixel CCD to give an effective resolution of 8.1 megapixels for high quality crisp photos.

iA (Intelligent Auto Technology)
Ideal for those opportunities when there’s not enough time for selecting shooting modes. It combines the following modes to give the best possible image:
[LIST]
[*]Motion Detection- Intelligent ISO control
[*]Shake Detection- Using MEGA O.I.S., Panasonic’s Optical Image Stabilisation technology
[*]Face Detection AF/ AE
[*]Quick AF- Starts focusing when you point the camera at a subject without needing to press the shutter halfway
[*]Scene Detection- Chooses the most appropriate mode from Scenery, Portrait, Macro, Night Scenery or Night Portrait.[/LIST]

So tempted...........

I used Quidco with Jessops a few weeks ago and, as well as the 3%, there was a 10% voucher, I think the code was QuidCoTen.

Just checked and there's still a 5% code, quidcofive, not sure if it'll work without using Quidco or in conjunction with the other code though.

I have this camera, i also own a Nikon D70.
Panny has superb build and screen.
The results for this price cann't be beaten

This is a fantastic little camera, very good picture quality. Bought one for my mum last year when she went on holiday (Paid £100 for it on Amazing Amazon, and I was pretty happy with that deal). At this price, it's a steal. Don't waste time. Buy now!!
#11
£85?? on the site??
#13
great camera, brought girlfriend one for her birthday in july and the picture quality is fantastic, cant argue at this price!
#14
Was about to buy a Canon Ixus 80 IS for my dad, would this be better??

THanks

I was hooked on Casio cameras (still think they're good for their price and size) but now have two Panasonics. Their build and picture quality are superior. They also use cheap SD card memory (avoid Sony and XD card cameras!). At this price I'd have great confidence in them.
Check ebay shops for extra batteries - fraction of Panasonic's price and good performance in my experience.

Jessops are a good outfit with knowledgeable staff but they're in trouble - lets hope they survive or we'll all have to go to DSG or Comet to have our intelligence insulted!

I've had a Canon IXUS 70 for the past year and the photo quality was excellent. Unfortunately it developed a lens error where the lens got stuck inside the camera and after searching on the internet this seems to be a very common problem. For this reason alone, I've just ordered this Lumix - hope it lasts longer than the Canon!

I'm torn between this and the Fuji Finepix S5700/5800. Which is the better camera?

Very different cameras, one is a bridge camera and the other pocket compact. You can't really compare them. If you want to zoom a long way with a tripod then choose the fuji (handheld at 10x Zoom rarely makes a usable photo), if you want quality photos from well made camera that fits in your jeans pocket buy the Lumix.

Thanks Adidas Addict, I should have said I'm only interested in picture quality, not bothered about the size really.

Ordered one. Thanks!

Personally I would choose the Lumix for image quality. You generally find that the cheaper bridge cameras (the Fuji) make sacrifices to make sure they have a big zoom. In reality people rarely zoom out past 2-3x unless on safari etc or photographing birds and such.

I am kinda speaking from experience. I previously had a Lumix FZ8 (bridge like the fuji) and found the size made me leave it home more often than not, hence no matter how good it was it just wasn't getting the use. I sold this and bought a Panasonic Lumix FX33 and this is my current camera. Its been replaced in the line up by the FX37 now but they are absolutely quality cameras. Lovely metal build and so small and pocketable. The photos are fantastic and I never miss the zoom of the bigger bridge camera.

Well thanks for your opinion, the Lumix it is then :thumbsup:

This is a really fantastic deal. The Panasonic Lumix range are among the best compacts out there at the moment, very rare to see them this side of £100.

Treacle44 - I got the Canon Ixus 80 for Christmas and have taken about 250 photos so far - the photos are good quality, useful variety of settings, etc - I do find non-flash photos to be very grainy, however, even in good light. I would say the Lumix would be just as good as the Ixus (and at a better price than I've seen) if not better (I haven't used one myself so hard to compare).

If you can stretch an extra £20 ish I would really recommend the FX33, like I say its about a year old but seriously good and much further up the range than FS3. Loads on ebay from trusted sellers.
#25
Up to £109 now! Gutted was just gonna snap that deal up :(
#26
It is available at Amazon.co.uk for £84.99 plus free delivery, make sure you click super saver delivery when you order it as I think it defaults to 1st class.

This is probably the best deal now that Jessops has upped the price. The memory prices are good too, gives you the option when you click buy camera.
#27
Ordered this online last night and picked it up this afternoon at my local in nottingham. Really like the camera so far, hope its better than my old samsung which was a real dissapointment.
#28
Amazon price up to £90 I just ordered it from John Lewis for £84.95.
#29
Price is now £89.94 at Jessops. There's 3% off at Quidco or Topcashback, and a 5% voucher still valid, so £85.44 before Quidco. They're out of stock, but delivery expected within 10 days.
