Manufacturer's Description

Colourful designs with a playful, fashionable look. Cameras that are easy to carry, easy to use, and easy to enjoy. Just press the iA button, aim and shoot. The camera does all the rest, automatically adjusting to the shooting conditions and helping to correct blurring, focus, and brightness problems. iA Mode includes MEGA O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer) to compensate for hand-shake, Intelligent ISO Control to detect subject movement, Face Detection AF/AE to focus on faces in the frame and remove unwanted red-eye, and Intelligent Scene Selector to select the optimal scene mode automatically for you.The DMC-FS7 features a 33-132mm f/2.8 bright LEICA DC VARIO-ELMARIT lens. This bright, low-distortion lens results in a compact, easy-to-carry camera that delivers beautiful pictures. Equipped with a 4x optical zoom lens (35mm film camera equivalent: 33-132mm) that captures beautiful shots of people or landscapes with 10.1-megapixel full resolution.
With the long battery life of DMC-FS7, you no longer need to worry about your camera running dry during shooting. The DMC-FS7 can deliver 360 images per battery charge, easily fulfilling your needs for a full day of shooting.
The DMC-FS7 hosts a 2.7-inch 230,000 dot high resolution LCD. It features the Intelligent LCD function, which increases the backlight brightness in 11 steps according to the ambient light intensity. At the highest of these 11 steps, the LCD backlight becomes approx. 1.4 times brighter than normal. This makes both shooting and viewing photos easier and

Here's a link to this excellent camera. (go top deal not working for me)

This camera is about one of the best on the market for twice the price. The Leica lens makes it a top deal. A mate of mine has just bought one and the results are astounding.

Id doubt it, if you really want a good compact Camera I'd recommend (from personal experience) to stick with known traditional Camera companies, with the inclusion of one exception (if that makes sense) Panasonic. Pannies are quality Cameras. Too many other electronic firms bringing out supposed high spec Cameras but fail on the crucial point, good image quality. My personal preference is Canon. Bought one a while back for £145 and image quality was out of this world for any Camera at that price. Unfortunately mine has now malfunctioned, possibly due to sand from the beach.. so am considering something cheaper, this Pannie fits the bill well. Has got some good reviews too.

Panasonic has better lens and optical image stabilisation. I'd go for this one 100%.

No definitely not. Have a look at http://www.trustedreviews.com/digital-cameras/review/2010/01/08/Samsung-PL55-digital-camera/p1 (PL55 and PL57 are same camera, just different model no. for different regions)

Review for Panasonic http://www.trustedreviews.com/digital-cameras/review/2009/02/13/Panasonic-Lumix-DMC-FS7/p1

I've got the Panasonic FZ38, and it's a fantastic camera. Daughter was looking for a bright pink camera, and had been considering the FS7 or the Canon Ixus95. Settled on the Panasonic due to the price coming down a bit. :-D

Great camera, but I'm waiting for the TZ7 to drop a bit instead. HD 1080 video sweetness.

These cameras are awesome. I have a similiar one and have took it to the middle east and USA for holidays recently and the quality is outstanding. I'm going back to America is April and I'll be taking Lumix, they're simply the bees knees.

Everyone always compliments on my photo albums once I get them printed from asda or whatever, truly great pictures.

Great camera, great price, great pictures, great reliability.

HOT!

I bought this camera 1 month ago for £100 and this is probably one if not the best £100 compact cameras on the market. It take really good quality pictures and movies etc. I highly recommend it to anyone.
I took the camera with me when going on snowboarding holiday and all pictures I took look really good.


Hot from me.

hmmm.....thanks maybe should have gone with this one then! oh well

Could do with a new digital camera.
#14
A brilliant camera within a range of brilliant cameras from Panasonic! Ticks all the boxes for a high quality compact. Why people mess with Sony (expensive memory), etc beats me.

No, I don't work for them, I'm just one of many happy customers. 4 Panny cameras in the household.
#15
A friend of mine got this camera for Christmas and it's blown me away. The quality of the photos rivals those from much more expensive cameras.

I'm just waiting for my old Samsung to finally give up the ghost, then I'll get one of these.
#16
I've been considering this camera but the 5x zoom on the FS15 seems to be a better bet for not a lot more money.

Agree, looks a fantastic camera. Must admit, I'd have opted for the FS15 if it was for me, but as budget for daughter, the FS7 will be just the ticket. :-D For £100, it's a snip.

Diff types of camera I'm guessing. IIRC The Canon has FULL manual features, perfect for the amateur Photographer within you. Panasonic is more point and shoot type. And IMO Canon's usually have better image quality... queue a barrage of insults now for blaspheming.. :whistling:

Canon are very good (probably second best) but you really can't beat a Panny for lens quality, which is where most compacts fail. Forget the megapixel race - over about 7 or 8 Mp it's all marketing hype.

Unfortunately, daughter wanted a bright pink camera, which did narrow the field a bit. :roll: I think that perhaps the newer FS10 in the Panasonic line, was perhaps the other choice rather than the FS15, my apologies. Must admit, I would have had a hard choice between the FS10 and the Canon Ixus 95, as they are both around the £140 mark, but the Canon does have a viewfinder.

I know - the viewfinder only exists on the Canon's in this sort of camera. Having a large screen can look great but no use in bright sun and has an increased risk of breaking - and once it has broken it renders the camera useless. I was looking at the Panny TZ6s but saw the screen was easily damaged. The Canons are tempting for that reason alone.

The FS10 is certainly a decent camera but it suffers slightly from not having a Leica lens. With prices as they are the FS7 or FS15 looks like a better choice to me, although the FS10 does better video.

Thanks for that, glad I chose the FS7 then for daughter. :-D

Agree, I did search high and low, and it appears only Canon does the viewfinder these days. :roll: As you say, of no use in bright sun at all.
I can highly recommend the Panasonic FZ38, but it's a lot more expensive, and it's certainly far too big to stick in your pocket. :p

Im with you muyuu on waiting for TZ7, although ths is VERY tempting as I am not so fussed about HD vdieo, but its the zoom function that I am interested in. Holding out for under £200 once new TZ8 and TZ10's come out in April ;-)

Good find as pink isnt really my colour, but you need to add £7.99 delivery which adds £16 to cost over Amazon deal. Silver it is then!!!!

If you don't need the HD video just go for the TZ6 (or DSG's exclusive TZ65 with larger screen). Both under £200 now and TZ6 has been seen for £180ish.

The FS7 isn't really a direct alternative with only 4x zoom but it is smaller. The other option is the ZX1(?) which is 8x zoom and smaller than the TZs.

You won't regret getting a Panny.

TZ7's et al are very different cameras, fair bit bulkier and your not going to find them within a £100 price range anytime soon, even after the TZ8/10 is released.

I have had a TZ3, TZ5 and now a TZ7, never a problem with screen damage. I would suggest that the TZ6 is more than a match for anything from Canon at a similar price. Go on, get a TZ6, you will not be disappointed!

I dont think there is much difference between the TZ's and their Canon competitive model SX series and some Powershots.. it all comes down to personal Preference. I had an SX100IS from Canon, and my bro had the Pannie TZ6 I believe... not much difference. Pannie prob had better performance ie faster Flash recycling etc, but trust me image quality on the Canon blew any other camera I've seen in that price bracket out of the water. With most of those Canons you also get full manual features which is a very nice addition. I'm gutted my camera ******ed up, so now just want something cheepish and cheerful which the FS7 and FS15 seem to be.

Each to their own, I have had several Canon S series cameras and am also a DSLR user but never seem to miss manual mode with my TZ7. On the odd occasion that IA mode cannot cope I always get it to do what I want by selecting a scene mode.

Anyway, have a good weekend everyone.

does anyone know where i can get a cheap & good quality sd card for this camera? (sorry if it sounds like a silly question but it's the first time i'm buying a digital camera and all these sd cards out on the market are just confusing me!) cheers :)

Just about to go to bed but play.com is always a good bet.

This one looks okay

http://www.play.com/Electronics/Electronics/4-/3342833/Play-com-4GB-SD-HC-Memory-Card/Product.html

Probably cheaper around but not by much.

Depends what size you want too.

Agreed, I have several of their own brand SD cards in 4,8 and 16GB. None have given any trouble.

Online - NOT on the high street where there's probably more profit in the card than the camera!

Like other posters I've had good service at good prices from Play but no doubt there are others out there too.

If you MUST have it NOW there are sometimes offers in Tesco but very unlikely to beat Play, etc.

Also, don't get carried away with large Gb sizes. You still get hundreds of still pics on a one or two Gb card without the risk to thousands if a larger card gets lost or fails (it can happen). Also back them up afterwards as an SD card is not a secure long term storage medium. I'm off to Australia for a month (can't wait!) and I'll take lots of 2Gb cards and back up on a laptop each day. makes it easier to find the shots I want afterwards too. If you don't have a laptop on a trip you could consider downloading to a storage site via an internet cafe.

thank you soooo much for the tips everyones given me they've been soooo helpful :thumbsup:

is there a particular brand of sd card i should go for with this camera? thanks again :)
