I just need small camera with good qulity pics i no need something special with lot of settings so i think that one suit my needs, all Panasonic Lumix cameras making great pictures....
I can't find anyon you tube
paid just under £100 I think for the normal dmc-s3 about a year ago, and it's good. Panasonic's budget cameras are v good, easy to use, and great photos. 3rd party batteries work in them as well, which are about £10 from Amazon.
No review. May be because of special edition stfuff.
This camera is a Panasonic S3 with the Olympics Logo - that's the only difference.

Loads of reviews here;…294

This is the same model - just without the Olympics Logo

bought it for my mother, nice camera, good price.
its priced at £35.79 now so i ordered one
Just ordered one as a spare as my TZ6 broke yesterday with a system error - zoom- which sounds expensive :-( Not as high spec but for this price it will be fine for a while until I find out if mine is repairable or not!
Ordered at £35.79 inc case (click on link for the case - it is free with LOADS of other Panasonic cameras too if you search the full promotion). Amazon now says delivery within 2-3 weeks. There were 2 left in stock when I ordered with estimated dispatch on Monday and delivery 28th-30th June - fingers crossed!
Great find - Thanks.
