"Easy to carry."

I would highly recommend this Panasonic DC-FZ80K and bundle. I took a 3 hour workshop on how to use the camera and I am good to go. It's terrific and you won't go wrong. It feels wonderful and functions smoothly. It sucks up way more battery life than the D7100/D7200.

I wanted something to capture my kids activities. Panasonic, however, has always had colors that are exactly as our eyes see it! Simple to figure out how to use, even for beginning photographers. So glad I chose the Panasonic DC-FZ80K. The burst rate is pretty good, and the image stabilization is superb.

My old SX700 that was serviceable for years finally gave up and failed. If you receive an error message to turn off and then on remove the lens cap. Color and white balance is generally good. I get great photos, and it does not take long to import them to my laptop. Everything about it is solid and satisfying.

"Well done Panasonic!"

The Panasonic DMC-G7KK captured the action like a pro. It is worth the trade-off when doing astro-photography. But I'd buy from Panasonic again, so they've got that going for them. From my first few casual shots the results blew me away. I use it as a backup camera to my Canon 7D mark II.
