Good: It has a London 2012 Logo on it
Bad: Everything. What a useless camera and manufacturer.
Comment: The camera has never worked from purchase. It takes photos with lines across the image and is over exposed. I've never had such a bad product before. I have dealt with both Panasonic and Tesco.com (where pruchase) to try and replace the product under warranty but after six months and apparent repairs the camera still dones not work. I have never had such a bad treatment from a company under support/warranty and I'm totally unimpressed with the product. I would not recommend a panasonic camera to anyone!
Good: image quality,mega O.I.S. always present and sharp
Bad: Automatic system generates much noise in low light pictures,display
Comment: Problem in low light areas, common in compact Panasonic, in high ISO noise only have problems with highly visible.
Particularly do not like the automatic, night shots in the worst way he seeks to register the object raising the ISO.
The quality of details of the images is slightly above the majority and that's good enough.
Panasonic could bring more natural images to night mode, the Lumix FH20 disappoint me
