Editor's Review

Panasonic's Lumix FS15 is a trim, ultracompact digital camera intended for casual photographers. This sleek model offers 12.1 megapixel photos and an above-average 5x optical zoom, a nice perk for a camera of this size. In addition to that, the FS15 also features a wide-angle 29mm Leica lens, for larger, more inclusive photographs. For novice users, the 'iA' intelligent auto mode will handle all the heavy lifting and leave you free to snap away, without having to worry about how the final product will look.

Panasonic Lumix FS15 Reviews by Digital Camera-HQ Users

Not so good (Nandan Dhar — 12/16/2009)

The photos come out fine in good day light. In low light conditions the photos are pretty bad. My Fuji 3.2MP camera used to take good pictures in low light condition.
It is easy to use and is very light.

perfect (kristy — 10/17/2009)

after searching for a great point and shoot, I finally found what I was looking for. Great quality and easy to use. The Leica lens makes this camera what it is.

Great Compact Camera (Chris — 08/31/2009)

I bought this from an online retailer and received it last week. Of course, I had to "play" with my new toy indoors and out, during the daytime and night, in darkened rooms and with incandescent lighting, and with the video. Needless to say, I'm very impressed. I did a lot of research online prior to buying this camera, and had it narrowed down to a few different models. The Intelligent Auto feature works very well, and I like the different scene settings available. The burst feature also works very well. I have read some review of people disappointed by the cycle time when using flash, but I am pleased. I have also taken video with this and am very happy with the clarity and lack of "choppiness" with the video feature. The menus are very easy to use, and the camera is very nice and compact. I bought this to replace another 1 yr old camera I lost and while I loved that camera, this one takes much better photos. I'm especially happy with the lack of "overly warm" exposure in artifical light.

Indeed an amazing pocket camera! (muadz mohtar — 07/08/2009)

Pros: Beautiful pics even in indoors, 5x optical zooms, easy navigations, clear lcd, lightweight

Cons: Cannot zoom while recording motion pics ( but u can zoom before u take movies), and that's about it!

Great camera! (Cheyenne — 05/15/2009)

I bought this camera for $149.99 at Costco (price included an SD card and a camera case) and it is wonderful. I read a lot of reviews and read up on several compact cameras with a 5x+ zoom. I ended up returning a Canon and Nikon and went with the Panasonic. The picture quality is outstanding, the zoom is excellent, and it is small enough to fit in my purse. I would highly recommend this camera if you are looking for a good, everday, simple camera to carry with you all the time. I've taken a bunch of pictures already and they all came out great.
