Hey! You should know that Panasonic has released a newer version of this product: the Panasonic Lumix FP3.
Panasonic Lumix FX100
Old product. Here's what we had to say when it was released in August 2007:
Panasonic comes out swinging with the 12-megapixel FX100, a bold ultracompact that also features a useful wide-angle lens. Take advantage of that extra wide-scope by shooting in 16:9 widescreen mode. You'll be capturing tremendouslt detailed images with that big CCD; the FX100 lends itself to excellent panoramic enlargements and prints.

Great little camera. I like the Stabilization features, lens, 12 megapixils and the ease of use. The ease that the zoom operates with makes it almost foolproof. This is about the 20th camera that I've owned. I've owned 5 sony(cameras), 1 sharp, 1 panasonic, 2 olympus and a few cheep ones (digital). This panasonic is very easy to use, stable (stabilization feature is great) and the zoom is flawless-it is very-2 settings- stable, which is ususlly a problem with low light and or high zoom-but this stabilization feature enables you to take clear, flawless pictures. I would have liked a gasket system (like the olympus), to keep out rain and water, but otherwise I haven't found any problems. Worth the $375.00+ it cost. Outside of a Nikon, Hasablad, Leica, contax $2500.00+ SLR I think it does a really good job.
