I decided that I need a backup camera for these types of situation.
Number one: If I have my D90 with 70-200mm lens on it I can’t take a photo of any action around me!
Number two: Some times it’s better not to be as visible in the crowd as you inevitably are with a large camera and lens.
Number three: Going to a party, or supper.
Number four: Last year on our vacations in Dominican Republic walking on the streets I was not feeling too comfortable caring the large camera.
So, that explains the white color. I like it to look as any regular $50.00 point and shoot camera.
I did a lot of research on the internet and I decided that this little Panasonic should be what I need.
Being used to a large DSLR like Nikon D90 with some special lenses the backup camera was not just an easy pick.
I need to have some manual functions, enough megapixels, speed, and the best possible lens to be able to shoot without flash as much as possible.
This camera is just what I was hoping for. After testing it for a couple of days shooting some Macro outside in late afternoon.
Also I tested it indoors at my work shooting details of some machinery.
It does amazing job in low light.
Also the movie quality is just perfect.
I can recommend this camera to anyone who is looking for a small package with lots of guts.

Annbramwell You sound just like my husband, he has a Canon EOS 5D with all the lenses and for exactly the same reasons he now has a Panasonic Lumix too...(in red) great minds think alike! Great pics BTW... What happened to your cat, poor thing!

Eiram Jé, já mám taky Lumix!! Byla to láska na prvni pohled, přesně foťák do kabelky, mám ho pořád při sobě:)
Jediný na co jsem ještě nepřišla, jak s ním fotit černobíle...

DancingDolphin It is INCREDIBLE what a small camera can do these days... I'm with you. I RARELY carry my DSLR any more unless it's a situation where I WANT people to know I'm photographing. It sounds like you're going to love this new toy! Great shots!

IShuttertoThink Yes, I have my trusty Canon Power Shot that I like to keep in my purse, or in the car. It is what I used before I got my Nikon. It's a great little camera, so sometimes I slum........
