This new Lumix is a very easy camera to use. It has a powerful 20X optical zoom, that is about twice the zoom of most other digital cameras. When you set it to the automatic picture taking mode, you simple point, zoom and take a great picture! Also, this camera takes pictures faster than most digital cameras because there is alot less hesitation from when you press the button to when it snaps the picture. This is great if you have kids and pets that never sit still like I have!
