"14.1-megapixel High Sensitivity MOS sensor is newly developed for the DMC-ZS19 for even higher image quality. This boasts better S/N ratio compared with the 14.1-megapixel MOS sensor in the DMC-ZS19."

So it's better than itself?

I bought a ZS20 at Xmas, for about $250. Very pleased with it. Don't know the feature difference with this model ZS19, but if the spec is close, this is a good deal.

For what its worth, I just purchased one of these when they were on tech.woot the other week. Arrived in perfect condition; you would not know it was not a new camera except for the lack of retail box and the sticker on the side. The 4GB SD card that comes with the bundle is Class 4, Panasonic Branded. The test photos I took were excellent - stabilization is the best I have ever used, giving me good pictures in low light at full 20x zoom with no tripod. I hope this helps aid people in decision making!

The only difference between the 20 and the 19 is the 20 has GPS and the 19 does not - I am happy to not know where I am, and my battery is pleased as well. ;-)

I just bought this on Tech Woot a week or two back. Excellent camera. I have about 7-8 point and shoots and this is definitely the best. Nice video. Great optical zoom. It even takes 3D photos but I haven't been able to check them because you need a 3D TV to view them. Very highly recommended.

Got one of these for my wife during the last sale, she's a hobbyist bird photographer. When you're taking pictures of things that are A. small and B. skittish, a 20x zoom comes in handy. She absolutely loves it, and other than having no retail box there's no way to tell it's a refurb.

I got this recently and it arrived in perfect condition and the shots are clear and crisp. Totally happy with this purchase.

I've had a number of Lumix cameras and all of them have been superior cameras. I keep replacing them because Lumix keeps improving them!

Would not pay attention to current Amazon price...its been replaced by a newer model at a lower price -- and, there are some refurbs offered at Amazon for $122... With that said, this does appear to be a great camera at a great price, so here or there, might be worth considering...

We've owned several Lumix cameras and all have been excellent. With all these telescoping lens cameras (not just Panasonic), when the lens extends at power-up, they tend to suck in lint and other debris sitting on the folded lens. Bottom line, don't carry it loose in your pocket or purse - put it in a camera pouch or at least a ziplock if you plan to "tote" it with you. Keeping it out of dust, lint, dirt environments will keep the internal lens elements clean.

Like others commenting here, just recently bought one of these on Woot and, with the limited use I have made of it so far, it appears to be an excellent camera. Great size for what you get with it.

I bought the DMC ZS7 years ago. Upgraded with this ZS19 camera a few weeks ago from Woot, I'm really happy with Lumix cameras easy and excellent quality.

I thought about it last time it was up, but wasn't sure I wanted a wanted to buy a new camera.I found myself looking at cameras on Amazon last night, and this one seems to be the best in this price range, and is in the form factor I'm looking for. Thanks for the reviews, in for 1!

Try comparing refurbished prices. Amazon price is new with 1 year warranty. They also have used and refurbs starting at #123.

This is an excellent point and shoot with a 20x zoom on a Leica lens. I have the ZS-20, which is identical to this ZS-19, except that the ZS-20 has GPS positioning. The wide angle is wider than on my DSLR lens and the 20x zoom comes in very handy. Here's one photo that I took recently with mine. http://www.flickr.com/photos/tony_wasserman/8460146776

If you need a digicam for yourself or a future gift, it's hard to beat this deal.

There was a camera offered somewhere that you could capture still images while shooting video. I see this camera has separate buttons for stills and video. Can it do that? I'm trying to figure what models I need to be looking at for that specific feature since I hate having to choose between taking video of cute things my kids are doing and snapping photos to print for grandma.

I know you can capture stills from HD video, but I'm just never going to take the time to do that on my computer.

I just wooted this one. I own a Lumix DMC-FZ28 - a more feature rich camera, the higher end of the point and shoot. It's fantastic for when I want to manipulate the shot and capture raw. I can also put on a telephoto converter and take the 18x to 35x.

That being said, I've been wishing for a more portable camera for taking quick snapshots at birthday parties. This one fits the bill.

in the market for a point-and-shoot. can anyone tell me how good this is a getting action shots of the kids and how long it takes to 'refresh' (be ready for the next picture?

This is a good camera. I have had one since they first came out. The only difference between this and the ZS20 is that this one doesn't tag your photos with GPS information. I will say though, I also have the ZS15 and the ZS15 actually has a nicer sensor in it. It has less zoom and no touch screen but the images are a little cleaner than the ZS19/20 and the rest of the features are about the same. The high speed video (I think 240 frames if I remember) is kind of miserable meeces on this camera... the resolution is very low. Its a useless gimmick.

The only annoyance I have about this camera is the touch screen. Its easy to inadvertantly click things if you aren't careful... and I don't know how other people use point and click cameras, but I just keep it in my pocket to grab quick pictures. If I want to be careful I'll bust out my DSLR. Other than that, this is a great camera. Its smaller than a pack of cigs so it fits nice in your pocket.

It has a sport mode where you can fire off a bunch of pictures in a row. Works ok.

It comes with a handy-dandy little case. Keep it in that. :~) (Or it did when I bought it a couple of weeks back...great camera!)

In for one. This will replace an old Canon P&S. Seems like a great camera packed full of features for the price, and the reviews on other websites are great! Heck, the built-in tilt-shift feature alone is going to be a ton of fun. ;-)

It has a macro mode but its not that great. Anything closer than 6 or 8 inches won't focus. The only trick I've figured out to this is stand further back and use the zoom.

The tilt shift actually works too! Its slow because its just processing... you snap the pic and wait a few seconds but the results are pretty good. The HDR pics are neat as well.

I, too, purchased this camera a bit ago on Tech Woot. Great little camera, and I was pleasantly surprised to find an 8GB Class 4 card shipped along with it.

I have a Panasonic Lumix as well. Great specs for the price, even if it is a refurb. If you need a great all-around camera, I don't think you could go wrong with this one.

The CD that comes with the camera is only Windows. A quick Google search did not produce any MAC PhotoFunStudio links, but a (very) superficial scanning of the hits gave only suggestions for workarounds.
