|The 28mm wide-angle lens lets you easily capture large groups of people indoors or expansive architectural structures and scenes with dynamic width and rich perspective, even from short distances.The DMC-FH20 sports a powerful 8x optical zoom lens (35mm camera equivalent: 28-224mm). This gives you highly natural expressions from people and animals that you can't get close to. And its slim, compact, pocket-sized body can easily go wherever you do for both everyday snapshots and traveling.When you don't know which mode will give you the best shooting results, or when a sudden photo opportunity pops up and you don't have time to make any settings, simply choose iA (Intelligent Auto) mode by simply pressing the dedicated button and let the camera do it all for you. You just choose iA mode, aim at your subject, and shoot. 4 detection and correction functions are simultaneously activated to optimize the settings, so you get stunning photos every time.The DMC-FH20 can record motion images in high-definition (1,280 x 720 pixels at 30 fps in motion JPEG format). The pixel mixed readout method enables bright motion-image recording even in low-light settings. The DMC-FH20 can also record full-size motion images in WVGA (848 x 480 pixels at 30 fps) or standard motion images in VGA (640 x 480 pixels at 30 fps) and QVGA (320 x 240 pixels at 30 fps).The energy-saving Venus Engine IV image-processing engine and the efficient, rechargeable lithium-ion battery which has been slimmed down to fit into thinner camera bodies work together to extend the shooting time of the DMC-FH20. This lets users take approx. 300 shots on a single battery charge.|

Easy to use; flexible lens in a compact metal body; very good value for features, performance, and photo quality.
Feature set might be too basic for some.
Panasonic's Lumix DMC-FH20 is a very good value for anyone in need of a basic point-and-shoot with a midrange zoom.

So far I love everything, but Im still learning the camera. I take a lot of Macro shots, and it has a special feature just for that, so I'm happy.
Color stays vivid at close range shots, Zoom feature is great. Normal pictures are awesome.
It has many features to have fun with. Best of all, it's easy to use
I looked at the comparisons on line to see what one shot camera rated best for year 2010, and the Panasonic fh20, was high in the top 10 best camera list
This is a very good camera. It is particularly good, better than the newer model DMC FH-25 (which I also own) in very low light. Panasonic Customer Service people are great. I had a particular low light question about my newer model so I called them and they researched it with their engineers in Japan before calling me back with specifics.
It turns on very quickly, has great burst speeds and an exceptional zoom for a small compact camera. The Intelligent Auto button on top is a great feature that can make anyone look like a professional. The Macro features work well and produce very detailed pics. This camera is simple to use and easily mastered. I think this is a can't miss purchase.
Easy to use as a point and shoot, but has many additional options - equally easy to access and use. 8X zoom more than most other cameras in this price range that I researched; 14 megapixels more than adequate. Only drawback I care about: does not seem to have a macro setting.
