Default Need info regards this camera

A friend of mine is keen on buy the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1 Camera. I wondered if anyone knows much about this camera. Is it worth the money for the lens even though it only has the 2 megapixels, I feel that at least 3 mega pixels would be a better deal.

Ask on the Panasonic board there are several FZ1 owners there.

It is very compact for a 12X stabilized zoom. People like the camera even though it is purely point and shoot. There is a FZ2 firmware upgrade you can buy for it that gives it a little capability, but still not what anyone who is accustomed to having manual settings would probably be happy with. For a lightweight point and shoot with a 12X stabilized lens it is a great little camera if 2Mp is sufficient. Compared to a 5Mp camera with a 3X zoom it will get a really long telephoto shot with more pixels in the photo area than the 5Mp.

Panasonic has discontinued the camera but they are still available new.
