This is the small Panasonic camera I recently bought that weighs almost nothing, has a x8 zoom and practically doesn't leave my pocket, except to take a photo of course. It's a ZX1 in Europe and I understand it's called ZR1 elsewhere. (I can't figure out why they can't have the same reference all over.)

Are you satisfied with it?
I shoot with a compact camera, usually -- but at the same time I need a good optical zoom. My choice some years ago has been the Coolpix S4 -- love the swivel objective, it lets you shoot at any angle --, but now it begins to be somewhat obsolete and exhausted. I was wondering if the Lumix ZX1 could be a good replacement.

I gave my husband a ZX3 for Christmas, in cobalt blue. The reviews were very strong and the price was reasonable. I'll look forward to seeing what your little red wonder can do in 2010!

All the night photos I took recently and some of the Paris walks have been taken with it.
It doesn't replace the FZ38, especially for macros and zoom but it's really a great little camera, which has a wonderful stabilizer, something really important with a small camera for me. I tend to move a lot.

Oh how cute! And an 8x zoom! I'll have to check out this and the ZX3. My G3 is bigger than I enjoy...
