Kurt,

This is as nice of a "point and shoot" camera as your gonna find for the price. Just do both your wife and yourself a favor and get an extra battery pack. You will thank me later. The price listed isn't correct.......its actually only $229 for the camera and included accessories. You'll have to order the extra battery from them for around $20.

P.S.....14.1 mega pixels and 16x optical zoom

What if you woke up tomorrow, with only what you thanked God for today ???

x2 on the Panasonic. Great little camera with a lot of zoom for a point and shoot.

I want to Thank you Guys for turning me on to the Panasonic,I couldn't find one in my area and didn,t want to order one so I got the wife a Nikon S9100 for Christmas and she hated it, so we took it back,we looked at some more Camera's and Finally decided on the Panasonic DMC ZS8 on sale for $169 and she Loves it,I should have known you Guys wouldn't send me down the wrong road,Thanks again,

Winterhawk I still Love your old Hummingbird,

Kurt

Kurt,

For the money......those Panasonics are hard to beat. Now don't forget the "extra battery". You'll thank me later. [saywhat]
