Panasonic Lumix DMC-S2 First Impressions Review$109.99
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-S2 is a very simple, straightforward camera with a good range of features. It is lacking in some areas, though, with a shorter zoom range and feature set than some. But this is an entry level camera that should cost less than $100, so that is not surprising.
In our limited hands-on time with this camera, we found that it was easy to use and fitted well into the hand, but it has a few issues. The more expensive models in Panasonic lineup have a dedicated video shutter button, which makes it easy to start recording video. The DMC-S2 does not have this, so switching from still images to video is slower, and you are more likely to miss a shot. But that might be an acceptable compromise for a camera that is as low cost as this one is likely to be. No pricing information or availability for this camera had yet been released by Panasonic.
