Got this camera at a great price ($150) last week and have started taking pictures. The zoom is great and the response is fast. the "true" manual is in .pdf form on the CD that comes with the camera. This is a great camera to use and the pictures are very sharp and clear. The one con I would comment on is the use in low light could be better, but this is true on all point and shoot cameras in this category.

This is an upgrade from my ZS8 which I loved, but moisture got inside the lens and left permanent spots on my photos. The price was great from Samy's so I decided to just buy the newer model. I travel alot and the wide angle lens is indispensible for taking shots of scenery, monuments, buildings; and the optical zoom is amazing for a camera this compact. Plus the camera is easy to hold and operate with one hand when necessary.

Judith S. from Silverton, OR This is a great little camera. I just gave away an Olympus 5060. Way over my head. With the Lumix, I have the advantage of terrific photos on auto, but can go to more advanced settings as I get used to the camera. I did a lot of research to determine which model to buy; then once I decided on the Lumix, I researched price. Samy's beat everyone by a mile!

Overall this is a nice camera with easy operation and good quality. My wife loves it. I have an LX-5 that cost a lot more but I think this ZS15 is pretty darn good with similar results.

I just got it yesterday for Christmas and it appears to be OK. The only issue I have so far is it is harder to hold with one hand than my older digital camera.

Robert A. from Lakewood, CO on December 04, 2012:
After doing lots of searching for a reasonably priced point-and-shoot camera with a good wide-angle, I decided on the Panasonic Lumix ZS15. While reading some other reviews for this camera, I saw that this camera may actually have better picture quality than the ZS20. Since I did not feel a need for some of the ZS20 features (even longer zoom, GPS, touchscreen), I decided on the ZS15 instead and was able to get this for a great price. The owners manual that was included did not go in much detail, but I found a 141 page owner's manual on-line. So far I have been pleased with this camera purchase.
