Just a rant... Jeebus H. I bought a $300 Panasonic Lumix Camera exactly a year ago and the LCD screen just went splat on me . The screen now reminds me of a black & white lava lamp. The camera still works, but since there's no manual viewfinder and all of my modes and menus are displayed there on the huge, now-worthless LCD screen, the camera is a worthless piece of $hit to me. And this isn't the first time it's crapped out either. It totally quit working last summer when it was supposed to be under warranty but the repair company claimed that I dropped it (which I didn't ) and there would be no warranty. So I paid $80 to have it fixed back then, too. Now this LCD screen problem. Don't ever buy a Panasonic camera, I've had nothing but problems. Then there's my frickin' iPod. I won't even go into that. It's explained in another thread somewhere I think.
