Panasonic Lumix ZS100 4K Point and Shoot Camera $489.98 + free shipping at amazon.com for either the black or silver model. It's a decent price drop from the normal $650-$700 range. I don't see a similar price drop at other online stores so seems like this price is exclusive to amazon. The price isn't ridiculously low so doesn't seem like an error (e.g. GX85 at $300 that amazon cancelled lots of orders for), but I think this is the lowest it's ever gone for anywhere?

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01A86MXVE (silver)

Been in the market for a 1" sensor compact camera for awhile. My original target was the Canon G7X Mark II, but seems this Panasonic ZS100 is a better bargain now.

Also qualifies for the Panasonic 3 year warranty offer at http://shop.panasonic.com/3-year-warranty

Did you actually read what I wrote? I didn't say it's a price mistake, I said it's probably not a price mistake! No need for your kind of insulting comment. Just move along if you're not interested.

I think it's a great deal if anyone is in the market for this camera. I've never seen it under $500 new from a reputable seller.

The problem is even saying it's not a price mistake still sets off people's alerts so they'll come in the thread all pissy and TD it.

It comes with the territory and privilege of having that alert. A few negatives is not a big deal at all. Throwing a hissy fit over it is pretty immature and reeks of entitlement and is usually done by those who haven't contributed much.

Thanks OP, I'm not interested in a camera but appreciate you sharing it.

This is a very good camera.

I don't know if their QA has gotten better, but when this was released a year and a half ago you could get a great lens, or one that was not terribly sharp in one corner/on one side. I actually bought three and tested them against a chart and returned the two that weren't good across the entire field.

My only beef with the camera is that some of the settings are buried pretty deep in the menus and it can be difficult, for someone who doesn't shoot with it every day, to remember where something is, or what it's called (i.e. - turning off the focus sensor is called "museum mode" and also silences all sounds).

Overall the quality is pretty good for such a small camera with a wide zoom range.

Looks like Target has the silver one on clearance for the same price, may be they price matched that price. Was going to buy a used one but may go with this, thanks OP! TU.

TU.

There's absolutely no reason for a TD. This is the lowest the camera has ever been.

Are you bothered by the slippery texture of the camera body? I've seen this mentioned in many reviews. If so, did you make any modifications like adding a stick-on grip to address it or you just got used to it?

Also, the other concern I had was the F/2.8-5.9 aperture of the lens, which is not as bright as most lenses on other 1" sensor cameras. Do you find any issues with this impacting image quality in a visible way?

Thanks for pointing this out. I was wondering if Amazon might be price matching a competitor and was searching other sites, but forgot to check Target. Pretty sure now it's a price match to Target's clearance price like you suggest.

I see that Target has 2 ZS100 models on clearance. I think one is black (ZS100K) and one is silver (ZS100S), but they just have the wrong picture and title (using "Silver" in the title) for the ZS100K one.

https://www.target.com/p/panasoni...A-51041142

One drawback from buying at target.com though is that they aren't listed as a qualifying dealer for the Panasonic 3 year warranty offer (http://shop.panasonic.com/3-year-warranty). But it may be easier to do returns at a Target store, although I'm not sure about their return policy on an item like this and it seems their official policy is to only accept returns on unopened items in new condition.
