Please help me choose between these two cameras!

I've been offered a free used camera. I have a choice of two: (1) a Panasonic Lumix LX7, or (2) a Panasonic Lumix ZS25 (sticker on front: 16x Optical Zoom, 32x Intelligent Zoom, Leica lens). I know nothing about cameras or photography, and I would like a camera that is easy to use. What are the main differences between these two cameras? What is each better for? Which one of these cameras should I chose, and what considerations should I be weighing? I have the two cameras here, so I can clarify anything in a follow-up. Thanks!

Point-and-shoot camera for sports, kids, nature?

I have an older Lumix point-and-shoot camera, but it often gives me blurred pictures in poor light or during sports events. Will a newer model of Lumix perform better, or is it me? [more inside]

Putting weird lenses on a micro four thirds body

I have a lovely little Lumix GF3. It has a 14mm lense. While I have great fun sticking the camera right in peoples faces to get a picture, I would like to get something a little more versatile. Ideally by buying inappropriate lenses from strange Chinese sites. [more inside]

Searching for a Lumix Li-ion Replacement Battery in Austin

I'm trying to find a replacement battery for my Panasonic Lumix camera in south Austin, TX. The camera is a relatively new model (DMC-FZ200), and I'm having a hard time finding local stores that might carry the battery in stock. The battery is a DMW-BLC12PP 7.2V, 1200mAh/8.7Wh Li-ion. No time for ordering, I need to find something and pick it up tonight. Thank you for your help!

Sony RX100 or Panasonic Lumix LX7?

After being disappointed in yet another set of vacation photos because I didn't want to lug my dSLR around and ended up relying on my phone's mediocre camera, I've decided it's time for a high-end point-and-shoot. I've spent a couple weeks researching and have narrowed it down to two: the Sony RX100 and the Panasonic Lumix LX7. But I'm having a hard time deciding between the two! Do you have experience with either/both that can help me decide? I don't mind spending the extra money on the RX100 if it's worth it, but is it? [more inside]

Lumix Chromakey Viewfinder

My digital camera displays all colors but white on the lcd and viewfinder... Anything white blinks in and out -- but the pictures appear normally when downloaded to the computer. I can't find a firmware upgrade anywhere... It's a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ5.

What is a good successor to the Panasonic Lumix FX07 digital camera?

What is a good successor to the Panasonic Lumix FX07 digital camera? I have seen some accolades for the Lumix FX07 but it doesn't seem to be a current model any longer. I'm looking for a camera that will fit easily in my pocket, and I like that the FX07 has image stabilization and wide-angle shooting.
