    (Panasonic Lumix DMC-FP-1)
    - Purchased Aug. 2010
    - This camera operates just like a “Personal Computer”.
    - With the large LCD screen, selecting files, and operations, is very user friendly.
    - The “Intelligent Auto” mode button, is also very helpful.
    - For download, there is a “direct” USB communication port from the camera, to the personal computer.

    Supplied Software:
    (Panasonic PHOTOfunSTUDIO 5.0)
    - Latest updated available software: Version 5.00 L209

    My Operating System:
    - Windows XP Home Edition – Service Pack 3
    - Firewall = Yes (Zone Alarm)
    - Anti Virus = Yes (Vipre)

    - The camera works great.
    - The personal computer, does recognize that there is a new USB connection.

    - The supplied and “updated” communication software, does “NOT” operate or communicate, with the personal computer, or camera.
    - The personal computer will go into ‘lock up” doing new “hardware” searching.

    - Where and / or when, will Panasonic release a software program, with the correct software drivers, so one can down load their files, from the camera, to their personal computer ?
    - Why is there “no” Panasonic technical help, to revolve this issue, with other Windows versions ?


    I would only give this a very poor “Product Review”, due to a very unstable or non operating, supplied, software.
