Do you think this camera has some potential ? This is a picture that was taken at a ramp tour at LGA and the other at the Intrepid. Keep in mind they were taken through a bus window. And the third also at LGA
Not a chance, looking at the first and third images. Noisy and pixelated looking. The F-16 (on Intrepid I think?) might be a chance at 1000x667 size if you have a version with the whole plane in picture. Those very close range photos are the only ones where point-and-shoot cameras generally have a chance of adequate quality.
have a look at some images like this one:

Taken with a sophisticated new DSLR? No. Taken with an older Canon 350D, a 400mm F/5.6L and a 1.4x extender. Results are outstanding - considering the long distances involved. Yes, it's probably more costly than a Lumix, but that's just how DSLR cameras are.
That's the difference in quality between a point-and-shoot and a DSLR.
