Love the camera. Lots of options and easy to use menus

 

This camera is the bees knees! The combination of buttons and menus is just right for me. For example, there is a dedicated button for the anti-shake gadgetry. This is something that deserves a button--digging through the menu for it all the time is a...

This camera has a wonderful set of options that include all the regualrs and a few extras, such as wide-angle, high iso, easy to use buttons, a built in function to send images via usb to a printer

GREAT CAMERA!

 

I AM GLAD THAT I DID NOT PAY MUCH ATTENTION TO THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS THIS CAMERA RECEIVED FROM THE "PROFESSIONAL CRITICS" OUT THERE. I HAVE NOT SEEN THE "NOISE" IN MY PRINTED PICTURES. HAVING A WIDE ANGLE LENSE ON A CAMERA THIS SIZE IS FANTASTIC. I AM...

Easy & Sharp.

 

Excellent camera for around $200. Great for both novice and expert. Color reproduction is fantastic (w/o flash). Better than the Canon, Olympus, Sony (horrible)... You name it. The Nikon photo quality came close, but the Lumix looks so much better.

price, leica lens, "Image Stabilizer", the camera is tiny and looks smart, video quality is great

I chose red instead of blue

Amazing performance

 

i've owned this camera for awhile now and i am very impressed with everything about it, the only thing i may say is that if you want to use the flash in a mid day setting, it is sometimes to bright, but that can be easily fixed.. all and all this is...

Small and Great Picture

flash too bright sometimes

Product Specifications

The 7.2-megapixel Lumix DMC-FX07 has a 28mm wide angle 3.6x optical zoom f/2.8 Leica DC lens housed in a compact body, achieved thanks to the incorporation of a Extra High Refractive Index Aspherical Lens (EA Lens). This wide angle lens lets you easily capture large groups of people indoors or expansive architectural structures and sceneries with dynamic width and rich perspective. The lens part comprises of a Leica DC lens of seven elements in six groups, incorporating four aspherical lenses to generate high optical performance while preserving the compactness of the unit. The Leica DC Vario-Elmarit lens inherits both its name and its outstanding quality from the Leica Elmarit lens, renowned in the film camera world for its superb performance and compact size. To fight against the major cause of blurred images, Panasonic invented the MEGA O.I.S. system taking advantage of its outstanding lens technology to compensate for handshake - a feature which has long been incorporated into the Lumix range of cameras. In addition, the DMC-FX07 also compensates for the other major cause of blurred images - movement of the subject. The world's first Intelligent ISO Control (I.I.C.) function, made possible by the Venus Engine III, detects the subject's movement and adjusts the ISO setting and shutter speed to best suit the subject movement and the light condition automatically. The Venus Engine III also enables high-sensitivity recording up to ISO 1250 in full resolution manually. Panasonic's excellent image stabilizing system allows users to take clear, crisp images in any situation automatically, leaving everything to the camera. The DMC-FX07 adopts the Venus Engine III to realize high sensitivity recording at max. ISO 1250 at full resolution. The noise reduction system is greatly improved by removing noise at the processing stages in series. First, critical noise is roughly undraped and the chromatic noise and the luminance noise are separated to respectively go through the supplemental noise reduction process so that the remaining noise is appropriately minimized.
